All is set for the conferment of an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy of Science Degree in Social and Human Development (Ph.D Honoris Causa) on the wife of the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Her Excellency, Mrs. Martha Udom Emmanuel by the University of Uyo.
The award according to the University, “is in recognition of Her Excellency’s substantial contributions to improvements in human social conditions, development of hidden talents with capacity building among the youth and feats of philanthropy which have touched many lives.”
Holding on Saturday, 2nd November 2019, during its 25th convocation ceremony, the venue for the bestowal is at the Main Campus of the University, Uyo.
As an alumnus of the tertiary institution having bagged a degree in Biochemistry over two decades ago, Mrs. Emmanuel’s disarming humility and absolute baptism in the alle in the society are measurements of her humanitarian disposition.
Suffice also saying that this uncanny sense of compassion brought into governance by the governor’s wife , continues to serve as the plank for the deluge of succor her pet project, Family Empowerment and Youth Reorientation Path-initiative (FEYReP) is dolling out to many.
The decision by the University to honour one of its own in the person of Her Excellency, Mrs. Emmanuel Udom Emmanuel with a doctorate degree, is therefore most heartwarming to sane minds; because there’s no gain saying that the unprecedented achievements she has brought to fore in the past 4 years is worthy of emulation by wives of public officials.
Congratulations your Excellency on a well deserved honour!
