2015 guber: We will look at you, Uyo tells Ita Udoh
Pastor Ita Umo Udoh had been given assurance by stakeholders and the political leadership of Uyo Local Government Area. During a consultation visit to Obong Maurice Ebong and others, Pastor Ita Umo Udoh who stormed the residence of the Uyo political leaders with a mammoth crowd of supporters informed that he had resigned his position from the state Exco as a commissioner. He told the Elders of Uyo that he is interested in the race to succeed Governor Godswill Akpabio because he wants to take Akwa Ibom State to another level from where the Governor Godswill Akpabio will end by 2015. 

He said, “My Elders and political leaders, I come to you today because I need your support to help me consolidate on the gains of the democracy of the present administration, I want to appeal to you to please see me as your son and adopt me for the position of the governorship of our great state which will be vacant by May 29 2015.  Let me inform you that I am ably qualified to step into that office and I am using this opportunity to solicit your support and cooperation. And I am assuring you that. I will not disappoint. I have heard that perhaps you have adopted an aspirant, please see me as an option and together we will make Akwa Ibom Proud”.

Speaking further, Pastor Ita Udoh described himself as a man who understands the workings of leadership and that he will not fail the people. He said having been in the business sector, the civil service sector and the public sector, that he has all it takes to ensure that he takes Akwa Ibom State to the land of fulfillment if he is supported to emerge the PDP flagbearer and subsequently the Governor of the state by May 29, 2015.

Responding, the Elders of the forum which had Obong Maurice Ebong as Chairman and leader, Obong Rita Akpan, Obong Barr Aniedi Ndem, Elder Enefiok Ekefre, Obong Ekiko all had kind words for Ita Udoh. They commended him for the courage he has in resigning and seeking the Governorship position of Akwa Ibom state. They informed him that his coming to consult Uyo Elders is a prove that he has regards for the harbingers of the politics of Akwa Ibom state. 

Obong Rita Akpan and Elder Ekefre were very direct when they hinted that although he took a long time before coming to consult them that he was going to be looked at. The Uyo Elders mentioned to Ita Udoh that Governor Akpabio had earlier informed them of his willingness to hand over power to Umana Umana but that ever since the state Governor changed his mind on the former SSG that they are yet to be briefed. They posited that Ita Udoh is a brave politician and assured him of their support. They said, “When the chips are down, we will look at you. You are an Ibibio son and we will support you”.

Before the visit to Uyo Elders, Ita Udoh had earlier consulted the PDP in Nsit Ubium Local Government Area where he was equally received amidst fanfare and also assured of support.
