Published

.
On the 4th of June,2015,the sixth session of the Assembly was formally inaugurated signaling the commencement of the official functions of the twenty six members. This brief report highlights the performance of Hon. Monday Eyo as it relates to relationship with his constituents so far in less than three years.

To begin with his open door policy approach,the amiable lawmaker has ensured that the electorates have unhindered access to him at home and in office.There is nothing like visitors notebooks or slips.Through this, interactions steam smoothly both ways to share ideas and contribute collectively to advance Uyo.

Hon.Eyo steps further to visit and also host political elders as well as other constituents periodically to update them of development in the Assembly and the State. He is visibly a youth friendly representative, that is why his presence anywhere attracts hordes of young people from diverse walks of life.

In terms of educational support to youths,the lawmaker who is a passionate believer that the only key to liberation is knowledge, has on his existing scholarship list four undergraduates studying courses in Medicine and Engineering. This is a far cry from the queue of indigent students he doles out ceaseless assistance to every school term.

He has used his office to facilitate admissions for many youths to higher schools of learning.Also he has not failed to identify with activities of students associations,which in appreciation the Uyo Students Association awarded him the most students friendly lawmaker.

Also,within his capacity he instituted a yearly grant for hundred students in higher institution and has graciously shown care by adopting two orphans pupils to train to university level.One beneficiary is the child of an Uyo indigene who lost his life during the Reigners Church disaster.

To further support qualitative education for the common class, he took off one hundred and fifty pupils from the bare floor to sit on fifty three seaters benches at Ifa Ikot Okpon,Etoi Clan.The village of a former council boss.

As his constituency projects,he has renovated a three classroom block at Ikot Obio Mkpong,Ikono Clan;a befitting library has been constructed at Ikot Ntuen in Oku Clan;at Atan in Offot Clan he has built a civic center,while in Ifa Ikot Idang there is massive electrification project.

Hon.Monday Eyo popularly called ‘Murray’ has graded roads in Etoi and Oku clans so far.While recently he provided transformers to Ndueotong Oku and Nsukara communities in Oku and Offot clans respectively.
.

Talking of empowerment, he has trained over three hundred and fifty women in various self sustaining skills.He choosed eleven women and empowered with one hundred thousand naira each to infuse into their small scale businesses.The lawmaker also assisted groups like Mboho Iman Uyo;Former PDP Councillors Forum;staff of Uyo origin in the Assembly with hundred thousand naira each to register cooperative society to facilitate government assistance to them.

His assistance to numerous functions like child naming, burials, marriage ceremonies etc.cannot be listed for reasons of confidentiality.These grassroots gestures are unavoidable in political spheres in the State.

He has built a security post at the police station at Shelter Afrique to support the agency to ensure security and peace around Etoi Clan and indeed Uyo.

His recommendations and sponsorship of over sixty youths during employment into National Task Force and  Peace Corp as well as other vacancies are commendable strides to make the people proud of him.

Provision of stalls at Ibom Plaza for women and youths of Uyo to be gainfully engaged has not escaped the appreciative note of the people.

Amaechi Vows To Release Names Of Those Sabotaging Security

Published

By


Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said that cabals are frustrating the recently approved $198m maritime security contract.

Amaechi vowed to publicly mention names of saboteurs while speaking at a Maritime Stakeholders’ Interactive Forum held in Warri, Delta State on Thursday.

He said “Reason, why vessels will not come to the Eastern ports, is because there is war insurance due to insecurity in the ports here.

“The war insurance means if the goods cost N10,000 in Lagos, it will cost N20,000 here because there is an extra cost on it due to Insecurity issues. Even as a minister, I can’t enter a boat ride from Warri to Port Harcourt due to insecurity issues, but I can move around Lagos at any time of the day.

“I once asked a former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, why people from Anambra don’t import from Port Harcourt port, and he said it cost less to import from Lagos and move to Onitsha even with the price they pay on the road. It is cheaper to import from Lagos to Aba, yet Aba to Port Harcourt is a 30-minute drive.

“For shipowners, you need to do a petition to Mr President. The President approved a contract of $195m for maritime security, but there are people in the system sabotaging the contract because it will restore security in the water. I won’t say who they are until it gets out of control. We are still battling for the contract to take place, but if it gets out of place, we will name them publicly, including the security people involved.

“There are people who make billions of Dollars from the insecurity on the water, so they don’t want security on the water because if we secure the water, all their rubbish will go.

“There are businesses which provide the vessel for oil companies in the name of providing security. The moment we secure the water, they are out of jobs?

There is another angle to look at this… No father in his right mind would do this to his own son!!! This is a clear case MENTAL ILLNESS/TRUMA probably due to the nature of his work. I am not a psychologist but I know in that in Nigeria  we lack the culture of looking out for the signs of mental fatigue amongst our workers in all sector. Military /Paramilitary have no proper way of been evaluated for any form of work trauma. This man could be having or experiencing trauma as the result of the nature of his job.

Published

Former Petroleum Minister Chief Don Etiebet says the current fuel crisis in Nigeria is caused by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Speaking in an interview in Uyo, Chief Etiebet the APC leader in Akwa Ibom explained that the petroleum distribution in Nigeria is controlled by PDP members who are causing the fuel hike to project President Muhammadu Buhari as a failure.

Buhari is the substantive Ministet of Petroleum in Nigeria.

“Who are still controlling the petroleum distribution in Nigeria; it is still the original PDP marketers.”

He attributed the fuel hike to the impending elections in the country, saying it is an attempt by the PDP marketers to discredit APC.

 “Election time is coming and they are doing all kinds of thing for petrol not to be available, and what do they want? They want increase I petrol price so that they can use that against APC”

Etiebet, who was minister of petroleum under Gen. Sani Abacha attributed all oil spill in the South-South Zone to illegal bunkering.

He said illegal bunkering in Nigeria where sponsored by the previous Government OF Chief Olusegu Obasanjo and Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

“Many Government in the past even up to the last Government have been supporting illegal bunkering; please quote me, I am the former minister for petroleum and I know the details”

On the proposed reintroduction of onshore/offshore oil dichotomy by the APC restructuring Committee, Dr. Etiebet said there was nothing wrong with the committee report.

“ I believe what the committee meant maybe oil discovered or produced outside that isoba boundary.”
