The Akwa Ibom Chief Judge, Justice Idongesit Ntem-Isua, in Uyo on Saturday swore in, Valerie Ebe, as the first female Deputy Governor of the state.

Mrs Ebe took over from the former Deputy Governor, Nsima Ekere, who resigned his appointment on Oct. 31 shortly before his impeachment proceeding climaxed.

Mrs Ebe’s nomination was confirmed by the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly on the previous day following her nomination by the state governor, Godswill Akpabio.

Although the governor say gender was not a consideration in her appointment, he admits a section of the public would “definitely see her as being at the vanguard of our faith for more women participation in governance.

“By her appointment, we now have a triumvirate of women in key positions like the Chief Judge, Head of Civil Service and Deputy Governor,” the governor said.

Mrs Ebe is the first woman in the 25-year history of the state to hold the deputy governor’s position.

Ebe, from Mkpat Enin Local Government Area of the state, was born on March 26, 1947 and had served as Commissioner for Culture and Tourism and Commissioner for Environment.

She had also served as People Democratic Party, PDP’s legal adviser. a
