Since his days as President of the Students Union Government of the University of Uyo, he always sought to bring positive change into his environment.
He was the first Akwa Ibom youth to be elected as Speaker of the Nigeria Youth Parliament in 2008, a capacity in which he had numerous opportunities to give Nigeria excellent representation at various international fora.
I won't mention his brainchild The Onofiok Luke Legislative Internship Programme (TOLLIP) which he started in 2013.
The Onofiok Luke Legislative Internship Programme (TOLLIP), a programme with clear-cut objectives and set of deliverables was designed to train young Nigerians on the rudiments of law-making in line with international best practices, as well as raise an army of young entrepreneurs, social volunteers, peace advocates and conflict managers. Again, Hon. Onofiok Luke is the first to have this kind of vision in part of the globe!
He has achieved numerous feats which I am sure if you Google him up, you will find loads of information handy about the man Hon. (Barr) Onofiok Luke.
He has done again one thing that has caught my attention and that is taking the lead in E-governance by opening up not just a website but a functional platform where he and his constituents can share information.
By the way, what's E-governance? E-governance is simply the 'EFFECTIVE' application of technology in governance!
I attach the word effective because so many lawmakers open up websites that aren't updated in almost their entire 4-year tenure in office plus, you can't even have a reply to your mail in 2 years!
E-Governance is the application of information and communication technology (ICT) for delivering government services, exchange of information communication transactions, integration of various stand-alone systems and services between Government-to-Citizens (G2C), Government-to-Business(G2B),Government-to-Government( G2G) as well as back office processes and interactions within the entire government frame work.
In e-Governance there are no distinct boundaries. Therefore, communication with Hon. Onofiok Luke is NOW OPEN!
Through www.onofiokluke.ng, I believe the evidence of effective representation not only to the people of Nsit Ubium but the entire Nigerian populace will be made available in a convenient, efficient and transparent manner.
On this website, you can learn more about the man called Hon. Onofiok Luke, his project, see his image/video gallery, get official press releases, get text of his speeches and even talk to him one-on-one! Your mails will be replied within 24hours!
Hon. Onofiok Luke comes online, irrespective of his tight schedule, to discuss issues of national concern.
A few days ago, a group of young leaders in Akwa Ibom State had a Twitter conversation with the topic 'After Oil, what next?' and Hon. Onofiok Luke as the guest took time to highlight the phenomenal programmes of the Governor Godswill Akpabio-led administration which has led to the UNCOMMON TRANSFORMATION of Akwa Ibom State!
You can follow proceedings of that discussion with the hash tag #NewAkwaIbom
This is a wake-up call to our leaders to embrace information technology!
E-governance is two-way communication protocol. The essence of E-governance is to reach the beneficiary and ensure that the services intended to reach the desired individual has been met with.
There should be an auto-response to support the essence of E-governance, whereby the Government realizes the efficacy of its governance. E-governance is by the governed, for the governed and of the governed.
To this end, Leadership, clear direction and focus are critical and crucial for the successful implementation of E-government.
The Onofiok Luke I know, is totally committed to e-government initiatives and he has made a bold decision to move with the information age so as to capitalize on abundant opportunities derived there from.
Onofiok Luke has stopped talking! He has taken action! So should you!
