ARC. NYA-ETOK DISSOCIATES SELF FROM RECENT ENDORSEMENT FOR GOVERNOR UDOM EMMANUEL
Sequel to the recent endorsement in support of Governor Udom Emmanuel by 25 candidates of various political parties for the governorship seat of Akwa Ibom state, I deem it appropriate to issue this press release for the purpose of providing clarity and to make known my stand as regards the governorship election in Akwa Ibom state.
I therefore wish to make the following statements:
1. I categorically state my non-participation in the recent endorsement by 25 governorship candidates in support of Governor Udom Emmanuel’s second term bid. Much as I respect the decision of those governorship candidates to endorse their preferred candidate, I emphatically dissociate myself from the said endorsement for propriety reasons.
2. I hereby reiterate my resolve to contest the governorship seat of Akwa Ibom state to the ballot on the platform of the the Young Democratic Party (YDP). I am resolute and determined to serve the beloved people of Akwa Ibom state as a servant-leader – a desire I intend to actualize by occupying the office of Governor of Akwa Ibom state.
I remain committed to providing qualitative governance and to improve the lives of the generality of Akwa Ibom people through my ‘Social Governance’ political ideology, even as my ideology of ‘Responsibility Transfer’ will seek to groom the young people and give them the mantle of leadership.
