The Chairmanship hopeful for Uyo Local Government Area under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Uwemedimo Udo has appealed to the youths to maintain peace in Akwa Ibom state and the city center.
Dr. Udo, who made the plea in a release issued at the weekend in Uyo, noted that the erstwhile peaceful protest has been compromised and derailed by alternate actors with ulterior motives.
The chairmanship hopeful observed that reports from sister States and the ugly events witnessed in Uyo, the Capital city of Akwa Ibom State on Thursday October 22, are not only unfortunate and disturbing but highly condemnable.
Dr. Udo has therefore, enjoined all people of goodwill in Uyo Local Government Area to heed the clarion call by the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State, His Excellency, Mr Udom Emmanuel to desist from lawlessness and give peace a chance .
According to him, “Akwa Ibom State is our Land of Promise and together we shall continue to uphold the virtues of peace, hospitality and social responsibility which set us apart as one of the most peaceful and secure State in Nigeria.”
