Aniefiok Dennis, member representing Etinan State Constituency in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly whose election was quashed and nullified by the Appeal Court few months back, is staging a final comeback.
The College deems it fit to support and rally around one of their own who under the Senator Akpabio led administration(then Governor)was the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Legal and Documentation. Himself declares as being a member emeritus, “I am so overwhelmed with joy seeing you guys well organized as a body, during my time we didn’t think of such. This is indeed a welcome development and a sign that you guys are really solid and good to go”. Barr. Denis commended.
The Dean of the college Barr. Andem Andem expound the lofty aims and vision of the Colleage as a formidable, critical and sensitive factor in the political decimal and equation of Iman.
He thanked the entire political structure and Elders for accepting and recognising the brand new initiative and virgin concept of the College. “This era is indeed a new dawn for the entire Iman Ibom people; this body has emerged as a formidable platform and thinktank medium in creating and piloting the way forward in our entire existence. It has never happened before and I am happy to be part of history”.Andem expressed.
Something went phenomenal during the visit as the College made a donation of one hundred thousand naira as a token to aid in the Candidate’s reachout project to the people as the election draws near. Barr. Dennis was further confirmed by the College on his emeritus status as he promised to carry the forum along in the political calculation of the Local administration, promising if voted and returned come March, 12, 2016, he will look into the total inclusion of the forum in all his constituency arrangements. Barr. Dennis declared his support for the current speaker of the Assembly and hailed him for running a vibrant and brand-driven Legislature.
Present at the visit were 14 members of the College from Iman Ibom extraction who are poised and desirous in making a great difference and promising to add more quality and value in making Gov. Udom Emmanuel administration attain a second to none status.
It is glaringly noted that the emergence of Gov. Udom Emmanuel in the political scene of the state has brought much fortunes to the clan and the inclusion of illustrious and distinguished sons and daugthers of Etinan in his administration is highly commendable. It is a promise, with this confidence reposed on us as working allies; he has won our support beyond reasonable doubt.
