2019: I Regret Imposing Udom Emmanuel On Akwa Ibom People - Akpabio
Akpabio, who represents Akwa Ibom North-West in the Senate, has said the current state governor, Udom Emmanuel was a mistake that must be corrected in 2019.
He added that all hands must be on deck for the mistake to be corrected.
“Udom (Emmanuel) is a mistake that must be corrected in 2019. All hands must be on the deck to ensure the mistake is corrected for a people-oriented leadership under the ruling All Progressives Congress at the centre.
“I want to thank you for defying the rain to honour me as your leader and troop out in this multitude even at a very short notice.
"It goes to show the level of love and confidence you have in me as your leader and I promise to also reward you for your time and energy in this all-important project,” he said.
According to him, Emmanuel’s administration has failed the people, forcing him to take a decisive action to correct the anomaly for posterity to be fair to him.
Akpabio said there was prevalence of hunger and deprivation in Akwa Ibom since the Emmanuel administration assumed power, adding that it was time for a holistic action to liberate the state from the shackles of misgovernance in the last three years.
Akpabio had in the run-up to the 2015 elections, against all odds, declared Emmanuel, who was the then Secretary to the State Government, as his successor.Please share this story with your family and friends
