Meet Blessing Emah, an orphaned undergraduate of the University of Uyo who is currently trending online and just got N1m naira from Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel.
Blessing sells ekpangnkukwo, a local delicacy in Akwa Ibom State and took up the business when her parents died leaving her to cater for her younger siblings  – While many Nigerian graduates are roaming in the streets in search of jobs, Many ladies  taking to slaying as the only means of surviving, she used the cooking skills learnt from her mother to prepare ekpangnkukwo, Akwa Ibom’s most sought after delicacy, and just got empowered by the governor.

According to Facebook user, Harrison Essien, who shared her story, he wrote:
“While many young Nigerian graduates are roaming the streets in search of white collar jobs, she used her cooking skills learnt from her mother to prepare ekpangnkukwo, 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 younger 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 ekpangnkukwo 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, Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has appreciated her efforts and donated N1m as a financial empowerment to her. The young millionaire is my Facebook friend, Miss Blessing Emah, a student of the University of Uyo.

God bless both of you. You really did well, Governor. Others giving to people like footballers to score goals should learn from you.
