Governor Udom Emmanuel has finally ended months of speculations and permutations with the formal presentation of his Commissioner for Lands and Water Resources, Pastor Umo Eno, as his preferred candidate for the 2023 governorship election.
This followed weeks of agitations and protests by some PDP members against the governor’s choice.
At a well-attended PDP stakeholders’ meeting yesterday at the Governor’s Lodge, in Uyo, Emmanuel confirmed Eno as his choice.
Former governor, Obong Victor Attah, thereafter, made the formal presentation of Eno to the PDP stakeholders, which comprised major and leading political chieftains from the three senatorial districts, who applauded the choice and pledged to work with the governor of the state come 2023.
Eno spoke passionately and emotionally about how he grew up in the police barracks and how challenging those days were, but he summoned the courage to overcome those difficulties.
He said he was grateful to God and to Emmanuel for finding him worthy of the onerous task of leading the people of the state and continuing the people-focused and developmental strides of Emmanuel. (The Guardian)
