Uyo —Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Charles Udoh, has said Governor Udom Emmanuel does not play politics with development projects, stressing that the administration was committed to providing an enabling environment that would attract investors to the state.
Udoh made the disclosure, weekend, in Uyo while reacting to insinuations in Ikot Ekpene senatorial district quarters that the non completion of the projects started by the previous administration, including the Uyo-Ikot Ekpene road, contributed to the face-off between the incumbent governor and his predecessor, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
The commissioner said the state of the road, despite the several litigations that had stalled the progress of work initially points to the fact that the Governor Emmanuel’s administration was not playing politics with development projects in the state.
Udoh said: “Like the governor always say, the government of the day is not playing politics with development projects. He is also not playing politics with governance.
“The government of the day is looking at how to transform the landscape of Akwa Ibom economically, socially and in all ramifications that you could think of.
“What Governor Emmanuel is doing is to build development projects that will stand the test of time, projects geared towards ensuring sustainable development of the state.”
