Meet the new AKISAN USA National Executives

Having distrust amongst your brethren could be as disheartening as any vocabulary can describe. Not feeling loved and appreciated for all your salient sacrifices could be as frustrating as finding a needle in a haystack.

Obituary (Posted: September 13, 2016)
Obituary: Dr. Imeh Uyoe of AKISAN Atlanta
It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my father, Dr. Imeh William Uyoe, of Ikot Iyan in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government area of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. Dr. Uyoe was a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, where was a respected member of both the US and Nigerian community respectively.

Dr. Uyoe was survived by his wife, Ms. Cornelia Uyoe, sons Idorenyin and Aniefiok Uyoe, daughters Ofonmbuk Uyoe and Gloria Udoh, grandchildren Edidiong Emah, Justin Solomon and Jayla Solomon. He is further survived by nieces, nephews and the broader Akwa Ibom Community in Atlanta Georgia, whom my father considered very much a part of his family.

The family appreciates the tremendous outpouring of support, warmth and love shown expressed by friends and the broader community during this very difficult time. Thank you.
