“Governor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom State has vowed to work twice as hard to secure a promising future filled with growth and development for the citizens. Eno, who made this pledge during a speech delivered to commemorate his first 100 days in office, recalled his initial promise to focus on rural development while also expanding and strengthening urban renewal and other key areas.
He emphasized that his administration is working tirelessly to translate the core principles of the A.R.I.S.E Agenda into practical actions. Eno stated, ‘While you elected me for the first four years, with the expectation of earning your trust for an ongoing journey towards our shared prosperity, the tradition of celebrating 100 days in office is observed worldwide in the democratic context.
“Today, my fellow Akwaibomites, 100 days later, I can confidently say that we have hit the ground running, and with God as our constant guide, we are diligently transforming our vision into tangible, measurable, and impactful initiatives.
“We have established an agency, the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP), dedicated to advancing rural development, enhancing the quality of life for our rural residents, stimulating economic activities, and curbing rural-to-urban migration.
We have already initiated critical road projects across all three senatorial districts, and the first of these projects, the internal roads in Urua Akpan Andem, is set to be commissioned today, delivered on schedule by HENSEK Integrated Services.
“To kick start our agricultural revolution in alignment with the A.R.I.S.E Agenda, we have acquired over 50 thousand hectares of land in all 31 LGAs, with the aim of ensuring food security and involving our people in agro-allied enterprises.
“As a tangible demonstration of this commitment, we recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the renowned Songhai Farms to establish a model farm in our state. We have also provided training to hundreds of our citizens to become the core of skilled workers driving this initiative.”
The governor reiterated that his administration has consistently disbursed gratuities to local government workers, primary school teachers, and state employees, with a total of 3 billion Naira released for this purpose. Additionally, the construction of model primary schools and primary healthcare facilities in all three senatorial districts is progressing rapidly.
“We have demonstrated a commitment to bipartisanship by collaborating across party lines for the advancement of our state, as exemplified by the successful Ibom dialogue and other significant events. Recognizing the importance of maintaining our state’s peaceful reputation, we have established a new ministry, the Ministry of Internal Security, led by retired Nigerian Army Brigadier General Koko Essien.
“As we commemorate our first 100 days in office, I reaffirm my dedication to working twice as hard to secure a brighter future filled with growth and development for you all. Together, let’s make this vision a reality,” Governor Eno declared.”
