Tilapia Island supports Abak Local Gov’t Secretariat Construction

Tilapia Island supports Abak Local Gov’t Secretariat Construction

In what many would describe as a rare show of patriotism, a leading recreational and tourism outfit in the State, the Tilapia Island Resort, Abak on Friday stunned staff and people of the area, by donating 100 bags of cement to support the completion of the 13 years old uncompleted Council Secretariat Complex.

Making the presentation, the Chairman Tilapia Island Group, Mr, Saviour Udo flanked by other members of the group said the gesture was borne out of the company’s resolve to maintain a sensitive business relationship that would promote shared values and responsibilities with the host community.

Mr. Udo noted that despite the biting economic realities in the country, the recreational outfit was committed to her corporate-social responsibilities and recounted that the group was moved by the hardship which lack of conducive office accommodation posed to council staff, in the decision to partner the council in completing the structure.

Expressing satisfaction with the warm and hospitable business climate the outfit has enjoyed, the Chairman of the group commended people of the area for their support and cooperation, which has afforded the outfit the needed encouragement to fulfill the dream of boosting the recreational and tourism fortune of the state.

He noted that apart from the donation in support of the secretariat project, the 8 months old outfit was considering ways of assisting the council with furnishing some of the offices, and announced plans to award scholarship to some indigent students of the area as well as undertake some community based projects as the resort’s first anniversary draws nearer.

Appreciating Governor Udom Emmanuel for foisting the right entrepreneurial spirit that has redirected the citizenry to economic productivity, the Chairman Abak Local Government Transition Committee, Barr. Emmanuel Udosen, while receiving members of the group restated the commitment of his administration to the completion of the complex, describing their high level of responsibility regardless of the downward economic trends as heroic.

Flanked by some members of his committee the council helmsman who was full of regret over the poor working condition faced by staff of the council, led members of the group round the facility and appreciated efforts made by past council administrations in ensuring the local government has a structure that befits the status of the area.

Describing the Tilapia Island Group as an exemplary character in the Governor Udom Emmanuel administration’s Dakkada initiative, Barr. Udosen extended the call on other business concerns operating in the area as well as well-to-do indigenes to emulate the Tilapia Island example by lending their support to the project.
