The crises rocking the APC in Akwa Ibom state has reached a crescendo with more stakeholders of the party calling it time with the party.
Latest on the roll is Sunny Udom,campaign Director General of 2015 APC governorship candidate after repeatedly condemning President Muhammadu Buhari for neglect of the ‘real’ Akwa Ibom chieftains of the party in the scheme of things.
With the clear indications that Buhari will not throw carrots their way, the managing director of Soni Udom and Partners has promptly concluded plans to return to PDP the party he abandoned 2 years ago.
During a visit to the commissioner for Works Mr Ephraim Inyang, Chief Udom drummed support for Governor Emmanuel who he described as a man with good leadership skills.
He thanked Governor Udom Emmanuel for his commitment to the development of Akwa Ibom State, and said his meeting with the works commissioner has given him a different impression of him from some of the negative stories in the media.
“All the stories we use to hear that Ephraim Inyang is the Umarru Dikko of this administration has been erased today. I can only rightly describe him as an engine room of the government”.
He said he was impressed with the Governor’s decision to convert an abandoned building into a state of the arts secretariat complex to meet with government’s needs.
Chief Sunny Udom also scored Governor Udom Emmanuel high on security.
“As you know I was a victim of an assassination attempt. I use to move around with policemen at great cost. I can now proudly tell you that I move around alone freely and I feel safe. The Governor has done well in that regard” he added.
The Commissioner For Works, Akwa Ibom State, Akparawa Ephraim Inyang used the meeting to assure that Governor Emmanuel is committed to delivering on his campaign promises anchored on sustainable development.
It would be recalled that Sunny Udom in an interview in Uyo two months ago had sent signals to President Buhari on the need to recognise prominent APC chieftains with ‘juicy’ boards, adding that such was needed if the party must remain in contention for 2019 elections in the state.
