…Lauds his humility
Hon. Sterling Uruakpa, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC Abia State Chapter and a member of the Governing Council, Bauchi Polytechnic has congratulated the CEO of Harmony Foam Industry on his recent appointment as the Minister of State Science and Technology.
Uruakpa who described Ikoh as an epitome of humility, recounted on various landmark achievements of Chief Ikoh in the state, ranging from creation of massive employment opportunities to the teaming unemployed youths, as well as his benevolent attitude towards the people.
Hon. Uruakpa, in his remarks, pointed out that Ikoh had evidently left indelible footprints, saying Chief Ikoh acts without blowing his trumpet and that is what I pray others to learn.
“He is an epitom of humility, and his appointment as a Minister is well deserving. I started hearing about Henry Ikoh when I was in Secondary School and about his renowned Hamony Foam but got to know him very well during the last election.
Expressing his utter astonishment over the
good disposition of the newly appointed Minister of State Science and Technology, particularly during the just concluded primary election of the state, Uruakpa described Ikoh’s meekness, humility and modesty as ‘second to none’.
Adding, he said: “the president has a way of reaching out to the best men in appointments.
“I was so astonished about the person of Chief Ikoh as I watched him at the party’s last election. He was down to earth; his modesty and meekness are second to none.
“Chief Ikoh’s commitment in following High Chief Ikechi Emenike has attained him an enviable recognition.
“And may I state emphatically that many who are truly followers of Abia Apc Leader, High Chief Ikechi Emenike have been rewarded accordingly in one way or greater other.”
He, therefore, used the medium to encourage all abians to throw their weights behind the leader of Abia APC as we work to rescue Abia State for the betterment of the State, the Children and the upcoming generations”, he pleaded.H
Meanwhile, he implored Ikoh to endeavour to do more work for the state and nation with his newly given responsibility, noting that such would have his name written ‘on the sands of time’.
