PRESS RELEASE: Speaker Lebo expresses shock at demise of lawmaker, Ukpukpen

The Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly Rt Hon John Gaul Lebo has expressed shock over the sudden demise of his colleague and friend, Rt Hon Stephen Akomaye Ukpukpen who died Wednesday May 30, 2018.

He described Hon Ukpukpen passage as very saddening, heart wrenching and a great loss not only to the Assembly community but to the entire state.

"As Member Representing Obudu State Constituency not only was he a good representative of his people, he was a very outspoken legislator who always stood for the truth.

His vibrancy and legislative know-how which traversed the 7th apparently earned him a second term in the Assembly and subsequently, Chairman House Committee on Public Accounts. 

We have lost a gem in the 8th Assembly. His wisdom and legislative acumen will forever be missed.     

Stephen indeed, has left a vacuum in the 8th Assembly".
