Udom Emmanuel, governor of Akwa Ibom, has declared zero tolerance for crime of any sort in the state.


He made the declaration while treating guests to a luncheon at the government house, Uyo after the 2020 edition of “Akwa Ibom Solemn Assembly”.

“I use this opportunity to announce that in 2020 there will be zero tolerance on anything that will disrupt peace in the state no matter how well placed that person is, once you do anything that will disrupt peace the law will catch up with you,” he said.

“I love my state, I love my people, no bitterness, no offence to anybody. Politics is over we are now in governance if you have ideas contribute ideas let us move the state forward. I won’t stop saying that this is the time for us to move this state forward.”


Speaking on his policy on energy, Emmanuel said his administration has prioritised investment in the power sector to ensure availability of power to all and disclosed that one of the biggest power sub-station will soon be constructed in Oron.

“We will build sub-stations, now we are negotiating for one of the biggest sub-stations in Oron, I am asked to provide right of way and we are working on that now,” he said.

Speaking further, the governor said, “I also want to thank God for the unity of this state; first time ever in Akwa Ibom, there is nothing like Ibibio, Oron, Annang, Obolo, Ikot Abasi, Onna, all of us are Akwa Ibomites. I really appreciate our elders, I appreciate our royal fathers, I appreciate our fathers in faith for the unity, the love we are enjoying in this state. Above all, I cannot end thanksgiving today without thanking God for the peace we enjoy in this state”.
