INEC would be better if the have more of Iginis in the commission.

“We congratulate Governor Udom Emmanuel is this uncommon victory. Thank you for being that Moses that is taking Akwa Ibom people out of bondage. Thank you for breaking jinx that no Onna man had ever gone for second term as governor.

“Gentlemen, it may please you to know that I and others started this struggle since 2010. I have denied myself life’s frenzies. Several times, hired assassins were sent to exterminate me and members of my family. My rights have been denied, friends who never believed in this struggle have deserted me.

“I cannot forget those who died in the process of this struggle, my friends who lost their parents and my fellow journeymen who survived bullet wounds. My God comfort them all”.

TEXT OF PRESS STATEMEMT BY AKWA IBOM LIBERATION MOVEMENT, UYO, AKWA IBOM STATE

GENTLMEN OF THE PRESS

Thank You, Akwa Ibomites.

As the elections wind down, let us use this opportunity to appreciate the people of Akwa Ibom state for liberating themselves through the sanctity of ballot box. There had never been a time like this when Akwa Ibom people shunned ethnic differences and collectively put an end to pangs of tyranny, orchestrated by one man who enthroned himself as a god over the affairs of the people.

We appreciate the impartial conduct of personnel of the Department of State Services, DSS, during the election. This agency stood out among all the security agencies who participated in the elections.

We cannot forget the enormous contributions of honest and sincere staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the state who ensured every vote counted. Particularly, we appreciate the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Mike Igini for his stand. We are glad that in the midst of corruption, some persons still maintain their integrity. INEC would be better if it has more of Iginis in the commission.

We congratulate Governor Udom Emmanuel on his reelection. Congratulations for being that Moses that is taking Akwa Ibom people out of bondage. Congratulations for breaking jinx that no man from Onna had ever done a second term as governor.

While the people of the state still bask in the euphoria of celebration of the election victory, we urge Governor Udom Emmanuel to deliver on the mandate given him by Akwa Ibom people.

A time has come for the Governor to reciprocate the sacrifice and labour exhibited by Akwa Ibom people to vote him into power, by engaging in more life-touching projects.

Gentlemen, it may please you to know that I and others started this struggle since 2010. I have denied myself life’s frenzies. Several times, hired assassins were sent to exterminate me and members of my family. My rights have been denied, friends who never believed in this struggle have deserted me.

I can not forget those who died in the process of this struggle, my friends who lost their parents and my fellow journeymen who survived bullet wounds. May God comfort them all.

I can not also forget journalists who have been imprisoned for standing firm in their resolve to end this suffering.

We are glad the end has come and a new era has begun.

Congratulations to every Akwa Ibomites at home and abroad for standing fame and ensuring the total freedom of our dear state.”
