 The Senator representing the Southern Senatoral District of  Cross River State, Senator Gershom Bassey, has said he had touched the lives of many people in his  constituency as their Representative irrespective of tribe, religion ans pitocal party.
 
 As a result, he said “I am a father to all  those who reside in the district and therefore would not discriminate based on religion, ethnicity or political affiliation”.
Senator Bassey stated this in Calabar when he chaired the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria  Men’s  Association 2018 Fathers’ programme to celebrate the role of the man as the head of the family.
According to him, “a father does not discriminate among his children whatever their sex or beliefs are and as such i will continue to play the role of the father to give everyone in the district the sense of belonging”.
A man, he said, “should not only be the father to his children but to all who come across him and that will make the society a better place as no one will feel rejected or  left out of the scheme of things”.
Bassey who was represented by Barrister Ekanem Bassey, added that a father should be able to provide for his children and also those under his care so that they too will appreciate the need to love and care for others when they grow up.
According to him “it is the input the father makes in their children and immediate community that makes them role models like Abraham in the Bible and that goes  a long way in engendering development  in the society”.
He made a cash donation towards the completion of the ongoing church school project at Akpabuyo  which he said was his commitment to the growth of education in the district.

 

Senator Bassey advised the committee handling the school project to be judicious in their spending as well as to ensure that the project was completed on schedule.
