Our Respectable Personality

Below are some of our well respectable people from our village that have in one way or the other helped in supporting and elevating our people in recent times.


Mr. James Iniama, the philanthropist, who has taken it upon himself to make a tremendous impact on the lives of others who really desire help, is an indigene of Ikot Ayan Itam.

A 1980 graduate of Estate Management from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and a fellow of the Nigerian Institute of Estate Surveyor and Valuers.

He is the Chief consultant of James Iniama Consult, foremost surveying, and valuation firm, became a household name in 2007 when he contested the governorship seat in Akwa Ibom State under the defunct Action Congress (AC) which metamorphosed into the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) but now pitches his tent in the Peoples Democratic Party.

Mr. James Iniama’s passion for service has remained a driving force in his quest for leadership. During the outbreak of the dreaded pandemic, every household in Ikot Ayan Itam was given an undisclosed amount of money to cushion the effect of the pandemic. Restaurant operators, barbers, tailors, carpenters, and other artisans received startup capital while others were empowered with relevant tools and equipment to enhance their trade.

He is a widely traveled businessman, married, and blessed with amazing children.
