“The NDDC has enjoyed a robust relationship with the Akwa Ibom State Government under Governor Umo Eno. Gone are the days when the state government used to clash with NDDC.

“It is not a competition. The development between NDDC and the state government should bring blessing to the entire state.

Thank God, we have enjoyed a good robust relationship with the state government Pastor Umo Eno -same is applicable to other states of the federation”.
