*As 3,107 people join YPP, say fresh vegetable is nourishing
The ancient city of Odoro Ikpe, the headquarters of Ini Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State completely turned green as the YPP entourage made up of the state Chairman, Apostle Nyeneime Andy, governorship candidate, Senator Bassey Albert, his running mate, AIG Asuquo Amba rtd, and others visited the local area for the official inauguration of the chapter secretariat.
The gubernatorial candidate, excited by the large turn out out, asked the people to think of their tomorrow and be ready to reject hunger, starvation and intimidation by identifying with the YPP.
“If you want to move
forward, YPP is the answer. We are not here to campaign, when we come here for campaign, we will inform you of our programmes”, OBA said.
Andy, state chairman of the YPP, while thanking the people for turning out en masse to welcome the YPP entourage, warned that destroying the bill boards of the YPP is fighting God.
“We have just observed that some people are destroying the bill boards of the YPP. I use this opportunity to advise them to desist from doing that, because by doing that, they are fighting God who is the owner of the party”, he warned.
Apostle Andy, after receiving about 3,107 decampees into the party, handed over party register and other particulars to the chapter chairman for ease of registration.
The Ini Chapter chairman, Anietie Jackson, said the day was a turning point in their political history, no wonder they closed their commercial activities to attend the official inauguration of the chapter office.
In his goodwill message, the member representing Ini/Ikono in the House of Representatives, Hon. Emmanuel Ukpong – Udo, who is the YPP candidate for Ini/Ikono, assured Ini people that their story will soon be different as their prayers will soon to be answered through the YPP.
Speaking on behalf of all decampees, Barr. Inyang Idim, a former PDP member, assured the YPP of victory in next year’s election.
“We have all decided to abandon an umbrella that could not give us any shade. The leaves are okay with us, the vegetables are nourishing for us and we are moving with it. We are not only from PDP. The defectors are from the PDP, APC and the ADC. We will work to liberate the people from the shackles of poverty”, he said.
