Another PDP top-brass greets Tinubu as Atiku readies press conference Monday

Gov. Umo Eno

AKWA Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has become another chieftain of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to smile at President Bola Ahmed Tinubu after the Supreme Court of Nigeria confirmed properly elected.
Only yesterday, former President Gooluck Jonathan went to see Tinubu, thereafter he told Journalists the time to move forward together as Nigerians is now.
Gov. Eno in congratulations says with Tinubu’s victory at the apex court, all the litigations that trailed the President’s emergence at the February 25, 2023 election are over.
He pledges that though Akwa Ibom is a PDP state, his government would continue to align with Tinubu’s administration to attract development to Akwa Ibom.
The governor spoke during a “Thank You Meeting” with Christian leaders in the state, in the Banquet Hall, Government House, Uyo, on Friday.
He reassures the group of his commitment to lead a united and prosperous state, to justify the confidence the church and entire people of the state reposed in him during the last gubernatorial election.
Eno says though the country is going through hardship occasioned by the removal of oil subsidy, his administration would ensure that every available resource is not wasted on frivolities but deployed for optimal benefits of the generality of the people.
“When I say there is no money, I mean there is no money to throw around but there is money to do good things. There is money to do every good thing.
“Money to do investments will not be a problem in this state. Money by itself is a scarce commodity. If you throw money around like that, it will lose its value”.
The governor thanked the clergymen for not allowing divisive ethnic sentiments to saturate the church community, urging them to strive to keep the Church united, irrespective of political or ethnic affiliations, to be in sync with his administration’s disposition.
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) state chairman Bishop Christian Nyong says the Church community is impressed with Pastor Eno’s leadership strides.
The CAN leader told the governor that the meeting was a representation of the various blocks that constitute the Church community in the state and would engender greater support of Christians towards the success of the administration now being led by one of their own.
