Governor Udom Emmanuel has urged citizens of the State to go out and vote in tomorrow’s Presidential and National Assembly elections assuring the people of their safety, as they exercise their civic rights. In a release signed by his Chief Press Secretary and Senior Special Assistant, Media, Ekerete Udoh, the Governor enjoined the people to eschew any form of violence in the exercise of this civic duty.
“Tomorrow as you go out to vote, be civil and peaceful, do not be intimidated by the presence of the security personnel at your polling units; they are there to maintain law and order. Casting your votes is a Constitutionally protected right of citizenship and you should not be afraid to exercise this onerous civic responsibility. I beseech you therefore, to ensure that in the exercise this onerous task, you maintain the peace and harmony that form the building blocks of our identity as a people.
I enjoin our youths to eschew violence.
We are all brothers and sisters who are wholly invested in the Akwa Ibom Project. No political office should cost the loss of life of a single Akwa Ibom child. Akwa Ibom is known to be a safe, secure and peaceful State and I enjoin every citizen and resident to contribute to upholding these essential elements that define us as a people.
I want to assure the visitors to our State and other election observers that their safety is guaranteed
God bless Akwa Ibom State, God bless Nigeria.
