Thank You For Making Me Stand Tall Amongst Women, Adams Reveals Obono-obla Role In Her Appointment

Member of the Presidential Committee on Constitutional and Electoral Reforms, Barr. Cecilia Adams has described Chief Okoi Obono-obla as a voice for the downtrodden who doesn't need to know you before rendering any kind of assistance.

Adams, who was reacting to an article which narrates how Obono-obla has touched lives despite his short stay in government revealed that she was aided by the All Progressives Congress, APC Chieftain to get appointment from President Muhammadu Buhari even without knowing or meeting him.

She explained that her appointment into the Presidential Committee on Constitutional and Electoral Reforms was as a result of Obono-obla 's recommendation.

"The truth has no hiding place! I am excited and elated to agree with you , Chief Okoi Obono Obla is everything you have said and much more. He is an amazing, illustrious son, a voice to be reckoned with, a voice for the underdog or the downtrodden. A tried and tested Advocate.

He's a man for all season, a great man of the people , who transcends Ethnic, Cultural and political divide. A forward thinker, progressive and a great Nigerian!!! A servant leader, a supreme human being! Chief Obono-obla is a treasure and an assert, not just to the central Senatorial district but to Cross River State.

I know that there are those who would say that because he recommended me for the Committee, hence my praise. If the truth be told, Chief did not know me from beginning. It took one phone call and a follow up CV. And I was on my way to sit on the most high profile presidential Committee . A dream come true", she said.

Adams added that "in my book, Chief Okoi Obono Obla is and will always be an investor in Human beings. A quality I admired most about Chief while in office, as the Senior Special Assistant to the president on Prosecution is his open door policy. I want to use this opportunity to thank Chief Okoi Obono Obla for making me stand tall amongst women ".
