2023: Akwa Ibom Deputy Gov., Ekpo urges PDP Elders to be united

Chief Moses Ekpo, Deputy Governor, Akwa Ibom State
The Akwa Ibom Deputy Governor, Mr Moses Ekpo, has urged the the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) elders to work as a team and avoid factions as the 2023 election is approaching.

Ekpo, who said this when the Abak Local Government PDP Ward Elders Chairmen Forum paid him a courtesy call in his office in Uyo, said that one of the critical imperatives of leadership is unity of purpose.

He urged them to always work as a team to galvanize the needed gains to bring back the glory of the party as 2023 approaches.

“As the 2023 elections inch closer, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been challenged to work as a team and eschew factionalization if the party’s hope to return to the centre is to be realized,” Ekpo said.

He commended Abak PDP Elders for standing solidly behind Gov. Udom Emmanuel’s administration, and for resolving to continue to support his effort to ensure that indigenes secure a stable future.

The deputy governor commended the party elders for working assiduously to bring back members of the party who had earlier defected from the PDP.

He urged the party leaders to work as a united front and not as a fragmented group in order to achieve the desired integration and inclusiveness within the larger party structure.

Earlier, the Leader of the Group, Mr Ikemesit Ayara, said the meeting afforded the forum the opportunity to appreciate the developmental strides of the governor and his efforts in fostering unity in the state.

Ayara thanked the governor for the completion of the Ikot Oku Ikono junction fly-over which is the vital connecting point to Abak, and other parts of the state.

He appealed to the state government to undertake a comprehensive rehabilitation of the Ikot Oku Ikono/Ukpom/Abak road and other adjoining roads, which have been badly damaged as they were converted to alternative routes during the construction of the flyover.
