Senate 2023: Group picks Ex DIG, Ekpoudom says “he’s the people’s voice”
A group known as Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District Builders Forum has opted for the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Udom Ekpoudom (Rtd), as the best fit for the Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District(ISD) Seat in the National Assembly come 2023.
The group disclosed this to newsmen during their meeting in Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area last weekend.
Speaking for the group, the Coordinator, Adede Uko Idiong said the choice of the former DIG for the senate seat is hinged on the fervent need for holistic representation of the entire interest of the youth, women, and elders of ISD at the Senate, which is yet to be achieved.
Idiong described Ekpoudom as a thorough breed vested with the requisite understanding of the statutory tasks of a lawmaker and a strategist who is fully aware of the immediate and age-long plights of the people. Idiong submitted that as a man with no track record of failure even during his days in active service to the nation, the former DIG will strongly protect the people’s interest.
The Coordinator of the group maintained the Etim Ekpo born politician is the right voice yearned after by ISD and with his(Ekpoudom) grounded understanding of grassroots and national politics, the dividends of democracy will flood the whole senatorial district if he contests and wins the senate race.
The group promised to support DIG Ekpoudom (Rtd) to victory.
