Spread this gist>>>

The Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom State, Obong Nsima Ekere, executed 11 projects in Abak Local Government Area during his tenure as Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) in the last two years.

A former Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Uwem Udoma, disclosed this on Saturday during the APC campaign rally in Abak.

Udoma, who served as Ekere’s Special Assistant on Political Affairs, listed the projects to include the huge Gully erosion control at Hospital Road, the construction of the 1.2 kilometre Obot Street – Esteem School Road and the renovation of three primary schools, all of which were completed.

He enumerated the other projects as ongoing construction of 4.4 kilometre Atai Otoro – Ikot Oku Mfang – Uruk Uso Road, 2.1 kilometre Ekperikpe Ekpo Avenue and environs and internal roads in Oku Abak.

Udoma said that with all what Ekere had done for Abak, the people owed him a debt which they will repay on March 3, 2019.

Nigeria’s Ambassador to The Holy See, Rome, Major General Godwin Umo (retd), reasoned that if Ekere could do all that for Abak when he was not yet a Governor, he would do more for Abak when he enters the Hilltop Mansion on May 29, 2019.

The APC Leader in Abak, Barr. Joe Ukpong, described the rally as homecoming for Ekere but urged APC members to be vigilant against PDP’s antics on election days.

The Abak APC Caucus Chairman, Barr. Imoh Imoh, called Ekere a friend of Abak who came to the rescue of the people especially over the collapsed Hospital Road which, according to him, Governor Udom Emmanuel heartlessly refused to fix and unsuccessfully tried to prevent NDDC from doing so.

A former State Woman Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Princess Victoria Mel, who spoke on behalf of Abak women, said Ekere’s record of achievements in Abak would speak for him on election day.

A former Chairman of Abak Local Government, Dr. Emmanuel Udosen, who spoke on behalf of Abak youths, said the youths were clear and unambiguous in their support for Ekere.

The widow of Dr. Ime Umanah, the late philanthropist and politician, Mrs. Nene Umanah, thanked Ekere for not forgetting the family of the late APC leader.

In his response, Ekere recalled with delight that it was at the same venue that the elders of Abak 5 (the five local government areas of former Abak Division) received him and asked to resign from the NDDC and run for the governorship position of Akwa Ibom State in June, last year.

On his record of achievements in Abak, he said, “If I could do that for you as Managing Director of NDDC, you can imagine what I will do for you when I become Governor.”

The Senator representing Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Distinguished Sen Godswill Obot Akpabio, described Ekere as a man of honour, assuring Abak people that “under Obong Nsima Ekere as Governor, their problems shall be over.”

He stated that the PDP died the day he left for the APC, querying, “Who was PDP, is it not Godswill Akpabio?”

Stating further, Akpabio, said, “APC will win Akwa Ibom State flat and hands down. Nobody in PDP can come and rig us out in APC. We are going to have free and fair elections in Akwa Ibom.”

The APC State Caucus Chairman, Atuekong Don Etiebet, said Ekere’s election as Governor of Akwa Ibom State had already been ordained by God, adding that “what we are doing now is pre-celebration.”

He accused the PDP of moving the same hired supporters from one local government area to the other for its rallies.

The Managing Director of Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority (OGFZA), Mr. Umana Umana said Governor Emmanuel has failed because he lacked the capacity to govern.

“That is why all the leaders of APC have come together to support Obong Nsima Ekere. Our great and distinguished brother, who has shown what he can do in the NDDC, is going to be Governor. Things will be good in Akwa Ibom again. God has brought our brother, the only one God has brought now to restore God’s glory.”

The Director General of the APC Campaign Council, Senator Ita Enang, said Governor Emmanuel had turned himself into the APC campaign manager through his failures in government.

He announced that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved that the Abak – Ekparakwa – Ete Road be reconstructed as a dual carriageway, with the NDDC providing the design, instead of the single lane road earlier planned by the Federal Government.

The Deputy Adviser of the APC Campaign Council, Senator John Udoedehe, declared that all the key political players in Akwa Ibom State were behind Ekere and “we are coming to celebrate the incoming Governor.”

The highpoint of the rally was the defection of a former Member of the State House of Assembly and retired Director in the State Ministry of Works, Engr. Mfon Abia, with his supporters from the PDP to the APC.
