Akwa Ibom Governor Honoured With ”’Leadership Governor of the Year 2016” award
Akwa Ibom governor, Gov. Udom Emmanuel is honoured as the “Leadership Governor of the Year 2016” by Leadership Newspaper in Abuja.
Leadership Newspaper had approached the Governor last December with this offer based on his achievements since he assumed office in May 2015. The organizers specifically elucidated on the reasons behind the award to include Governor Emmanuel’s strides in opening up rural communities in his state, and also for bringing seriousness and responsibility to governance.
The Leadership Newspaper award is a highly esteemed honour that has in recent times been accepted by even the most conservative leaders like former president Goodluck Jonathan and President Muhammadu Buhari who were joint awardees in 2015.
