The nomination for the African Governor with the finest Economic Blueprint goes to Governor Udom Emmanuel.
The West African Regional Magazine will give him the honor at the InterContinental Hotel in Luanda, Angola, during The African Regional Journal (TARJ) Forum and Trade Fair (Luanda 2022).
The event will take place during this year’s ranking of 100 outstanding Africans, with the topic “The Significance of Unity-in-Diversity in the Integration of Africa,” with an emphasis on promoting made-in-Africa products and linking African entrepreneurs.
The organizers’ statement from the event said that Emmanuel’s visionary leadership, with a business-inclined temperament and private-sector approach to governing, is contributing factor to the transformation of Akwa Ibom into an enterprise state
The awards’ organizers argued that under Emmanuel’s leadership, every aspect of the state had improved, including the healthcare industry, infrastructure, education, and many others. They also noted that the state was rapidly becoming a hub for aviation, with a functioning airline and a cutting-edge smart terminal building almost finished.
