She was one of the eight Assembly members that refused to move to the All Progressives Congress(APC) with Governor Ben Ayade.

Late Ironbar will be remembered for insisting the Chief Judge of Cross River Justice Akon Ikpeme should be confirmed despite the popular notion that she is an indigene by marriage and not birth.

She became the second Assembly member to die in the current dispensation.
