Secretary to the Akwa Ibom State Government, Mr Udom Gabriel Emmanuel, will resign his appointment today preparatory to entering the 2015 governorship race, a reliable source close to him has disclosed.
The source claimed that Emmanuel “has been under intense pressure from different quarters to contest the 2015 governorship election,” adding that he appears to have heeded the pleas and is set to declare his governorship ambition on Tuesday.
Speculations had been rife that the former banking top shot who became SSG less than a year ago was set to succeed Governor Godswill Akpabio whose second term expires in 2015.
“With his resignation and declaration scheduled for Tuesday in Uyo, he has put paid to those speculations, in a move that will receive the commendations of indigenes and residents of the state,” the source stated.
