Christians in Akwa Ibom State converged on the newly constructed magnificent International Christian Worship Center, Uyo, to join the State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, in a valedictory service winding down his tenure of office.

“I praise God Almighty that this had been made possible, I want to thank God for the past eight years, we worked day and night and turned all we have in to make this state better, I stand to thank God that we have ended strong”, he stated.


Governor Emmanuel acknowledged the Grace of God upon his life having given him opportunity to serve Akwa Ibom people and leave behind concrete achievements in all sectors by laying economic foundations for the betterment of the state, maintaining that God has led the State through thick and thin which calls for a thanksgiving service.

The Governor however expressed appreciation to the Fathers of faith, state Executive Council Members, the Civil Service structure, Legislature, Judiciary, the Press and the generality of Akwa Ibom people for supporting the vision and growth in the state in the past eight years.

In his homily, the guest preacher Bishop Simeon Afolabi of First Love Assembly, culled his text from Ezra 7: 25, drawing analogy from the biblical Ezra and Nehemiah who recognized God’s hand upon their lives and pointed out that Governor Emmanuel has done same by expressing gratitude to God through the thanksgiving service.

Highpoint of the service was the dedication of the International Christian Worship Center by Rev. (Dr.) Uma Ukpai.
