UWANTA DISCLOSES FRIENDSHIP WITH SOIL
The Chairman Assembly Service Commission, Arch Bishop Andrew Uwanta who just turned 63 years few weeks ago said his secret friendship has been with the soil despite being an administrator.

Having served as a Chairman, Nigerian Association of Small Scale Industrialist (NASSI) Akwa Ibom State Chapter, Bishop Uwanta said his new age is a reminder of his purpose and leading a sustainable lifestyle which legacies will live on even after his life here on earth.
“A year older simply means that I should be wiser and engage more in sustainable source of income to be able to carter for myself and love ones. That legacy I will leave behind even when I am no more.”
He went further to encourage Akwa Ibom people to engage more in sustainable living which is farming.
“For me, farming is very important because every wealth comes from the soil. Even oil, gas, name it, comes from the soil. We should not neglect putting our hands in the soil.”
According to Farmer Uwanta, “I am currently supervising my Palm fruit refinery, Cassava Plantation and Plantain Plantation. There is so much wealth from the soil and I hope every Akwa Ibom person taps into this hidden treasure.”
On his recent appointment as a member, State Community Police Committee, Arch Bishop Andrew Uwanta said he will add up his quota to the success of the committee as the State was overdue to boost its security machinery through engaging citizens in the security of lives and properties in their respective localities.
He appreciated the Governor for deeming him fit and other members of the committee to boost security apparatus of the State Government.
