2019 polls: Governor Udom Signs Peace Accord With INEC
The event which took place at the Ibom Hall, Uyo Akwa Ibom State was organized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and presided over by the Residents Electoral Commissioner, Mr Mike Igini.
In the attendance were Governor Udom Emmanuel and other PDP candidates in the forthcoming elections, while the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nsima Ekere, shunned the Peace Accord.
Nsima was said to have arrived the venue of the meeting two hours behind schedule, and attempted moving through the front door to the head table but was halted by the security agents for breach of protocol.
He was redirected by the security agents to take the back door of the Ibom Hall into the auditorium but he angrily left the scene with threat to instigate violence during the elections.
Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, other candidates of PDP and APC together with all the Service Chiefs in the state, were already seated before scheduled time in preparation for the truce meeting.
Nsima Ekere’s attitude may be further confirmation of his recent statement that he is mischievous and even his friends know about that.
The APC Governorship candidate’s action should put security agencies on alert on his further plan to destabilize the state before and during the elections.
