Late Senator Etang Edet Umoyo has been described by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Frank Archibong, as a leader whose big  heart, sharp mind, and boundless energy were gifts he gave to Akwa Ibom State. 

This was contained in a condolence message signed  by the Commissioner, on behalf of his family and the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs. He noted that the life of  the late former Senator of the federal republic of Nigeria had touched many within and outside  Ekid nation. He said "His big heart, sharp mind, and boundless energy were gifts he gave to Akwa Ibom State while serving in various capacities". 

Mr. Archibong, eulogized the departed Cicero, as a thorough bred professional and democrat of high repute. "It is on record that he was a socio-political philosopher who consistently strived for equity, fairness and justice in his contributions to the growth and sustenance of democracy in Akwa Ibom State, and Nigeria at large".

He maintained that the late Senator Umoyo, was a visibie and committed Ekid Community leader who contributed immensely to the development of Ekid nation and the State at large. 

"For instance, until his demise, he was the chairman of Akwa Palm Reactivation in Esit Eket LGA, a project he put in all his best to ensure its reality. He has no doubt left a great void and hole in our hearts as a people and, as  we all know; Akwa Ibom State has lost a multi-faceted and well-rounded man" Frank Archibong stated.

The Commissioner who regretted the demise of the elderstatesman, stressed that Akwa Ibom State has lost a truly remarkable gentleman who had always put himself at the service of his community.
