A’Ibom guber: Why Ekere will lose to Gov Emmanuel – APC Chieftain



Tribunal grants APC order of substituted service on Gov. Emmanuel

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress Akwa Ibom, Eniefiok Ekefere, have given reasons why the party’s governorship candidate Obong Nsima Ekere will lose to incumbent Governor Udom Emmanuel, in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

Ekefere a caucus member of the APC made the prediction during a media interaction with journalists yesterday in Uyo.

He said that the relative peace provided by the Enmmanuel’s administration in the past three and half years would guarantee his second term victory adding that the people would not lose sight of it in deciding who they would vote for.

He recalled that the period of insecurity in the state when Senator Godswill Akpabio was governor and the current governorship candidate of the APC, Obong Nsima Ekere was as deputy when people were being killed and kidnapped even in churches.

He said they made life unbearable and uncomfortable which eventually retarded development and progress of Akwa Ibom people.

“I am a political activist and caucus member of the APC, but for the forth coming governorship election in the state I support governor Udom Emmanuel’s re-election because my party threw up the wrong candidate.

“I am still in APC. I am not with Udom as a person but for the public interest of my state. Interest comes first, party politics comes next. I am a free citizen and the constitution provides for freedom of assembly and association.

“The basic needs of the people of the state are security. When the present politicians seeking elective positions in the state were in power under the PDP there were cases of kidnappings and assassinations.

“The same people who ensured that there was no peace in Akwa Ibom state have now moved to govern the state. Before Udom administration the churches were usually empty because serious insecurity.

“Udom has given us nothing but peace. All the characters in my party APC were part and parcel of the days of anarchy in Akwa Ibom state.

“In the past people don’t go church in the state because of cases of kidnappings. Major General Edet Akpan was kidnapped in the church. Paul Inyang South South leader of the PDP was also kidnapped in the church and many more.

“Prosperity without peace is no prosperity. Our people now move freely and sleep in their homes with their eyes closed. You don’t hear so much of killings, kidnappings and threat to lives,” Ekefere explained.
