Excitements As Akpabio Emerges A’Ibom Labour Party Guber Candidate

BY INIOBONG SUNDAY, UYO

It was excitements galore yesterday as the Labour Party, LP, with Dr. Peter Obi, as the Presidential candidate, finally got it’s Governorship candidate for Akwa Ibom State.

A socio-political organisation rooting for former Anambra Governor Peter Obi’s presidential quest in 2023,  Akwa Ibom Movement For Obi’23 (AMO), has expressed optimism that Obi, has finally berthed in the State, ahead of the polls.

This followed the emergence of Mr. Joseph Isaiah Akpabio, as the Governorship flag-bearer of the Labour Party (LP) in the forthcoming general  elections next year.

While describing the emergence of Akpabio as “the face of young people in the State”, the convener, Hon. Jackson Etim, and Secretary-General, Mrs. Charity Edoho, noted that his emergence was a testimony of the fact that “anyone could rise to become anything in life”.

Congratulating the candidate on his emergence yesterday, he said: ‘On behalf of the Board of Trustees, State Executive Committee, Chapter Coordinators and all the members of Akwa Ibom Movement For Obi’23 (AMO’23), we rise to heartily congratulate our founding member and governorship candidate of our great party, the Labour Party (LP); Mr. Joseph Isaiah Akpabio, on his landslide victory during the party’s governorship primary election held recently in Uyo, the state capital.

“We also wish to congratulate the Mr. Lincoln Charles-led State Executive of our Party on the successful conduct of a rancour-free party primary elections across the state.

“Our governor in -waiting, in our various conversations with you, you have never failed to express your deep concerns about state of things in Akwa Ibom, in spite of huge allocations received.           

 “As an American-trained Community Health expert, you have always wished that you had the opportunity of governing the state so as to bring to bear your vast wealth of knowledge, to turn around the State’s health system positively”.

He, therefore, expressed the readiness of the group to leverage on “the unprecedented acceptability and popularity of the Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate and former governor of Anambra state, His Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi” as the next President in 2023.

“AMO’23 is assuredly ready to work for the cause of the cause of Peter Obi, as Akwa Ibom Governor and Joseph Akpabio, as the next Governor of Akwa Ibom State in 2023”, he stressed.
