Mr Paulo Akaiso, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP chieftain in Akwa Ibom state, has stressed that Governor Udom Emmanuel’s emergence as governor was divinely arranged and not by Senator Godswill Akpabio former governor of the state.
Akaiso said this while faulting claims by Akpabio that he single-handedly made Mr. Udom Emmanuel the Governor in 2015.
In a press statement made available to journalists in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, Akaiso said Akpabio brought Udom by divine arrangement as the most qualified governor and by truth Udom defeated other contenders to cling the governorship position of the state.
While refuting that Udom has been a stooge, the PDP chieftain said that Udom’s emergence as governor has brought peace and development to all facets of the economy and that Akwa Ibom people are out to re-elect him for another term.
“There is nowhere Udom Emmanuel will not come out successful in the coming polls, because he has proven himself right in many facets, He has also proven that he is not a sectional governor, he has touched all parts of the state in his development program,” he said.
He specifically commended the Peoples Democratic Party-led government in the area of security stressing that the era of kidnapping where hoodlums entered into churches premises to kidnap and kill Akwa Ibom sons and daughters has stopped.
“Let me tell you that Udom Emmanuel administration has recorded great feat in the area of security comparing the state between 2011/2015, where kidnappers entered churches kidnapped and killed Akwa Ibom sons and daughters without molestation,” the PDP chieftain said.
