Akpabio commissions projects
THE Akwa Ibom Governor, Chief Godswill Akpabio, has commissioned life-touching projects worth billions of naira with a clarion call on the people of the state to emulate selfless service of his administration.
The projects are Ibom Specialist Hospital at Ekritam in Itu Local Council, Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Ikot Ekpene and Ikot Ekpene Mini-Sports Stadium.
Also commissioned was the renovated Ikot Ekpene Sports Stadium, which can accommodate more than 5,000 spectators.
At the hospital premises, Governor Akpabio said: “We meet here today for the commissioning of this great adventure in healthcare at a defining moment in the history of our country. A time when Nigerians have lost faith in our healthcare system and our nation has lost vital revenue in medical tourism. But also a time when Nigerians have also got used to the idea expressed by an American Ambassador to Nigeria, Ambassador Terrence McCulley, “that the future of Nigeria is Akwa Ibom State.”
