2015: Eket Senatorial District Stakeholders Re-Assure Udom Emmanuel of Massive Support
Elders and Leaders from Eket Senatorial District of Akwa Ibom State have risen from a stakeholders' meeting in Eket to re-iterate their unflinching support and solidarity to the candidature of their son and PDP Governorship Candidate Mr. Udom Emmanuel ahead of next Saturday's Governorship elections.
The elders who cut across all the 12 local government areas of the three federal constituencies in the district noted that despite the outcome of the last elections, Akwa Ibom people should hold their heads high for their near 100 percent support for the PDP which saw the party emerging victorious in all the national assembly seats in the State.
The Chairman of the Occasion and former Minister of Lands and Housing Chief Nduese Essien said the senatorial district will not joke with the opportunity that has come its way after 25 endless years of waiting, and will leave no stone unturned in acquiring massive votes for the PDP in the governorship and house of assembly elections.
“Just as the Northerners embarked on aggressive mobilization just to reclaim power, we are also not leaving anything to chance as we will make sure everyone comes out and votes for our son Udom and other PDP candidates come April 11 because this is our God-given turn,” he said.
Also speaking, the State Deputy Governor Lady Valerie Ebe commended the Eket Senatorial District stakeholders for their unity and cooperation, adding that such bonding which saw to the success of the party in the senatorial district during the recent national assembly election, will translate to another round of victory for the party in the state on April 11.
Speaking for Eket Federal Constituency, Gen Anthony Etukudo(rtd) said his people had always supported PDP governorship candidates from other Senatorial Districts of the State since inception and will vote overwhelmingly for Mr Emmanuel, who happened to be their son and brother.
Others who spoke included Barr Jerry Akpan a former Commissioner for Economic Development, who spoke for Ikot Abasi Federal Constituency, Barr Peter Linus Umoh a former Speaker of the State House of Assembly who spoke for Oron Federal Constituency, Mr Friday Uduyok the House of Representatives Member Elect for Ikot Abasi Federal Constituency, the District's Senator-elect, Chief Nelson Effiong as well as the Minister of Lands and Housing Mrs Akon Eyakenyi.
They all maintained that Udom Emmanuel's experience and his antecedence in the private and public sector, coupled with a perfect blueprint, had created in him a perfect brand that was going to make Akwa Ibom an enviable economic hub in the Africa.
An elated Udom Emmanuel who thanked the stakeholders for their support, promised that he would never disappoint the state when elected.
He also sued for peace among the electorate during and after the elections.
