…as Governor’s Aide inspects new building project

The Executive Chairman of Uyo Local Government Council, Dr. Uwemedimo Udoh today played host to the Special Assistant to the Governor on Research and Documentation, Elder Ndanti Ekuh who paid an official visit to the Council Boss in his office.

The Governor’s Aide was received by the Council Chairman, Dr. Udoh and the Council Secretary, Mr. Ubong Udofia.

The visit marked Elder Ekuh’s first official visit to the Chairman since his assumption of Office in December last year.

Welcoming the Governor’s Aide, the Uyo Council Boss thanked him for the visit, describing it as a solidarity visit aimed at encouraging, motivating and identifying with the Service Alone team of the Uyo Local Government Council.

While extolling Ekuh’s diligence in discharging his assignment as Research and Documentation Aide to Governor Udom Emmanuel, Dr. Udo thanked the Governor for giving Uyo people the opportunity to serve in his government and also commended Elder Ekuh for his patriotism and love for Uyo.

Taking the Governor’s Aide on a tour of the office complex building project executed by his administration in just few days after resuming office as the Council Chairman, Dr.

Udo said he is working round the clock to ensure that the building is commissioned in his first hundred days in office.

Speaking on the project, Ekuh said he was overwhelmed by the progress of work in the building project in less than 60 days, noting that it is simply a product of service alone given to Uyo Local Government by Dr. Udoh led administration.

He described the Project as a scorecard of a noiseless and selfless Council Chairman with sound leadership prowess who follows the footprint of Governor Udom Emmanuel in infrastructural development.

According to him, it is shocking that a Chairman could used less than 60 days to finish up a building project he picked up at less than 10% and therefore scored Dr. Udoh high for his achievements in less than hundreds of his administration.

While calling on other Chairmen across the State to borrow a leave from Uyo Council Chairman, Ekuh said the generality of Uyo people are happy that Uwemedimo Udoh has restored the dignity of Uyo Local Government as a model local government in the state in terms of service delivery and people-oriented leadership.

He also urged the Chairman to keep up the good work and ensure that Uyo remains the leading local  government in the Completion Agenda of the State Governor.

Also in the Council were the Vice Chairman, Evang. Sylvia Ekong, the Leader of Uyo Legislative Council, Hon. Ubong Effiong and other Councilors including Hon. Mmenyene Akpan, Hon. Stella Udo and Hon. Praise Otuekong.
