Challenging the Ikpe Ward|| aspirant, Mr Nsikak James Nkweini narrated the reason he and his Ikpe Ward||, Unit8 members restrained themselves from protesting the impossition of candidate and the jettisoning of the zoning arrangement which they have been practicing since 1997.
Referring me to the leaders and stakeholders of the ward, who told us of the utmost respect that they have for the Hon. Commissioner for Women Affairs, Dr Gloria Edet, whom they said have done so well in stabilizing the polity and attracting development in the local government, a thing they said they never used to have despite having men as the political leaders of the local government.
Regretting being denied the opportunity to produced the next counselor, which was their turn, never the less pledged to abide with the wise leading and decision of the leader .
