Gov Umo Eno To Recruit Health Workers, Assures Fair, Transparent Process


Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has assured that the planned recruitment of health workers in the State will follow a fair, transparent process, based on merit.

Governor Eno gave the assurance at the May edition of Government House monthly Covenant Service held at the Banquet Hall, Uyo.


He noted that the recruitment examination will be computer based, in compliance with international best practices, and warned interested persons to desist from unnecessary pressure on anyone as such will be counterproductive.

The Governor who made reference to the recent screening and appointment of permanent secretaries in the State, said the government under his watch will continue to ensure fairness to all and transparency in all its dealings.

He disclosed plans for a training programme by Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) for all Permanent Secretaries, adding that there is always the need to learn, unlearn, and relearn.


Governor Eno also used the opportunity to shed more light on some of the activities earmarked for his first anniversary in office including the flag-off and commissioning of projects, Children’s day, thanksgiving service and others.

He noted that in the second year, government will turn some of its idle assets, both within and outside the State, to profitable ventures, while also continuing with its rural development initiatives.

The State Chief Executive who is a seasoned entrepreneur, stated that the Ibom Icon Hotel will be overhauled for maximum utilisation.

He appreciated Most Rev Dr John Ayah for his thought-provoking homily and everyone for taking part in the service, assuring that he will continue to focus on God for the grace to serve the State better.


Earlier in his homily on the theme, “Leadership and the Burden of Service,” Dr. Ayah who is the Catholic Bishop of Uyo Diocese, noted that Akwa Ibom is a land of promise, but through a concerted effort and harnessing of resources, it would move beyond a land of promise to a land of fulfilment.

Taking his text from 1 Peter 5:1-4, he admonished leaders to be exemplary in their actions, be people and service oriented, and focus on real time impact.

He commended the Governor for his laudable development strides within one year in office while urging the citizenry to protect public facilities in their domain while continuing to support and pray for the government.
