The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Akwa Ibom chapter, Pastor Umo Eno has urged the people not to be carried away by vague promises, rhetoric and populism by some candidates seeking to score cheap political points in the 2023 elections.
He said they should rather consider competence and pragmatism in making a choice of their candidate.
Eno stated this on Tuesday during the party’s governorship flag-off campaigns held at the Nest of Champions International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
He said, “Fellow Akwaibomites, this election is beyond populism, rhetoric and vague promises but pragmatism, capacity and making hard choices.
“It is your choice to have a proven leader who has created jobs for many of our youths versus those who only use the youths for thuggery and violence when it suits their selfish purposes.”
In his speech entitled, “My contract with Akwa Ibom people”, the guber candidate said he would run an issue based campaigns devoid of propaganda, blackmail and mudslinging where peace, security and all round development witnessed in the State would be sustained.
He added, “This election is about humility, and Godliness and the need to respect our common humanity and govern with Christian values, versus those who see power as a sense of entitlement. Power is given to those whom God has qualified and not those who arrogantly qualify themselves.”
