Must read

Senator Aloysius Etok has sued for unity among Elders of Peoples Democratic Party, Ediene 2, Ikono Local Government Area

He advised tkem to deliberately stay away from acts capable of causing disaffection and divisive tendencies among them in the ward as they continue to hope for the future.

The charge was contained in a speech made by Senator Aloysius Etok during the meeting of the Forum at the Edem Iyere’s country home of Engr. Nsini Nkopuruk who is the Chairman PDP Elders Forum, Ediene 2, ward 11, Ikono Local Government Area

Senator Etok used the occasion to thank Elders of the ward for their selfless sacrifices and commitments in protecting and stoutly defending the principles and ideals of the Peoples Democratic Party in the ward and by extension sustaining the philosophy of the founding fathers of the party, which was primarily to win elections at all levels for the party. The attendant faith in the party, according to the highly experienced and celebrated legislator, will certainly translate into massive infrastructure and human development in the ward.

On the cases of abandoned road projects and under-development of the ward, Senator Etok maintained that the State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has assured of the reconstruction of all the roads and projects that were unjustly abandoned by the previous administration. “It is just a matter of time, Ediene Usung Itu, ward 11, will experience massive turn-around of human and infrastructural development, courtesy of the Government of Gov. Udom Emmanuel” Senator Etok disclosed.
