The Motion for the naming was moved by the House Leader and Councilor representing Offot 2, Ward 8, Hon. Akan John Eyo and Hon. Stella Ndarake Okon, Councilor representing Uyo Ward 1, who both submitted that the State Governor was deserving of the honour, adding that the State Leader’s administration so far has been worthwhile.
The Local Government Chairman, Dr. Uwemedimo Udo had earlier requested the Legislature to endorse the decision of the Council to name the new Administrative Block after Governor Emmanuel.
In a letter sent to the Legislature, Dr. Udo noted that the naming was in recognition of the huge support and cooperation received from Governor Udom Emmanuel and his love for the people of Uyo, evidenced in people-oriented projects and appointments “of many of our illustrious indigenes into various offices in the Government of Akwa Ibom State”.
At the Plenary, the House also passed a vote of absolute confidence on Dr Uwemedimo Udo, on account of running an all-inclusive administration and achievements recorded in 100 days.
“The projects have been done with diligence and the little resources available”, sponsor of the Motion, Hon. Akan John Eyo said.
The Motion is cosponsored by Hon. Mmeyene Michael Okon and signed by 13 members of the Council.
Similarly, the Council received a petition from the Tipper Contractors Development Association (TCDA) against people who go about, duping unsuspecting members of the public, while acting as members of the Association.
Following a careful assessment of the petition, Speaker of the House, Hon. Ubong Effiong noted that if handled with care, the petition would bring development to the Council. He therefore directed the Committee on Public Petitions to investigate the petition and report back to the House at the next meeting.
The Plenary was adjourned till 6th May, 2021.
