Ingenuity, Strategic Continuity, Secret Of Akwa Ibom Gov’s Success – Ememobong

Thu May 19th, 2022 - Akwa Ibom

The Akwa Ibom State government has advanced inventiveness, statesmanship and strategic execution of public projects as some of the reasons responsible for the success recorded by the administration of incumbent Governor Udom Emmanuel.

The State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Comrade Ini Ememobong, made the revelation Wednesday, during a fact-finding visit to his office by the participants of Senior Executive Course 44 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategy Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Plateau State.

Ememobong, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in his ministry, Akparawa James Edet, maintained that Akwa Ibom now ranks very high as a destination for investments and tourism.

“Akwa Ibom is a very peaceful state, and it is also considered a home by people of practically every other tribe in Nigeria.

“Through ingenuity, good leadership, and superior performance, the Governor has been able to bring the state to the concentrated imagination of all the things that represents good governance,” he said.

While identifying strategic continuity of viable projects as a means of sustaining good governance, Ememobong drew his analogy from the Akwa Ibom Airport, which was initiated by the administration of Obong Victor Attah, and subsequently improved upon by successive administrations to the extent of becoming a home to Nigeria’s first-ever state-owned airline, Ibom Air, a signature project of the administration of Governor Emmanuel.

In his remarks, Brig. Gen. C. F.J Udaya, mni (Rtd), who is the secretary/director of Administration, NIPSS and leader of the delegation, he intimated his host that his team members were in the state, specifically the Ministry of Information as the mouthpiece of the state government, to obtain first-hand information about the administration of local government areas, especially the challenges, options and opportunities of local governance in the state.

Accordingly to Brig. Gen. Udaya, “The choice of Akwa Ibom as part of our tour around the states of the South-South region was not without a purpose. The decision was borne out of the good things that we have studied about your state.”
