A’Ibom Gov. Announces Plan To Celebrate 60th Birthday With Orphanage, Vulnerables

Akwa Ibom state Governor Pastor Umo Bassey Eno, has demanded those who wish to celebrate his 60th birthday with him to visit orphanages, and homes of the vulnerable with food items or any other items that may have been meant for him.

He said this single act would make their lives more meaningful.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Ekerete Udoh made this known in a Facebook post on April 17, 2024.

He said on April 24, 2024, His Excellency, Pastor Umo Eno, Governor, Akwa Ibom State will turn 60 years old.

Therefore, In appreciation to God for His Grace and benevolence, he has asked that no elaborate birthday celebrations be done to mark the day.

Rather, he has demanded that all those who may wish to celebrate this milestone with advertorials in newspapers, television scrolls and gifts, convert such to what the vulnerable population needs the most at this time:

Meanwhile, in line with his life-long attachment and identification with the vulnerable and the downtrodden, he identified food and medical supplies as the basic needs.

Also, with a gut feeling of having made a good decision he said thus:

“The best birthday gift you may give me would be a visit to orphanages, and homes of the vulnerable with food items or any other items that may make their lives more meaningful.”
“You should take pictures with them and give them good cheers, then forward the pictures to me.”

Therefore, these pictures would be made into a Birthday Album and would be better appreciated by me, than newspaper advertorials.”

The Governor said he will also use the opportunity of his birthday to commission the multibillion Naira 1.3 km underground flood control tunnel.

The tunnel extends from Atiku Abubakar Avenue to Olusegun Obasanjo Way.

Other Projects to Commission on that day Include the restoration of the surface drains and concrete walk-way, as well as the Rehabilitation Works on Afaha Ube to Ikot Ekpene Road, Uyo.

Accounting to Udoh, more projects across sectors will be commissioned in the lead-up to the First Anniversary of the administration on May 29, 2024.

He said some of these landmark infrastructural projects were executed ten months into his administration.

Also, he announced that there will be a Thanksgiving Service by 4pm, later on the Governor’s birthday at the iconic International Christian Worship Centre, Uyo.

He said this is to thank God for all He has done in the life of the Governor.

“All those who are disposed are invited to attend,” Udoh announced.
