Aftermath of Akpabio’s visit, APC in Essien Udim goes into jeopardy
By Comr. Umani Uwemedimo
In the resignation letters released, they’ve stated clearly that the party APC is a forum that is modelled with propaganda, impunity, undemocratic activism, thuggery and threats to peaceful, coordinated and ethical political activism, hence their decision to drift into the PDP.
Speaking on behalf of the decampees, the chairman of the party in that area, Pastor Keyeobong Edet in his statement said 2019 elections is not about the individuals concerned, but it’s all about the State, Akwa Ibom.
” What others are trying to do is give us millions, give us cars and also build for the present-day consumption without hope for the future, but Gov. Udom Emmanuel is building for the future, and he’s giving us hope of a better Akwa Ibom tomorrow. He’s building a structure that even the generations unborn Will benefit from. This is the reason I and my colleagues has chosen to defect to PDP. We want to be part of this historic moments”.
Before now, not fewer than 40,000 decampees were welcomed back to the PDP by the State Commissioner for Commerce and industry, Barr. Prince Ukpong Akpabio yesterday, 6th November, 2018.
Prince Ukpong Akpabio in his statement reminded the people of Essien Udim the agreement they had when Chief Akpabio brought Udom Emmanuel to them in 2015.
” It was Chief Akpabio who brought Udom Emmanuel to us, he told us that Udom Emmanuel was a marketable product so we should support him for 8years, today, I came to remind us of this agreement”, he landed.
With the current unfolding of activities in this Local government, it can be clearly seen that APC in Essien Udim is in the State of jeopardy and soon, may go into extinction.
