A’ Ibom group endorses Jonathan for re -election

The Akwa Ibom Goodluck Movement ( AKGM ) , one of the

socio – political groups in the state, has called on President

Goodluck Jonathan to run for a second term in office in 2015 .

In a release by the group signed by its Director General , Hon.

Ekere Afia , and made available to our correspondent in Uyo ,

the group said the reason for the support and subsequent

endorsement of President Jonathan was based on his

laudable achievements .

The group said it was the vision of Akwa Ibom people to

ensure the re – election of Jonathan , whom it described as “a

square peg in a square hole .

It also seeks to install the Leader of the State House of

Assembly , Okpolupm Etteh, whom Afia described as a pan –

Akwa Ibom son, as the next Governor of Akwa Ibom State in

2015 .

“ What we have seen today is the handwork of God. The

politics of the making of President and Governor is not a

marketplace thing . It is done by the kingmakers . Today , we

have been made the king makers. Today , we have been made

mighty men of valour . Let us go in that our might,” he said .

On his part, Director of Publicity / Media , Mr . Nkeneke Efo ,

explained that the support and subsequent endorsement of

Jonathan for a re -election and Etteh for Governor was

supported by all 31 members of the Central Working

Committee ( CWC) , 31 local government chapter co – ordinators,

and elders of the group.

He said the calibre of those that constitute the group was an

indication that the success of the project was sure and that

democracy had come to stay in the country .
