“This occasion, therefore is a step in our efforts to reinvigorate and strengthen service delivery to the good people of Akwa Ibom State.
“We have within the last six years, built our state in line with the dreams of our forebears.
“We have come to a critical point in our journey as a state that demands that we introduce fresh hands into the affairs of governance, “Akpabio said.

The governor advised the appointees to see the entire state as their constituency.
“We expect you to help us to remain a promise-keeping and purposeful government; a government that does not play politics with projects”. He said. (NAN)
