30 Days in Office: Uyo Council Boss presents scorecard

Coming thirty days, after being sworn-in by Governor Udom Emmanuel, the Chairman, Uyo Local Government Council, Elder Imoh Okon, has presented a scorecard of his achievements within the period, reiterating his determination to raising the bar in local government administration.

Interacting with news men in his Office, in Uyo, yesterday, Elder Okon hinted that he has heightened security within and outside the Council Secretariat, saying, the Secretariat had suffered incessant robbery attacks due to lack of internal security.

Within the period under review, he said he convened an emergency security meeting, where he reviewed all security situations within the Secretariat, stressing that some averaged security personnel have been replaced with vibrant ones, to meet up with security challenges within the Secretariat.

He said he had also met with the Police and other security agencies to partner with the council's internal security, to bar hoodlums from further breaking into the council premises.

On other gains of his thirty days stay in office, the Council Boss said he has fixed all conveniences within the Council Secretariat, stressing that none of the facilities were fully functional prior to his emergence as Chairman.

"Before I came into Office, none of the conveniences had water flowing, but as I speak, we have four functional conveniences in this secretariat, you can check for yourself", he said.

He also cited the provision of desktop computers within the Secretariat and grading of some roads in the area as other strides he has recorded within the period under review, stating that he has also motivated Council staff for greater productivity.

"In thirty days, we organised a Family Get-together for all Council staff. We hosted them, their children and even grandchildren because they all belong to us. The staff are happy, because on January 2nd, when I went round the offices around 3pm, I was shocked to see that all the workers were on seat", he added.

Other achievements he listed, include the recent burial of the Paramount Ruler of Uyo, Surveyor Edem Silas Akpan, signing and release of Certificates of Origin, stocktaking of public offices, and said efforts are underway, streamlining activities at the Akpan Andem Market.

He used the opportunity to announce the first Uyo Economic and Political Summit which he said is slated for January 18, 2018.
