PDP guber candidate says, this flag does not belong to me  … Dedicates Victory to Akwa Ibom people
The Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Udom Emmanuel  has further engraved his name in the hearts of Akwa Ibom people by surrendering his victory to the people.

Mr Emmanuel said the flag he brought home was a sign of victory not only for him and the PDP but the entire Akwa Ibom State. He said he was stunned by the show of love and solidarity by the people who defied the biting cold of the harmmattan to congregate at the airport to receive him.

“This flag I am holding does not belong to me, it belongs to Akwa Ibom People, I am holding it in trust for you, anytime you see me you are free to ask for what I am doing with your mandate,” Udom enthused.
The PDP flag-bearer noted that the flag symbolized the unbreakable unity of the State despite all challenges, noting that the oneness of the state was captured by the fact that he came back with just one flag.

According to the Governorship hopeful his emergence as the standard bearer signaled an era of greatness of the State where the youths will continue to occupy the front-burner in the scheme of things in the state. 

According to him, the flag also stands for accountability, abundance of food and infrastructural development.

The State PDP Chairman, Obong Paul Ekpo while presenting the Guber hopeful to the jubilant crowd, noted that the flagbearer has come as a signpost of unity and hope for the people, and enjoined all to continue to support the party to deliver its candidates at all the elections.

He congratulated the national leadership of the party on the kickoff of its campaign in Lagos, and congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Godswill Akpabio for their goodwork that has made the PDP the party to beat at the federal and State levels.

The airport reception for Mr. Udom Emmanuel and his running mate, Obong Moses Ekpo was massively attended by party faithful including party elders, commissioners, legislators and other political office holders.
Thereafter, the train moved to Government House Uyo, where the flag was presented before Governor Godswill Akpabio and other political bigwigs in a colourful ceremony.
