Vice President Osinbajo Set To Visit Akwa Ibom State On Today!

Vice President Osinbajo Set To Visit Akwa Ibom State On Today!
According to reports, Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is visiting Akwa Ibom today Thursday.

This is one visit that the people of Akwa Ibom have been anticipating for quite a while, the first from the nation's seat of power since the inception of the current administration.

Renowned as a very peaceful State, the people of Akwa Ibom have often avoided the temptation of violent confrontation in the face of lack of significant federal government attention to the state. This lack of federal presence is even worrisome, considering the role of the state as the highest contributor to the federal purse.

According to Sitippe.com, earlier last month, the presidency had explained that in line with the federal government's readiness to comprehensively address the Niger Delta situation, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, was visiting a number of oil communities across some Niger Delta States.

Acting President, Prof. Osinbajo has so far visited Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers States.

While in Akwa Ibom State, the Acting President is expected to lead a high-level delegation of the Federal Government that will interact with leaders and representatives of the oil-producing communities, elders, youths, women, and others.

Prof Osinbajo will see an effective inter-connectivity of more than 37roads measuring 1053km at various stages of completion, currently being executed by Governor Emmanuel. Notable among these are the ongoing second runway at the airport, ongoing dual carriage way from the airport to the coastal area of Oron, as well as a major dualized highway from Ibeno through Eket, Etinan all the way to Uyo the state capital.

In the area of Marine transportation, which “turns around the economy of the people in terms of engagement, capacity building and revenue,” Governor Emmanuel has obtained a license to build an international jetty in Ikot Abasi and is also on course for the activation of another smaller jetty in Oron. Through the strategic development, the Oron-Calabar, Oron-Cameron, Oron-Equitorial Guinea routes will be re-opened for vehicular and vessel movement.

In 2015 he appointed a technical committee for the realization of the Ibom Deep Seaport and Industrial City which is going to be one of the biggest industrial cities anywhere in Africa.

Several industries with questionable privatization status downgraded and should be on the eye of the Federal government are the Aluminium Smelter Company at Ikot Abasi, the Nigeria Newsprint Manufacturing Company at Oku Iboku among others.
