Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has commended the Akwa Ibom state Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, for the level of infrastructure development and industrialization drive in the state.
The Vice President stated when he inaugurated the Dakkada Towers, a 21-storey intelligent building initiated and completed by the present administration.
Professor Osinbajo described the building as one of the smartest and tallest in the country and applauded the governor for timely completion of the project.
The Vice President, who congratulated the government and people of the state on their 34th anniversary celebration, congratulated the people of the state for the achievements recorded so far and prayed to God for more grace for the Governor to do more.
He said with the level of infrastructure development and industrialisation, the state will soon emerge as the economic hub of the nation.
Earlier Governor Udom Emmanuel had said the building is an answer to the question of accommodation by international oil companies.
He charged them to relocate some of their operations to the state.
The Governor thanked Akwa Ibom people for their support and encouragement given to him since his assumption of office and pledged to continue serving the people.
The Vice President had earlier also flagged off the construction of the Dakkada Luxury Estate along Airport Road, Uyo.
