“It is a very solid fact that PDP will win any time, any day in Akwa Ibom’’
This was the way the PDP Uyo senatorial district chairman Hon Imo Udo started his speech while addressing some members of the press last week during Uyo Urban Ward 2 sensitization parley in preparation for the ongoing voter’s card registration done across all the polling units in the state.
Hon Udo said that all the villages that made up the political wards in Uyo and other local government areas were gathered and informed according to the PDP tradition of doing things well “while the other parties were no where to be found ‘’. According to Mr Udoh, “such parties are only seen in the plaza, if you go to plaza that is where you see the other party gossiping and manufacturing lies to entertain the people’’.
He said politics is normal because “if there is no faction the game cannot be normal since politics is a game of interest it is the ability to resolve issues in the faction that makes leadership what it is leadership”, adding that PDP has the capacity to resolve issues in it factions.
He said, ‘’am not aware of opposition in Akwa Ibom State, mention the leaders in APC, I don’t know any of them except those pockets of disgruntled members who were once with us in PDP and they don’t have the pedigree to win elections even in their units. Politics is winning election; like in my village, I don’t have anybody that wins election except PDP ‘’.
Mr Imo added that ward two was in support of PDP right from inception. He wondered if any other party can win election in Ward two when those who have been winning elections in Ward two were present at the sensitization gathering.
He commended the leadership of Deacon Udom Emmanuel for his land marked achievements in the state and noted that Udom was directed by God and must stay in office beyond 2019 for completion of 8years as others did. He said anything other than Udom’s 8 years would amount to injustice, lack of equity and fair play. He called on the people to continue to support the governor beyond 2019.
Also speaking at the sensitization parley was the Secretary Uyo, local government council, Barr Stella Udoh who noted that PDP was a party to beat, considering its relevance and performance in the state.
She said that the re-election of Gov. Udom Emmanuel was not negotiable calling on the people of the ward to continue to support the governor by going out to get their voter’s card.
