Akwa Ibom Government discovered that cultism has been introduced and invaded primary schools across the state which is not a welcome development towards the free and compulsory education and especially our educational sector.
Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel Stated this during the Ati Annag Foundation 25th Anniversary/ International Convention grand finale in Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area, said ‘‘The entire development is unfortunate and may jeopardize our children education as Government would not tolerate such development rather as we train them to become good future leaders.’’
According to him, Government would not tolerate such monster called “Cultism” to invade our educational sector and advise those encouraging the activities to desist before they face the full weight of law. Without any compromise.
The Governor said Government would not leave any stone unturned as they sink much funds in the educational sector while he used the occasion to commend Ati Annang for pulling their weight to support his second term bid which was a dream come true and advised them to continue to promote our cultural heritage and pitch the DAKKADA Philosophy.
The International President of Ati Annang, Rt. Hon. (Sir) Udo Kierian commended the Governor for recognizing their support towards his second term bid and believe Ati Annag as a socio-cultural organization in the state would continue to support his government.
The International President used the Occasion Opportunity appeal to the Governor to extend hand of fellowship to them, as they have a lot of project to execute as an organization while informed the Governor that the other handshake to them was used judiciously.
