A group, Udom Frontiers, has rallied a great deal of support for the second term bid of the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emanuel.
In a statement by the national coordinator, Ambassador Ime Victor and the national publicity and media secretary, Prophet Abundance Effiong, the group said the people of Akwa Ibom state are not ignorant of the governor’s socio-economic achievements.
“On the economic front, the governor is steadily and steadfastly focused on job creation and the industrialization of the state. The Dakkada Revolution is indeed a revolution every Akwa lbomite must buy into. We cannot fail to mention the Akwa Ibom Employment and Enterprise Scheme (AKEES).
“The social ambience of Akwa Ibom has witnessed a drastic change. The indigenes have never experienced the liberty that they are enjoying today. There is so much freedom as though the people were in bondage in the days gone by
“This, we dare say, could never have been achieved by any other leader than Governor Emmanuel. We are not playing to the gallery, but truth be told, even the visually impaired, though they can’t see, yet they can feel the social liberty now in our Land of Promise.
“This is the first time the people of Akwa Ibom have voted in a true leader that will lead them to the desired Land of promise. A…true democrat, technocrat, people’s leader, well-focused, social mixer, visionary, prudent fiscal manager and above all, a cool headed leader who refuses to be distracted from his primary assignment even in the midst of high level of distractions as currently prevalent in the state,” said the group.
On the strength of the governor’s achievements in his first term, the group said “we are fully persuaded that if given the opportunity to serve for another four years, Governor Emmanuel will take Akwa Ibom State to the desired Land of Promise.”
