Akwa Ibom State under Chief Godswill Akpabio has provided free medical care for all infants up to the age of five and for all pregnant women. Adults above 65 years of age are also enjoying free medical services. To support these, the government has put in place medical infrastructure such as cottage hospitals in each local government to cater for the health needs of our people. The jewel in the crown is the Ibom Specialist Hospital which will be a centre of excellence for medical care and a big boost to medical tourism. In the words of Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, “Akwa Ibom under Governor Akpabio has attained a quantum leap in infrastructure development”. The State has indeed become the infrastructural leader among Nigeria's comity of States. These gains and momentum of development must be sustained and built upon. All the infrastructures that the State needs to take a leap into the league of highly industrialised States have been put in place.
Akwa Ibom is ready for the next stage of development. What will make the difference is embedded in the very popular Latin saying “Nemo Dat Quod Non Habet” which basically means “You can't give what you don't have”. In this case, the leadership that can seize opportunities and build on this great foundation that has been laid. What is required now is a proven manager of men and finances, who shares in the vision of His Excellency and has the courage to lead Akwa Ibom in its next quantum leap into industrialization, economic empowerment of its people, and wealth creation.
