Commissioner for Special Duties and Aviation Development, Mr. Akan Okon, has extolled New Breed’s unalloyed support for the success of Governor Udom Emmanuel and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
Mr. Okon, who made this known at the weekend in Mbiatok Itam, Itu Local Government Area, when members of the Itu Chapter of New Breed, a socio-political group whose members are drawn from all sectors of life within and outside Nigeria working towards sustainable development and industrialization of Akwa Ibom and Nigeria, visited him.
The Commissioner thanked the group for their show of love, saying “the gathering has shown that you are all PDP faithful. This has also confirmed that Akwa Ibom could not have been luckier to have Governor Udom Emmanuel. His policy thrust is anchored on functional industrialization. He must be supported for a second term. PDP must be supported.”
He assured the group that the Udom Emmanuel-led administration will continue to run an all-inclusive government for the good and progress of Akwa Ibom.
Speaking, the National Coordinator of the group, Mr. Itoro Okon, said the group’s programme for 2019, Men-On-Ground, is geared towards the success of Governor Udom Emmanuel and the PDP at the polls.
He said the group, whose ideology is hinged on the Dakkada philosophy of the Udom Emmanuel’s administration, was poised to ensuring “Akwa Ibom State’s journey to greatness is not distracted. We will ensure PDP takes over its pride of place in 2019. We are all out for Governor Udom Emmanuel for equity, justice and fairness.”
“New Breed is out on political evangelism to canvass support for Governor Udom Emmanuel and the PDP in 2019. Our members are holders of Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC), so we will deliver,” he added.
The group also appealed for financial assistance from the Commissioner to enable its purchase customized T-shirts, face-caps and Identity Card for all its members.
Mr. Ekemini Essiah, an upcoming music star from the area also thrilled the gathering with his about-to-be launched song, Fik Ubok Nor Udom.
