Aniebiet Umo symbolizes a concurrent growth of wisdom with massacre experience on how to lead the people, particularly at the grassroots level.
There is no doubt or space for argument that Abak LGA is thirsty for a fruitful and mass productive leadership in the council. A human interest leadership kind of that will satisfy the dream of every Abak sons and daughters, enhance versatile initiatives for youth empowerment programs, and unreserved compliments. Luckily for Abak people aside from the recent trending of not too young to run initiative, Comrade Aniebiet Umo is here to render the best local government administration with a motley of performance in line with the industrialization policy of the current administration in the state under watch of Deacon Udom Emmanuel.

There is no gainsaying the fact that Comrade Aniebiet Umo the MD of shines fashion and styles has special grace that comes with many endowments considering his various activities at the grassroots to motivate the people on the Dakkada policy of Governor Udom Emmanuel.
His presence anywhere invites an “Open Sesame”, the proverbial folklore that highlighted the famed possibilities that sequel the activities of the protagonist of that story. Aniebiet’s political activities and trajectory follow that same vein, leveraging him to achieve tasks that previously looked impossible.
The world is no doubt an organized structure. It is the height of absurdity to think that the power which planned this world, planned it ill or haphazardly. God created man and imbued him with different talents. According to a popular internet dictionary, Merriam Webster, talents are the various gifts God has given us for our use.
The dictionary extends the definition to include all gifts; natural, spiritual, and material. It notes that it embraces natural abilities and resources- health, education as well as possessions- money and opportunities.
From the foregoing, it is apparent that these gifts vary and they come naturally to persons without bargain or liberty of choice.
It is why the Scripture in Roman 12: 6-8 avers thus:
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to meet the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully”.
There is an interesting intersection in the concept of talent and its identification. When one identifies his talent, the purpose flows naturally and unhindered. The purpose tends to be buoyed by grace as seemingly impossible things become possible.
The forces of providence always appear to coalesce in favor of the man who has identified his talent and evolves a compatible purpose for it. It is why two people can do the same thing but achieve different levels of success or put differently, one records success while the other posts failure as result.
Comrade Aniebiet Umo a graduate of business administration is an eloquent example of a man who is treading the course of his talent. His life has been that of leadership foretold.
From secondary school through polytechnic to date, he has always held leadership positions and made the best out of them. And his times have always been in good seasons, signifying the support of providence. He complements that with his passion for service and desire for enduring legacies.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson noted, the world makes way for the man who knows where he is going.
