Why I’ll not oppose Tinubu’s administration – Eno

Akwa Ibom state governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has said that despite being a staunch member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he will not oppose President Bola Tinubu’s government.

The governor made the assertion when receiving thousands of defectors from opposition parties into the ruling PDP in the state weekend in Uyo, the state capital.

He said he was trained to respect people ,show humility, compassion, and respect to constituted authority.

The defectors comprised former top office holders, such as the former House of Representatives member, representing Oruk Anam, Ukanafun Federal Constituency, Hon. Emmanuel Ukoette, former state APC publicity secretary, Nkereuwem Enyongekere, former Commissioner for Science and Technology, Hon. Samuel Effanga, former Youth Leader of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Ubong Edem; former transition chairman of Ukanafun local government area, Abasiono Udonfuk; among others from the All Progressives Congress (APC), YPP, New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), and Social Democratic Party (SDP).

Governor Eno, in a very exciting speech, while receiving the defectors, spoke of his spirit of inclusivity.

“A lot of people have asked repeatedly: Are you in PDP? Yes! I am in PDP but my PDP is not the type that insults people. So, I want to beg you as you come back, one of the things you must drop is lets not attack leaders.

“From the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, we will and must show him support and respect. That is the PDP I run. We don’t attack leadership because what goes around, comes around.

“If I have a suggestion, I have access to the president, we will go and give our suggestions. We will support our leaders and we will not fight them,” he said.
