Udom Emmanuel Is Being Urged To Declare For President In 2023
For Friday, January 7, some Nigerians called on Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom to run for president in 2023 in order to imitate his industrialization agenda and use his inventive financial and economic brilliance to save the Nigerian economy.
This was one among the comments that followed the governor’ s live interview on Brekete Family Radio Live Talk Show in Abuja.
The Ordinary President, Ahmed Isah, hosts the Brekete Family show on Human Rights Radio 101. 1 FM in Abuja.
Governor Emmanuel spoke about his accomplishments over the last six years as well as the state of the nation.
Following his tremendous accomplishments as governor over the last six years, Isah and other phone- in callers urged him to run for president in 2023, offering to rally regular Nigerians to contribute monies to cover the electioneering costs.
In his own words:
” Now we’ re pleading with you. Soon we’ ll lead a massive protest if you refuse to heed the plea of Nigerians. The country is in shambles. We need someone like you to use your experience in Akwa Ibom to help save the country. ”
The governor, on the other hand, has advised those clamouring for him to run for president to pray about it in order to seek God’ s blessings and direction, while he focuses on fulfilling the mandate Akwa Ibom people gave him through the ballot box.
Governor Emmanuel stated that the time has come for leaders to look outside the box about how to run the economy, which he said led him to come up with the notion of developing the three gateways of land, air, and sea in Akwa Ibom.
He explained that, in addition to connecting all local government areas with access roads, including neighbouring states, his administration has expanded on his predecessors’ vision of developing the MRO of the Ibom International Airport to allow all aircraft on the African continent to be serviced, maintained, and overhauled in Akwa Ibom.
According to the governor, his administration is looking beyond oil, which is why he is currently testing a multi- million dollar coconut refinery in the state. He also stated that five foreign countries are currently in Akwa Ibom to study the idea, technology, and expertise in order to replicate it in their home country.
He explained that, despite the price of crude oil per barrel on the international energy market, a litre of virgin coconut costs $6, implying that coconut oil is more expensive and profitable than crude. He added that this is another way his administration is diversifying both the state’ s economy and revenue profile.
He also stated that his administration has made an interest- free loan of N2 billion available to market women, with the objective of increasing the amount to make it a revolving loan to boost the growth of small enterprises in the state.
