A group, REALITY (N.E.A.R) has endorsed the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Governor (APC) Mr. Obong Nsima Ekere as the next governor of the state.
Coordinator of the group, Mrs. Motema Udoh, explained that the endorsement was based on the track record of the candidates.
Speaking to a group of newsmen after the (Know Your Candidate) door to door rally in Uyo, Mrs. Udoh who also sits as a Director on the Board of Proactive Women Initiative (PWI), commended Mr. Ekere for clearly articulating the problems faced especially by the most vulnerable in the society.
She further stated that the strategic focus of the incoming administration will certainly build a better tomorrow filled with opportunities, unity and hope for all Akwa Ibom people.
The coordinator of N.E.A.R Group noted that Mr. Ekere’s policies and programs are founded on social justice and equality for all and his vision for our collective prosperity is anchored on five thematic areas which he christened the Five Pillars of Change.
She therefore called on women, youths, the most vulnerable in the society and all those who are often affected by poor policies of government to come out in support of Mr. Ekere as the next governor of the state.
According to her, a vote for him will bring about economic prosperity, infrastructure and rural development, and most importantly, governance and institutional reforms.
The group further disclosed its intention to hold a similar rally in the remaining senatorial districts before the general elections.
