Lagos - Some grassroots legislators in the Akwa Ibom State have thrown their weight behind Governor Udom Emmanuel as he actualises his vision for the state.

“We feel satisfied and proud of the proactiveness of His Excellency, Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel in his positive giant strides thus far in the governance of Akwa Ibom state which has found expression in his initial setting up a tact team of experienced technocrat and stakeholders for the all-important Ibom Deep Seaport project at Ibaka,” the councillors stated following the meeting in Uyo.

“The conference who recounted the achievements recorded during the immediate past administration in the State, congratulated ex-governor Godswill Akpabio on his successful assumption of office as Senator for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District in the National Assembly, and wished him well in the red chambers,” the councillors stated.

Meanwhile, while commending Senator Bassey Albert of Uyo Senatorial District, the new Speaker, Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Aniekan Uko and the Secretary to the State government, Sir Etekamba Umoren, expressed optimism in the legislature functioning effectively.
