“Akwa Ibom State Youth Assembly is an association of Akwa Ibom youths, mainly students, Youth Corps and artisans whose main mission is to bridge the gap between the younger ones and the elders, therefore, as your father and royal father, I charge you to develop your self, be up and doing and  sustain your cultural values and heritage.”

I also want to encourage you to be good ambassador of Akwa Ibom in Oyo State worthy of  emulation. I believe the you are going to shine and make all Akwa Ibomites in the state, home and abroad proud”.
