Eteng Jonah Williams has donated a piece of land to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Ikot Eneobong 8 Miles, Calabar the Cross River State capital, for the construction of a church and priest’s residence.

He disclosed the donation during the official handover exercise and signing of the deed of donation documents in his office last week in Calabar.

Williams said he was led by the spirit to donate without request from the church, stating that churches played significant roles in his elections as a lawmaker over the years, he pleaded for their continued support through prayers. He promised that he would not relent in advancing the work of God.

Responding, the Priest-in-charge of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, Rev. Father Augustine Asuquo expressed gratitude to the Speaker for his love and generosity to the Church with the special gift of land.

He said: “It is uncommon to receive this kind of gift from someone who is not a parishioner here. We treasure this great gift of land to the church and will remain grateful to you for this magnificent act of kindness.

The highlight of the exercise was the presentation of the award to the APC Candidate, Central Senatorial District, Rt. Hon. Eteng Williams for his selfless service to God and humanity.
