Retired DIG Udom Ekpoudom, the All Progressive Congress, APC Governorship Candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Obong Akan Udofia, and Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial Candidate, Obong Godswill Akpabio, resolved to close ranks and work together to deliver the party in the state.
The trio came to the decision after a meeting that lasted for some hours at DIG Ekpoudom’s residence in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.
It will be recalled that the duo of Akpabio and DIG Ekpoudom had been enmeshed in a keen contest for the Akwa Noth West Senatorial ticket of the Party until the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Senator Akpabio.
“It was a fruitful meeting as our leaders have agreed to work together. There is no more crisis in the APC as DIG Ekpoudom has reaffirmed his commitment to work for the success of the party at the poll,” a party chieftain disclosed.
In his remark, the APC Governorship Candidate, Obong Akan Udofia described the meeting as a gathering of brothers who are eager to embrace peace and unity for the success of the Party in the State.
“We met as part of ongoing efforts to unify Akwa Ibom APC as we embark on a collective journey to deliver Akwa Ibom State and entrench shared Prosperity for all”.
