“For us in Akwa Ibom State, we have sincerely been willing partners in the uncommon transformation efforts of the present state government, and this fact has over time been openly acknowledged and appreciated by our benevolent workers’ friendly governor, Chief Godswill Obot Akpabio (CON).”
She appreciated God thus: “I return all glory and honour to God Almighty for His sustaining grace that has seen us all through to this day to be part of this auspicious event.”
