The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Akwa Ibom State has said it would not succumb to war songs of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state even in the midst of extreme provocations.
The state chairman of PDP, Obong Paul Ekpo stated this on Tuesday while delivering his New Year speech in Uyo Akwa Ibom State.
He urged their supporters to conduct all campaigns rallies and meetings with decorum , assuring that God would help PDP win in the general elections.
According to him, “It is with great pleasure that I welcome all Akwa Ibom people to the year 2019. This year as we already know, will host the elections into different offices within the land in our country.
“As we march courageously into this year which is filled with unlimited blessings, I join my faith with that of Governor Udom Emmanuel and government of our dear state to announce that this year will be a year of the manifestation of God’s glory and power. Only God will manifest his unlimited powers upon the affairs of our state and concomitantly exact the glory due him from us.
“As a political party, we have rededicated ourselves to God and have invited him to rule and reign over our affairs. We will go to battle in HIS name and we know that victory will accompany us home.
“We encourage our supporters to conduct all campaigns rallies, meetings and all other party functions under an atmosphere of decorum and peace. Even in the face of unwarranted provocation, we must act like true Christians by allowing vengeance to God. We must not reply war with war, but do all we can to live peaceably with all men.”
He however congratulated all Akwa Ibom people for making it to the new year, 2019.
