“When the Lord has approved of a thing, no man can stop it. As a child of God, the Bible records, and has decreed, that wherever the soul of my feet shall step on, He shall give it to me as a possession.

“Let the heavens hear me, and let the earth pay attention, as I step my feet on Nsit Ibom soil, the APC, from today, has taken possession of the land and I hereby declare it an APC local government.

“No one could have thought that a child of a nobody could be chosen as a deputy governorship candidate. That means there is hope for everyone. There’s hope for all”, he said.

Thanking all the 31 chapter chairmen of the party for creating awareness across their local govt areas, Hon.  Antai used the occasion to officially present the next House of Assembly member for Nsit Ibom State Constituency, Comr. Nath Otio to the people.
