The All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Umana Okon Umana, has promised to ensure that the party wins most elective positions at all levels in the 2015 general elections.
Speaking with journalists yesterday in Uyo, the state capital, Umana noted that with the migration of many Akwa Ibom electorate to APC in their desire for change, he has no doubt that all candidates of the party will emerge victorious at the 2015 polls.
The governorship candidate also expressed gratitude to the party for creating a level playing ground for all eligible aspirants in the just concluded primaries.
He said: “As you know very well, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP decided to exclude two senatorial districts in Akwa Ibom State from their contest and for the governorship at the level of the primaries. Certainly that is undemocratic and unconstitutional. I must also add that the primary reason we had to leave the PDP was because of the lack of internal democracy in the party.
“So, I thank the leadership of my party at the national, state, local government, and at the ward levels for the very warm way they embraced me and my supporters who left the PDP to join the APC. We are happy that we have a new platform which is anchored on the tenets of democratic principles and embraces all who are eligible to contest for any position.
“We are done with the primaries and we are back as one united party, and there is no victor, there is no vanquished”.
