Akwa Ibom state Governor Udom Emmanuel has said that his administration has developed 10 viable industries in less than three years in government.
Speaking at a Town Hall meeting organized for Akwa Ibom Community in Abuja, Governor Emmanuel said that in the 30 years of existence as a state, if previous governments in the state were magnanimous enough to build a factory every year, the state would not have been where it is today.
Speaking further, Governor Emmanuel, expressed optimism that through the initiative of his administration in agriculture before the end of next year the state will produce 80 per cent of what it consumes.
While reassuring Akwa Ibom people that his government prioritizes development and employment for the youths, he disclosed that by December, a plywood processing factory and digital flour milling factory will be commissioned by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
