A group known as Ibom Mega Alliance has endorsed the second term ambition of Governor Udom Emmanuel ahead of the 2019 general elections in the country. The group made the endorsement in a communique issued at the end of a round table discourse it organised in Uyo on Tuesday.
According to the release, the round table discourse which is a quarterly intellectual activity of the group to create awareness about Governor Emmanuel’s programmes, featured a lecture with the theme: “Leadership and Socio-economic Development: The Udom Emmanuel Example in Akwa Ibom State.” The lecture was delivered by the Dean of Agriculture, University of Uyo, Prof Nyaudo Ndaeyo.
The communique read in part; “after a thorough in-depth assessment of Governor Udom Emmanuel’s performance under two years, the discussion and members of Ibom Mega Alliance unanimously resolved that: (1) Governor Udom Emmanuel has within two years performed exceptionally well. (2) We have no doubt that the performance shall quadrupled in the remaining two years. And (3) Governor Udom should seek a second term in office to continue with his performance and provide good and qualitative leadership to the people of Akwa Ibom state beyond 2019.”
The communique was signed by the President and Secretary-General of the group, Chief Marcus Okuku and Hon. Emmanuel Enang, respectively.
Others who co-signed the communique are Dr. Eventus Edem, chairman of the Round Table planning committee; Dr. Charles Mbong, director of programmes and Dr. Enefiok Edem, chairman of communique drafting committee.
