In a bid to provide a conducive working environment for the 11 Wards of the PDP in Ini LGA, the Honourable Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Glory Edet, Friday, inspected newly-acquired ward offices in Ukwok Ward 9 and 10.
Two brief events which took place at the ward headquarters, were witnessed by royal fathers, party stakeholders, women, youths and elder statesmen drawn from across Odoro Ukwok and Usuk Ukwok (Wards 9 and 10. )
In her respective opening remarks, the Honourable Commissioner charged the attendees on the need to be steadfast in their support for Governor Udom Emmanuel and noted that the Governor has done well for the people of Ini in particular and Akwa Ibom State at large. She appreciated the Party Executive members, stakeholders and the entire people of the two wards for maintaining peace and promoting unity in the area.
While briefing party faithfuls of the need for a befitting office in the 11 wards of Ini LGA, she said, “having a Ward office is as important as having an identity as a party. Governor Udom Emmanuel has done well . As a Commissioner on the platform of the PDP, it will be unfair to overlook the plight of Ward Chairmen and Party Executives in the area as it pertains to their working conditions. I have provided by God’s grace an office at the Chapter level for years now, Ikpe Ward 2, Itu Mbonuso Ward 3, and have also financially mobilized all the Ward Chairmen in Ini LGA to set up offices in their different Wards”.
On the need to embrace unity, the agric boss while redeeming her pledge to the women of Ukwok ward 10 on the occasion of a community development project fund raiser, encouraged them to be good examples to their children and advised them to shun violence and acts of disunity, noting that development cannot thrive where there is violence.
Dr. Edet used the opportunity to advise stakeholders on the need to take agriculture as a business and make good use of the planting season that beckons. She distributed maize, okra, and onion seeds to farmers and stakeholders of the two wards.
In their separate responses, the Ini PDP Chapter Chairman, Honourable Emmanuel Uma, Mr. Moses Ime Akpan,Chairman, Ukwok Ward 10, Mr. Ezekiel Ema Usang, Chairman, Ward 9, Honourable Moses Udo Solomon, Councilor, Ward 9, Honourable Saviour Ben, State Officer and Honourable Effiong Udofia, Elder of the party, all appreciated Governor Udom for all he has done for the people of Ini LGA. They also appreciated Dr. Edet for championing the provision of ward offices across the 11 wards in Ini LGA.
The brief but colourful event also featured presentation of wrappers and other items to widows, youths, women, Party Executives and elders of Ukwok Ward 9 and 10.
