YPP flags-off National Assembly Campaigns in Akwa Ibom state; OBA dedicate national award to Akwa Ibom people

The Young Progressives Party [YPP] in Akwa Ibom State has promised the Akwa Ibom people that with YPP on the saddle in 2023, there is the hope of multiple and equitable spread of democratic dividend across the 31 council areas of the state.

This assurance was given by the party Chairman, Apostle Nyeneime Andy during the flag-off of the National Assembly campaigns along with the presentation of flags to the three senatorial candidates and nine House of Representatives candidates, held at the Qua Iboe Church ground, Eket.

According to him, his confidence of the party taking over Akwa Ibom state come 2023 stems from the level of resilience and defiance of the party and Akwa Ibom in the face of crude intimidations from state actors.

“As a party, we have been intimidated, but with God, we are stronger. Though some people have tried to make themselves God, Akwa Ibom people have taken the decision that there is no other religion apart from Christianity, and we worship no one apart from God.

“Today, we are presenting the flags to our candidates. They are those we have assessed before we presented them as candidates. They all have their WAEC certificates”.

Explaining the logo of the party, he said that, the green leaves “signify growth, progress, prosperity”.

Andy assured supporters of the party that despite the effort by the other parties, the YPP would be victorious, stressing, “Their money will fail in 2023. Their structure will fail. Akwa Ibom is for YPP. I can assure you all our candidates will deliver”.

Speaking at the event, the Director General of Akwa Ubok Abasi Campaign Council, Pastor Sunny Ibuot, said 2023 would be “the first time, in Akwa Ibom, the people would have the privilege to come out and elect their own Governor”, urging the people of the state not to joke with the opportunity.

In his remark, the chairman of the Campaign Council, Sir Emem Akpabio, thanked God for giving Akwa Ibom a party like the YPP.

YPP has come to change the dynamics. Akwa Ibom will be better. YPP will stop the reign of poverty, YPP will stop the reign of hunger”, he assured.

Reading from Leviticus 26:36, he said “the sound of a shaken leaves” shall chase away poverty, hardship, and bad governance in the state, describing the gubernatorial candidate of the YPP, Senator Bassey Albert as one who would proffer solutions to the problems of Akwa Ibom people.

“This is the man that the youths want, the one that the widows want, the one that the students want. We are talking about the one that will serve you well”.

Earlier, Senator Bassey Albert Akpan, the governorship candidate of the YPP, stressed that with YPP, the story of the youths of Akwa Ibom State would change.

“They have destroyed you in the last seven years, but with YPP, your story will change for the better. Akwa Ibom, weep no more. God has sent us help and never shall we remain the same. Through YPP, Akwa Ibom will not seek God in vain, whatever happens in the state was made to happen so that Akwa Ibom people could differentiate between good and bad government. “God has given you the mandate to choose a good government, the mandate is in your hands, it is your Voters Cards”, he said.

OBA, as the governorship candidate is fondly called, used the opportunity to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for honouring him with the national award of CON, noting that, “national honour is dedicated to the Akwa Ibom people”.

He frowned at the situation where the people have been denied dividends of democracy which is their patrimony, adding, “In the last seven and a half years, Akwa Ibom has witnessed the greatest season of frustration, hunger, and starvation”.

He urged the people to elect all senatorial and House of Representatives candidates of the YPP in the next year’s elections, assuring that they have all qualifications to serve the Akwa Ibom people well.
