…adds additional 500k fuel money

In a clearly new year soul lifting gesture, the immediate past Honourable Commissioner for Environment and Petrouleum, Rt Hon.(Dr) Ekong Sampson has gifted a car alongside an additional five hundred thousand naira for fuel to Samuel Udoma, the Chancellor, Forum of Akwa Ibom Online Media Practitioners(FAOMPRA) and a close aide of his.

Dr Sampson made the heart warming presentation last evening at Watbridge Hotels&Suites, Uyo. Offering valuables exhortations to Udoma before handing over the car and other documents, Dr Sampson said the gesture was his way of helping young people grow to full potentials, praying that the car becomes a source of greater blessings and expansion to the receiver. He praised Samuel Udoma as a hard working, diligent young man who deserves to be encouraged.
The former State Assemblyman further assured that he is ever ready to support more young people from Mkpat Enin and beyond who are willing to advance on their endeavours most especially educational advancements to help them reach the zenith of their careers.

Dr Sampson equally used the opportunity to call on politicians to help develop young journalists grow positively instead of backing them for dark jobs.

He further called on youths to be wary of those he described as ’emergency philanthropists’, who do not have their interests at heart rather than to use them for their selfish aspirations’.

It is worthy to note that the car and cash intervention were given under the auspices of the Ekong Sampson Empowerment Programme(ESEP) which has over the years given more than 100 cars, placed people on lucrative jobs, offered grants and scholarships among several other laudable interventions. Deserving of mention also is the fact that nearly everyone working closely with Dr Sampson have over the years enjoyed great interventions from him either in the form of a house, a car, marriage, business expansion or educational advancement.
