AKWA IBOM STATE GOVERNMENT SHOULD TAKE EKET ROADS SERIOUSLY.
We have as a youth organization operating in Eket and Esit Eket local governments of Akwa Ibom state for all Ekid speaking people, noticed the cruel abandonment of internal roads in Eket local government by the state government under Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel.
It is only but a sad sight to behold that a once glorious land with a seriously teeming population of residents, has been left in the shackles of careless and slow developmental pace by the state government, thereby allowing the people to the fate of managing life when the government they voted can actually make it better for them.
Just a few months ago the Eket local government chairman started and completed some intervention works on seriously bad roads in Eket which could only last usage for just the few months it did. As we speak intelligence and our eye witnesses have reported the poor and gradually deplorable state of the Idua By All weather road that was part of the intervention and many other roads. This simply means there was no standard and sustainable construction of those roads.
The union reminds the government of her duties of Catering and protecting the wellbeing of her people and demand that the deplorable state of major and internal roads in Eket be given quick attention as soon as possible..Roads have remained bad in Eket for years. We don’t want to count the Atabong road that has remained a practical lab for more than 4 years, hospital road, Liverpool road and many other internal roads.
Eket is both a major local government and an oil host community, the allocations, the royalties, the derivative funds, the generated revenue (this we shall talk about soon) are all enough to drive the needed changes in this area.
