Governor Godswill Akpabio, CON had on April 1st sent the names of two (2) nominees for confirmation as Commissioner and Special Adviser to the State House of Assembly.
This was contained in a letter signed by the State Chief Executive and was read at the floor of the House by the Acting Clerk.
The Governor requested the House to confirm the nomination of the following;
1. Hon. Uwem Ita Etuk – Commissioner; and
2. Mr. Asuquo Ekpenyong Eyinna, from Mkpanak, Ibeno LGA – Special Adviser
It will be recalled that during the town hall meeting in Eket, the Paramount Ruler of Ibeno made a strong case of Ibeno LGA not being represented in the state EXCO which propelled the governor to direct the Paramount Ruler and the State House of Assembly man from the area to come up with a name to fill in the position.
The Governor used the medium in soliciting for the Legislator’s continued unalloyed cooperation with the Executive arm.
