“If Betta has; small or big, Abi and Cross Riverians enjoy. She is a compassionate giver” – Chief Eval Ezong
It was indeed a merry Christmas for the people of Adadama ward, Councilors from the 10 wards in Abi Local Government Area and the chapter leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, as they benefitted from the Christmas gifts presented by Governor Ayade’s Commissioner, Dr Betta Edu.
According to Chief Eval Ezong, “Dr Betta Edu has been a blessing to us since 2011 even before she got into any political position. Our Daughter Dr Edu will always come back to either carry out free health outreach or distribute food and clothing items free to our people. She raised the Bar in 2017 when she started paying fees and other levies for all our children in this ward. Even when she left as Director General of Primary Healthcare Development Agency, she still continued to pay the fees before she got appointed as Commissioner. The Entire Abi LGA is very grateful to Governor Ben Ayade for the gift of Dr Betta Edu as a Commissioner. We feel the impact already; she is a leader that listens with open heart ready to help. If she has small or big, Abi, Cross Riverians will enjoy. She is a compassionate giver.”
On their part, the various heads of the schools said: “words are not enough to appreciate our daughter and mother for the consistent gift of free education and school levies for children in the ward since 2017. One thousand one hundred and fifty Naira (#1150) as fees for each child against the number of children in the ward is a lot. It only take a heart which understands the value of education to continue this investment in our Children. The children pray for her all the time at morning assembly. We see the results of their prayers. Thank you for this relieve to parents in Adadama.”
