Speaking in Abuja, Udam said President Jonathan had done well to deserve a second term considering the massive transformation witnessed in all sectors of the economy.
He disclosed that there was urgent need for the current tempo of development across the country to be sustained.
“It is a bad logic to change a winning team midway into the match,” said Udam.
Udam, was visibly excited about his hopes and aspirations of being elected to the National Assembly to join President Jonathan in transforming the nation through qualitative representation.
“My desire is to give quality representation to the people of Ogoja/Yala federal constituency in the National Assembly in 2015. I have a clear vision and my mission is solid,” he said.
He promised to emancipate the youth by empowering them with relevant skills that will position them strategically and enhance their employability with ease.
“Those with entrepreneurial skills are driving the economy now. Empowerment is not all about buying cars and motorbikes for youths. It is about helping them acquire skills that will make them stand on their own and even employ others," he said.
"I believe in empowerment. I have done before when I was the Executive Secretary of Ogoja Urban Development Authority where I employed over 600 workers and I know how many families were touched by that single move.”
He promised to carry quarterly Constituency town hall meetings to enable him be in touch with the people.
Udam is the leading candidate to win the party's primaries scheduled for December.
