“It is heart warming to note that you have through hard work, discipline and uncommon vision won the admiration and respect of Akwa-Ibom people and the nation at large.
“Your focus and commitment to the industrialisation and development of Akwa-Ibom state is legendary and worthy of commendation, he said adding “the people of Akwa-Ibom didn’t make any mistake when they overwhelmingly re-elected you for a second term in office to guarantee a brighter future ahead of them.
“On behalf of the government and people of Delta state, I heartily rejoice with a reputable politician, outstanding professional, seasoned administrator and my brother governor, Udom Emmanuel of Awka-Ibom state as he turns 53 years.
“It is our prayer that God will continue to protect you and grant you good health to render more services to mankind,” Okowa stated.
