Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Aniekan Bassey, has lauded the tireless contributions of faithful and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, saying “the Permanent Secretariat Complex of the party is a testament to the good use of members’ dues and levies.”
The Speaker, who made this known on Saturday shortly after the inauguration ceremony in Uyo, urged members of the party within and outside the country to emulate Akwa Ibom State for the progress of PDP.
He saluted the dedication, commitment and doggedness of the outgoing State Executive, saying “indeed, the Lord has been your strength.”
Rt. Hon. thanked the leader of the party in the state, Governor Udom Emmanuel, for inaugurating a state-of-the-art Secretariat for the State Chapter of PDP, adding that “this edifice is a sign of good governance and a proof that Akwa Ibom State is a stronghold of the PDP.”
While charging the newly elected State Executive, led by Obong Udo Ekpenyong, to ensure it continues its established winning streak in the state, the Speaker said “the Secretariat is a great achievement to the Udom Emmanuel-led PDP.”
He also thanked the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, and his team, for the honour done Akwa Ibom State, assuring that the state will continue to be Nigeria’s model of political party.
