Emmanuel commends state, National Assemblies for support, co-operation
Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel has commended the state House of Assembly as well as the Ninth National Assembly members for the exceptional co-operation that existed between the two arms of government in the past one year. He gave the commendation as the lawmakers prepare to celebrate their one year in office after the 2019 general elections.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Ekerete Udoh, the governor said: “In the past one year, as was in our first term, you have been keen partners in the execution of the mandate bestowed on us by our people to work for their collective interest and general well-being. This has resulted in the harmonious working relationship we have enjoyed in the last one year. We have achieved this while respecting the principles enshrined in the concept of the separation of power.
“As you get set to continue your service to our people in your second year, I urge you to remain committed to the ideals for which our people overwhelmingly elected us to serve them. I look forward to deepening our co-operation in the coming years as we work to leave legacies that would stand the test of time. Congratulations to you all.”

I have enjoyed a robust working and deep personal relationships with you all, and I know I can count on your continuous co-operation and spirit of oneness as we work to improve the living standards of our people and prove to everyone that government can indeed be a force for good.”
