Akwa State Governor and leader of the PDP in the State, Mr Udom Emmanuel has maintained that the myriads of challenges plaguing the nation at this time could only be surmounted with the right leadership in place.

The Governor said with the accolades Nigerians continue to give to the superlative performances of Governors elected on the platform of the PDP, it was clear that Peoples Democratic Party is a party driven by the ideologies of people-centric progress and development.

“Go around this nation, Nigerians have come to admit with commendation, that the only Governors commissioning projects and delivering unmatched performances in line with the electioneering promises and collective aspirations of their people are Governors elected on the platform of the PDP. I tell you that this is not a coincidence, our party the PDP has established for itself a reputation of electing people who strive against daunting odds to perform creditably.”

The Akwa Ibom State Chief Executive while speaking on the political development in Cross River said “I must commend eminent indigenes of Cross Rivers state for demonstrating a firm resolve to stay back in the PDP at this time. The incontrovertible truth remains that if these eminent people had defected, it would have meant that Cross River as a state has lost the PDP and not that that the PDP has lost Cross River.”
Governor Emmanuel also used the occasion to re-echo on the need for the speedy passage of the electoral act as this was more expedient and fundamental at this time.

The Akwa Ibom state Governor while congratulating the South-South Zonal Exco members on their success at the polls, charged them to commit their energies into deepening the footprints of the PDP in the South-South region.

Earlier, the PDP National Vice Chairman, South-South, Chief Dan Orbih while addressing Governor Emmanuel said the visit to Akwa Ibom was a fallout of the Exco’s decision to tour the States in South-South Zone, adding that with the peaceful ambience of Akwa ibom State, the economic-engendering infrastructure in the State and futuristic development programmes by the Governor Emmanuel’s administration, Akwa Ibom stays as model in transformational leadership in Nigeria.

Chief Orbih while lamenting the rising spate of insecurity in the nation and the economic plagues that Nigerians have been forced to bear, noted that Nigerians have come to discover that they are better off with the PDP.

He informed Governor Emmanuel that the South-South Exco of the PDP were fully in support of the resolutions reached by PDP Governors on issues of national interest stressing that the Exco will continue to support efforts by the PDP Governors to provide quality leadership to people of the various states.

Governors Are The Cause of The Country’s Problems – President Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari has accused governors of causing the country so much pain as a result of the strike of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Judiciary workers had embarked on a 64-day strike over the refusal of governors to implement the autonomy for the state judiciary.

Last year, President Muhammadu Buhari had signed the Executive Order 10 for the enforcement of the autonomy of the judiciary but the 36 governors kicked against the order.

When he played host to the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) at the State House, Abuja, on Friday, the president spoke on his commitment to devolving of power to the people.

“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary. Unfortunately, this was met with some resistance at the state level and led to a more than two months strike action that has caused the country a lot of pain.

“Luckily the National Assembly has nearly completed the constitutional review process, which I hope would address some of the burning issues agitating the minds of our people.’’

The president also spoke about the effect of the strike, lamenting its security implication.

“Fortunately, this strike has been called off and prosecution of some of these people (those behind insecurity) would soon commence, while our security agencies expand their network in closing in on the others,’’ he added.

NIREC was led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Supo Ayokunle.
