The recognition of the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel by the Africa Regional Journal as one of the 100 inspiring individuals in Africa does not come as a surprise. For any keen watcher of the revolutionary commitment of Governor Udom, since assumption of Office, as the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom, you will clearly understand, that his aspirations transcend the development of the state, to its optimum local capacity. Governor Udom’s aggresive commitment clearly exhibit his desire, towards a global positioning of Akwa Ibom State, beyond the shores of Nigeria.
The aggresive determination of the Udom’s administration, is not only visible in the radical investment in human capital and Infrastructural development of Akwa Ibom State, from what he inherited in 2015, it could also be seen, in the feat attained by his administration in enterprise development, industrialization and aviation development among others. Recall that recently, the Udom administration, sealed a deal for the purchase of 10 New aircraft for the state government owned Ibom Air, at the Dubai Air show. That being the only sub national government to do so at that event.
The Udom’s vision are clear. It is about building a future for the State. Governor Udom is investing massively in the Today and Tomorrow of Akwa Ibom and its citizens. No doubt his good works are attracting such International accolades like such, from the Africa Regional Journal.
Congratulations to the Workaholic Governor and his Team. This is a tonic for more works.
