The incumbent Chairman of Ika local government area, Hon. Anthony Udousung has promised to deliver dividends of democracy to his people if elected into office as the council Chairman for second term for the completion of his developmental agenda for the good of Ika.
Udousung made this known while interacting with journalists immediately after submitting his Chairmanship form at the PDP Secretariat, Edet Akpan Avenue, Uyo today. He said “His second term in office as the council Chairman will afford him an ample opportunity to deliver social and economic services to the good people of Ika”.
Speaking on the current Zoning arrangement, however Hon. Udousung explained that council Chairmanship position has been rotating among the 3 clans in Ika, namely Ito, Acha and Odoro where he hails from. He explained further that based on that initial Zoning arrangement each clan served as the council Chairman for only one term which all the clans had taken their own turns.
Thereafter, new Zoning arrangement was initiated, this time for each zone to serve for second term as the council Chairman. This, Udousung maintained that his predecessor from the other clan has completed two terms tenure. Hence, this is the time of Odoro clan to serve as the council Chairman for two terms and he is the person to complete that based on the new Zoning arrangement.
Accordingly, Hon. Udousung has appealed to Ika people to support him for the second term and also to deliver more dividends of democracy to them.
