Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state has declared for a second term, saying that he was presenting himself, “for consideration to continue the good works you have so far helped me to achieve as your Servant-Leader on the platform of the only political party that Akwa Ibom people have trusted in the last 19 years of our democratic governance, the PDP.”

Governor Emmanuel recounted the success story of his administration in the areas of massive investments in quality healthcare delivery, food security and affordability, and education, adding that infrastructural development and provision of amenities such as economically viable roads that had opened up the hinterlands for people to engage in commercial activities. Acknowledging the aphorism that ‘a job well done means more job to be done,’ Governor Emmanuel commended the people for their cooperation which has led to the establishment of several industries in the state, promising that he will continue to rise above personal interest to work towards the overall interest of the state.

On the reported war threats by some opposition members in the state, the Governor was upbeat in rebuking such threats, saying that Akwa Ibom people should not be intimidated. He said his administration has executed over 20 kilometers of the Uyo – Ikot Ekpene Road which he met at only 3km ready, adding that the Four Point Sheraton Hotel executed by the previous administration never had the trappings of a five star Hotel at the time he assumed office.
