Accompanied by the Vice chairman, Hon Barr Oyoyo Owai, the secretary of council Hon Daniel Enang, the supervisor for health Mrs Amatey, and a host of others, flagged off the project officially while declaring the community health centre opened for the world health organisations team.
The study which is aimed to check Antimalarial drug efficacy, is assessed through therapeutic efficacy studies (TES). The project is conducted in three different zones in the country, and my LGA being selected as the test centre for the South south region gives me happiness. I watched more than 30 of my people undergo the test and was assured by the project team that those tested will be treated accordingly.
TES are conducted in a controlled environment in which drug administration is supervised, the results of microscopic examinations of blood films are validated, and the origin and quality of the drugs are verified.
The exercise moved smoothly, with a hundred percent response and comportment from the people of Akpet One in Biase local government.
It is with great pleasure I welcome you to the month of September, a month that will be full of happiness and success in our personal and professional lives. Few months ago, I became the chairman of our great local government after a successful election processes. Before the elections I’ve reviewed the council performances and achievements both past and even at the absence of a democratic elected leader.
By my assessment and reviews, I and my team had set new objectives and priorities for our days and time in office and committed ourselves to implement them. To this end, we’ve validated two committees and with time form new ones, with assigned specific missions and tasks to ensure effective representation that will lead to sustainable growth and development of our dear local government.
It is my Ernest desire to work towards sustaining the projects of my predecessors and also reinforce the councils ties with the state government, to bring the best of democratic governance to the people of Biase and also connect with organisations to bring about change in areas that we are found wanting.
As we wake up to a new month, we must also look back but with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us – that although our challenges are great, each of us has the courage and determination to rise up and meet them. That together as brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers of this great local government called Biase, can make the ultimate difference that will put our dear local government in the global map. It is that spirit that has kept me as an individual focused and determined and it is that spirit that I believe will make all the difference and give us a head start that will make Biase great again.
I feel greatly honoured to be invited as the Guest of Honour at this august occasion, as the world celebrates resilient entrepreneurs. On behalf of my cabinet members and my councilors, I bring you greetings on the occasion of the world’s entrepreneurs day, with the theme “celebrating resilient entrepreneurs, winning against all odds”.
I congratulate the convener Mr Great Ogban (SA Entrepreneurship development) and urge that the effort be sustained and improved upon. Your choice of the theme for this year’s event is apt and germane to the current efforts to strengthen entrepreneurial practices among youths as a major factor to coop unemployment and ensure sustainable growth and a more productive Nigerian economy.
I am proud to be identified with this event because of its positive impact in the development of entrepreneurship globally and in our dear State. I believe, this day being set aside to celebrate entrepreneurs globally, is aim at ensuring consistent growth and development of entrepreneurs and also create awareness for entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership around the world. As an entrepreneur, I have over the years observed that Resilience is the key to moving through failed leadership or failed plans, or both. And it is a vital skill for every aspiring entrepreneur.
It is therefore important to celebrate an entrepreneur who climb through bumpy start-ups or sudden market changes against all odd. Today, becomes a fantastic time to hit the reset button to hit our lives as young people, as a state and also as a country, to shift our direction away from being average and mediocre, and push harder towards entrepreneurial revolution that will boost our economy and put an end to unemployment.
Asides celebrating the resilient and dynamic nature of entrepreneurs who are committed against all odds, I implore every entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur to unleash his or her creative and innovative energies that lies within, to solve the basic problem of our economy.
I implore the SA entrepreneurship development Mr Great Ogban to unravel critical issues militating entrepreneurial development and come up with strategic plans that will upscale the desired growth and development of entrepreneurship in Cross River State.
It is encouraging to see His Excellency Prof Ben Ayade the Governor of Cross River State, seeking ways to ease doing business in the State. Such efforts will give businesses and investors more confidence to grow their investments here. And also his role in enhancing agricultural practices in the state is so important in further adding value in the agriculture sector that will deliver a more diverse economy, but also enhance Cross River State food security.
CONCLUSION Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, I am fully convinced that entrepreneurship development will be the new face of our state sustainable development practice. I therefore appeal to all stakeholders to show commitment and support in the implementation of entrepreneurial development practices among young persons.
There is no gainsaying the fact that many businesses and aspiring businesses require funds, I urge the government to create policies and schemes that will enhance entrepreneurship development in the state.
While not pre-empting the keynote speaker, the special guest of honour and others who are here to celebrate world entrepreneurs day, it is my fervent hope that all the various facets of speeches delivered here today will be seen from the view that is aimed in promoting entrepreneurship development practices in Cross River State.
I urge every young person here, to explore creative and innovative ways of solving problems, as it is the bed rock of every entrepreneurial activity globally. I am confident that given the array of professionals gathered here today, implementable recommendations will emerge from this year world entrepreneurs day on strategies that will strengthen entrepreneurship development in Cross River State and the world at large.
Thank you all for your kind attention.
Hon Mrs Ada Charles. Executive Chairman. Biase LGA
