Eket Local Government Chairman, Hon. Frank Archibong has reiterated his avowed commitment of ensuring that Eket Local Government area delivers all the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming election 100%.
He made this known in a youth get together at his home residence in Ikot Ibiok village in Eket local government area of Akwa Ibom State yesterday.
Archibong who doubles as the ALGON Chairman, AKS stated that the PDP has over the years proven that it is the only party that feels the pulses of the people, and has created several opportunities to better lives and the economy.
“PDP is the only party that can make you gather like this, PDP is the only party that thinks of you, PDP is the only party that will move you from one point to the other”- he said.
He enumerated the benefits of the youths in the present administration, acknowledging that he alongside the state constituency representative, trained about 40 youths in different technical fields in preparation for job opening in oil fields.
“Last year I and the house member trained 40 youths in fitting, scaffolding, etc. today those we trained have been sent out to work in oil firms, this year we will train more.
“Let the wards nominate one youth each for Bosiet and Huwed training, so that any time there are job opening offshores, we know we have youths already prepared”
“But we have to be fair, only those working for the party and the government will be beneficiaries of this trainings and job openings” – he added.
He charged the youths to know that the 2019 they used to promise they will deliver the Governor is here, and they have to work assiduously to ensure their votes are protected for victory.
Also speaking at the event, the state assembly representative, Hon. David Lawrence said the duty of the youths is to protect the weak and defend the interest of the community.
The lawmaker said that from unveiling events, the plans to stop the governor’s reelection is to scuttle development in the oil producing communities, who have contributed immensely to the development of other senatorial districts uninterruptedly for 8years respectively.
“All emerging Governor’s in Akwa Ibom state governed for 8years, they used the 8 years to develop their communities, now that is our turn, they say Udom is going to do four years, so as to disrupt our development”
The Lawmaker, who is instrumental to the citing of the International market by the Chinese in Eket, announced that on the completion of the market the Chinese firm will commence a Methanol company in Eket.
He charged the youths to rise in defense of their development by ensuring that every vote is protected, noting that with Udom Emmanuel as Governor, everyone will forget that ExxonMobil is existing in Akwa Ibom because of emerging industries.
In the same page, the Eket Chapter chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, ObongIwaad Emman Mbong, said that Eket local government used to be at the forefront of the Niger Delta struggle.
Mbong made emphasis that while the PDP is campaigning; showing love to each other, the APC says they are bringing in Niger Delta militants into different units to overrun them.
He stated that the Niger Delta struggle started with the beating of a seating governor in the local government for making derogatory remarks about the Eket people, that no state was able to do that across the Niger Delta.
“When the youths of Eket were fighting and demanding that their youths should be employed and be given managerial positions in multinationals, where were there, is it today that they will come and teach you what you know how to do best?”
He charged the youths to rise to the occasion and defend their rights using their all, and prove to the people that they are the true custodians of the Niger Delta struggle.
Also speaking, a chieftain of the Party and Member of the Board of internal revenue, AKS, Elder Nse Atang has stated that the APC Guber candidate is an Akwa Ibom vomit, and that Akwa Ibom cannot chew the cud.
“Nsima was rejected by A’Ibom people on the grounds of gross incompetency, why should we now find him culpable to lead?”
He stressed that A’Ibom have spoken and there is no going back in their support for Udom Emmanuel, who have performed beyond expectation.
