From Ekpang Nkukwo Seller To Millionaire
The Dakkada philosophy of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, is beginning to yield fruits for those who keyed into the vision, as they were on Wednesday rewarded immensely for their courage and consistency.
While many young Nigerian graduates are roaming the streets in search of white collar jobs, Miss Blessing Emah, used the cooking skills she learnt from her mother to prepare Ekpang Nkukwo, 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 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 Ekpang Nkukwo 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, as Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, has appreciated her efforts and donated N1 million as a financial empowerment to her.
Hard working and consistency pay. Don’t despise the days of your little beginning.
