Esuene’s empowerment gets another backing

The people of Ene Ekpene Village council has thrown their weight of support behind the last empowerment of Senator Helen Esuene describing a publication which sought to discredit the empowerment in one of the state based tabloids (not THE INK) as spurious and unfounded. 

In a communiqué signed by Chief Enim Ekandem, village head and Deacon (Chief) Akanimo Tom and made available to our reporter last weekend, the village council said, we can say that the 2013 empowerment scheme was a rare display of selfless, avowed commitment to positively affecting the lives of her people. The event which was held at the Qua Iboe church Primary School, Usung Inyang Eket saw no fewer than 290 people empowered with various car gifts, sewing machines, hair dressing equipments, giant screen TV sets, standing fans, musical equipments, gas cookers, deep freezers, cameras, financial assistance and scholarship to the admiration of all present.

At no time was Senator Esuene disgraced at the occasion, rather, she received plaudits from all present, including the Executive Governor of the state, His Excellency Chief Godswill Akpabio, who was represented by his Deputy, Lady Valerie Ebe and his Special Assistant on student matters Comrade Ini Ememobong.

It is noteworthy to state here that senator Esuene’s impact on her constituency since assumption of office in June 2011 has been unprecedented, and have stood her out as a reference point in quality and effective representation.

They went ahead to list some of the achievements of Helen Esuene to include, Women war memorial/waiting hall in Ikot –Abasi local Government Area;
Production centre in Eket;
Mini oil mill in Esit Eket;
Solar powered borehole in Esit Urua, Eket Local Government;
Fish drying centre in Mkpanak, Ibeno Local Government Area;
Fish drying centre in Mbo;
Training of thirty-One youths in various skills by the Ministry of Youth Development.
250 gas stoves supplied by the Ministry of Environment as part of the clean cooking pilot scheme amongst others.

The release further advised all media practitioners in the state to desist from being used as hatchet men in the hands of disgruntled politicians to rub tar on the personality of eminent people from the state, especially when this is done without any substantiating fact, but with the sole aim of pulling that person down.
