Miss Blessing Emah
The Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Udom Gabriel Emmanuel has come to the aid of an orphaned food vendor, Miss Blessing Emah by giving her a grant of N1 million for her business.
Harrison Essien who shared the exciting news revealed that Blessing Emah is a student of the University of Uyo.
He wrote: “FROM EKPANGNKUKWO TO MILLIONAIRE.
While many young Nigerian graduates are roaming the streets in search of white collar jobs, she used her cooking skills learnt from her mother to prepare ekpangnkukwo, Akwa Ibom’s most sought after delicacy.
Unfortunately, she lost her parents at a very tender age and as an orphan, life was extremely difficult for her, as she was unable to further her education to the university level and take care of her younger siblings.
Expectedly, her friends mocked her, calling her a school drop-out, but like an eagle, she remained focus in order to achieve her target.
Instead of forming a slay Queen on the social media or jumping from one man to another for survival, she borrowed N20,000 and startup the ekpangnkukwo business.
At a time that many young girls sleep in the comfort of their homes doing make-up or visiting prayer houses for miracles, she explored every available opportunity in the State just to showcase her cooking talents and market her products.
Today, because she is consistent and outstanding in her business, Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has appreciated her efforts especially by inventing Ekpangnkukwo flour and donated N1m as a financial empowerment to her.
The young millionaire is my Facebook friend, Miss Blessing Emah, a student of the University of Uyo.”
