The Bliss Experience: Akwa Ibom Gov Eno Assures Youths Of Support For Value-Added Talents

...Sets Age Limit For Next Commissioner For Youth Affairs

Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has reassured youths in Akwa Ibom State that his administration will continue to support talents and provide opportunities for youths to add value to society, as he proposes the next Commissioner for Youth Affairs to be a youth not older than forty.

The governor gave the assurances while addressing a gathering of young people at an Easter gospel music concert tagged “The Bliss Experience,” hosted by a renowned Akwa Ibom-born gospel music artist, Moses Bliss, at Unity Park, Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo, and offered prayers of blessings on all Akwa Ibom youths.

Governor Eno commended the young Akwa Ibom-born gospel musical icon, Moses Bliss, for making the state proud, assuring that his government will continue to support such ventures by young talents, which, he maintained, would serve as a model and inspiration to other youths, thereby adding value to the state.

He further assured that he would give due attention to the components of his administration’s ARISE Agenda aimed at giving indigenous youths with value-added talents a place of pride in his government and ensuring they have honour among their people.

“For me as a person, I love to see people who have talents and are ready to pay the price to develop that talent. I believe Moses Bliss has value. Look at the number of young people he has gathered tonight and the number of people he has mentored through the “SpotLite Nation.

“I know many of you are looking at me right now, have value. As long as I remain governor, I’ll continue to partner with you. I’ll continue to support your talents. I’ll continue to support your creativity and ensure we sell Akwa Ibom talent to the rest of the world.

“Don’t worry, the next time we appoint a Commissioner for Youths, he must be under forty years old. So that the Commissioner for Youths will be able to help us with all these youths,” he stated.

He spoke of plans to partner with the organisers of the event in collaboration with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in the state to host what he called “JESUS PARTY” to redirect the minds of the youth and take them off drugs.

Speaking before his performance, the star artist, Moses Uyoh Enang, stage named Moses Bliss, expressed heartfelt gratitude to Governor Umo Eno, the government and the people of Akwa Ibom State for giving him a grand homecoming, expressing his delight to be an Akwa Ibom son and pledging to continuously be proud of his roots and make Akwa Ibom State proud through his music ministry.

Earlier, in a brief exhortation on the theme “Home Coming,” Pastor Isaac Oyedepo of the Isaac Oyedepo Evangelistic Ministries, referring to Luke 15:11–24, said that just as the scriptural homecoming feast was not about the people already in the house but about the son that was lost but has returned to the father, so is the homecoming of Moses Bliss about every youth willing to find their way back to God.

He explained that this would begin with realising their separation from the family of God and returning to him, adding that then he would forgive their sins, be their father indeed, and there would be a homecoming feast in heaven.
