Uyo - Two Board of Trustees (BoT) members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have backed the governorship candidate of the opposition party in Akwa Ibom state, Umana Okon Umana of the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports Thisday.
The BoT members are the former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Victor Attah and former Petroleum Minister, Don Etiebiet.
They said they are backing Umana in the April 11 governorship election in the state because the PDP candidate, Udom Emmanuel was not nominated by the party but by an individual.
