The people of Nsit- Ubium and Eket Local  Government Areas in Akwa Ibom have been called upon to vote President Goodluck Jonathan for second term and Mr. Udom Emmanuel as the next governor of the state under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Godswill Akpabio, who made the call Saturday at the first state PDP campaign rally held at the Nsit-Ubium secretariat grounds and later at the Eket Stadium, remarked, “I call on the people of Nsit-Ubium and Eket local government areas to come out en-mass to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan for second term in the upcoming elections, so that he can continue in his good works for the country. And I believe that with the emergence of the president for second term, the insurgency we are facing now in the country would definitely come to end”.

Akpabio noted “I am impressed with the turn-out of the crowd today to support our very own, Mr. Udom Emmanuel. I must say  I am very impressed at the massive crowd in Eket and especially in Nsit-Ubium in spite of what rumor mongers in local tabloids said that Nsit-Ubium has defected to another political party. So, today I call on you all to support and vote for Mr. Udom Emmanuel as the next governor of the state under the platform of the PDP”.

“Mr. Udom Emmanuel will complete the remaining projects on ground because his administration as the next governor of the state would be based on sustainable development.  So, I give my word that he will keep his promise by carrying the women, youths and the entire people of the local government areas along. I must use this opportunity to thank the people of Nsit-Ubium people for supporting justice that the next governorship seat should be zoned to Eket senatorial district”, he said.

The Governor then called on the people to obtain their voters card and turn out en-mass to vote for PDP in the upcoming elections.
