Governor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom has said that the Bill for the establishment of the State Bulk Purchasing Agency, which is currently in the House of Assembly, is meant to ensure that the price of staple food items are within the reach of the people.

Eno who commended the state Assembly for their committment towards the speedy passage of the Bill told newsmen in Uyo yesterday that he would also ensure that the process is transparent.

“We will buy the food items in bulk and ensure that they are made available to our people at relatively lower prices.The process will be transparent.

“I want to thank the House of Assembly for the expeditious manner this Bill is being treated. I want to assure our people that we feel their pain and are working hard to ensure that food security for our people is guaranteed.

“That’s why they voted for me overwhelmingly and as you know, I came from this stock and I feel their pain completely.

“I appeal to our people to exercise patience while the House of Assembly is working to pass the Bill, which would be immediately signed into law by me.” The Governor stated.
