The Convener of CMC awards who is prominently reckoned for being vocal in appealing for the common good of the citizens is a man who says what he does, and does what he says. Ambassador Cornel Udofia can be likened to a lighthouse in the uncharted waters of the turbulent seas of the body polity.
According to him, ‘’Taking up the challenge of meeting up the needs especially in a time like this, is a crucial step towards alleviating the living standards of our people. It is sad to hear in the news how government have done little or nothing in taking care of her citizens during this stay-at-home period, despite the agonizing plea of the poor. Myself and my able team, however, thought it necessary and took the steps in the right direction in making many to smile and putting food on their tables. Even if the menace of Covid-19 is holding the world by the throat, we owe ourselves the duty of showing love to the needy, kindness to the homeless, and care for those around’’.
