Don’t Be Deceived By Opposition … Onofiok Luke Tells Youths…Pledges to strengthen Cooperatives


The Speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Barr. Onofiok Luke has called on youths in the state to stand firm with the Udom Emmanuel-led administration and not be deceived by the antics of the opposition who do not have anything in store for them.
Barr. Luke who was making remarks in Eket during the reception by Eket senatorial district in honour of governor Udom, noted that it was necessary in the interest of peace to reign in the state that Eket senatorial district is allowed to enjoy their turn after Uyo and Ikot Ekpene senatorial districts had completed their turns.
The Speaker added that Eket which produces forty percent quarter of oil for Nigeria deserves a slot at the Hilltop mansion while also thanking youths of the state for different roles they played to support government to succeed since 1999 with Uyo and Ikot Ekpene senatorial districts taking eight years each in the governance of the state.
He assured citizens of the state of government commitment through placing premium on youth and women development as exemplified in the 2016 budget, an estimates which is presently before the House of Assembly for consideration, while pledging to make adequate provisions to cater for the overall well-being of citizens of the state.
The Speaker also gave assurances that the House of Assembly would strengthen cooperative societies to thrive as a basis to sustain and create employment.
