Prince Enobong Uwah made this plea which he described as his special request when a group of journalists known as E4 Plus played host to him, while marking his 48th birthday on January 15, 2017.
Eulogizing Governor Udom Emmanuel as a focused, committed and God fearing leader who has a well defined vision to improve the fortunes of the state, Prince Uwah explained that, having worked so closely with the governor from the time he was secretary to the State Government and as a Commissioner in his cabinet, he can say without fear of contradiction that, the Peoples Democratic Party mad a divinely inspired choice when she nominated and fielded Mr Emmanuel as the parties candidate in the 2015 election.
Prince Uwah charged the Press to harness all the platforms of social, electronic and print media to promote and inform the people about the people oriented policies of the Udom Emmanuel led administration, maintaining that, this was in the best interest of the future, sustainable development of the state.
While reiterating his loyalty and support for the second term of Governor Emmanuel in office, Prince Uwah said he will contribute his quota to ensure that, the government succeeds and called on all good people of the state to support the governor to succeed.
Earlier, the head of the E4 Plus Team, Mr Edidiong Udobia, congratulated Mr Uwah on his birthday and commended him for what he qualified as his excellent performance while serving as Commissioner, since the first stint in 2011 when he was in charge of Environment and Mineral Resources.
Mr Udobia said, his meritorious service to the state and good relationship with the press warranted the surprise birthday celebration by the group and pledged that, the affinity will continue.
He assured Prince Uwah that, the Press will continue to play its role as an agent of development while holding government responsive and accountable to the people.
