Fellow Akwa Ibomites, let me start by wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year. This is certainly going to be a Glorious Year- a year where the God we worship, the God who is ever present in times of need and in time of plenty will reveal himself and perform supernatural miracles in our lives and in our state in 2017.
The Akwa Ibom State Peoples Democratic Party Secretariat along Edet Akpan Avencue Uyo, was a beehive of activities as members of the Party across the thirty one Local Government Areas, National and State Assembly members , Political Stakeholders, Elder-statemen , Transition Committee Members, Party Officers as well as the State, Chapter and Ward Executive converged for an End-of Year meeting with the Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel.
I have come to this Hallowed Chambers with great expectations and an abiding hope that we can, once again, renew our faith in the Akwa Ibom project, and erect lasting structures and institutions that will launch us on a path of enduring growth and prosperity
Good evening great Akwa Ibomites, good evening Nigeria, good evening Africa and good evening the world. I come to you tonight from the deep bowels of our beautiful and exotic city of Uyo- the capital of Nigeria’s Land of Promise- the great state that remains the only one that is named after God Almighty.
