*promises to purchase nomination form for him


A call has been made for Pastor Umo Eno, Commissioner for Lands and Water Resources in Akwa Ibom State, to vie for the governorship of the state in 2023.

The plea was made by foremost socio-political group, Ahead Ahead Initiative, during a media briefing held over the weekend.

Hon. Victor Etim, who is the State Coordinator of the group which exists in all the 31 Local Government Areas of the state, said Pastor Umo Eno is imbue with intelligence, charisma, kind heart, experience and discipline to consolidate the progress made by the Governor Udom Emmanuel administration.

Hon. Etim, who is a former member, Akwa Ibom State Hotels and Tourism Board, said the Lands Commissioner’s success as an entrepreneur would translate into the proper management of the state’s economy.

He, however, revealed that the group will sponsor the purchase of his nomination form when the sale of forms commences.

Etim opined that Governor Udom Emmanuel has since 2015 worked hard to engender peace and development in the state, adding that a successor in the mould of Pastor Umo Eno would better such strides.

“We thank His Excellency for bringing lasting peace to Akwa Ibom State. This peace has been sustained for the past six years. I can assure you that I’ve witnessed unprecedented peace in Akwa Ibom State. This situation has brought in the desired development to the state.

“We know that 2023 is at the corner. Udom has done extremely well that we need a successor who can do what he has done even better. No just anyone. One of our sons from Nsit Ubium LGA who is currently the honourable Commissioner for Lands and Water Resources, Umo Eno is the best option for this job.

“We are calling on him to go for the seat of the Governor come 2023. We’ve seen that he is the one who will carry on the vision and mission of Akwa Ibom State as Governor come 2023. He is God-fearing, humble as a dove, home grown, competent and a faithful party man. He is the best for the state.”

The group further revealed that Umo has created and secured meaningful jobs for over two thousand Akwa Ibom youth and women, expressing belief that he will clinch the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) ticket.

Umo Eno is the founder of Royalty Group of Companies, former Chairman, Akwa Ibom Hotels and Tourism Board; Founder of All Nations Christian Ministry International; Executive Director, Directorate of Agricultural Investments, Akwa Ibom Investment Corporation (AKICORP); Member, Post Covid-19 Economic Reconstruction Committee; and Secretary, Akwa Ibom State Committee on Agricultural Investments.
