Abuja - The Akwa Ibom State has called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) to put behind their electoral setback and support the state’s people-centric programmes aimed at building the state.

APC is contesting the election of Governor Udom Emmanuel citing irregularities.

Ekerete Udoh, Chief Press Secretary to state governor, however said his administration had been drawn to the press release by the APC dated Tuesday finally agreed that elections took place in the Akwa Ibom State.

“Let me on behalf of the 5 million people of Akwa Ibom State thank the All Progressives Congress (APC) for on April 11, and that Udom Emmanuel of the PDP was massively and overwhelmingly voted into office as the Governor of our dear State. With this acknowledgement, I hope the APC can now join hands to build our State and support the people-centric programmes of the Udom Emmanuel administration,” Udoh stated.

Udoh advised APC should thus stop “chasing shadows.”

“Akwa Ibom State is under the able hands of an internationally recognized and celebrated technocrat and banker extra-ordinaire, and Governor Udom Emmanuel is deploying his vast contacts and language of communications within the financial world to draw investors to the state.”
