2015 Esit Eket/Ibeno State Constituency: Eyo Abia joins race

2015 Esit Eket/Ibeno State Constituency: Eyo Abia joins race
The race for who rep resents the people  of Esit Eket/Ibeno State Constituency in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly from May 2015, has taken a different turn with the endorsement of Hon. Eyo Inyang Abia by a front-line socio political organization in the state known as the Akwa Ibom Joint Leadership Forum.

In a release signed by its National President, Prince Solomon Akpe and Secretary, Obong Nathaniel Ekpenyong, the group said its decision was informed by a painstaking study conducted on all aspirants from Esit Eket/Ibeno Constituency which found Mr. Eyo Abia most qualified amongst all vying for the State House of Assembly.

Eyo Abia’s sterling qualities, experience, magnanimity and patriotism are what have kept him above other contestants, the group said.

The group described Eyo Abia as a grassroot politician who has touched the lives of many people of his area positively in many ways including scholarship to indigent students of Ibeno and Esit Eket studying in tertiary institutions across the country, among other philanthropic gestures.

“Time has gone when the youths of Akwa Ibom State were enticed by money to vote for wrong persons into positions of responsibilities only to regret after. Today the Joint Leadership Forum demands that public service must be strictly on merit”, the group said.

“Eyo Abia has been a leader of the Uquo-Ibeno Local Government Legislature and has worked for over 16 years in the Community Relations Department of Exxon Mobil and has garnered enough experience to inject into the development of the State constituency and Akwa Ibom State at large”, the release stated.

When contacted, Hon. Eyo Abia said his mission was “to add value to community service through the transfer of experience and shaping of human existence through poverty alleviation, capacity improvement and a better society for all”.

He said he does not believe in short term empowerment such as buying of motorcycles for people but in the evaluation and uplift of the human condition which includes manpower development, capital dominance, commence and industry.

Eyo Abia agreed that short term empowerment is good but agued that it does not endure.
“My mission is to transfer my many years of experience in the oil and gas sector into service to my constituents through enabling laws and oversight functions”, he said.
