2019: Akwa Ibom People Will Choose Light Against Darkness –Sam Edoho
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State on Marketing and Brand Management, Mr. Sam Edoho, has expressed confidence that come 2019 gubernatorial polls, indigenes of the state will vote for the reelection of the current governor whom he described as a man of peace, progress and industrialization against the candidate of the main opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state.
Mr. Edoho, a Marketing and Branding expert made the assertion during the weekend while featuring as guest of a live radio programme ‘Diary of Development’ on Heritage Radio 104.9 FM in Eket.
Responding to questions on whether he and other members of the incumbent Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state were losing sleep on the hills of frantic efforts by the opposition APC to lure and woo indigenes of the state to support their candidates, Mr. Edoho said that he was confident that people of the state will keep faith with Governor Udom Emmanuel, saying that 2019 polls present opportunities for people of the state to chose between light and darkness, evil and good.
In his words, “2019 is a choice for Akwa Ibom people to make, and the choice is between light and darkness, evil and good. And I know Akwa Ibom people will chose good any day. We will choose light any day.”
Speaking further, Edoho, a former Director of Marketing with telecoms giant – Globacom, warned people of the state not to take the peace, security and progress currently enjoyed in the state for granted, adding that the state has been advancing and making economic progress since the inception of the current administration in the state.
“Today we live in peace and harmony. The relative peace plus industrialization in the state is leading us forward. Akwa Ibom state is advancing, going ahead, moving forward, not backward. And so when it comes to 2019, the people should vote for peace, progress and industrialization.
“Let us not return to the dark days of kidnapping, cultism, wanton murder and the likes. Those are the dark days and those days are in our past and we are moving forward,” he advised.
