Governor Udom Emmanuel has been on a development-spree in Ikot Ekpene senatorial district as never before, silencing naysayers and critics of his government.
These remarkable Midas touches of the Governor in Ikot Ekpene zone got the raffia empire on toes to package and present the following as testaments to Governor Udom’s developmental strides.
Notable, the positively affected areas are places which had been neglected for years prior to the advent of the present administration.
Behold the new and laudable developmental strides of Governor Udom Emmanuel in Oruk Anam, Ini and Ikono Local Government Areas (LGA):
✅ Norfin Offshore Ship building Coy in Oruk Anam LGA
✅ 14.1 km road with 2 Bridges in Ini LGA

✅18.95km road in Oruk Anam LGA
Norfin Offshore Ship building company, the first of its kind in the State, is located by the bridge at Ikot Ukpong, Oruk Anam along Port Harcourt/Akwa Ibom East-West Road. So far, the company has officially inaugurated its own designed and constructed Dredger, Norfin Power 1, and is expected to generate job opportunities, create wealth and alleviate poverty in the area.
The 14.1km road with 2 bridges in Ini LGA, spans from Odoro Ikpe community through Ikpe Ikot Nkon-Nkana and Obotme, terminating at Arochukwu in Abia state; while the 15.13km road in Ika LGA traverses Ikot Otomo-Obio Ebenwang-Ikot Akpa Ofiong-Ikot Otong-Ikot Urom-Nto Udo Ewang by Cossels construction company.
In Oruk Anam LGA, the 18.95km road network links Ikot Ibritam-Inen-Ekeffe and Ikot Akpan Afaha with a bridge by Almajdal. So many other roads in the communities are being graded to make them passable for ease of transportation by the rural dwellers.
All these projects are part of Governor Udom Emmanuel’s commitment towards the betterment of the lots of the people in rural communities especially with “Rural and Riverine Development”, being a major plan of the Governor’s second term completion agenda.
The Raffia zone train joins the teeming people of Akwa Ibom State and in particular, Ikot Ekpene senatorial district as well as all stakeholders of Project Akwa Ibom to express our deep gratitude to Governor Udom Emmanuel on his development strides in the area and pray the good Lord to grant the People-oriented Governor grace and good health as he steers on the development ship of Akwa Ibom State to enviable heights.
