Eket Stakeholders Vow To Vilify Gov Emmanuel's Distractors
Henceforth, anyone who feels he can distract the administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel from its developmental agenda in the state, through propagation of baseless falsehood must first be ready to receive massive vilification of Eket people.
This is because the people have reiterated their resolve to defend, project and support the laudable leadership of Governor Emmanuel who they describe as their own, to reign in office for 8 uninterrupted years.
This was the general position conveyed during a meeting of political office holders from Eket local government area, hosted by the council transition chairman, Mr Frank Archibong and the Eket Chapter chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Obongiwaad Emmanuel Mbong.
They commended Governor Emmanuel for the numerous urbanisation and industrial programmes embarked in the area as well as appointment of indigenes of the area into key positions in the current administration.
It was agreed that they will come out strongly against sponsored media attacks against the PDP led government in the state, wondering why people in the opposition were yet to understand that the 2015 election had since come and gone.
They pledged to continue wooing support from the grassroots for the governor, and insisted that Eket remained 100% PDP
The meeting was attended by the Permanent Secretary ,Government House Pastor Umo Bassey, the Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants to the Governor, the members of Eket transition committee, chapter and ward executives of the PDP, among others.
Highpoint of the meeting was donations towards acquisition of a more befitting secretariat complex for the party in the area.
