P.D.P remains intact in Gov. Udom’s ward - Nkereuwen Joe

P.D.P remains intact in Gov. Udom’s ward - Nkereuwen Joe

The purported defection of some P.D.P members to the A.P.C in Governor Udom’s Awa ward 1 has been debunked and described as a fallacious propaganda taken too far to score cheap political points.

A P.D.P Chieftain and President Coalition of Onna Youths Movement (COYM), Mr. Nkereuwen Monday Joe made the declaration to newsmen in Onna on Saturday during an emergency meeting of the group against the backdrop of report in a Local tabloid that “A.P.C takes over Udom’s Village”.

The youths President said “there is nothing like A.P.C in Onna, less to talk of the party taking over Governor Emmanuel Udom’s Village”.

He condemned in strong terms the media report which he said was sponsored by a few disgruntled individuals in the Peoples Democratic Party who have refused to be patient with the present administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel.

“Those reported to have decamped to the All Progressive Congress which includes Kinsley Ufang and Valentine Ufang are still members of the Peoples Democratic Party”, he said.

“I wonder why some people can go such far to tell lies because of mundane pecuniary reasons to score cheap political points against a performing Governor”, Mr. Joe said.

He said further that no right thinking son of Onna will want Governor Udom to sit for a single term when his predecessors completed their constitutional two terms.

Mr. Joe called on journalist in the State to engage in developmental journalism instead of engaging in partisan politics of retrogression, while calling on all members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the State to debunk the said news and remain loyal to the party.

“No amount of propaganda can stop the P.D.P and Governor Udom in 2019 to retain the hill top mansion and consolidate on the visible achievement of the Government even with paucity of funds accruable to the State”, the youth leader averred.

He commended the State governor for his empowerment programe to youths and women across the State and called on all the appointees of the Governor to touch the lives of their constituents positively as a measure of reciprocating the trust of the Governor on them.

Mr. Joe commended the effort of the member representing Onna State constituency in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Hon Nse Essien for placing 82 youths of Onna on monthly stipends of ten thousand naira each.

Appointees of the Governor from Onna who have curried the favour of youths of the area includes, Edmond Uffang, Protocol Officer to the Governor, Mr. John Akpan, Dr. Elijah Udom, Chairman of Akipoc, Harryson Ekpo, Barr. Ubong Adiakpan and Mr. Godwin Ben aka Black, he said.
