Senator Gershom Bassey erects billboard with his phone numbers on it, urging people to call him for financial assistance... they say he has attended to 482 constituents already

Ok, this is happening... people are saying that the Senator representing Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State Senator Gershom Bassey, is out here making a difference.

According to reports, Senator Bassey erected billboards with his phone numbers boldly written on them urging members of his constituents to call him at will. The billboards were mounted across the seven local government areas in the district.

Between the 17th and 26th of January, 2018, 482 constituents have contacted the Senator.

We hear he also gave the sum of N585,000 naira to 68 persons as donations, gifts, aid for medical attention, payment of school fees, burial assistance, wedding aid and other things based on requests by his constituents.

George, the Special Assistant to the Senator told Emem Etto's Blog, that they have received at least 183 phone calls, 144 text messages, 48 WhatsApp messages and 35 emails within the short period, adding  that the units, wards and local government areas of those who have made contact are on hand and can be verified.

He said he was aware some people complained they couldn't reach the lines in time. According to George, the high traffic on the lines was one of the reasons some calls experienced a little delay before going through but no call has been ignored or neglected so far.

“Those lines are functional twenty four hours and if you are on Whatsapp, kindly send a message to these numbers and see if it won’t go through or your message would not be answered.”
He said people should be patient if their calls do not go through at first attempt  as someone else may be on the line.

“We have received 35 mails with accompanying requests, Cvs and proposals already. The Senator is working on them and has also  referred some to the state governor whom he has discussed some of the issues with, and the governor is on top of the matter on  such issues. The Senator  is a man of honour who keeps his word and has avowed  commitment to the welfare of  his people and will not  post fake contact lines on billboards for any reason, he said. 
So if you are from Calabar South local Government Area of Cross River State, stop complaining and go and call your Senator biko.
