 Chief Okpo who is also a community leader in Offi Ward II,  used the forum to thank Governor Godswill Obot Akpabio for ceding the governorship slot to Eket senatorial district in the spirit of fair play, justice and equity, and for providing a detribalized successor in Udom Emmanuel to consolidate on his uncommon transformation.

In her response, the Okobo LGA chairman and Okobo State constituency hopeful, who was visibly overwhelmed with joy over the show of support and solidarity, immensely thanked all the relevant stakeholders in Okobo for throwing their weight behind her aspiration and other PDP candidates, and assured that the PDP-led government would certainly turn around the economic fortunes of Okobo people through execution of life-touching projects.
