Governor Emmanuel Swears-in New Commissioners

Udom Emmanuel


Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has sworn-in six new commissioners into his cabinet with a change on them to bring in tangible values to enable his administration land well and safely. 

Speaking shortly after administering oath of office to the new commissioners in Uyo on Friday, Governor Emmanuel said the six joined his team at a very critical moment when his administration is having much to deliver to Akwa Ibom people  
He charged his new team members to imitate Jesus disciples by putting the interest of Akwa Ibom people ahead of  personal interests.
“This is another call to duty. From your  CV,  it is obvious that you are combat ready. Give preference to Akwa Ibom people. do not place your personal interest above the interest  of the people.  You are coming at a time we have much to deliver. Bring your very best to make sure we land well and safely”. he charged.
Speaking on the need for political aspirants to remain peaceful during the  electioneering, Governor Emmanuel reasoned that any whose intention is to render service to the people would not approach such aspiration with violence. He therefore cautioned that no individual’s ambition is worth more than the peace of over 700million Akwa Ibom people. 
“Let us play politics with understanding and fear of God. Whoever is opting to serve would never do so  through violence, bloodshed and fetish oath. 
“We have total zero tolerance for violence. Trying to pull another man down does not qualify you. we can do it more cleaner and peaceful than ever before. Let us know that the ambition of one man is nothing compared to the peace of over 700 million Akwa Ibom people “. He cautioned
The six new Exco members sworn in and their LGAs include; Dr. Bassey B. Okon – Itu, Offiong S. Offoh – Ini, Enefiok Isaac – Ikot Ekpene,  Iniobong Ekong – Nsit Ubium,  Bob Emem – Onna and  Engr. Camillus Essien Umoh – Essien Udim
It would be recalled that Governor Emmanuel had recently relieved six members of his executive council  who have political ambition to enable them pursue their dreams.
The Governor had also forwarded a list of six nominees who were yesterday screened and cleared by the State House of Assembly.
