“Mr chairman, I am very sure that our party will yield to the cry of Nigerians for us to take over power from the rudderless APC led administration come 2023. The mission to rescue Nigeria, is destined for success.
The essence for the sensitization tour that we will be embarking on, is to build a one million eligible voters bank for the party come 2023 general elections, and encourage people at all level to go for their PVC collection. It’s to also preach the developmental strides of Governor Udom Emmanuel’s administration to the people at the grassroot and the need to vote Pastor Umo Eno into power for continuity sake, and other candidates of our party. Prior to this exercise, we want you to inform all the chapter chairmen of PDP across 31 LGAs for warm reception and smooth running of the sensitization tour”. The movement helmsman prayed.
In response to the prayers by the movement, the State Party Chairman, Rt. Hon. Elder Aniekan Akpan, commended the formidable youth wing of the party for having the zeal to fashion out ideas aiming at the development of Akwa Ibom state and the success of the party at large come 2023.

He also harped on the need for Pastor Umo Eno to be voted for, in order to continue the good works done by Governor Udom Emmanuel’s administration.
In his words, ” With you all here, I can go to bed and sleep because I’m certain that you can project the party’s image to a point worthy of emulation and the success of the party is sure having you all on board”.
