That we pleasantly welcome the inspired gesture of the highly reputable Media Organisation and thank the Proprietor, Ahmed Isah, and his team as well as all Nigerians who contributed towards the purchase of the form.

That the choice of Governor Emmanuel by the Brekete Family is not an exercise of frivolity but a well-thought-out action having considered the sterling performance of Governor Udom Emmanuel in the last seven years and his legacies of peace, Industrialisation,  wealth creation,  infrastructural development, economic growth, healthcare delivery,  sports, and agriculture among others.

That Governor Udom Emmanuel has demonstrated capacity,  character, competence, and vision which is what Nigeria needs in these critical times from a leader to steer her out of the woods with the near-total collapse in National security and economy where he has excelled in running the State successfully through two economic depressions and the devastating Covid-19 pandemic.

That we enjoin every Patriotic Nigerian to rise above ethnic,  political,  religious, and regional biases to rally around the clarion summons to destiny initiated by Brekete Family and reinforce pressure on Governor Udom Emmanuel to not only accept the form and responsibility but immediately declare interest in the Presidential race to salvage this country come 2023.

That we commend Governor Udom Emmanuel who has been recognised as one of the 100 inspiring individuals in Africa in the 2021 African Regional Awards for earning the confidence of the Brekete Family which resonates with the massive support base he has enjoyed in Akwa Ibom State and beyond for his superior performance.

As a forum, we believe that Governor Udom Emmanuel has what it takes to salvage Nigeria from the untold socio-economic hardship that has been visited on Nigerians in the last seven years

That we commend Governor Emmanuel’s efforts in stabilizing Akwa-Ibom state,  by creating the enabling peaceful atmosphere which is consolidated by his launch of the Maintain Peace Movement,  MPM,  that have campaigned for harmonious living and political inclusiveness in our multifarious state.

That the Forum believes in Governor Emmanuel’s capacity to replicate the successes he has recorded in human capital development and in critical sectors, including manufacturing, food production, aviation, maritime, real estate, power generation, education, healthcare, hospitality, and peace especially in Nigeria if elected President and Commander in Chief.

His prudence in managing the resources of Akwa Ibom State goes to show that with the right type of leadership, our nation can indeed achieve success in such critical areas.

The Forum aligns totally with the earlier recommendations made by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in counseling the Federal Government to understudy Governor Emmanuel’s leadership template in Akwa-Ibom as a model for national cohesion, and rapid economic recovery, job creation, infrastructural development, ventures in specialized sectors. We believe that Governor Udom Emmanuel is the right person to engender these successes.

We, therefore, join the countless millions of our countrymen and women in congratulating Governor Emmanuel on the presentation of the Presidential Nomination/ expression of interest forms and also urge him to accept the clarion call to offer himself to serve our beleaguered but beloved country.
