Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno, said he has authorised an update of the State’s social register.

The governor disclosed this during the government house monthly prayer service in Uyo, where he emphasised that the register was only for the vulnerable indigenes of the state to ensure that the government is able to reach out to them whenever the need arises.

Eno also cautioned stakeholders not to include the names of politicians or civil servants in the state noting that it was strictly for the less privileged indigenes regardless of the party they belong to.

He added that the state would adopt the register for its intervention programmes as he called for general sensitisation of citizens on the importance of the register.

He said:

“This week we will be updating our Social Register. All our PAs in the wards will be helping us. We all have work to do, so I ask that we please show some interest. All our Pastors, our fathers come from a place; show some interest in that social register. It will help us. That is what we want to be using as a state to help our people.
“I like to emphasize that this is not another political jamboree. Let’s make sure that it’s for everyone who belongs to that category, whether they voted for us or not. If we bring those divisions now it won’t help us. So the stakeholders, please just check to make sure they don’t put the names and bank accounts of people who are not from your village,
“I don’t expect my name or any of your names to be on the social register. Please don’t do it. It is meant for people that we can reach with very little things to support them. Please don’t politicize everything. It is not a PDP register. It is a social register for Akwa Ibomites. So long as that person is from there and you understand that the person is on that cadre, please put their names.
“It is not only for civil servants. We know those ones already.”
