Gov Udom Emmanuel 

Encomiums have continued to pour in for Governor Udom Emmanuel's human capacity development drive. The latest in the series of commendations came in, Monday afternoon from the Honourable Commissioner for Culture and tourism in Akwa Ibom State, Rt. Hon. Orman Esin.

The Commissioner who made the commendation while speaking at the certification ceremony organized to mark the end of the two weeks Dakkada Digital Skills Training, held at Ibom YIELD incubation hub, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, said Governor Emmanuel's legacy in human capacity development was clear for even the blind to see. Esin thanked the Governor for what he described as an unparalleled love for entrepreneurs in the state.

Speaking further, Esin, who was Special Guest at the event, also  commended   beneficiaries of the training for their interest in self development and always making themselves available for impactful knowledge.  He charged them to ensure that the knowledge acquired during the programme is put to practice in their different fields of  endeavours for their personal benefits and that of the society at large.

The Honourable Commissioner further noted that over the years, the creative community in the country have developed an apathy for electoral processes but often  turned around to complain about incompetent leadership after the elections. The culture and tourism commissioner wondered why the "intelligent and exposed" left a task as serious as leadership selection in the hands of a few persons. Esin urged the entrepreneurs in Akwa Ibom State to not just be involved in the 2023 elections but to also rally around one of their own, a practicing entrepreneur and gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pastor Umo Eno, to ensure the sustainability of programmes such as the Dakkada Digital Skills Training.

Also speaking at the event, the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel on Marketing and Brand Management, Mr Ime Uwah  commended the beneficiaries for their maturity and positive conduct and responses during the training. 

According to Uwah, the emergence of Governor Udom Emmanuel as a Governor of Akwa Ibom State is a blessing that has transformed the once dependent youths of the State to masters and independent Entrepreneurs.

He thanked Governor Emmanuel for his effort in human capital development, noting that  beneficiaries of the numerous human capacity development programmes of the Udom Emmanuel administration have the responsibility of ensuring that the vision is sustained by supporting  an enterprise driven leader as a Governor in Akwa Ibom State in the upcoming coming 2023 general Elections.

In a welcome remark, the Special Assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel on Entrepreneurial Development, Mrs. Meflyn Anwana explained that the Dakkada digital Skill training is a clear prove of Governor Emmanuel's pragmatic zeal on driving human capital development across different aspects of industries in his administration.

According to Anwana, the Governor's interest which is beyond mere  support for the digital training skill  has more other significant targeted economic returns which the State through such training must explore in other to  proffer digital solutions to challenges in the entrepreneurial ecosystem,  thereby providing job opportunities to Akwa Ibom people.

Goodwill messages were received at the event from representatives of the commissioners for education and information in the state, Group Head, Marketing and Communications, Ibom Air - Mrs Annie Essienette, CEO of Mileni Creations, Mrs Mae Edmund Uffang, Faculty members as well as development partners.
