Official Website Of The Governor Of Akwa Ibom State
On behalf of the government and the good people of Akwa Ibom State, i felicitate with you, on the occasion of your 80th Birthday.
Your Excellency, i feel honoured to sit daily on the same seat you once sat; working tirelessly to ensure the foundation you laid for a New Akwa Ibom State, where peace, security, economic growth, a new mental and attitudinal re-engineering predicated on the ''dakadda'' philosophy are abiding articles of faith and engagements.
Your Excellency, we thank you immensely and owe you our eternal debt of gratitude for your resolute and unwavering commitment to equity, justice and the appropriation of God's own rich endowments for the advancement and development of our state and our people.
As you turn 80 today, my prayer is that the good lord should grant you robust health so you will continue yo inspire us to do good to all and in the words of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States bear "malice towards none, with charity for all."
May the peace, unity, progress, development, a kindred spirit which you have been preaching continue to define us as a people and help neuter the resort to tendencies that are alien to our collective identity.
Once again, Happy Birthday Your Excellency!
