Embrace returnees, Eno tells Akwa Ibom PDP ward leaders

The Akwa  Ibom State Governor, Umo  Eno, also urged the leadership of the Peoples Democratic party across the 368 wards in the state to be magnanimous in victory and open their doors to receive those returning to the party.

The governor, according to a statement on Monday by the Government House press unit, gave the charge during the PDP ward meeting at his country home, Ibiakpan-Obotim Ward II Centre, Nsit-Ibuim Local Government Area of the state.

Eno explained that the purpose of the ward meeting was to afford the party leadership the opportunity to receive the mass of people thronging back to the party lately.

He  said, “It has been a good outing. We intend to continue to build the party at the grassroots, to continue to work for our state and to continue to support our President at the centre.

“We have finished elections and people want to come back. I believe they have seen that the government is responsible, has the capacity and they are convinced and are coming back of their own volition, without being pushed.

“As a good father and a responsible party, we have to open our doors, because Akwa Ibom is a PDP state and from time, it has always been. So, we need to increase our membership, continue to show capacity and also get feedback from those at the base of the party.”

The governor said the huge number of returnees was indicative of the fact that they are convinced of the direction and sincerity of the PDP-led government in the state.

Eno said the development would broaden the party support base.

Welcoming the governor and other members of the ward, the Ibiakpan-Obotim Ward II Chairman, Ukpong Michael, expressed the satisfaction of the party at the ward level with the governor’s performance in less than one year.

He also commended the impressive turnout of party faithful and urged the people to continue supporting their own.
