Governor Udom Emmanuel has again reiterated the very fact that it’s too early to debate the difficulty of succession maintaining that he’s committed to working hard to uplift the living standards of the downtrodden and not subsequent election.
The Governor made this known while fielding questions from a journalist who had sought his opinion on the difficulty of succession “A good leader thinks of subsequent generation and not subsequent elections. As at today, nobody has consulted me on his or her ambition. This, altogether honesty, isn’t the time for such issue; we would like to figure and reposition this State for rapid economic process .
I think it’s very unfair on a part of the electorate who just only last year, had elected us to varied offices to figure for them, for us to now begin to speak about subsequent elections. I even have always said that power belongs to God and ONLY HE alone will determine who my successor would be.
I even have not anointed anyone to be my successor, so my advice to those that are angling surely positions is that they ought to join us to place the building blocks of sustainable economic process for our people and not cause unneeded and unhelpful distractions.
Look at the new reality that the Covid-19 pandemic nic has presented; the economic challenges it’s thrown up, this is often the time for all patriotic son and daughter of this blessed State to return together and work with us to still reposition our State. it’s too early within the day to start to speak about 2023.”
