Umo Eno

A media advocacy group, the Mandate Eyes, has confirmed that the PDP Governorship Candidate, Pastor Umo Eno has not stepped down from the 2023 Governorship race in Akwa Ibom but is rather waxing stronger with his support base increasing by the day.

The group has described as false and poor fabricated, a news that Mr Akan Okon has been approached and asked to step in as the new candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP.

In an interview in Uyo, Publicity Secretary of the group, Pastor Micheal Okon said, “we have come across a grammatically morally reprehensible concocted story by media urchins suspected to be working for a defeated Governorship aspirant, Akan Ekpe Okon.

The group wondered how Akan Okon who could only manage a miserable 3 votes in the governorship primaries that more than 1000 Adhoc delegates voted, could be given the destiny of over 7million people.

“Recently people from Akan Okon’s community in Mbiatok, Itu local government area, have come out to disown him on account of his poor disposition to generosity and philanthropy.

“How can a man who has been disowned and publicly disgraced by his community for failure to use his position for the benefit of others, be entrusted with the destiny of Akwa Ibom people?”

The group maintained that “Pastor Umo Eno, having attended and acquired his senior school certificate from the Victory High School, Ikeja where he was the Senior Prefect, has been hailed and celebrated by his school mates, current college principal, as a worthy Ambassador of the school.

“Akan Okon and his media scavengers should understand that no contest can ever be won by the number of lies and insult hurled at political rivals.

“Mr Akan Okon’s sponsored blackmails and veiled media attacks against Umo Eno during their time in the State Executive Council never fetched him any medal of honour and we don’t believe it will happen any time soon.

We hereby call on well meaning people to ignore this poor attempt of winning the race through the back door by a rejected, defeated and inconsequential political charlatan.
