    The Governor of Akwa Ibom State has asked youths of the state to take advantage of the laudable programmes of his administration that are geared towards job creation and human capital development.
    Your Excellency we wish to ask you to spell out those laudable programs your administration has created so far that will develop the youth.
    We will no longer tolerate sentences of no value to the youth in our government again. We are indeed tired of Government policies that could only bring psychological relief but the thing in question is not done.
    Moreover, Akwa Ibom State youth are not limited to those sent to Israel for agricultural purposes or the very few children of the well to do who are at the helm of affairs.
    We wish to Remind our Excellency that He should not forget the Standing in the Sun shouting and singing ‘Udom Is Right’ or substitute the youth to the children of the well to do who never showed up even ones in the heat of the sun during the campaign… God is watching You ooo.
    Let your adviser on youth matters advice you well ooo. May God Open your brain to better plans for the youth…. The dividend music go round.
    I REST MY CASE
