Addressing party faithful, Hon. Barrister Michael Njah took time out to eulogized young Prince Godswil Umoh, whom he said has been a faithful party man and a visionary young man that is reliable and cool headed, whom if voted would represent the Ikot Ekpene Federal constituency effectively in every ramification. Barrister Njah, who said he has to jettison his ambition to seek election in the same office because of the zoning formula of the party, thanked God for how he has made APC, a party that people used to be afraid to identify with to now become the toast and darling of every politician in the state. He specifically revealed how he used to pray for the emergence of an equally strong political party that can challenge and give PDP a run for their money so that Nigerian can go forward, as she (PDP) was already becoming a party that was laden with so much impunity and a capitalist party. The Chapter Chairman of the party, Hon. Iyanam Akpan on his path appreciated Prince Umoh for keeping faith with the party and wished him well in his aspiration, promising that they as party leaders would do the needful when the time comes.
Prince Godswil Umoh, a Philosopher and a relatively young businessman from Ikot Ekpene LGA of Akwa Ibom state is one of those young men that are taking advantage of the new bill that is intended to encourage young people to vie for elective offices, as he gathered the who is who of the Ikot Ekpene LGA All Progressive Congress, (APC) members at the party’s chapter secretariat, Aba Road, Ikot Ekpene and the entire eleven wards to consult the leaders of the party and to intimate them of his aspiration to run for the post of the House of Representative member representing the good people of Obot Akara, Esien Udim and Ikot Ekpene at the Federal House of Representative in the 2019 general election.
