The Peoples Democratic Party in Ubium South has rejected SA to the Governor on Petroleum matters, Mr. Essien Esema as the political leader of the region saying the former council chairman lacks the basic capacities to be made the political leader.

The PDP argued also that if Essien Esema should be made the political leader of the area that such should emanate from them and wondered why Obong Inyang Eno the co conspirator of that sham will allow himself to be so used.

In a release signed by the Nsit Ubium Chapter Chairman of the PDP Aniefiok U. Johnny and twelve others made available to THE INK reporter in Nsit Ubium Monday morning, the party resolved that, "the party's Chapter and Ward Executives condemn and reject the purported selection of Obongunwana Essien Edema as political leader of Ubium, that the PDP Chapter and ward Executives also put on hold the planned recognition of Engr. Nkereuwem Ekanem as Ubium South Political leader, that the Party will meet with political stakeholders in Ubium South to decide on how to bring about the political leadership of the area, that in the meantime, Ubium South remains without a political leader, that the Chapter Chairman of PDP in Nsit Ubium, Elder Aniefiok Johnny, shall handle all political matters relating to Ubium South.

Competent sources told THE INK reporter that Esema had invited some stakeholders to his house to celebrate Easter with them and how he turned around to cockily tell the people that he is now the endorsed political leader of Ubium south leaves much to be desired.

It was gathered that Esema had through an SMS invited stakeholders to his grandfather's house for an Easter treat only for him to turn around and announced himself the political leader of the area.

A sample copy of the text message sent by Esema for the meeting obtained by THE INK reporter reads, On behalf of my family, I wish you a very Happy Easter that is filled with plenty of love and happiness.
** Plese join me in an Easter  merriment  on Saturday morning 31st March 2018. Venue: Esema Compound Eket Oron Rd. Akai Ubium, Nsit Ubium LGA. Happy Easter.
Obongunwana Essien Esema.

Sources say, nothing in Esema's invite indicated there was going to be anything like political leadership endorsement and however wondered why the desperateness by Essien Esema for political leadership.

Essien Esema could not be reached for comments when contacted on the development. But sources close to him says, he will fight back
