The Peoples Democratic Party has congratulated the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Umo Eno, on the Judgment of the Supreme Court, which upheld his victory at the March 18, 2023, governorship election in the state.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, made this known in Abuja on Thursday, following the verdict.
He said, “This judgement of the Supreme Court, the highest and final court in our country, is a victory for democracy and the decisive triumph of the will of the people of Akwa Ibom State in their determination to preserve good governance in their state.
“The spontaneous jubilation across Akwa Ibom State at the news of the judgement of the Supreme Court shows that the verdict is in line with their expressed will, aspiration, and choice at the March 18, 2023 governorship election.
“Governor Eno is a humble, compassionate, and visionary leader; a seasoned administrator with extensive managerial skills that he acquired over the years in both the private and public sectors; qualities that continue to endear him to the people of Akwa Ibom State, and which they overwhelmingly elected him at the polls.
“Our Party is proud of his leadership capacity, especially in hitting the ground running upon inauguration with the launch of the ARISE Agenda, leading to monumental achievements in the delivery of life-changing citizen empowerment programmes and projects in critical sectors including agriculture, education, healthcare, security, housing, road infrastructure, manufacturing, commerce, and aviation, among others.
“The PDP congratulates the people of Akwa Ibom State for this victory and charges Governor Eno to remain steadfast in building on the legacies of his predecessor in office, His Excellency Udom Emmanuel, in the delivery of his people-oriented ARISE Agenda programmes and projects in line with the policy thrust and manifesto of the PDP.”
