Following the epileptic power supply experienced in Akwa Ibom State, the governor, Udom Emmanuel has assured the state of improved adequate power supply.
Speaking with journalists at the Akwa Ibom International Airport, Emmanuel admitted that he still has a lot to do in addressing the issues in the state’s power sector.
He noted that the success recorded in the power infrastructural development of the state was part of his blueprint to develop the sector, in line with his campaign promises.
Referring to the on-going power sub-station project in Ekim, Mkpat Enin local government area being undertaken by his administration, Emmanuel said, “I just had a meeting yesterday with the management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to see what we can do in terms of Ekim, once we take that on, we take on Oron, I can now come back to answer your question; but I know where we are going to.
“When I was campaigning, I said these things are not rocket sciences, it takes dedication, sincerity of service to get these things done. As I said, we are just trying to test out what blueprint we have, just give us a little time.”
