The All Progressives Congress candidate in the April 11 governorship election in Akwa Ibom State, Umana Umana, has hailed the appointment of Senator Ita Enang as Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters.
Enang, who was representing Uyo Senatorial District in the 7th National Assembly under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, defected to the All Progressives Congress in January after failing to clinch the party’s ticket to return to the red chamber.
He is also part of the legal team representing Umana at the state governorship election petitions tribunal, sitting in Abuja.
Umana, a former Secretary to the State Government, expressed confidence in the ability of the former Senate Committee Chairman on Rules and Business to deliver on his present appointment, urging Enang to make the people of Akwa Ibom proud.
He added that the appointment was a sign of recognition of the people of the state, urging the people of Akwa Ibom to pledge their full support for the government of President Buhari.
Umana stated, “Let nobody be deceived; the current President knows what he is doing and he is on the right track. He is determined to ensure fairness and justice at all levels. Anybody who thinks he can get away with crime or any form of impunity, as witnessed in the past, should know that the game is over.
“Buhari is a man who will never sit back and allow anyone to be cheated. I urge everyone to give the appointee the necessary support to enable him to discharge his duties effectively.
“Like I have always said, the APC is a party where you get recognition for credibility and good work. I therefore urge the people of Akwa Ibom, who are not yet members of the party, to join the train and enjoy the dividends of democracy”.
