Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa-Ibom State has encouraged the people of Ikono and Itu Local Government Areas to rally round the Peoples Democratic Party-PDP governorship candidate, Udom Emmanuel for investments to be attracted to the state.
Governor Akpabio made the call yesterday in Ibiaku Ntuk Okpo, the headquarters of Ikono Local Government Area where he visited to canvass support for the PDP standard bearer in the state, President Goodkuck Jonathan as well as his Senatorial ambition and that of other PDP candidates.
He said his decision to have Udom Emmanuel succeed him as governor was because of his outstanding track-record in financial management and impeccable administrative and business acumen which he hoped would be translated to attract investments to the state.
“Let me assure you that I will work with Udom to ensure that the lives of our children are touched positively” Akpabio stressed hoping that Udom would allow his financial technocracy to permeate the various sectors of the state’s economy.
