“With the recent appointment of Akunna Cook as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs by President Joe Biden of the USA, I feel highly elated & proud as a Governor of one of the most enterprising people on earth recognised for their hard work & dedication to the good causes of the world wherever they go.
Akunna who is a seasoned diplomat, policy advocate & attorney, is the daughter of Mr & Mrs Anthony Enewreuzor of Ntigha, Isiala Ngwa North LGA.
There will hardly be any other description that fits this daughter of ours better than that of the President and CEO of Whitaker Group, Rosa Whitaker who described Akunna as “a seasoned diplomat & Africanist with an impressive record of achievement in economic empowerment & equity for people of colour. Now more than ever, America needs experienced hands leading US policy towards Africa, Akunna is among the best!”
That’s the true spirit of Abia and I urge Abians everywhere to continue to dedicate themselves to the pristine causes of humanity and keep making us proud!
