The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Governor of Akwa-Ibom, Mr Udom Emmanuel, to continue with his milestone achievements as the state celebrates its 29th anniversary.
The party’s message was issued by its Head of Publicity Division (Administration), Chinwe Nnorom, in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.
Nnorom said PDP under the Chairmanship of Alhaji Ahmed Makarfi, congratulated the governor and the people of Akwa-Ibom on the occasion of the 29th Anniversary of the state.
Akwa Ibom was created on Sept. 23, 1987, by the military government of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida.
The state was carved out from the old Cross River.
Nnorom said: “On this joyous occasion, the party wishes to felicitate with the governor and the good people of the state for their togetherness in the last 29 years.
“Akwa-Ibom is home of the PDP and the party has improved the fortune of the state since the inception of the Fourth Republic in 1999.
“The PDP therefore urges Gov. Emmanuel to continue in his milestone achievements in infrastructural development and good policies to deepen the success of past PDP administrations,” she said.
Nnorom recalled that the state government marked the first anniversary of its ‘Dakkada Philosophy’.
” Dakkada Philosophy’ is a clarion call to mental re-awakening, a campaign for spiritual re-birth, moral transformation and attitudinal re-orientation.
“It is to enable the people of the state further re-discover their innate abilities for attaining greater heights,” she said.
Nnorom said the party commended all persons and institutions that had worked “tirelessly” to make the state anniversary celebrations a success.
She named Mrs Martha Udom Emmanuel, the Wife of the governor, among such personalities and commended her for standing with her husband and the state chapter of PDP in the development of the state. (NAN)
