Port Harcourt — Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has sought the support of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the development of Ibom deep seaport in the state.
According to the Governor, the Ibom deep seaport project was one of the most important issue he tabled before President Bola Tinubu during his last meeting with him in Abuja, assuring of his resolve to work with the new President irrespective of differences in political inclination.
Governor Eno said he was on a mission to build political and economic bridges with relevant quarters in the interest of the economic growth and development of Akwa Ibom State, saying that President Tinubu being the current father of the entire nation with Akwa Ibom as an integral part of the nation, it behoves on him to express his loyalty.
He said: “We talked about the Ibom deep seaport, we talked about a Free Zone license and the Federal Government to help with the MRO.
“We talked about the Calabar-Itu Road and Mr President promised he will help and was happy that we came, and I’m glad that he granted that opportunity for us to have free access to him.
“We must build bridges, we must form partnerships across party lines to deliver the dividends of democracy. That’s exactly why we visited him.”
The governor further said he would partner with elected representatives of the state at the National Assembly irrespective of political party lines for the growth and development of the state.
“Elections are over. Political parties are platforms to contest. When you contest and God brings you through, you must understand that you have to reach out to people and work together.
“No one man has the monopoly of knowledge. By the grace of God, I am the governor of Akwa Ibom State and Akwa Ibom includes all of us, so leadership must show that ability to bend over, backwards and align,” the governor stated.
