2019: Federal might will not help you, come home and campaign, Akwa Ibom Speaker tells APC
The Speaker Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Onofiok Luke has advised leaders of the All Progressive Congress in Akwa Ibom State to stop using federal might to intimidate members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the State.
Speaker Luke disclosed this while speaking with newsmen in Uyo immediately after Tuesday’s plenary.
According to him, using apparatus of the government to intimidate members of the PDP in the State will only make their support for Governor Udom Emmanuel stronger.
He urged them to stop believing that they would use Federal might to intimidate PDP leaders in the State to succumb and advised them to come back to Akwa, Ibom State campaign and test their popularity.
“If members of the Akwa Ibom APC think they are popular, they should stop using the state apparatus and security agencies to intimidate us,” he noted.
“The more they try to intimidate us, the more our resolve to defend the common mandate of Governor Udom Emmanuel.
“And I am also telling them that, if they are popular; they should come back home and campaign, and not behave like children who would go and start a fight and then run to their father for protection”
