Wife Of Ibesikpo Asutan Lawmaker Commends Governor's Wife For Giving Women A Sense Of Belonging

The council hall of Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area, Nung Udoe, was filled to capacity as the women of the area came out in their large numbers to gather for their monthly prayers for the first time after the coronavirus lockdown to praise and thank God for keeping and preserving their lives during and after the pandemic.


The wife of the member for Ibesikpo Asutan State Constituency, Mrs Ememobong Uko, thanked the women for coming out in their large numbers to praise and thank God and also lauded them for their commitment in keeping the fire of the monthly prayer summit burning. She commended the wife of the governor, Mrs Martha Udom Emmanuel, for carving a niche for women in the state and giving them a sense of belonging in the present political dispensation, describing it as unprecedented in the history of Akwa Ibom politics.

 "I want to thank the wife of the governor from the depth of my heart for giving the women a voice in Akwa Ibom politics. We can see women emerging as council chairmen, council vice chairmen, councillors, supervisory councillors and special assistants, among others. The governor's wife has carved a niche for Akwa Ibom women and we are very proud of her, Uko stated. 

The lawmaker's wife used the opportunity to congratulate the chairmanship hopeful in Ibesikpo Asutan, Mrs Akon Michael, attributing her success at the primaries to God whom they served diligently. She called on the women to keep serving God and not relent as better days were coming, hoping that their efforts will not be in vain. Michael thanked the women for their steadfastness in the monthly prayer meeting, commending Uko, the initiator, for her support in sustaining the meeting. 

The chairmanship hopeful also used the opportunity to thank everyone who prayed and contributed immensely towards her emergence as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship candidate, assuring that she will carry everyone along including the women and make Ibesisikpo Asutan better than she met it. In her homily, Bishop Emilia Samuel, who spoke on the theme My Decision, charged the women to always make good and right decisions as a good decision guides the future. 

Drawing her message from the book of First Kings 3:16- 28, she advised the women against taking decisions that will divide the local government, but rather decisions that will build Ibesikpo Asutan and take it to greater heights, calling on them to take decisions that will sometimes let go of some of their rights for the sake of peace just as the harlot in the Bible who took a decision that was later beneficial to her. "Don't act by what people tell you, but always be led by the spirit of God to take useful and rightful decisions at all times, Samuel stated. 

The clergy warned the women not to disrespect their husbands at home in decisionmaking, but rather play their roles as wives and mothers perfectly to bring out their sterling qualities which will make their husbands show them love the more. She congratulated Michael on her emergence as the PDP chairmanship candidate for the forthcoming local government elections, describing it as God's divine reward for her unrelenting commitment in the presence of God. In attendance at the prayer meeting were the wife of the head of civil service of Akwa Ibom State, Mrs Uduakobong Effiong Esien and other personalities.
