Confab delegate insists on zoning

Former Minister of Lands and Housing, Chief Nduese Essien has again called on the people of Akwa Ibom State to respect and accommodate the demand of Eket senatorial district to produce the state’s governor in 2015.

Chief Essien, who spoke at the reception in honour of Obong Victor Attah, former governor of the state, by his Ibibio kinsmen in Uyo, said in appreciating the foundation Attah laid for a peaceful and stable state, Akwa Ibom people must learn to tolerate and love one another.

He said: “As we celebrate this great leader of Akwa Ibom State and Nigeria, we should not forget our common heritage as a people whether Ibibio, Annang, Oron, Eket, Ibeno, Obolo and so on, we share common ancestry and a bond that has fired us to build a great state that all of us are proud to identify with.”

Making a case for Eket senatorial district to produce Governor Godswill Akpabio’s successor in 2015, Essien said such action will further add value to the foundation which Obong Attah laid for the state.

Essien, who was a delegate to the just-concluded national conference, said: “While we recognise and celebrate Obong Attah for what he did at the conference, I want to say without fear of contradiction that he laid the foundation upon which the present Governor Akpabio has anchored his strategic infrastructural development of Akwa Ibom State.
He said: “It is time for Attah and other compatriots to reconcile and work together to bring peace and development to the state.”
