Chapter Chairmen of the Peopleís Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, has commended the lofty vision of Moses Essien, a gubernatorial aspirant in the State.

The Chapter Chairmen speaking through Honorable Sony Udom, State Vice Chairman of the Party who hails from the Senatorial district, were responding to the speech made by the aspirant when he formally met with the Party Leaders to intimate them of his aspiration to be Governor of the State come next year.

Others include Honourable Idung Afa, Oruk Anam; Andy Usoro, Ika; and the Akwa Ibom State women Leader in the person of Mrs. Victoria.
The Governorship Aspirant who was accompanied by a cross section of his supporters from the different Senatorial Districts of the State, said he was happy to be amongst his own people, being himself from Ikono L.G.A in Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District.
By that singular fact he said he would be frank in his speech knowing their censure would be mild where he goes wrong. He then proceeded to outline his vision, and programmes for the State.
He cited the crisis in Ika L.G.A as a slap on the face of the Senatorial district and vowed that a new government headed by him would declare the area a disaster zone and accord it requisite government attention to speed up its rehabilitation.
Of the 300 industries he plans to establish in the State if he is voted Governor next year, 80, he promised, will be cited in the senatorial District.
As regards the international connection he has established over the years, he said he would use it to attract investors into the State, especially in the area of Agriculture, which holds great promise for the state given the stateís vast and arable land.
He said Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district has many able Sons and daughters that should be encouraged to be Governor, but that amongst the lot he is the most qualified given his past track record in the State when he was Commissioner, and his entrepreneurship foresight that has seen him employing over 4,000 Akwa Ibomites in his three Companies. He promised to do more if elected Governor.
He acknowledged the contributions of the party leaders and promised to remember them when he gets into office.
In their response, the Chapter Chairmen unanimously agreed the aspirant deserves to be supported in his mission to transform and reposition the State on the path of political renewal and economic progress.

He pledged to take the aspirantís message of concern back home to his forlorn people, and reiterated the need for the aspirant to begin his rehabilitation programme for Ika immediately. He said that position would readily convince the people as to what he will be able to do when he becomes Governor.
To Moses Essien.
