The Member Representing Etinan Federal Constituency, Onofiok Luke, has issued a statement distancing himself from being a party to the nomination of Pastor Umo Eno as Governor Udom Emmanuel’s choice for succession.

Luke in his statement explained that he only heard of the agenda selecting Pastor Umo Eno as Udom’s successor for the first time at an innocent meeting the Governor had asked him to attend at the lodge yesterday evening. He said that he only honoured the invitation out of respect and as a loyal party man.

According to him: “I am not against the choice of the Governor coming from my local government, Federal Constituency nor the aspiration of my brother; however, as a fellow aspirant from the same local government at the same advantage when successful, my aspiration to serve the state in the capacity of the Governor remains on course, this statement would not have been necessary but not for the misrepresentation in media which may create a negative impression about my person and the reputation God has helped me to build these number of years in public service. My supporters and those sympathetic to my cause should please note that we are as resolute as ever in our desire to give our people purposeful leadership in the office of the Governor come 2023. God’s Amazing Grace has always seen us through and will always see us through.”

Meanwhile, Pastor Eno is said to have appreciated the stakeholders after his nomination, saying he was humbled to be so recognised. Pastor Eno, until his appointment into the State Executive Council, was Chief Executive Officer of Royalty Hotels, the first local Akwa Ibom company to take on large industrial catering offshore.
