The group in its jaundiced communiqué raised an alarm that they have gathered from good authority that the State Governor Mr Udom Emmanuel and the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom State have concluded plans to “foist” Dr. (Mrs.) Akon Eyakenyi on the people of Eket Senatorial District as their next senator and fruitlessly attempted to castigate the Governor, PDP leadership as well as Dr. Mrs. Akon Eyakenyi.
Reacting to the development, the National Co-ordinator, Akon Eyakenyi Volunteers for Udom Emmanuel, called on the people of Eket Senatorial District in particular and the entire Akwa Ibomites to discountenance the yet to be published communiqué in an attempt to smear the hard-earned image of a frontline PDP woman of substance who remains an ardent supporter of Governor Udom led administration.
Mr. Esin explained that the said communiqué was a handiwork of those from Oro Nation who have lost out of political relevance and were being hunted by the rising and intimidating political profile and clean bill of dedicated public service of Dr. Mrs. Akon Eyakenyi.
According to Esin, “I’m happy that the group has acknowledged the wide acceptability of Dr. Mrs. Akon Eyakenyi’s Senatorial ambition and I hereby call on them to join the moving train before they are left behind in the mercy of bad weather. We know the sponsors of the fictitious communiqué and we advised them to return to G-22.
“They are the ones who abandoned PDP and decided to reap from where they did not sow. They have failed woefully. The principal sponsor has no political structure and Dr. Akon Eyakenyi cannot join him in his macabre dance because she is already sure of total victory, considering unquestionable democratic credentials”.
He commended the State Governor for his sincere commitment towards the development of Oro Nation and promised to ensure overwhelming votes for his 2019 governorship ambition.
On his part, the National Coordinator, Coalition of Oro Community Youth Leaders, Comrade Bassey Idungikan frowned seriously at the level of desperation exhibited by those whom he said have since been sent on compulsory political retirement. He emphasized that no amount of blackmail will distract them from giving their total votes to Governor Udom Emmanuel and Dr. Mrs. Akon Eyakenyi in the 2019 general elections. He also vowed that the youths of Oro Nation will not hesitate to expose and descend heavily on any idle politician who is in the habit of blackmailing their prominent daughter who had worked hard to ensure Oro people voted overwhelmingly for Governor Udom Emmanuel in the last general elections.
The famous Oro born politician and youth activist also stated that “Dr. Akon Eyakenyi is Oro choice. She is a perfect brand that does not need marketing. She is intellectually and politically grounded. This is a payback time. She is a woman of goodwill. She has impacted positively on Oro youths, women and elders. She bought cars to our elders and youths, empowered more than 2000 sons and daughters of Oro and beyond and attracted Mini Housing Estate to Oro Nation, located in Eyetong in Oron Local government area. She has constructed and furnished state-of-the-art Town Hall in Idua Oron through the support of MDGs and intervened in some road network within Oron urban, among others
“She is vocal, purpose-driven and result-oriented. His Excellency should not listen to these political jobbers who are bent on taking their compounding political woes to the doorstep of responsible, consistent, focused and relevant politician like Dr (Mrs) Akon Eyakenyi. These fair weather politicians have already seen their failure before the PDP forth coming PDP Primaries. With the emergence of Dr. Mrs Akon Eyakenyi as the PDP flag bearer after the Primaries, PDP should expect landslide victory in all elective positions. “In times like this when caution is thrown to the wind by political jobbers, we cann ot expect anything less than blackmail and wild imaginations by some parasitic idle minds. But the height of this ingratitude which must attract instant condemnation is any attempt by paid agents to cast aspersions on a highly respected name and person of the quintessential Akon Eyakenyi pedigree”. “If not for the fact that the bold and indelible imprints of Akon Eyakenyi are unassailable on the Akwa Ibom and Nigeria socio-political canvas, we perhaps would have been bothered about the terminal consequences of these baseless, unconscionable lies and attacks by shameless ingrates.”
