Ufot Ebong, a Geologist, Sedimentologist, Asset Manager and Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Technical Matters and Due Process is one of the greatest assets to the government of Akwa Ibom State.
With over 17 years of professional experience in an oil multinational , Mr Ebong’s versatility and knowledge of corporate governance and political leadership can not be exaggerated.
His appointment as Senior Special Assistant on Technical Matters and Due Process by His Excellency the Governor is well -deserving and thoughtful on the part of the Governor, in that, with Mr Ebong’s corporate experience, financial waste and ‘cutting of corners’ in contract execution would be averted.
Ufot Ebong was the state coordinator of Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN , one of the pivotal socio-political groups that worked for the emergence of Governor Emmanuel.
His belief in Governor Emmanuel as the most credible material for the Hilltop mansion job emanates from his background which sees quality service -delivery as a product of hard work, diligence, humility and love, all of which Governor Udom Emmanuel epitomizes.
With Mr Ebong’s humble and people- oriented disposition, top-of -the-line professional pedigree and knowledge of corporate governance and contemporary leadership, one cannot but infer that the Obot Akara -born ‘industrial tactician’ has earned a place in Governor Emmanuel’s Dream Team 1.
