Gov. Udom Emmanuel

Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, has sheded light on the Akwa Ibom State Map Establishment Law 2023 recently passed by the State House of Assembly.

He said that the law seeks to lay to rest agitation, boundary disputes and communal conflicts rather than exclude any group through the state’s demarcation.

Governor Emmanuel was addressing the congregation at weekend during the Government House Monthly Prayer Meeting held at the Latter House Chapel, Governor’s Lodge Uyo.

He explained that the law which gives the state an avenue to produce an official map will promote peace and reduce boundary conflicts, noting that it should not raise any dust by any group or persons in the state as everything remains intact.

“A lot of people complain, criticize and abuse when it is absolutely unnecessary, I don’t think anybody in this state can tell me he has an official map of Akwa Ibom, we’ve never had one, this is the first time the House of Assembly held a public hearing and they are trying to put that in place. 

“The map does not exclude anybody, so why abuse the governor and the legislators. We are not excluding anybody. The map does not exclude anybody, rather it is trying to breed peace, it does not tamper with anything, it doesn’t tamper with our resources, it doesn’t change our location, it doesn’t change our sharing formulae, it doesn’t affect anything, we are just trying to officially gazette what we have”, he reasoned.

The Chief Executive commended the security agencies for strengthening the security apparatus in the state within the present administration and hinted that the International Christian Worship Center will be commissioned on 28th of May, 2023, before his valedictory thanksgiving service.

He listed other projects to be inaugurated before the end of his administration to include Terminal Building, MRO, and Taxi-way at the International Airport.

At the prayer meeting, Pastor Emmanuel Bassey who preached on the theme, “He is Alive”, culled from Rev: 1: 18 and Luke 24: 1-7, admonished Christians to have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ so as to experience a positive turn around  in their lives.
