Akwa Ibom: APC governorshp candidate, Udofia, promises to tackle unemployment

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom state, Obong Akanimo Udofia, has promised to enthrone shared prosperity for the people of the state.

The APC candidate said this at the Victor Attah International Airport in Uyo when he was received by his supporters, well-wishers and party faithful who came out in their numbers to receive him in the aftermath of his recent victory at the Court of Appeal in Abuja where his nomination as the candidate of APC was upheld in a landmark ruling.

He decried the prevailing unemployment and underemployment plaguing the state especially among her youth population.

Udofia promised that his administration when elected will stimulate growth and development to attain shared prosperity by investment in human capital development and broadening the economy of the state.

He described his victory at the Court of Appeal as an act of God and a validation of the yearnings and aspirations of the people for a better Akwa Ibom that works for all.

The candidate assured them that he will never let them down, even as he called on all progressive minded Akwa Ibom people across party lines to join the movement to rescue the state “from leadership without values.”
