26 Jul 2011
The Akwa Ibom state government has pledged to complete the roads under construction in Abak Local Government area at the end of this year.
The state governor, His Excellency Chief Godswill Akpabio, gave the assurance at an award ceremony in his honour by the Anglican Diocese of Uyo. He announced that contracts for the construction of a bridge at Hospital Road, Abak, through to Idoro Road would soon be awarded.
Governor Akpabio who was honoured with the Joshua award at the diocese in recognition of his contribution to the development of the church appreciated the church for their prayers for his success in the last general election, He also advised Christians to show love and compassion for one another irrespective of tribe.
The service which marked the dedication and inauguration of Saint Peters Anglican church Abak in Abak Missionary Archdeaconry also witnessed the conferment of ITI EKA on the wife of the governor.
Earlier, the bishop, diocese of Uyo Anglican Communion, The Rt Rvd Isaac Orama who spoke on the unity of purpose and how to attain one’s destiny said the people should learn from Solomon in the holy scripture who was saddled with the great responsibility of building the house of God.
According to him, Governor Akpabio has tried to attain the destiny designed for him by God to be the governor; he called on all to support him to further develop the state rather than strive to distract the progress of the administration.
He reasoned that the more people struggle for positions of leadership, the more the devil will seek to destroy the destiny already designed for the state.
