The People of Amazaba in one voice have resolved as law abiding Citizens , never to renege on the MOU already signed by the two Communities as a mark of respect to the Akwa-ibom State Government. They showered encomiums on Gov.Udom Emmanuel for fast tracking the signing of the MOU between Amazaba in Eastern Obolo LGA, and Akpan Udo Villiage in Ikot Abasi LGA , all in Akwa-ibom State.
It is exactly 11 Years after the Communal crisis that led to the forceful ejection of the Amazaba People, from their Communities into exile, since 2008.
During the special thanksgiving service at Trinity Anglican Church, Isiotoyo, to mark the official signing of MOU and the re-election of Gov. Udom Emmanuel, and their own Son, the elected Member representing Ikot Abasi/Mkpat Enin/Eastern Obolo Federal constituency in the Federal House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Francis Charles Uduyork, with others for their victory at the poll, the people counted their ordeals as minority in the State to include total destruction of lives and properties, but not for divine intervention via our God fearing Governor Emmanuel Udom, and his seasoned/respected Deputy, H.E. Moses Ekpo.
The People appreciated the role of Rt. Hon. Francis Uduyork, the LGA Chair Person, Hon. Victoria Tallick, the Paramount Ruler of Eastern Obolo, HRM.Uboon Harry Etetor, and other Stakeholders, in ensuring that the peace accord is achieved.
During the thanksgiving service, Rev. Katomba Enoch , in his sermon, titled “Oh! come ,let us thank our God” (Ps.95) appreciated God for his faithfulness all through the time of agony.
The joy of the People affected knew no bounds over the news of their going back to their Ancestral home, while calling on relevant Government Agencies, Ijaw Nation, well-spirited, and kind-hearted Individuals, Friends of Amazaba, and well wishers to come to their aid, and donate to support us in the rebuilding of Communities that were affected, and ruined.
All the Organs of Amazaba, the Supreme Council of Chiefs, Women, Religious Leaders, Youths, and all the political Appointees of Amazaba extraction were fully in attendance, besides friends, and well Wishers.
As we have resolved in one voice to peacefully return to our homes ,as signed in the MOU, we call on the Youths of Ikot Akpan Udo to embrace PEACE as no one has the monopoly of violence. We can once again live in love and unity as Bothers to enjoy the dividend of the Governor Udom Emmanuel led Administration.
Long Live Amazaba!
Long Live Eastern Obolo LGA!
Long Live Obolo, and Ijaw Nations!
Long Live Akwa-ibom State!
Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria.
