Udom Emmanuel

Aniefiok Macaulay

Whether or not the immediate past administration admits it, the present government has beaten its ugly records of financial misappropriation.

With the attraction of 18 functional industries to the mainstream of economic development in the state, Governor Udom Emmanuel has positioned himself as a wonder and surprise to the APC and fans of Senator Akpabio.

The Rice Mill, Kings Flour Mill, Plywood factory, Fertilizer blending plant, Syringe factory and others are testaments to this fact.

Akpabio who is unarguably dumbfounded that Udom Emmanuel, with the little resources coming to Akwa Ibom, has managed to pull these magnitudes of tangible projects is also shaken that his miniature achievements would seem inconsequential.

It is on record that Governor Udom Emmanuel, since the commencement of his administration, has undertaken a giant leap in road construction. So far, over 1700 km of roads and 40 Bridges have been undertaken in addition to rehabilitation of many rural roads across the state some of which are: dualization of 19.5km Eket-Ibeno road, construction of 2.1km road around State Secretariat annex and Believers Assembly, Mbiabong Etoi, Uyo; Construction of 6.41km Nto Edino-Ekwere Azu road with 2.45m span bridges in Obot Akara; Construction of 1.5km Nsikak Eduok -Tropicana outfall drain, 6.1km Atan offot road in Uyo, Idiaba- Nda Nsit- Ikot Abasi (Nung Udoe) road in Nsit Atai, 5.0km Ikot Usop- Ikot Edeghe - Ikot Ekpuk road with 30m span bridge in Mkpat Enin, 3.5km Ikot Udom road with 15m span bridge in Ibiono Ibom, construction of gully erosion control facilities at Oron/ Isangedighi road, Oron Urban and several others including intervention projects scattered across the State, not excluding the massive projects done inspite the economic meltdown.

Whereas, the past administration has a record of careless spending spree such that the former Finance Minister, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had wondered what Akpabio did with the huge monthly allocations it got with nothing to show for it.
