Special Assistant to Akwa Ibom State Governor on Grassroots Mobilisation in Abuja (North), Honourable Emmanuel Inyang has said that the recent directive by the Minister of federal capital territory, FCT, Alhaji Mohammed Bello to partner indigenes of the state within the FCT to export vegetables (Ugu leaf) to European countries will help to boost the economy of the country.
It could be recalled that the FCT Minister gave the directive recently when a delegation from Akwa Ibom State Liaison Office, Abuja led by Hon. Inyang paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
He also noted that the partnership will further create job opportunities to our teeming unemployed youths as well as empower our women in the FCT.
According to him, the partnership will help to “empower our youths, women as well as create a cordial relationship between the people of Akwa Ibom residing in FCT and the FCT administration.
“We strongly belief that with the intervention of the FCT Minister, which he has already given a directive to the Abuja Enterprise Agency to meet with me, so we can see how to partner and encourage women who engage in the cultivation of fluted pumpkin (Ugu leafs), the economy would be stimulated.
Speaking further, he stated that the Minister expressed hope of exporting the vegetables to London, France, and many European Counties around the world on a daily bases.
Hon Inyang also revealed that the Minister was very much disturbed that countries like Ghana are the ones exporting ‘Ugu’ leafs to the European countries when Nigerian women especially Akwa Ibom women can as well do same.
Similarly, he disclosed that the Minister has also given a go ahead to set up a craft centre where both youths from Akwa Ibom state and non- Akwa Ibom indigenes will be trained in skilled work such as carpentry, tailoring and so on, instead of staying idle while waiting for white collar jobs.
While describing the Minister as a good father who does not segregate base on ethnicity or Religion, Inyang said that he has already been directed to put up everything he needs, to facilitate the take-of of the partnership to ensure that Akwa Ibom citizens residing in Abuja are not left out in this government.

    Dear misinformed Group, NDIMRC, truly The Church does not need Daddy Adeboye to tell them who to vote for in the coming election, the Scripture (The Bible, which is The Word of God) is there to lead and instruct them (Ps 119:105,11) I do not want to get into a sermon here, but need I remind you all that God The Almighty, used his children under “Unchristian Leaders” to accomplish mighty things in the past…..For example Joseph under Pharaoh in Egypt (Gen 41:38-42), Daniel with Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon (Daniel 4:1-17), Daniel with Darius (Daniel 6:1-3) , also Esther and Modercai with Ahasuerus in Babylon are living examples (Esther 9:1-14)…

    Show me a christian presidential candidate in PDP, with “INTEGRITY” and “HONESTY” and I’ll vote for him, I am not talking of a man that has a name in the Bible whose fruits are continually evil, afterall Lucifer is a Biblical name will you vote for such?? If your candidate has done well, will he not be accepted, and if he did not do well, sin lieth at the door (Gen 4:7)???? by their fruits we shall know them, we have known him!; NO MORE DECEIT! Please do advice your unbelieving candidate that he should just genuinely repent because the blood of the wasted are crying for vengeance…..the Chibok Girls whose destinies have been vandalised due to his incompetence, neglect and gross ineptitude are continually petitioning God for vengeance and judgment…..May The Good LORD, The God of Recompense, The Man of War answer them speedily in Jesus Name, AMEN!

    One more thing, could you please advice your “Judas Iscariot” candidate to stop visiting all churches to kneel down for prayers, …Be not deceived, God is not mocked whatsoever a man soweth, the same shall he reap, May your Oga Jona reap the work of his hands soonest in Jesus Name AMEN….

    If he does not stop running to churches all over the place, he will end like his ancestral father King Saul in the Shrine very soon, that is if he has not gone there already….

    How can a man that never listens to Pastors’ advice now want The Church to vote him in election time, will that not amount to an unrighteous act by the Brethren, or should the Brethren commit deliberate sin to cast their votes for an ungodly, unrepentant and deceitful man??? What if death come calling on any of them after election, should a wise Brethren open his eyes, vote for your unbelieving man and submit hid soul in hell because of your bad leader (James 4:17; Rom 1:28-32)

    Finally here is an advice for your “Oga at the top”, please get him a Bible to study and meditate on Prov29:1. “He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be…….” Q.E.D.!!!
