I will reward those who worked with me to victory – Pst Umo Eno

By Isaac Job, Uyo

Akwa Ibom state governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has said that appointment in the new cabinet and personal aides will be a reward for those who worked with him in the trenches during the campaign across the 31 council areas in the state which resulted in his victory.

Speaking in Uyo on Thursday, during the maiden Government House Covenant Service on the theme “The God of New Beginning”, pastor Umo Eno said his appointment of State Executive Council members and Personal Aides will cut across people who are experienced in governance and had gone with him to the trenches having worked for the emergence of his administration.

Umo Eno explained that the vision and blueprint of his administration will be interpreted by persons of proven integrity, dint of hard work and capacity to translate the vision of government in the best interest of the state.

The governor, who was reacting to criticism that heralded the appointment of old aides in his team, said the appointment will reflect hard work, selflessness, dedication and loyalty in his administration, adding that appointment of commissioners and aides will be a blend of experience to enable the appointees catch up with the pace of the new administration and move the state forward as there is no room for mediocrity.

“I will work with everyone else to set up a new agenda; we like to bring in a little twig like I keep saying don’t expect that kind of miracle that you don’t want to see old faces again it should be new faces, it won’t work like that.

“We need the wisdom of the old to navigate the new and so you’ll see a mixed grill of the new and the old.

“I won’t leave people who were with me in the trenches that went to 31 Local Government Areas with me. I won’t leave them for people who have CVs, but you will see the old, you will see the new faces, but most importantly, you will see those that were with us in the trenches maybe this is a platform to say that the appointment of Personal Assistants will come as a reward,” he emphasised.

Umo Eno, who appreciated God for his mercies throughout the electioneering campaign, lauded the Fathers in faith for their prayers, assuring that God will lead the state to a greater height,

“The God of the new beginnings will go with us and it is only if he goes with us that we will accomplish that which God has sent us to do, I thank you for praying with us,” he added.
