Attempts by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom State to make a bold statement in Ikot Ekpene has hit the rocks, following the inability of the party to pull significant political heavyweights in the area into its fold. 

It was gathered that despite several mouth watering offers allegedly masterminded by the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Nsima Ekere,  former commissioners, Don Etim, Etido Inyang and former two-term lawmaker, Nsikak Ekong, and Senator Emmanuel Ibokessien have held sway as leaders of over 150,000 unrepentant Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in Ikot Ekpene area of the state.

Mr. Ekere, who is believed to have his eyes set on the 2019 elections, was said to have been disappointed when none of the bigwigs he approached gave him a listening ear, despite his juicy offers. Recently, Mr Ekere had allegedly used the same carrots approach to lure Barr Bassey Dan Abia Jr. to APC, after promising him appointment as his legal adviser in the NDDC.

It was learnt that the PDP chieftains despite not holding any political office, rejected the baits on the premise that APC has not fared well at the national level and should bother more about rescuing the national economy from recession and improving the quality of life of Nigerians.

A PDP member in Ikot Ekepne said: “We are all in active support of PDP, our governor Udom Emmanuel and Senator Akpabio.” He thanked Governor Emmanuel for re-commencing the Uyo – Ikot Ekpene dual carriageway as well as executing and commissioning an emergency Infectious Hospital in the area.
