His Excellency, Mr. Udom Emmanuel was sworn into office as Governor of Akwa Ibom State on May 29, 2015, and on May 29, 2019 for First Term and Second Term respectively. So far, he has established several industries, all aimed at developing the State.
Three major factors have made it possible for him to establish these factories: First, is his passion to develop Akwa Ibom State and create jobs for the citizens. Second is the fact that as an investment banker by training and experience, he wants to invest to improve the IGR of the state and raise the living standards of Akwa Ibom people. Third is his commitment to attract direct foreign investment. Accordingly, he has created an enabling environment for foreign investors.
