Akwa Ibom gov assures PDP stakeholders of better days ahead
Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel has promised not to take the support he got from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in his re-election for granted.
He stated this during a thank-you meeting with PDP stakeholders at the party’s permanent secretariat in Uyo.
The governor commended women, youths and elders of the party for their steadfastness and support that aided his re-election, assuring that the PDP would continue to garner more strength in the state.
“I thank all of you. Today, I stand here as the man elected through the platform of this great party to re-echo my avowed commitment to the Akwa Ibom project.
“I will channel all my efforts, with your support, to the pursuit and actualisation of the completion agenda. Together, we will make Akwa Ibom the state we will be proud to bequeath our children and generations to come,” he said.
Emmanuel vowed to appreciate, at the appropriate time, the support of the party members during the elections despite threats from the opposition.
He urged them to continue their commitment to the party, stressing that “PDP is like a religion in the state.”
Earlier, the state PDP chairman, Paul Ekpo, had said that the party was satisfied with the governor’s performance and attributed his success to the stakeholders’ commitment to the ideals of the party.
He observed that threats from the opposition before and during the elections did not ruffle the party faithful, instead they stood their grounds, which led to the overwhelming victory at the polls.
He assured the governor of the party’s support to his administration.
At the event were national and state executive members of the party, serving and former national and state lawmakers, ward officers and council chairmen among others.
