The 18 communities across the three local government areas of Akwa Ibom State, Tuesday celebrated respite from the plague of perennial flooding of over 20 years, as the state government inaugurated the 8.4km IBB and Environs Flood Control Project as part of activities to mark the state’s 35th anniversary.

Inaugurating the project, Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, accompanied by the immediate past Governor of Cross River State Liyel Imoke, -applauded the courage and ingenuity of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, in embarking on such a humongous project.
A press statement from the drawing from his experience on a similar project, Okowa asserted that the amount of money sunk into the project, if used for road construction, could deliver several kilometers of road that would attract a lot of praises and applauses.

He therefore commended Governor Emmanuel for the passion and selflessness exhibited in undertaking the drainage project and for the 10 portable water schemes for communities whose water sources were affected by the project, saying that such passion is indicative of the hallmark of a leader that cares for its people.

He lauded the people of the state for standing by Governor Emmanuel in his seven years of leadership in the state.

“There is a project that is lasting and impactful and only great men can do such projects because they think about today and the future.
“If he was thinking about today only, he would rather push that money into doing several kilometers of road, but he looked into the future and to conquer the future for the people of Akwa Ibom, he undertook this project.
“Only a bold, courageous and caring leader will do this kind of project,” Okowa said.

“I want to appreciate you my brother for this great thing that you have done for your people and I know that by the special grace of God, there’s a lot more for you to do not only for Akwa Ibom but for our nation Nigeria. 

"As Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council, the governor of Akwa Ibom State, I’m very sure, is capable, courageous and knowledgeable to lead the PDP to victory in 2023,” he said.
