Foundation constructs N47-2m road project for A’ Ibom community
By Isaac Jacob
Mercy-Me Heart Foundation, a subsidiary of Capital Luxury Global, said it has facilitated the construction of a 5 kilometres road project estimated at N47.2m for Ikot Inyang community in Etim Ekpo local government area of Akwa Ibom state.
It has also commenced the construction of a classroom block for the community’s government primary school to address shortage of infrastructure in the school
The Foundation’s Managing director, Edidiong Udoidiong, an erstwhile student of the Primary School, while performing the groundbreaking ceremony for the classroom block on Friday said the initiative was in keeping with the promise he made to the community during the burial of his mother.
He explained that the Foundation decided to construct the road project to ameliorate years of frustrations and suffering by the community due to poor road network linking it and other communities
Represented at the occasion by the site Engineer, Xavier Edidiong, the MD called on all sons and daughters of the community to join hands with the State government in its efforts to promote grassroots development.
Edidiong said “During his late mother’s burial, he promised to build a standard classroom block in memory of his late mother and that is what he is doing today.

“The 5 kilometres worth over 47.2 million naira has paved way for a free flow of movement to and from the community as well create employment in the area for the local dwellers”
The village head of Ikot Inyang village, Udoakpan Udoekong in his remarks, described the gesture as worthy of emulation, saying it’s worthwhile for people to “give back to the society which had made them”
He called on God to continue to shower abundant blessings on the foundation to fulfil its mandates.
The Head Teacher of the school, Benedict Akpan, who spoke on behalf of the teaching staff also expressed appreciation to Mercy-Me Heart Foundation for coming back to fulfil its promise to the school and community and prayed that God should give the foundation the grace and strength to see to the successful completion of the project.
