“My soul magnifies the Lord .
I feel like offering this special prayer today, to thank God for Governor Udom Emmanuel, who has seen it necessary to carry on the dream I had for Akwa Ibom,” he noted.
“Several years ago, there was a time when it was believed that successive government must destroy everything the previous government had done but that is not so with Udom Emmanuel. I was accused of running the government as a business but Udom has confirmed today that the only way to run a government is not only as a business but as a successful business.
“We see in front of us here a business that’s supposed to reach it’s peak in 2021.
My prayer is that nothing will happen to abort that dream.
“This building here was conceived to take four aircrafts at the same time for maintenance, but before now, not only did the work stop, there was no attempt to bring such aircrafts for maintenance.
Today, we have a beginning of something that will bring economic growth and development.
“All I can say to Udom Emmanuel is thank you very sincerely.
I know that your next attention would be to complete the building for maintenance of our aircrafts” he added
