Architect Victor Attah at 80

We congratulate the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State on the occasion of his 80th birthday. we extol Obong Attah, who is usually described as the father of modern Akwa Ibom, for his inspiration and tenacity in the development of the state.   

The National Coordinator of 1001 + voices, Obong Ide Owodiong-Idemeko, praised the former Governor for being a rallying point for the people of Akwa Ibom state and the Niger Delta region. He praised the former Governor for his leadership and vision in the fight for resource control.  “During his reign as Governor of Akwa Ibom State, he earned the respect of Nigerians and was a rallying point and liberator for the people of the Niger Delta on derivation and resource control. He improved telecoms, electrical power supply, and laid the foundation for air transport infrastructure”. 

The group noted that it is an indisputable fact that Obong Attah’s visionary leadership laid the foundation for the progress and development of Akwa Ibom State. Most of the outstanding landmarks in the state today like the Akwa Ibom State University, Independent Power Plant (IPP), the world-class five star Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort (the best in Nigeria with 18 holes Golf course and 9 holes practise pitch), and Ibom International Airport with a hangar and maintenance facility, to mention a few are all Attah’s projects.
