-To site cyber cafe in Ini LGA
Special Assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel on Students Matters, Comrade Otobong Aquilla has advised students from Ini Local Government Area to take advantage of the ongoing voters registration across the country and get registered.
She gave the advice yesterday during an interactive session with students leaders held at Mun Jerry hotel in Ini LGA.
