As usual, The Akwa Ibom State Governor and governorship candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Udom Emmanuel, has again secured the endorsement of another important community on his second term re-election bid.
This time around, people of Ibesikpo Asutan local government area of the State made their position known and insisted to give the governor their votes come March 2, this year because of his presence there and inclusion of their children in the affairs of the State.
The revelation was revealed when Udom’s campaign organizations came calling on the LG some hours ago.
The people of the area through their leaders noted that, Udom’s administration has so far performed creditably, hence, has given indication of great things to come if he is given another opportunity.
According to these people, Ibesikpo Asutan has been blessed through the citing of key infrastructure in the area and appointment of their sons into sensitive offices in the State.
Chairman of Ibesikpo Asutan local government, Sylvester George noted that, he is confident of the governor’s victory in his LG based on merit and his achievements.
A PDP woman leader, Mrs Ime Orok remarked that, the women of the area had long started campaigning for the governor’s re-election and were confident of victory of Udom’s victory at the poll.
