I Remain A Staunch PDP Member, But Will Continue to Support President Tinubu’s Administration – Gov. Umo Eno

Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, in a very exciting and impassioned speech while receiving defectors from other political parties in the state into PDP, spoke of his spirit of inclusivity and the kind of a partyman he is.

“A lot of people have asked repeatedly: Are you in PDP? Yes! I am in PDP but my PDP is not the type that insults people. So I want to beg you as you come back, one of the things you must drop is let’s not attack leaders. 

“From the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, we will and must show him support and respect.That is the PDP I run. Pastor Umo Eno
The Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State.

“We don’t attack leadership because what goes round comes round. 

“If I have a suggestion, I have access to the President, we will go and give our suggestions. We will support our leaders and we will not fight them. 

“I am a pastor trained to respect people and we must continue to show that  all-important character of humility, of compassion and of respect to constituted authority. 

“That, I shall continue to do. I and our Party will continue to collaborate with the Centre so that we can bring dividends of Democracy to Akwa Ibom. I will not fight the Centre. Nobody will fight the Centre. That is the point and now that you are coming back, that is what we will maintain. We will give peace a chance.

“The last administration that God made me to take over from was a peaceful administration and so there is a continuity.

 “Without peace, there can be no progress. So please for those of you that were abusing us, don’t bring that spirit of abuse and begin to abuse people in authority. Please drop that spirit and let’s work together. We have only one President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and we owe  him our allegiance.

“We must show respect, decency and loyalty. That’s why, everything that the President had promised us, God will touch his heart and he will give it to us. You don’t abuse somebody and then turn round and want to go and benefit from the person. Is that good?

“But for PDP, we are standing firm in PDP in Akwa Ibom State. Don’t let anybody deceive you. Don’t attend any illegal meetings, don’t go. They call you in the night and say come to this place, someone wants to see you. That is a lie. 

“This is me, and I will take care of you in Akwa Ibom. Don’t allow anyone to deceive you.

“When we give you good governance, that is what we mean by taking care of you. We are giving out free food through palliatives. 

“We are creating jobs and ensuring that our young ones have something to do. 

“You voted for good governance and I am sacrificing everything to ensure that we do good to our people.”
