The Uyo Senatorial District of the youth Caucus has unanimously resolved to work with Governor Udom Emmanuel till 2023, warning every other opposition party/candidate to desist from blackmail and criticism, as it can’t deter supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party in the State.
Speaking with journalist at his residence, the Uyo Senatorial District Vice-Chairman of the youth caucus, Mr. Eyo Silas Udookon, unequivocally said that, Governor Emmanuel’s performance in this economic challenging time is highly commendable and should rather receive applause than criticism from those still opposing his gubernatorial mandate.
He stated that Governor Emmanuel, precursor to the general election gave a post-dated cheque to every Akwa Ibom indigene, and the cheque covered every sphere of the economy. Today, the cheque has translated into monumental infrastructures, proving that Udom is a sincere politician, and should be given a fair share of eight years leadership mandate as his predecessors had.
“Many were in doubt that the resuscitation of the moribund Peacock paint was a mere speculation. Today peacock paint has no competitor in the market. How about the Syringe Company where workers are undergoing training in Turkey, Akwa Ibom Hatchery, Toothpick and Pencil Industry, Ibom Metering Company? All this aforementioned, speaks volume of Udom’s industrialization drive, and it’s so glaring that he will leave Akwa Ibom a conglomeration of industries at the expiration of his tenure” – Silas Added.
Mr.Silas, who doubles as an aide to the Speaker of the Sixth Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Onofiok Luke, described the speaker as an intelligible leader with exemplified leadership ethos.
He maintained that for a polity to curb restiveness, empowerment and restructuring of bewildered mindsets are key factors. He noted that the speaker has invested in all the sectors judiciously towards changing the face of the polity, believing that every Akwa Ibomite can attest in satisfaction of the Speaker’s positive impaction.
“I see the Speaker to be an epitome of fairness, generosity and above all a great patriot; a man who understands human values, who feels the pulses of his people, with an innate ability to transmogrify human capital development, He has built dreams, renewed hope and above all, brought succor to the less privileged” – Silas asserted.
He thanked the speaker for finding him worthy to work for him, saying his loyalty to the party (PDP) and the office of the speaker remains absolute.
However, Mr. Silas promised to insert his garnered knowledge from the Speakers positive representation and youth friendly leadership, in building ta progressive Uyo Senatorial District Youths that will support the Dakkada initiative of the present administration
