Prepare Yourselves For Leadership: Aniekan Bassey Tasks A’Ibom Students


The Speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Aniekan Bassey, has charged students in the state to prepare themselves to take up leadership positions in the nearest future.

The Speaker gave the charge on Thursday when he received members of the Students’ Union Parliament of the University of Uyo in his office.

The Lawmaker, while urging the students to adapt to new ways of learning, admonished them not to only focus on student’s politics but also on issues of financial independence and self-reliance.

He urged them to channel their energies and time into productive ventures which will benefit their communities and be ready to face challenges, which he said will groom them into more responsible adults.

Earlier in his speech, the president of the Students Senate, Senator Edwin Godwin, while thanking Rt. Hon. Bassey for the warm reception, appealed for guidance from the 7th Assembly to aid them (the students) in policy formulation and implementation for student development.

He maintained that the Students’ Parliament has not only helped them develop leadership and communication skills, but has provided a forum for presentation of ideas that affect the students.
