June, 08 - 2016 || Comments (0)



His Excellency, Mr. Udom Emmanuel on assumption of office directed that Ministry of Housing and Urban Renewal through direct labour convert the 10th Anniversary Hotel building to a new secretariat that will not only alleviate the accommodation challenges faced by over 28 MDAs but also enhance the architectural landscape of Uyo. This was because not only was Government expenditure on rent enormous especially in the face of dwindling economy; this fact did not allow for an efficient coordination of the activities of these MDAs.


  • The complex comprises 4 floors with a penthouse
  • 3 no. functional lifts,
  • Over 200 offices all ensuite,
  • 4 studios including a cartography room and laboratory,
  • 3 conference rooms,
  • One auditorium,
  • Emergency exits,
  • Complete fire alarm system,
  • 20,000-litre water tank,
  • Parking space for over 150 vehicles,
  • A generator house,
  • 2 gate houses,
  • A staff clinic with good landscaping.
  • Revenue generating facilities including a business centre, restaurant (VIP seating included) a complete set of scaffold for renting and an open space available for outdoor events.
  • Mechanical and Electrical workshops for repairs of vehicles open to the public.


One of the key focus of His Excellency’s administration is infrastructural consolidation and expansion and as such the project is a great achievement in the area of provision of state-of-the-art infrastructure for the State and alleviation of accommodation challenges for MDAs. This project with its revenue generating facilities will contribute to increase in State’s IGR.
