AKWA IBOM DAUGHTER SHATTERS 103 YEARS HISTORY, EMERGES CITY COUNCIL MEMBER IN USA

The Dakkada spirit now enveloping Akwa Ibom came alive yesterday, in the United States of America, as an Akwa Ibom daughter rose to make history. 


In elections held across various states in the US, an American of Akwa Ibom State descent, Ms. Ukeme Awakessien- Jeter broke a 103 record by becoming the first ever black elected City Council Member of a predominately  upper middle class city of Upper Arlington, Ohio. 


In a keenly contested election, Ms. Awakessien,  a partner in the law firm of Taft Stettiniius and Hollister LLP  Law Firm, and whose parents are from Ikot Obio Asangha, in Nsit Ibom Local Government was overwhelmingly elected. 


“I am running to bring fresh perspectives and innovative leadership to Upper Arlington City Council. 


"My varied experience makes me uniquely qualified to harness the power of broad civic engagements, leverage design thinking to birth novel ideas and utilize technology to inform our decision-making and provide innovative services”, she had stated as she made her campaign rounds, leading to her decisive victory yesterday.


Council Woman- Elect, Awakessien, is the older sister to the wife of the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Udom Emmanuel, Inyene Awakessien- Udoh.
