Gov Udom is fully committed to bringing A’Ibom into one family - Ekong Sampson

Special Adviser on Political, Legislative Affairs and Water Resources, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Ekong Sampson has noted that the trend of unity currently experienced the Akwa Ibom polity is an indication of GovernorUdom Emmanuel’s effort to collapse all variant structures in the State into one fabric, hence forming a one united Akwa Ibom.

Barrister Ekong Sampson, made the observation while speaking on a live radio programme on Planet FM, said. Taking a clue from the fact that great sons of Akwa Ibom defied political lines to converge in Onnarecently at the funeral of the late Paramount Ruler, HRM Akpabio Udo Ukpa,he said what is playing out in Akwa Ibom today is a testimony of good workand anindication that the State is making progress.

Barrister Sampsonlikenedthe Late Ukpato Okadigbo and other reputableNigerians who, in their lifetime as statesmen, were known for depth and range. He therefore thanked the great Akwa Ibomites for the honour done to him.

Refuting the negative notions held by some disparagers about the State,Ekong Sampson saidthat Akwa Ibom has no basis or justification to be fractured or disunited in the first place.In his position, “I don’t buy into that despondency that it is too bad here or that there is no hope”, he said, further explaining that “what we needed was great leadership which we now have in the person of Governor Udom Emmanuel”.

The Special Adviser stressed that Akwa Ibom people cannot afford to work at cross-purposes and sacrifice the progress of the State. He extolledGovernorUdom Emmanuel’scommitment to bringing Akwa Ibom into one family to work together as a team and as a great people.

He reiterated the good gesture of His Excellency in exhibiting full commitment to collapsing the State into one fabric to create a new Akwa Ibom.He said his Bureau was working hard to complement State Government efforts in uniting the State. Barrister Ekong Sampson also called on all Akwa Ibom people to embrace the ongoing National Identity Card project as well as the imminent Continuous Voter’s Registration in their own individual interest and the interest of the State.
