The occasion graced by friends and family members also saw Dr. Ekuwem adorned in his full regalia of his “Obong Ifiok Ibaka” title, saw the governor insisting that the unity of Akwa Ibom State is non-negotiable, stressing he was poised to ensure the whole state irrespective of tribes as part of his government’s political inclusiveness agenda.

“Akwa Ibom is all one, joined by a common destiny and aspirations and our unity in non-negotiable, our common ethos and fidelity to the Akwa Ibom project remains sacrosanct,” the governor said.

He also noted that the greatest asset by God to Akwa Ibom is her people, hence the people will make the different once united, just as he assured that every part of the state has a sense of belonging.

“I enjoin you to celebrate this mutually inclusive tendencies and put those naysayers, to shame that we will never be derailed from the path of unity and collectively sworn to uphold,” he declared, tasking Dr. Ekuwem on the high expectations of the government and the people who came to witness his swearing in.

Udom reminded Ekuwem that he must work to justify the reason for his appointment which was mainly to add value to the government industrialization process.

“We are happy that your name has gone across everywhere and it was your integrity that worked for you when you contested for and won as the President of Nigeria Internet Group” he said, urging Ekuwem to bring his leadership quality to bear so that the state could unite and bring everybody together, added, “from this moment nothing should divide the state as development has also been spread across the three senatorial districts.”

Akwa Ibom, Udom said, is one family, adding that nobody ever predicted where they were to be born, and sued for unity and love among all in the state.

He thanked the immediate past Secretary to Government, Sir Etekamba Umoren for a cordial working relationship with him from the time Umoren was the permanent secretary of the office of the governor till his appointment as then Secretary to Government.
