REVEALED! Why Gov. Udom have not commissioned Dakkada Tower | SEE REASONS

Akwa Ibom Governor Udom Emmanuel has revealed that the 21 storey Dakkada Tower is one hundred percent complete, awaiting commissioning.

He stated this Friday, June 11, during an interaction with members of the State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Uyo.

According to the Governor, “if I had commissioned the Dakkada Tower, there would have been criticism that I have commissioned an empty building”.

“So I am waiting for occupants of the smart building to take over before I commission it. But I assure you that, Dakkada Tower is one hundred percent complete as we speak now”, Governor Emmanuel said.


He stated that the Dakkada Tower was among the projects he would have commissioned during the just concluded inauguration of inter-ministerial projects to mark his 6 years in office.

The 54-year-old said he had to put the brakes until tenants of the ICT compliant smart office complex commenced their operation within the building.

The Governor who was taking stock of his 6 years stewardship said the Dakkada Tower is bringing International Oil Companies to the state with the opportunities that will accrue to the people of the state.

While assuring the people that everything the government is doing is for the best interest of all the citizens, the Governor drew the attention of the Journalists to the massive IBB way erosion control project which his government is handling now, which had remained a perennial challenge to the people of the state for over 15 years now.

According to the Governor, the huge investment project is the first of its kind in Nigeria, spaning through 8.4km of concrete drainage measuring 12m wide and 10meters deep covering 3 LGAs, which will soon bring great relief to the people on completion.

Scoring his administration above 85 percent in performance, Governor Emmanuel said much achievements have been recorded in all sectors including: Education, Agriculture, road infrastructure, rural development, aviation and healthcare delivery and Power in the state.

He said the Ekim power station for instance, is such a huge facility that only the federal government could have ventured into, but his government took the bull by the horn and ventured into the project for the good of the people all in a bid to ensure the fulfilment of his “Power – For-all initiative”.

On the International Market in Eket, the Governor said, work has been completed awaiting occupation by the different merchants of various international goods while work on the Eket Sports stadium was nearing Completion awaiting only the fixing of the lighting system.

He appealed to the people to be patient and see what will become of the Eket remodelling project, which he said is on course.
