Nathaniel maintained that Umo Eno had for long been in the system. According to him, “Umo Eno has been part of us and as such, the massive support we are getting for him cannot be over emphasized”.
The governor’s aide said , “don’t forget the fact that in the era of Obong Victor Attah as the governor of Akwa Ibom State, he was the chairman of Tourism Board in the state and he is also an entrepreneur.”
He said, “as a good man, Umo Eno knows about the people. He knows us and he is part of us.” He urged the people to make the right choice by standing by what the governor stands for, saying when we get to the train, we will make good journey for him.
Similarly, the Maintain Peace Movement (MPM) FCT Chapter coordinator, Mr. Usenekong Akpan, has expressed assurance that Umo Eno would emerge the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag-bearer in the state and would eventually win the gubernatorial election in Akwa Ibom State.
Speaking with Pioneer Politics, Akpan said, so far Pastor UmoEno was the best and top of the aspirants in terms of his charisma, community service, past and present services, even as an appointee of the state government.
He said Umo Eno deserved to be the next governor. “We in the MPM FCT Chapter stand solidly behind him as he represents peace. I can tell you the baton moves from peace to peace. Peace of Mr. Udom Emmanuel to peace of Pastor Umo Eno and this is what the MPM represents,” Akpan added.
