Ekid Idediong o! Congratulations to Mr. Chris Oduok on being re-elected as the new National President of Eket Development Congress USA, Inc.

Ekid Idediong o! On behalf of Eket Development Congress (E.D.C.), USA, I would like to welcome you to our website. We have now established our web presence. This website is set up to promote our organization. You can now donate online, peruse our numerous photos and videos, register for our conventions and find out about our organization, to mention but a few.

Eket Development Congress, USA is a 501 (c) organization set up to cater to Eket citizens both in the USA and in Nigeria. Eket is a major city in the Niger Delta Region as it plays host to some of the major oil companies operating in the Nigerian territory. Eket Local Government occupies the South Central portion of Akwa Ibom State. It is blessed with a rich and enviable cultural heritage. "Ekid," the language spoken by Eket Local Government Area conveys a unique culture and identity to the people. Eket's population, as of the 2006 census, stands at 172,557.

The weekend of 23-24th May was a special one for Eket sons, daughters and their friends in US and Nigeria. We discussed issues that affect our communities both in Eket and in the US. We socialized and met old friends and made new ones.

Prof. Richard King was a Special Guest Speaker but couldn't make it to the event due to death in the family. The keynote speaker was distinguished Senator Etang Umoyo. Among the dignitaries present at this year's convention were Chief Usua Amanam, former speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr. Bassey Essien, Gubernatorial Aspirant Dr. Samuel Udonsak.

Perharps, some of the highlight events at this convention was the Youth Seminar, that sought to involve our youth by celebrating their achievements and offering them a platform to speak with one another.

Dr. Ekwo, a veteran educator and volunteer spoke to youth about community service and the spirit of volunteering as vehicles to build a strong society.

Usua Amanam Jr. A 2013 Rose Bowl Stanford's Defensive Player of the game and 1st year master degree student at Stanford University gave a powerful keynote speech about the importance of education in a paper titled: "Why Education?"Вќ He stated, "There's a low probability that an NFL career is going to happen for most college football players," he said. "That's the reason I chose Stanford. If the football route doesn't work out, I'll have a Stanford degree to fall back on. Well, he did not wait for football dream to workout, he opted to go for a masters degree in Energy Resources Engineering. EDC hopes to build up on the youth participation in future conventions.
