The Publicity Secretary of the PeoplesDemocratic Party (PDP), Akwa Ibom State Chapter, Comrade Ini Ememobong, today took a swipe at Senator Ita Enang, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (Senate), stating categorically that the long-serving legislator is a PDP project currently on loan to the APC.
The Party’s image-maker who was a guest on Superior Performance Show on Inspiration 105.9FM, Uyo hosted by Aniekeme Finbarr asserted that he was not shocked at the recent ranting of the lawmaker whom he said could have never won an election except for the intervention of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
“Incidentally, Barr Ita Enang is a PDP project currently on loan to the APC, because his entire political career, the PDP won elections for him. He could not have won any election”, the erstwhile aide to Gov Udom Emmanuelsaid.
Recall that on Tuesday, Rt. Hon Ime Okon, the member representing Ibiono Ibom State Constituency at the State House of Assembly who was a guest on Akwa Ibom Mandate on Planet 101.1 FM, Uyo was quoted to have said that, “If you come to Ibiono, and you see any abandoned or uncompleted project, you need not ask who handled it, you’ll just know Senator Ita Enang was the one.”
He also went further to describe the former lawmaker who happens to be from his constituency as, “… one that is associated with abandoned projects…”
Comrade Emembong also took time to eulogize his party, describing it as a brand that has come to stay in Akwa Ibom State.
“For us in Akwa Ibom, We’ll like to see Akwa Ibom in the current dispensation as a total PDP brand, because you’ll discover that we’ve been in charge since 1999 till date. We’ve been very lucky to have Governors for their seasons. I keep saying that PDP presented Arch Obong Victor Attah who was a Governorfor his season, PDP also presented Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio who was a Governorfor his season and for this season, God led the PDP to presented Deacon Udom GabrielEmmanuel and no one is in doubt. Even his traducers and enemies are on the sure bet that, he was the best man for this season.”
“He is a man who has the financial ingenuity to manage the lean and absent resources. UdomEmmanuel is a man who has great financial engineering skills, to reengineer the sector and ensure that we remain afloat.
“I said before and I will continue to say, that with Udom, Akwa Ibom remains the oasis of hope in a desert of desolation. That is why you can see even in the current economic recession, he’s creating jobs for the people of Akwa Ibom State. This shows that the hand of God is certainly here. It is not about yourcredentials but it’s about what you know and the grace of God upon your life.”
“The project of PDP is to keep peace in Nigeria, to bring forth, to construct roads, to provide social infrastructure. That is not the project of the APC; maybe that is why they are not doing it.”
“Our project under Akpabio was to uncommonly develop Akwa Ibom. Our project under Attah was to build Le’ Meriden, toconstruct roads and to open up the day. The PDP project under Udom Emmanuel is geared towards industrialization.”
