Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State said on Saturday that the state planned to add ten A220-300 series aircraft to the fleet of Ibom Air.

He revealed the plan when he spoke at an event marking the 85th birthday of Obong Etim Abia, the Paramount Ruler of Eket in Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom.

“As I am leaving here, we are signing fresh agreements that will give us 10 brand new A220-300 Air Buses, so that even when I leave office, it will remain an enduring legacy,” he said.

Meanwhile, on other projects in the state, the governor said he would ensure that quality was not compromised.

He appealed for patience from Eket residents while reassuring them that all the projects would be delivered and appreciated long after his tenure.

Mr Emmanuel decried the fact that climate and weather conditions, the COVID-19 pandemic and other natural occurrences had impacted the pace of work.

Some of the projects include the Eket Stadium project, the International Market project, roads and other development programmes in the area. NAN
