Udobong Ekpo meets Ekong Sampson, backs Senate bid


By Samuel Udoma

A former Member of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Udobong Ekpo earlier today met with the frontline aspirant for Eket Senatorial District Senate race, Rt Hon.(Barr.) Ekong Sampson. Expectedly, the duo discussed the Senate race in Eket Senatorial District, which by popular opinion favours Mkpat Enin Local Government Area. Dr Ekong Sampson and Hon. Udobong Ekpo have maintained warm relationship over the years. Sampson took over from Ekpo in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly in 2007.

At the parley, Hon. Udobong Ekpo expressed satisfaction with the support that Barr. Sampson is receiving in Mkpat Enin and indeed, the entire Eket Senatorial District for the Senate race. He assured Onomkpoinam Mkpat Enin of his support.

Meanwhile, a former Chief Medical Director of the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Prof. Etete Peters has said that Barr. Sampson is a broadminded and mature politician, who will take high intellectual content to the Senate Chambers. Prof. Peters is a core supporter of Ekong Sampson for the Senate race. He led some of the Campaigns when Sampson went around the Senatorial District consulting.

Reviewing the journey so far, Prof. Peters thanked Mkpat Enin people and supporters in Eket Senatorial District for the strong support base given to Onomkpoinam Mkpat Enin.
He said that Mkpat Enin love and trust Barr. Ekong Sampson because of his accessibility, high intellect and commitment to community service. Prof. Etete said that Mkpat Enin clearly deserves the Senate seat by rotation and that Ekong Sampson is a natural choice because of his vast legislative experience and well known intellectual capacity.

Meanwhile, Barr. Ekong Sampson is continuing with his consultations and interactions ahead of the PDP Senate primaries next month.
