GOV. UDOM EMMANUEL: BUILDING AKWA IBOM IN A PEACEFUL STYLE

Wisdom Bassey

Upon his assumption in office, Gov. Udom Emmanuel met a state struggling to put an abled and skilled population into productive engagements and promised to change that ugly picture. This commitment, I guessed, was to check the tide of brain drain and guide against young people being enticed into crime as a way of survival. Job openings in government set-ups soon became a common occurrence in Akwa Ibom State and investments in the agricultural sector also opened up opportunities for numerous young people in the state to get something doing.

When it comes to road infrastructure in the state, I doubt any past governor will come near Gov. Udom Emmanuel. An acknowledgment of the impressive record set in road construction.

In six years, Governor. Udom’s administration has built thousands of kilometers of roads, bridges and just last month he commissioned Ikot Oku Ikono Flyover which happened to be the longest flyover in South-South to facilitate both inter and intrastate transits. Rural roads received facelift and problems usually associated with connecting communities are fast becoming a thing of the past.

The horrible experience of people over the frequent occurrence of flooding is fast fading as Udom’s administration exploring technology to tackle the challenge.

As an indication of his resolve to make Akwa Ibom state the top destination for investors, Gov. Udom has acquired more than 5 Aircraft to Ibom Air and is owned by the state, which will boost the aviation industry as well as the economy of the State.

Also, the construction of a new terminal which is designed to meet the highest intelligence, Smart Standard, and will match any of the internationally ranked terminals when completed, will bring Obong Victor Attai Airport to international standard and in turn, ease access to the state. For so long, the Airport was left to rot, but thank God for Gov. Udom Emmanuel who has positioned it as one of the best Airports in the country and brings the desired benefits to this state.

And to crown it all, under Gov. Udom Emmanuel’s administration, a lot of good things are happening when it comes to Sports. For the first time in the history of Akwa United to emerge the NPFL Trophy and champion of the 2020/2021 season.

Udom is turning the state into a top sporting center in the country with the investment in necessary infrastructure and the establishment of several competitive centers across the State. Apart from the opportunities that the facilities will bring for athletes in the state, the revenue prospects that hosting sporting events offer to the state and local businesses cannot be overemphasized.

Demonstrating his avowed commitment to keep his people safe, Gov. Udom Emmanuel has given deserved attention to strengthening security in the state. From providing necessary equipment to all security agencies in the state to encouraging communal cohesion. Udom facilitates a safe and secure Akwa Ibom, a condition that is encouraging businesses in the state to thrive.

Gov. Udom Emmanuel is transforming Akwa Ibom state and his giant strides since taking charge of the state is heartwarming. With a strong desire for a new thing and hard work,
Only God who started this great impressive achievement will bless and keep you Your Excellency, and we pray #ThatSameGod will continue to lead us to come 2023.
