… Make Case For Ibom Air Flight To Cameroon
As Pastor Umo Eno takes over the administration of Akwa Ibom as governor today, Nigerians in Cameroon have appealed to him to make the Ibom Air Flight to Cameroon (Uyo – Douala Corridor), a stable reality.
The people made the appeal in a message of congratulations and solidarity to the new governor.
Under the aegis of Coalition of Nigerians in Cameroon, they stressed that making the Uyo-Douala Corridor a reality, would strengthen and boost a robust socio-economic relationship between them.
“We, Nigerians in Cameroon are happy to identify with Akwa Ibom government, because we have seen a vision that will ease our movement, boost our trades and give us a sense of belonging as a people.
“The immediate past administration of Gov Udom Emmanuel had promised us that the Ibom Aircrafts will commence flight operations to Douala in Cameroon but we understand the inherent logistics that could not guarantee the fulfillment of such promise.
“That is why we appeal to Your Excellency, to hit the ground running, by bringing to reality the regular international flights between Akwa Ibom and Cameroon,” they said.
The message was signed by Mr Peter Edet, President; Chief Emeka Ajuonuma,
Vice President; Amb. Charles Eyo,
Secretary; Alhaji Idris Haruna, Treasurer; Prince Otobong Ituen,
Financial Secretary; Akparawa Anietie Akpata,
Akparawa Iniobong Asuquo and Mr Sylvanus Nyong,
Welfare Officer I and II respectively; Bishop Johnny Anietie,
Director of Operations/Logistics;
Mr Raphael Etim Okon and Mr Bolaji Ogunyemi,
Ex-Officio I and II respectively.
The people, on behalf of the Executives and Members of Coalition rejoiced with Eno, on his swearing-in as the Executive Governor of the State.
“Your Excellency, your landslide victory at the March 25th, 2023 polls is the manifestation of the confidence that Akwa Ibom people have in you as somebody who has outstandingly followed the development of the State since its creation.
“The Golden Boy,” may your swearing-in today, as the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State with your able Deputy Governor, Sen. Akon Eyakenyi, bring unprecedented development to the nooks and crannies of the State.
“As a seasoned technocrat and an administrator, an entrepreneur of no mean repute, visionary and pragmatic personality, a goal-getter and a Clergy, who have been tested and trusted, we have no doubt that you shall bring your wealth of experience to-re-enact and consolidate on good governance in all its departments in the State. With you, Your Excellency, Akwa Ibom State is in for a new deal,” the message read in part.
They pledge their loyalty and support to the governor, even as they prayed that the Almighty grant him the wisdom of Solomon to steer the ship of the State.
