Sen Emmanuel Ibok-Essien
Outstanding Patriot
Engr Emmanuel Ibok-Essien’s eyes have always looked towards home, the reason why all his investments, including one of the nation’s thriving private University, Ritman University, is sited at Ikot Ekpene.
As Senator representing Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District between 1999 and 2003 and Senate Deputy Chief Whip, he was one of the strong advocates for resource control and strong supporter of the fight against the obnoxious onshore/offshore dichotomy in the distribution of the nation’s oil revenue.
First Akwa Ibom legislator to be elected into the ECOWAS Parliament, Sen Ibok-Essien had served the state in many capacities before his election as Senator
