    AKISCOM Urges Udom to sustain Uncommon Transformation in Akwa Ibom









     By Emmanuel Udom

    The people of Akwa Ibom State, residing in Lagos under the aegis of Akwa Ibom State Community (AKISCOM) have called on the Governor-elect for the state, Deacon Emmanuel Udom sustain the developmental strides already recorded in the state.

    AKISCOM President, Chief Elijah Ifot made the call during a meeting of Akwa Ibom indigenes in Lagos held at Surulere, south-west Nigeria.

    According to him, officials of the community who monitored the governorship election observed that contrary to media reports, the election was peaceful, free and fair where Udom won convincingly against his other opponents.

    He recalled that since 2011, the stand of AKISCOM, Lagos was for power to shift to Eket Senatorial District for equity and fair play though at the time they took this position, they did not have anybody in mind.

    His words: The wish and expectation of AKISCOM have come to pass with the election of Udom.

    “With this development, AKISCOM as a Body affirmed that the election in the State was peaceful and asked other contestants that are aggrieved on the outcome to sheath their sword and join hands with the governor-elect to develop the State” he said.

    Ifot explained that youth empowerment, functional education, universal health care, poverty alleviation, sustainable agricultural development, industrialization should be the focal points of the uncommon transformation in the state, which the Godswill Akpabio, the out-going governor concentrated upon.

    In her remarks, Mrs. Mfon Ibanga, Chairlady of the community Ojo Local Government Area, speaking on behalf of other chairmen and charladies in Lagos implored the incoming leadership in Akwa Ibom not to disappoint the expectation of the people of the State and those in the Diaspora.

    While noting the contribution of AKISCOM, Lagos to the emergence of Mr. Emmanuel Udom as the new governor of the State, she advised AKISCOM leadership to make their impact felt by the incoming administration through constructive engagement with them.
