A prominent youth leader in Cross River North Senatorial District, Aruku Monkom who embarked on 474.9km long trek from the state in honour of Senator Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe arrived at Abuja on Saturday after five days.


The young man who flagged off his marathon walk at Federal Government College, Obudu on March 19 arrived Abuja at about 11.45 am and was welcomed by the lawmaker and other supporters.


“I trekked day and night, and thank God I was able to make it here after, and embarked on the long walk as my only way to appreciate the quality representation our Distinguished Senator has given the Cross River North in the Senate.


“But I did video of myself in every popular location on my way down here starting from the Federal Government College, Obudu, down to Makurdi, Akwanga, keffi, Mararaba and finally Abuja,” Monkom said.


Richard who is the Coordinator, PDP Youth Movement in Cross River told journalists that he was in Abuja to present an award to Jarigbe and to encourage him to continue with his good work for the zone.


“I have only met Distinguished Senator once and this is my first time coming closer to him, and embarking on the long walk was the only way I felt I could honour him for standing with our people.”


According to him, the lawmaker has become a model for everyone in the society due to his standout legislative performance which is basically on human capital and infrastructural development in the zone.

Receiving the youth in his house, the lawmaker commended him for his amazing show of solidarity.

Jarigbe who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Gas, said the action by Monkom will spur him more to work for his people.
