“I can also say, with a sense of pride and satisfaction that, since in March 2019 that I started to give a push to this dream, I had at no time received the least sum of one thousand naira as support from any individual or group, even with my recent call for partnership and support”, part of his statement read.
Hon. Udom further assured his supporters that his aspiration could still be achieved in another party or postponed to a future date apperantly threatening to defect from Peoples Democratic Party.
“Finally, since I am persuaded in my spirit that DIVINESEAL is a vision that awaits manifestation in due season, my decision either to continue to give it a push in 2023 through another platform or postpone it to a later time will be made known in due course”
Hon. Nkereuwem S. Udom was a councilor in
