•Commissioner for Information, Akwa Ibom State, Ini Ememobong
The Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Comrade Ini Ememobong has taken responsibility for the payment of law school fees for a first class student of the Faculty of Law in the University of Uyo, Ikanna Okim, in the 2020/2021 academic session of the Nigerian Law School.
Ikanna is daughter of News Express Executive Editor, Sunny Okim.
This benevolence by the commissioner, according to a press statement issued earlier today (Thursday) by the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Information, is to encourage academic excellence.
According to the statement,, the commissioner made this known on Monday, May 17, 2021 at the assembly hall of the Faculty of Law while speaking on the topic “The Lawyer: Utilizing Diverse Professional Opportunities” during “The Excellence Summit”, a Law Ted Talk organized for final year law students of the faculty and hosted by Dr. Idorenyin Eyo, a lecturer in the Faculty of Law who is also the Deputy Director of Research and Development in the University.
The beneficiary, Ikanna Okim, is a first class material who is on her way of making history as the first ever First Class Law graduate to be produced by the Faculty of Law of the University of Uyo.
Another beneficiary of the same goodwill from Comrade Ememobong is to be selected among the less privileged final year students of Akwa Ibom State extraction, who lacks the financial capacity to pay his or her Law School fees.
He also announced the donation of N100,000.00 each to two visually impaired final year Law students, Mr. Aniekan Akpan and Miss Mitchell Iniobong while the Law Students Association of Nigeria, LAWSAN, received a donation of N100,000.00 from the Hon. Commissioner.
Comrade Ememobong encouraged Law students to develop interest in and pursue a career across various sectors, including aviation, energy, telecommunications, technology, media and entertainment, manufacturing, real estate, banking and finance, and health.
He seized the opportunity to pay a visit to the Dean of Law, Professor Aniedi Ikpang and thanked him and other lecturers for laying a solid foundation for his academic and political development.
