Governor Udom advised the new commissioners to be mindful of their conducts as forthwith they are seen as representatives of the government
“There are certain places you used to go, you will no longer go again, there are certain things you used to say, you may not be able to say again, because when once you speak now, you are speaking the minds of government.”
The Governor also charged them to take their duty to heart, discharging same without interference of personal interest. Promising them a state executive they will be proud of any time any day, very disciplined and purpose driven.
