Akwa Ibom Governor Udom Emmanuel has said his choice of Pastor Umo Eno as his preferred successor has not created any division within the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) in the State.
Emmanuel said this at the weekend during the 10th Series of “ThegovernorSpeaks” programme aired live on state-owned and private radio stations operating in the state, monitored by the Nation in Uyo.
The Governor rechoed his admonition against those who desire power by violence, adding he would not be distracted.
His words: “As a leader I am entitled to only one vote during the party primaries and the general elections. And that my vote is not for violence, it is not for the man that will go and carry gun and point on your head to grab power.
“Whoever grabs power by violence will rule by violence. So I am telling you that my vote is for peace, it is for progress, it is for economic prosperity, for infrastructural development, unity and I can keep counting.
“So our party the PDP is not divided anything. Those social media things we read is not helping us in any matter. I don’t follow those things, I must get focused; I don’t need those distractions”
On his promise to complete all ongoing projects before handing over, the Governor assured that his administration was doing everything humanly possible to achieve that.
He thanked God the administration has been able to complete some of the capital projects it started despite the recession and the negative effect of COVID-19 on the global economy.
He explained that the execution of those projects across the State even created job opportunities for youths at the sites.
According to him: “These are things that stimulates the economy anywhere in the world. Anytime a country is in recession and you want to come out of the recession, spend more money on infrastructural development, spend more on capital expenditure.
“People hear about COVID-19 but they don’t know the negative impact on the economy around the world. Thank God we have just completed our Smart building.”
