WHEN CHARITY IS MISSING AT HOME!
…..”Before you impress the street,make sure nobody is hungry in your family”. -Anonymous
The youths of Eket, Esit Eket, Onna and Ibeno local government Areas of Akwa Ibom state otherwise known as Eket Federal Constituency are shocked by the deliberate actions of some members of His Excellency, Governor UDOM Emmanuel ‘s inner circle to treat the empowerment of Eket Federal Constituency youths with kid gloves and reckless abandonment, when they are suppose to always stand in for the Governor and protect the image of this government at all times.
For seven years now what some of them do is to impress outsiders while the youths of Eket Federal Constituency are suffering and have nothing to show courtesy of this government.
It would shock you to know that for seven years now, no member of the Governor’s inner circle have deem it necessary to empower any youth from Eket, Esit Eket, Onna and Ibeno.
It will also shock you to know that amidst our agitation that the present state administration should empower Eket Federal Constituency youths within the remaining ten months that the director of protocol has just facilitated the appointment of Governor Udom’s supporter outside Eket Federal Constituency, we are not against it, we congratulate the new appointee but all we are saying is that Eket youths must be empowered for posterity sake.
Mr.Edmund’s stock in trade for seven years now is to facilitate the empowerment of people outside with juicy appointments as SSA’s, SA’s, to Governor, Chairmen and members of statutory boards, contracts, inter-ministerial jobs etc; while abandoning the youths of Eket Federal Constituency to their fate.
During the immediate past administration, Mr. Aniekpeno Mkpanang who served as director of Protocol to Governor Godswill Akpabio had built houses for his Ikot Ekpene youths, bought cars for them, established businesses for them , gave them scholarships and so on.
With all due respect, we challenge Mr Edmund Uffang to mention how many youths he has empowered in Onna, Eket , Esit Eket and Ibeno for seven years now.
As 2023 beckons, what will the youths of Eket Federal Constituency remember this government for? Or is it another Federal Constituency Governor that will do what an Eket Federal Constituency Governor is suppose to do for us?.
Let’s look for the black goat 🐐 when it is not yet dark.
God bless Governor Udom Emmanuel as he empowers Eket youths.
