Uyo – THE Speaker of Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly, Mr. Onofiok Luke has said that he would never join the All Progressives Congress, (APC) or any another political party, saying the APC is a conglomerate of angry politicians.
Luke who stated this when representatives of a socio-political group on the platform of Akwa Ibom Political Groups, (AKPG) led by its Chairman Dr. Andrew Uwanta paid a courtesy call on him at the House of Assembly conference hall yesterday said he would remain a bonafide member of the PDP.
His words, “I will be the last person to join the APC or any other political party. Their ideology is different from mine. The APC is only a conglomerate of angry politicians. Some of them were in the PDP.
“Today they are the same people that are turning around to say that the PDP is evil. That means that they are evil too because some of them were in the PDP. PDP was our party yesterday; it is our party today and our party tomorrow”
The speaker urged the group to remain committed in its resolution as genuine PDP members by making sure that Akwa Ibom State particularly the governor Udom Emmanuel was delivered to the PDP in 2019.
He maintained that Governor Udom Emmanuel must be returned in 2019 to complete his unbroken 8years tenure for the Eket Senatorial district like former governors of the state, Obong Victor Attah and Senator Godswill Akpabio.
He however condemned the bombing of innocent citizens at the IDP camp in Borno State by the Nigeria Air-force, urging the federal government and security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities.
“Also in strong terms I condemn in totality the killings in Southern Kaduna. Security agencies must be alive to their responsibilities. We have only one indivisible country which is Nigeria. And the only thing that can ensure that indivisibility is true federalism”, he added.
