A'Ibom State Consultative Forum urges Gov. Udom Emmanuel to eradicate Cultism

Akwa Ibom State Consultative Forum has urged the state Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, to eradicate cultism from the school system and governance.

In a meeting presided over by the former Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Chief Nduese Essien, in Uyo, on Sunday, the group appealed to Emmanuel to encourage local contractors to thrive but not to do away with foreign contractors.

The group stated that by encouraging local contractors, there would be internal circulation of democratic dividends in the state.

“Much as the governor has the overall power in the appointment of members of his cabinet, there is the need to consult the elders of the local government areas concerned. 

“The local government areas should be made to submit recommendations to be considered for Exco members and other political appointments.

“Local contractors should be encouraged but not necessarily dispensing totally with foreign contractors to enhance internal circulation of democratic dividends,” he said.

The group also advised the state government to set up a Border Area Commission in order to take care of special development challenges in such places.

The elders advised the governor to ensure that free education policy continues, adding that teachers at the level should be motivated and supervised.

They said, “The forum also advised that technical education should be improved upon in the state, and Government Technical College, Ikot Ada Idem, should be revived while similar institutions in the state should be upgraded to meet the expectations of the present time.

“The forum advised that practical agriculture should be re-introduced in the schools for self-sufficiency in food production.”
