Senator Gershom Bassey donates to Church-owned school, says 'I'm father to all'



Senator representing Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State, Gershom Bassey has declared himself father of all. Senator Bassey says he is father to all who reside in the district and would never discriminate anyone based on religion, ethnicity or political affiliation.

Senator Bassey made the assertion in Calabar over the weekend when he chaired the 2018 Father's Day programme at the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria.
Gershom Bassey during his speech said a father does not discriminate amongst his children whatever their sex or beliefs, hence his decision to continue to play the role of of a father in the district, in order to give everyone a sense of belonging. He said:

“A man 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”.
Senator Bassey who was represented by Barrister Ekanem Bassey said a father should be able to provide for his children and those under his care so that they too will appreciate the need to love and care for others when they grow up.
‘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 financial donations to the church to help facilitate the building of the church-owned school in Akpabuyo which he said was his commitment to the growth of education in the district.
