Former minister of Lands and Housing, Chief Nduese Essien has advised that the bitter conflict that usually exists between Akwa Ibom State governors and their successors to the extent of disrupting development between administrations should be avoided in 2023.
Essien spoke on Friday during his presentation at a Colloquium organised by Uyo Book Club to mark the 82nd birthday anniversary of former governor Obong Victor Attah, entitled “Akwa Ibom State march towards sustainable development- The road to be taken”
He stressed that the application of sentiment-based passion to development could not aachieve sustainable development.
He lamented that a situation where a governor comes and abandons major projects started by his predecessor to embark on his ideas of major projects results in stagnation to growth and colossal wastages, citing the Science park, Qua River hotel, Tropicana, Four-point by Sheraton and E-Library as obvious cases in sight.
