Uyo Group Canvasses For Murray, Says He’s Jinx Breaker
A sociopolitical group in Uyo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, under the aegis of Uyo Liberation Mandate, has thrown its weight behind the second term ambition of the member representing Uyo State Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Monday Eyo Okon, for the 2019 general election.
The group made up of professionals, egg-heads and various think-tanks from the local government, urged aggrieved aspirants to sheathe their swords and join hands with Hon. Monday and the party’s leadership to work for success for the interest of peace in Uyo and the state at large.
In a communique released after their meeting recently in Uyo, members unanimously voted for Murray as the House member is fondly called, to ensure continuity of his quality representation.
Describing him as a jinx breaker, the group disclosed that in the history of Uyo politic, nobody has ever represented the local government for two terms, but Hon Monday will break that barrier.
Some youth leaders in Uyo, Signor Ene (Etoi), and Victor Nyong (Offot) said Hon. Monday is qualified and has the capacity to build the constituency in line with the massive infrastructural development of Governor Udom Emmanuel and move the LG to the next level of industrialisation, job creation and empowerment of the youths who are the future of Akwa Ibom.
Signor said the group had therefore put machinery in motion to vigorously mobilse the people to vote for Murray during the 2019 poll because of his understanding of the vision of Governor Emmanuel for the state.
