Welcome! Get the gist as they drop...


No fewer than ten government approved education institutions in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State have been earmarked for rehabilitation through the state government Inter Ministerial Direct Labour Cordinating Commitee.

The Local Government Area is also listed among the benefiting Areas for the uninterrupted power supply generated at the Ekim Electricity Sub station under construction.

The State Governor Mr Udom Emmanuel announced this at St Lukes Primary School, Ikot Esenam Obom in Oruk Anam Local Government Area, during the constituency briefing and empowerment programme of  Rt. Hon. Udo Kieran Akpan, member representing Oruk Anam State Constituency in the House of Assembly.

 Governor Emmanuel, in company of his wife, Martha, said that the focus of his administration in ensuring uninterrupted electricity supply lie in the initiative of achieving stability in the economy by attracting mega industries as well as promoting micro businesses in the state.

He said :  "I want to assure Oruk Anam people that you are among the five local government areas that would enjoy at least, 20 hours a day, of electricity supply as soon as Ekim sub station is completed".

He added :"We want to implement projects that would impact on the grassroot, I stand on those promises and I reassure you that with God on our side, we would deliver on all of them".

The State Chief Executive also noted that the present administration is committed to providing critical infrastructure to the populace and promised to deliver quality roads in Oruk Anam Local Government Area to reduce traffic on  the East -West road.

While commending Honourable Akpan, for touching the lives of his constituents in a unique way, Governor Emmanuel called on the beneficiaries to make good use of the facilities and announced  a donation to complement the effort as well as scholarship to Miss Esther Dan, a blind student of Social Studies in the state College of Education.

The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Barrister Onofiok Luke said  that the Legislators have showed tremendous commitment  to grassroot  development stressing that they would continue will continue to  partner  the governor to deliver on the Akwa Ibom project.

Barrister Luke explained  that empowerment programmes undertaken by the Legislators are borne out of love and sacrifice of the Assembly members for their constituents and used the occasion to clear air on the budgetary provisions said to have been earmarked for constituencies by uninformed critics,

"there is no such money voted for constituency briefings and empowerment, what is being done here today, is out of sacrifice to complement government efforts at improving lives at the grassroots and to appreciate the people who voted us into office".

The Speaker acknowledged with delight that the law makers have keyed into what he described as 'the shared vision", which he initiated in 2012 explaining that the idea was to return law makers to their respective  constituencies to present the scorecard of their representation saying  that more legislators are gearing up to do same.

The Council Transition Chairman,  Mr. Ubong Idiong, Senatorial District Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  Mr. Cletus Eshiet, PDP  stakeholder, Mr. Vitalis Unang and a Community leader, Mr. Sunny Okoko,in their goodwll messages  expressed appreciation to the governor for distributing the dividends of democracy across the state and solicited  more government support in the construction and completion of roads in the area.

They described Hon. Akpan's representation as effective and satisfactory and commended his thoughtfulness at complementing government efforts in the Local  Government, pledging their unalloyed support to the Governor  Emmanuel-led administration beyond the present term of office.

Hon. Akpan, in his remark thanked the Governor for giving prime consideration to  the local government on various road construction projects and ensuring the completion of other projects initiated by the immediate past administration in the area.

Hon. Akpan, the House Leader and a two- term representative in the State Assembly, said that apart from his law making assignment, he was mandated to return to his constituency to report his activities to the people who found him worthy to be their representative and  thanked his colleagues  for finding  him fit to be the House Leader in the 6th Assembly.

He told the people that he has sponsored 3 bills, co-sponsored 8 bills and several motions to contribute to building a viable society in Akwa Ibom State, adding that beneficiaries of the empowerment programme were carefully selected across the wards in the constituency to reward their hardwork and commitment.

While applauding the Governor's strides in the education sector Hon. Akpan declared  that Oruk Anam people were solidly in support of the Governor's second term agenda.

He donated  mini buses, motorbikes, generating sets, wrappers, computers/printers, sewing machines, hair dryers, video camera, customized exercise books for schools, barbing equipments, carpentry tool boxes and cash for business support and also doled out scholarship and bursary to students of the area.

The event which drew a large crowd from the political class, government functionaries, traditional institutions, Socio cultural  groups, women and youth groups  also witnessed mass defection of members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the local government area, to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) . The decampees were  received into the party by the state Governor Mr Udom Emmanuel.
