The popular Ibom Plaza was yesterday thrown into some sort of frenzy atmosphere as traders and those doing business there were taken off their feet over the unplanned visit of the State Information and Strategy Commissioner, Mr. Charles Udoh.
A clear difference from the recent visit to market points by UCCDA officials who only went to inflict pain and anguish on traders, the Commissioner, this time took the message of hope and assurance to the traders and also to interact directly with them.
Udoh expressed concerns over the welfare of traders who were into one trade or the other and further reiterated the commitment of the Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel in creating a more conducive and enabling environment for business to thrive in line with his Dakkada philosophy.
He used the visit to thank the leadership of Plaza community for being up and doing and for always maintaining peace and orderliness within the Plaza community while also thanking them for their unwavering support to the administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel.
The Commissioner informed them that the governor is passionate and concern over their well being and state of the welfare of everyone and as such the power challenge at the Plaza and the Ibom Plaza Plasma Screen will be restored speedily so that the economic activities will be enhanced.
Joining the teeming jubilant crowd to welcome the Information Boss to the nerve centre of the city was the Vice Chairman designate of Uyo LGA, Ambassador (Ukai) Udeme Edem who also doubles as the Vice Chairman of the Ibom plaza community; Mr Ambrose, Ibom Plaza Community President and Akparawa Engr. Charles Ekah (the Street governor).
Goodwill massages were presented by some of the traders while some told the Commissioner their challenges where he pledged to look into them.
