Gov Udom Emmanuel Joins Presidential Race, Picks PDP Form
Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom has picked the presidential nomination forms of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), indicating his desire to contest in the 2023 election.
Naija News reports that the Berekete family had purchased the N40m expression of interest and nomination forms for the governor.
According to the group, the Akwa Ibom governor would change lives and turn the fortunes of Nigeria for good.
Spokesperson of the group, Innocent Orji said: “Today is a new dawn in our country Nigeria because for the very first time in the history of Nigeria, this is the only time a group of people came together and said, change must take place come 2023. The President. Dr. Ahmed Isa and the founder of Brekete family, Radio and television came out to say to the world that change must start come 2023.
“When he (Governor Udom) came to Human Rights Radio and Television for the program Brekete, he came on his own and he presented all he has done. We don’t believe until we see. So we decided to do proper investigation on our own. We travelled to Akwa Ibom and saw everything that he said, and we even discovered that there were many he didn’t mention.
“As a result of that, we are of the opinion that if he could do all these in his own state, he will do even better in Nigeria as a whole. Based on this, we said we are nominating him and we will purchase this form for him.”
