Press Releaseudom emma
With the conclusion of collation and announcement of the results from all the local government areas in Akwa Ibom state, the end of the electoral processes has been attained. The results as announced are a clear reflection of the wishes and desires of our people. The people spoke loudly, unrelentingly reposing their confidence in our Party and electing the Governor and other candidates of our party to the national and state legislatures.
As a party, we are extremely humbled by the eloquent show of confidence in our party and the exhibition of such in the quantum of votes bequeathed to us. These votes were not ordinary votes, there were votes of sacrifice and votes of commitment, which we cannot take for granted. We dedicate this victory to God Almighty who took us to the elections and brought us back victorious, to Him alone be all the glory forever.
We congratulate all the Candidates of our party who came out successful at the just concluded polls. We charge them to work assiduously to justify the confidence reposed on them. The people must never regret this huge confidence, which has come at a great cost.
We plead with our party loyalists to be humble and magnanimous in victory . We must take care to ensure that we celebrate responsibly, conscious that this four year extension for our Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel is the best fillip for Project Akwa Ibom. We must focus on this project, without any distraction.
We are deeply thankful to all our ward, chapter and state officers, agents and supporters who braved the odds and stood by us. We can assure that this renewed term will continually witness the delivery of democracy dividends in varied sectors of the economy.
This victory is sweet and it’s historic impact will last for a very long time.
