Eteidung Asikpo Urges Students To Shun Cultism, Societal Vices, To Attain Academic Goals

...As Right Choice Redemption Int’l Schools Honours Him

The Village Head of Ekpri Nsukara Offot in Uyo Local Government Area, Eteidung Emem Denis Asikpo, has advised students at all levels of education to concentrate on their studies and shun cultism and other vices so as to accomplish their academic goals and become successful in life.

Eteidung Asikpo, who is a member of the Offot Ukwa Clan Council of Chiefs, also urged parents and guardians to pay greater attention to moulding their wards towards the right path to ensure that they don’t fall victim to bad company.

Speaking at the maiden inter-house sports competition of Right Choice Redemption International Schools in Ekpri Nsukara Offot, Uyo, on Saturday, February 17, 2024, the village head said no effort should be spared in raising disciplined, focused, honest, and educated children as they are our future leaders.

“I want to appeal to students at all levels of education to focus on their studies. Do not be enticed into cultism or to join associations that will take your attention away from your academics. Cultism has ruined the lives of students. It has also led students to early graves.

“At all times, strive towards getting the best grades in your education. Your certificates will serve as your passport to a better future.

“Do everything possible to ensure that the investment made in you by your parents, guardians, the school, and the government is not wasted,” he added.

Eteidung Asikpo appreciated the school authority for honouring him by christening the Red House, which is one of the four houses in the school, “Eteidung Emem Asikpo House,” and assured the proprietor and the school authority of his support always.

He commended the school for creating a favourable environment for the proper education of children and urged them to keep up, as the village authority will readily identify with proficiently administered educational institutions in the community.

Earlier in his speech, the proprietor of Right Choice Redemption International Schools, Uyo, Pastor Emmanuel Emah, said the sterling leadership qualities and positive contributions of the village head of Ekpri Nsukara Offot, Eteidung Emem Denis Asikpo, will continue to attract commendations and accolades not only within his immediate community or local government but the state at large.

Pst. Emah said it was in recognition of the outstanding qualities of the village head that the school honoured him by naming one of the four houses involved in the inter-house sports competition after him, expressing delight at the many positive impacts the Ekpri Nsukara community and residents have enjoyed through the ingenuity and leadership of Eteidung Asikpo.

The proprietor, who described the royal father as a philanthropist and lover of development, further stated that through his selfless efforts, the community has enjoyed peace and tranquilly, even when he was the Village Youth President before ascending to the village headship of Ekpri Nsukara Offot.

At the end of the inter-house sports meet, with the theme “awakening the spirit of sportsmanship,” Eteidung Emem Asikpo House emerged as the overall winner.


Highlights of the event included sporting competitions and the presentation of certificates, medals, trophies, and prizes.
