Former All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives member, Hon. Eseme Eyiboh has congratulated Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel of the The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the three newly appointed commissioners.
The new commissioners included Pastor Umo Bassey Eno, Lands & Water Resources; Mrs Idongesit Iboro Etiebet, Education; Uko Essien Udom SAN, Attorney General & Commissioner for Justice.
Hon. Eyiboh in a statement in Uyo over the weekend described the appointment of the trio as a response to the call to institute best practices and the right people in governance.
The APC Stalwart who enumerated the track record achievements of the appointees in their private capacities urged them to make choices that will enhance the promotion of people’s aspirations.
He, however, noted that being an APC member and congratulating the appointees in the PDP government was beyond party politics and urged them to eschew the politics of prejudice.
His words, ‘I write to congratulate you on your emergence as a commissioner in the Akwa Ibom State Executive Council. This elevation eloquently testifies to the Governor’s response to the need to institute best practice by the recruitment of the right people into the right places to enhance the derivatives of democratic empowerment in the state.

Regardless of our peculiar challenges, your appointment to the State Executive Council has impacted the threshold of our inalienable socio-economic guarantees.
“I implore you to make choices that shall enhance the promotion of our collective urges and aspirations and break the narrow prejudices of the locust of our politics.
”I plead that you bring to bear in this appointment your acclaimed selfless commitment, focus, and capacity which has over time been the hallmark of the success you notched in your private enterprise, to your new appointment”.
