Do not take the Party to court, says AKHA hopeful

Do not take the Party to court, says AKHA hopeful
While some aspirants for the upcoming party primaries of the People Democratic Party who feel cheated and unequally treated by the leadership of the party consider law court as the only option to fight for justice and their political right, a frontline contender for the 2015 Ikot Abasi/Eastern Obolo State Constituency seat in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Elder (Surv.) Kufre Ufot is of the stance that dragging the party to court over its internal decisions is the least thing a true party faithful can do.

In an interaction with newsmen in Uyo recently, Elder Ufot stressed that no good child can fight his father.

Wondering why some people who called themselves politician could not understand the nitty-gritty of politics, he condemned in strong term the filling of case in court against the Peoples Democratic Party by some members of the party believed to be aspiring for one elective position or the other.
He maintained that party’s decision is always paramount and unarguable as such cannot be challenged, especially when such decision is made through due process.

While expressing confidence on the Akwa Ibom State leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, Elder Ufot said: “I am grateful to God for taking us this far and also to the Peoples Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom State led by the Chairman, Obong Paul Ekpo and the Governor, Chief (Dr.) Godswill Obot Akpabio who is the leader of the Party for ensuring a hinge-free and leveling processes to all aspirant ahead of the party primaries which will come up in less than two weeks. 

“Indeed, it is an indication that the party will also provide a level playing ground for all aspirants without being bias. Personally, I have seen that the party have been fair to all aspirants and if there is any issue at all, I don’t have any fear because I believed that the party can always use all its machinery to resolve whatever issues amicably.

“It is not normal for any member of the party (aspirant or non-aspirant) to sue the party on whenever there is an internal issue because whatever decision the party made at anytime is for the interest of the party, so you can’t say that the party is bias. Any party faithful must abide by the party decisions,” he stated.

Speaking on his aspiration, the aspirant reiterated that he is enjoying massive support from the people of Eastern Obolo and Ikot Abasi as a whole and further said that having gained such support, he is optimistic that come 2015, he will be sworn in as the next member representing Ikot Abasi State  Constituency.

“The people of Eastern Obolo and Ikot Abasi are solidly behind me as far as 2015 state constituency race is concerned. Surprisingly, some of my opponents are currently supporting me having known that constituents of Ikot Abasi and Eastern Obolo have made up their mind in sending me to represent them in the state legislative chambers in 2015. This is what gives me confidence that with people and God by my side, I have nothing to worry about. In fact, I am ready for the party primaries,” he stressed.

He also commended Governor Godswill Akpabio on the recent commissioning of the Ibom International Stadium, describing him as an uncommon leader who does uncommon things in uncommon ways and therefore called on Akwa Ibom people to support him to the very end.
