…promises to deliver if given opportunity
One of the aspirants in Eket Federal Constituency, Hon. Samuel Ekpeyong Thomas has consulted the delegates of wards 3, 5, and 9 of his intention to contest for the House of Representatives in 2023.
Ekpeyong declared his intention today Wednesday, 2nd March, 2022 at J-Meks Prestige Hotel, Jetty Road, Ibeno LGA, Akwa Ibom State.
Consulting the delegates, Mr. Ekpeyong noted that, having supported other local government areas (Eket, Esit Eket, Onna) to do their turns of 28years in the federal house, it’s now the turn of Ibeno LG to go for the House of Representatives in 2023, and that he has offered himself to represent the people of Eket Federal Constituency.
“We have supported Eket, Esit Eket, and Onna local government areas to do their complete tenures of two-term each which is 28years putting together, come 2023, it will be the sole turn of Ibeno LGA to produce the next federal house member and it’s on this note that I’m consulting as well as declaring to you my intention to contest for the House of Representatives,” Ekpeyong said.
The Local Government Commission Member also stated that in his own capacity, he had contributed his quota to the development of Ibeno and also empowered some indigenes of the area, noting that if elected into office as the federal house member, he will do even more for his people.
“All my life, I have been contributing my quota to the development of this community. I have developed and empowered people and they are all there to attest to it. God has also used my wife to touch lives in different ways when she was the commissioner and we are still doing that as long as God empowers us. Therefore, I come here today to solicit your support. I appeal to you to support me and I assure you that, I will not disappoint you because as the son of the soil, I know the immediate needs of the people and through legislation and oversight functions, I will deliver and make you proud” he averred.
The ward delegates through various speakers acknowledged the fact that they have seen all Ekpeyong and his wife have done for the people of Ibeno and the community and they do not doubt the fact that if elected into the position, he will give superlative representation while asserting that, since it’s only God that gives power, it’s their sincere prayers that God will find Hon. Samuel Ekpeyong worthy to represent the people of the Eket Federal Constituency in 2023.
