The Commissioner for Lands and Town Planning, Dr. Bassey Antai has continued to receive messages of congratulation on his re-appointment into the State Executive Council. The latest is from the Udung Uko Union.
In a letter signed by the Secretary of Udung Uko Union, Elder Eric Esu the entire Udung Uko people expressed the hope that Dr. Antai, a former President of Oro Union Lagos Branch, and the current Chairman AKPF Lagos branch, will bring his humane, humble disposition and immense wealth of experience to bear on the present digital administration.

They include the head of civil service, Elder Mrs. Grace Anwana, Commissioner for Rural Development, Pastor Onyong Asuquo and the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Ekpenyong Ntekim.
In the same vein, another socio political group. Oro Nation Forum, in a congratulatory letter to Dr. Bassey Antai said they were grateful to the State Governor for accommodating Oro Nation in his administration and said they solidly behind him in his effort to recover the 76 oil wells that were erroneously taken away from Akwa Ibom State.
The letter which was jointly signed by the President of the Forum, chief Sylvester Akaiso, the Secretary, Mr. Raymond Etim and a former PDP Deputy Chairman in Oro Local Government Area, Mr. Julius Ekpenyong described Governor Akpabio as a dynamic digital and multi award wining Governor whose administration is satisfactory considering the development strides recorded in the state.
The letter also stated that the Governor’s second term bid was not negotiable as Governor Akpabio within two years in office has performed creditably and proved himself a capable state administrator who should be allowed to continue beyond 2011.
The people who pledged their unalloyed loyalty and support to Governor Akpabio, added that their Forum has completed plans for a two million people match in early September, 2009 that will end with a massive Solidarity Rally in Oro Township Stadium to draw up more support for the Governor’s second term bid.
