The member representing Ikot Abasi, Mkpat Enin and Eastern Obolo Federal Constituency of Akwa Ibom State, in the Nigeria National Assembly, Rt. Hon. Francis Charles Uduyok has continued to deliver key infrastructural projects and interventions to the benefit of his constituents.
In his latest interventionist project, the two time House of Reps member, who is also the leader of the ten member Akwa Ibom caucus in the red chambers recently handed over an eight classroom storey building to Methodist Secondary school in Ete, Ikot Abasi Local Government Area to cushion the negative impact of class room shortage in the foremost school.
In a telephone interview with this reporter, Hon. Uduyok describes the school building project as a key infrastructural intervention that is aimed at boosting the intake capacity of the school, especially as ‘the new normal’ occasioned by COVID-19 may not permit over crowding of students in classrooms.
He added that such was in fulfillment of his promise to deliver tangible dividends of democracy to the people of Ikot Abasi Local Government Area just as he is doing same in other LGAs in the constituency.
In his words, “the Methodist secondary school Ete project is one project after my heart. I had promised the people of Ikot Abasi that I will give them more infrastructural intervention in my second tenure in House of Reps. That secondary school is a foremost community school attended by children from up to five rural communities, we hope that with the addition of the storey building, we must have helped the institution to increase her capacity. The project is also timely as it will help the school to check overcrowding in classrooms in line with the new new normal occasioned by COVID-19”.
Away from the Ikot Abasi School project, Uduyok, known for his silent impacts in delivering beneficial programmes and projects in his constituency also has his footprints of development across the Federal Constituency.
Within just one year of his current mandate, he has carried out at least ten massive infrastructural projects and programmes including; the renovation of secondary school Ukam , reconstruction of Group School, Ikot Obio Nso and construction of Odoro Ikot Community Hall, all in Mkpat Enin LGA.
Okoroette people in Eastern Obolo Local Government Area are also enjoying their legislative impact as the member is constructing a town hall and also carrying out massive water reticulation project in their communities.
The member has also carried out three empowerment programmes as well as Covid-19 economic welfare campaigns to help his constituents minimize the negative impact of covid19 on their wellbeing.
Another silent achievement of Mr. Uduyok is the facilitation of employment for his constituents in the Federal civil service and armed forces. The Member is always showing commitment in linking youth of his Constituency to available opportunities in the Federal MDAs and armed forces.
While delivering dividends of democracy to his people, the Chairman, Sub Committee on Maritime, Education and Administration, has also ensured a perfect juxtaposition of his duties on the floor of the House with the relaying of impacts to his constituents.
On the floor of the House, he currently has fourteen bills and two motions to his name, and is also handling multiple vital assignments meant for experienced and trusted legislators, as given to him by the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajiabiamila.
The latest of such assignment is his recent appointment as Chairman of House of Rep’s Ad-Hoc Committee on Unspent Budget Fund amongst other sensitive assignments.
