Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel has assured that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is determined to restore Nigeria’s lost glory by easing the current economic woes and insecurity plaguing the nation.

Speaking Tuesday at the flag-off of campaigns and presentation of flags to PDP candidates in Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District, held at the Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area Township Stadium, the Governor lauded the unalloyed support of the people of Ikot Ekpene senatorial district to PDP and their assurances to vote Atiku Abubakar as President, Umo Eno as Governor and all candidates of the party within the Senatorial District.

According to him, with the adverse socio-economic challenges in the past seven and a half years, resulting in high costs of goods and services, with food, petroleum products, and other items now at outrageous costs.

He bemoaned the negligence of the education sector, the high spate of insecurity, and added that Nigerians have realized the comparative disadvantage of trying alternative political front and cannot wait to have PDP back at the centre.

Governor Emmanuel encouraged the people to be steadfast in their support for PDP, asserting that PDP at the centre will protect the interest of the state.

He regretted that despite being at the helm of the NDDC, Akwa Ibom State could not even boast of a kilometer of road

“Thank you for the assurance over Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the next President, thank you for the assurance of Umo Eno as the next Governor.

“Politics is about interest. The party that recognizes our state is PDP. For eight years Akwa Ibom has not been given even one kilometer of road on any platform. If they were not given a chance, they would have still been seen as the would-have-been best government.

“Let me reassure all of you that it is PDP that will bring back the good old times”, Governor Emmanuel said.

The Chairman of PDP in Akwa Ibom State, Elder Aniekan Akpan, said the evident gains of the Udom Emmanuel led government in Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District have not only impressed the people but also served as convincing campaign tools to garner grassroots support for the party.

The gubernatorial candidate of the party in the 2023 elections, Pastor Umo Eno, thanked the people of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District for their warm reception of the party, pledging to further the development of the State as exemplified by Governor Emmanuel.

Pastor Eno promised among other things to boost the economy of the district with an international market and a medical tourism corridor between the State quaternary hospital and the Ikot Ekpene based Four Points by Sheraton Hotel.

In his goodwill message, Senator Alloysious Etok assured that the stakeholders in the district are charged to deliver the candidates of the party in the 2023 elections.
