Excitement As Akpabio Celebrates Wife At Birthday


Mrs. Ekaette
Unoma Akpabio, former First Lady of Akwa Ibom State and wife of former Senate
Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, is a year older.

 Eka Esit Mbom, as she is fondly called, is a
loving and lovable creature of God.

June 9 of
every year has always been special for Mrs. Akpabio and her lovely family and
this year is not an exception.

The only
difference, however, is that rather than throw a lavish party, Mrs. Akpabio has
decided to have a low key celebration with her family and friends at their
Abuja home. To Mrs Akpabio, celebrating one’s birthday is essential, but
helping others, especially the less privileged, is more important. She believes
that wealth is given by God to whom He pleases, and whatever is given to you by
God is not for your benefit alone, but 
for others. That is the way she has structured her life over the years.
Service to humanity and giving hope to the hopeless. Many women do noble
things, but she’s surpassed them all. Her pet project, Family Life Enhancement
Program (FLEP), has been a channel of joy for the less privileged and the
down-trodden. Students, widows, the 
homeless, traders, the sick, among others, have benefited immensely from
her various humanitarian endeavours . Interestingly, Mrs. Akpabio detests any
form of noise about herself or her philanthropic gestures; she doesn’t blow her
trumpet despite all she has achieved in that aspect.  In short, she is just so passionate about
helping others.As an American author, Buckminster Fuller, has rightly put,
“There is no joy equal to that of being able to work for all humanity and doing
what you’re doing well”.

That, no
doubt, is what has been guiding Mrs. Akpabio in providing services to humanity.
Apart from being deeply engrossed in her humanitarian activities, she is also a
loving wife to her husband and a wonderful mother, not only to her biological
children, but  to many others out there.

She has
again been a pillar of support to her husband in his political journey.

No wonder
Mrs. Akpabio is well loved and respected among her people, family and the
society at large.

Here is
wishing Eka Esit Mbom, a happy birthday today and always.
