Let Oron produce next governor
THIS is an appeal to Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State and other political leaders in the state.
Of all the three major ethnic groups in the state, it is only the Oron people that have not produced a governor since the creation of the state in 1987. This is unfair, and it should be corrected.
Oron is very strategic to the buoyant economy of this country. 90 per cent of the oil produced by Akwa Ibom State comes from the area. There are about 10 oil companies operating there.
We have many people with qualities of a governor. They are all bubbling with patriotism and dynamism. Somebody from Oron should be given the opportunity to rule the state from May, 2015 in the interest of the unity of the state.
Government Akpabio and other leaders should agree to give this chance to Oron.
Ulap Jacob Nsoh,
Akwa Ibom State.
