I will fulfill my promises to Akwa Ibom people
Governor Udom Emmanuel has assured that he will fulfill his campaign promises to Akwa Ibom people before the expiration of his tenure. He made this declaration during the inauguration of roads in Oron local government area. The Governor had at the advent of his administration, visited the local government area and promised to construct roads that will aid the socio-economic life of the people. Having earlier delivered six high impact roads, he visited the local government area today to inaugurate Oron road, customs road, market square road and Murtala road, with outfall drains spanning 2 Kilometers.
