Don’t vote for politicians that’ll bury Nigeria, Emmanuel cautions

2 weeks ago

Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, yesterday, cautioned the electorate against voting for politicians that would further destroy the country.

He said the warning became necessary as the country was in a critical stage of her economic and political development and required right leadership to save it from eventual collapse.

Emmanuel stated this in Abuja while declaring open a four-day retreat organised by the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Akwa Ibom State chapter with the theme: ‘In search of a better Nigeria through Responsible Journalism” held at Roses Regency Hotels and Suites, Wuye District, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja

The governor, who was represented by his commissioner of Information and Strategy, Mr. Ini Ememobong, said that any attempt to make wrong choice in 2023 would take the country many years back.

In his goodwill message, the Chairman of Akwa Ibom State chapter of NUJ, Amos Etuk, lamented government’s failure to recognise the role of the media in building a better Nigeria.

He said: “Politicians seeking our votes have dismissed our relevance, they forget that all of us seated here today and millions across 774 council in the country are the structures needed to give our country the best in the next few months.”

Earlier in his welcome address, Chairman of Correspondents Chapel, Idongesit Ashameri, pointed out that the retreat was to remind journalists of their role in holding political leaders accountable and reminding them of their promises to the people.
