Kinsmen of former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, have thrown their weight behind the second term bid of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
The people of Annang nation, the ancestral home of Akpabio, who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress, said they would support the governor for second term in the interest of equity and fairness.
The Itai Afe Annang (IV), Okuku Dr. Pius Esideh, made this position known on behalf of Annang people at the enlarged Central Working Committee meeting at the Independence Hall Abak.
The monarch described Emmanuel as a leader who touched the lives of citizens of the state in many aspects including embarking on industrialisation drive, which he said would create employment opportunities for unemployed youths.
He stated, “We realised that equality is equity and there is no justifiable reason given to us as to why Governor Udom Emmanuel should not be supported to go for a second term.’’
