Groups, Stakeholders grumble over delayed appointments in A’Ibom

By Paulinus Nta

People’s Democratic Party stakeholders and past officers, who were involved in the last general elections in Akwa Ibom are running out of patience over what they described as delayed constitution of boards, parastatals and government appointments .

They are even more disturbed over the governor’s political romance with the Senate president and the All Progressives Congress stakeholders in the state.

An officer of Maintain Peace Movement, the 2023 PDP campaign organization in the state, Otuekong Patrick Effiong said there was nothing fundamentally wrong in relating with the Senate president and other stakeholders of the APC, but the governor should put his house in order first.

He said the governor’s body language and political behaviour lend credence to the rumour that he might contest for his second term on the platform of APC.

He however appreciated the Gov. Umo Eno for breaking the generational jinx of political inclusiveness, and for proving that politics can be played without bitterness.
Again, he described the governor as closest, dead or alive, to the universal definition of a gentleman, but advised him make hays while the sun shines.

Speaking in the same vein, a member of the Connect Initiative, Iniobong Ekpenyong said the governor is robbing Peter to pay Paul According to him, it is unfair to run a state for one year without boards and other sensitive appointments. ” The way I see, there’s something going on , which we do not know. Whatever it is, let it not collapse the PDP in 2027”

While corroborating the previous speakers that the governor has taken too long to appreciate the political groups and ward Leaders, a Chieftain of the PDP and leader of the PDP Ward leaders Forum said they also have their counter surprise, should they be taken unawares like when God’swill Akpabio took the PDP by storm in 2018.
