HOW WE JUST GOOF AT SMART PURCHASES. FOCUS: THE AFFORDABLE-LAND-IN-UYO OFFER by Uduak Umo

Image
A friend, Godwin Uduak Inua said to me: "When morning break, you go teh dem Good Morning". I found this both hilarious and inspiring. That pidgin proverb addresses 3 classes of people we (@ Jabborro PR ) encounter in our marketing programme, the Affordable Land Offer. The first are Akwa Ibom people in the diaspora, who for 3 months had the opportunity to buy a plot of 500 square meters at $1400, thanks to the fall of the Naira. They foot-dragged. Now they have to buy same size at $1944.44, as the Naira is becoming stronger. That's $544 more. More bad news: the Naira is rising towards N250 to the Dollar, says analysts and per feelers from the office of the VP. If they bought now, they could save themselves $856 per plot. Second class are Akwa Ibom people who lament the takeover of lands in Uyo by what they call 'strangers'. They have enough to commit in investment, but they'd rather 'save for rainy days'

The Miracle of 22 Non-native Crops Growing in Akwa Ibom State

Image
By Uduak Umo -           How AKEES Challenged the Impossible -           The Mathematics of Making 33M with 17M on 10 Hectares Our fathers grew melon on our soil; we called it ‘ikon’ and another specie called ‘ndise’ in Ibibio. They grew wild cucumber called ‘ukpok’- the shell became palm wine cups when dried and the entrails used as sponge, dried. But for decades since “Oil and Gas” we have believed that high value vegetables CANNOT grow on Akwa Ibom soil. And then came AKEES. In his determination to achieve his agenda of Job Creation in Akwa Ibom State, Governor Udom Emmanuel established the Akwa Ibom Enterprise and Employment Scheme, AKEES, led by his SSA on Technical Matters and Due Process, Elder Ufot Ebong. Courtesy of this initiative, up to 22 crops that, previously, had been tested by several individual farmers and considered impossible to grow on Akwa Ibom soil; these vegetables are yielding everything from fruits to roots, to leaves, to revenue, to jobs.

THE MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THE AKWA IBOM HATCHERY PROJECT By Uduak Umo

Image
Akwa Ibom State has gone beyond debates on the functionality, or not, of the Poultry hatchery at Mbiaya Uruan. An assessment tour with the Commissioner of Information and Strategy, earlier Friday, confirmed that the State’s signature poultry project does a lot much more than sell day-old chicks. WHY THE HATCHERY The Udom Emmanuel led administration inherited a project site that was designated for a poultry hatchery facility. According to the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Technical Matters and Due Process, Mr. Ufot Ebong, who was also on the tour; “On the swearing-in of His Excellency, May 2015, he had promised industrialization. Afterwards, he actually informed his aides that you cannot hang industrialization on nothing. You must provide the raw materials. That’s where he came up with that statement “all you need is all you have”. By March 2016, we were able to get an investor from Ethiopia, Prime Poultry. They came in and we were given marching orders t
