On behalf of the government and good people of Akwa Ibom State, I send you our warm felicitations on the occasion of Your 78th birthday celebration.
You have been a strong advocate for the development of our dear State, a calming voice for reason, rationality, justice and equity. As the governor of our dear State for eight years 1999-2007, you put Akwa Ibom Issues and concerns at the front burner of our national discourse and ensured that our collective voice was heard in the boardroom of the Nigerian enterprise.
As you turn 78 today, my prayer is that may God Almighty bless you with good health and an abiding sense of discernment so our people will continue to drink from the fountain of your knowledge and wisdom. Once again, Happy Birthday and many happy returns!
Udom Emmanuel Governor,
Akwa Ibom State
