A/Ibom Councillorship candidate recreates Martha Udom Emmanuel’s Social Intervention model
The true case of the milk of human kindness came alive last weekend when the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) councillorship candidate for Abak Urban Ward 2, Queen Sandra Okon Bassey, through her foundation, The Sandra Bassey Save-a-Life Foundation raised hopes and illumined lives of the indigent children within her ward.
The gesture according to the benefactress, was inspired by the family and social intervention model instituted by the wife of the Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Her Excellency, Dr Martha Udom Emmanuel and a sneak peek into her plans for the immediate people of her ward.
According to the erstwhile royal who also doubles as a renowned cobbler, the gesture to provide basic school kits to pupils in the area was borne out of her desire to touch and impact lives in a every little way possible, believing that as an incoming representative of the area, she had a social contract to better than lives of her people.
Queen Sandra while speaking during the visit to the schools particularly heaped praises on the wife of the Akwa Ibom Governor, Dr (Mrs) Martha Udom Emmanuel whom, she believes has been an ‘exemplary icon of virtue and inspiration to all Akwa Ibom women and one who showed the mantra of social and family intervention through her pet project, FEYreP as well as hailed the State First Lady’s efforts in seeing that more women got into elective positions in the state.
She promised to use her, modest platform and office to interpret the vision of the Governor’s wife in her ward and impact the lives of her people generally, while urging the pupils to live up to their dreams.Among the schools visited included her village Primary School, Manta and Government Primary School, Ukpom where writing materials as well as school shoes were distributed to pupils.
