Pictures Of The Ongoing Urban Renewal Of Eket, Akwa Ibom State By State Govt. by Atouke: 10:15pm On Aug 26, 2017
Eket, A major oil city in Nigeria located in Nigeria's Number one oil producing state of Akwa Ibom, has been neglected like all the other major oil producing cities across the Niger Delta.
As the federal Govt prefers to spend its money in the development of the upland parts of Nigeria, While neglecting its oil bearing Delta region.
The State govt. under Gov, Udom Emmanuel has elected to change all that by opening up the oil producing areas of the state.
It has recently commissioned a dualized highway from the Eket to Ibeno in the coast and work is in advanced stage at completing a dual carriage way from Uyo to Eket, In a matter of months it will be possible to drive from ikot ekpene which is Northern Part of the state to Uyo and all the way to ibeno in the coast on a dualized thoroughfare Courtesy of the state Govt.

presented here are the urban renewal project within the Eket city centre to bring it up to modern standard despite Federal govt. neglect.
the renewal projects include :
1.Widening and dualizing streets within the city metropolis.
2. Building of major flood/ storm drainage systems and underground sewage channelization.
3. Building of a major park at the city centre like the ibom plaza in uyo and ikot ekpene.
4. Construction of a new 10,000 all seater + covered Stadium At the site of the present Eket Sports Stadium.
5. construction of a Mordern Market. and many more.

the most interesting fact is that this remodeling is handled by Nigerpet Structures Ltd an indigenous company, which is building expertise internally and employing and training Nigerian youths.

I thought Eket/Ibeno highway is in partnership with ExxonMobil.

I just cant wait for that time when we have sky scrapers lining both sides of such roads across the country.

We really have no business being where we are today. Our leaders really need to sit up.

Good one, I would be coming to visit someone in this place soon, the pictures look unimpressive to regard it a city yet.

Keep on buying drone to snap the less than 1km, bridge to the market portion of the road since February until udom finishes his 8yrs in office. Was this project not all started during Akpabio's term? Wasnt the eket- ibeno road not started since before his tenure? Udom is only joking.

Eket used to be an eyesore when I visited last few months ago. I hope the government gives it a befitting face-lift as an oil city.

But it's not only about roads. Eket needs a plaza like Uyo and Ikot Ekpene. Eket also needs street lights, sidewalks, beautification, etc.

I'm wondering what Akwa Ibom as a state will look like in 10 to 20 years. Even towns like Eket will begin to compete with a lot of state capitals.

Nice but I hate to see a dusty road in our cities. It won't cost them much to buy mechanized road sweepers angry

Eket is suffering in terms of infrastructure, that eket-oron road is so dilapidated and I wonder if its so difficult for the governor to fix.
The pace of work generally in akwaibom is very very slow compared to when akpabio was the governor.
The governor needs to sit up

Bros stop taking pictures come and see things for yourself. Houses and structures were demolished without proper compensation. Imagine valuing your house at N30 million, after demolition you were given N5 million. Your pictures is to divert our attention from the project he started in Lagos. 2019 is around the corner.
