Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom have called on all indigenes and residents of Akwa Ibom to support the actualization of the  recently approved Ibom Deep Seaport and the proposed $1.4 Billion  Fertilizer and Ammonia  Plant as they have the potentials to  change the economic status of the state.

Emmanuel who made this known in an Easter message to the people of the state on Sunday maintained that with the recent approval and take off of the Federal Government approved Oil and Gas Free Zone and the ongoing construction of the Sterling Petrochemical Plant at Eastern Obollo, the state would change status from a civil service to an industrialized one.

The Governor who commended President Muhammadu Buhari for approving of those industrial projects in the state further stated that construction work on the Ibom Deep Seaport would commence very soon.

“In the recent past, we have been blessed with life-changing projects such as Sterling Petrochemical Plant in Eastern Obolo, where construction is in an advanced stage.

“A little over two months ago, the Federal Executive Council, (FEC) approved the license for us to commence the construction of our long desired Ibom Deep Seaport. Work would soon commence on this gigantic project. These are huge achievements for our State and our people. “Ibom Deep Seaport will open up our economic fortunes; create employment and wealth opportunities for our people and throw open our State as a major maritime hub in our Nation.

“We thank the President and the Commander in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) for this kind approval.” He said.

Emmanuel stated that the Fertilizer and Ammonia Plant should be supported by all indigenes and residents irrespective of political affiliation because of it’s capacity to change the economic fortunes of the state. “About three weeks ago, we were also blessed by the Invisible Hands of God to have signed a 1.4 billion dollar Fertilizer and Ammonia plant with our Moroccan counterparts. 

“The plant will again create huge employment and other supply chain activities for our people, which will transform us from a civil service oriented State to a fast industrializing one. 
“These are huge achievements that should gladden the hearts of every Akwaibomite irrespective of political affiliations.” The Governor said. 
He reminded the people of the  state that the essence of Easter would be lost if the resurrection of Christ is not allowed to illuminate their souls through love and sacrifice to one another.

“Let the fishermen in the ocean fronts of Mbo, Okobo, Eastern Obolo and Ibeno love one another. Let the farmers in the rice plantations at Ini, Ikono, Ika, ONNA and Nsit Ibom love one another.

“Let the civil servants and public servants, politicians in all political parties, members of all denominations, preachers of all faiths, love one another.

“When we let love drive our every action and every thought, when we let it drip from our lips and from our hands, then shall the joy of Easter be complete, and our State shall surely attain  the lofty height set for it by our ancestors when they named it Akwa Abasi Ibom State.” The Governor concluded.
