The Commissioner for Lands and Water Resources, Akwa Ibom State, Umo Eno, has advised others that have declared interest in the race for governorship in the State to go about their consultations and be prepared for party primary.
Eno who made the remark in Uyo, while fielding questions from newsmen on Udom’s decision to support his aspiration after unveiling a weekly news tabloid, said his recent endorsement by Governor Udom Emmanuel, should not stop other aspirants from contesting.
He advised others that have declared interest in the race to go about their consultations and be prepared for party primary, which would throw up the flag bearer of the party.
He stressed that Akwa Ibom needs a Governor that would sustain the achievements of the current administration, and cautioned the people against making wrong decision capable of eroding the gains so far attained in the state.
His words: “Everybody complaining today was actually looking for Emmanuel’s endorsement and the governor can only endorse one person.
“The governor has the right to endorse anybody he feels like endorsing, and that does not stop others from aspiring. He has not stopped anyone from contesting.”
