… as Ice King shuns Akpabio’s APC for Udom’s PDP
Akwa Ibom Entertainers have remained relentless in their drive to coast Umo Eno to victory at the polls in the gubernatorial election come March 2023.
This was evidenced as they thrilled fans at the 18,000 capacity Eket stadium, which came alive again on Thursday, February 2, 2023 to receive the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Gubernatorial Candidate for Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno, his dear wife, Pastor Patience Umo Eno, his Deputy Gubernatorial Candidate, Senator Akon Eyakenyi and all the PDP Candidates in the Senatorial District.
Ibom Entertainers for Umo Eno 2023, led by the Special Assistant to Governor on Entertainment Industry, Mr David Sergeant ( Utang Akwa Ibom ) joined party faithfuls at Eket for the Umo Eno/ Akon Eyakenyi 2023 Campaign rally.
A cheerful heart, as stated in Proverbs 17:22 has been the medicine to cure the people of unbelief and to rekindle hope. This style by the entertainers and Pastor Umo Eno himself may have attracted onlookers, like the ‘prodigal son’, Ice King, who had wondered into the ‘wilderness’ for years, but made his way back under the cover of the PDP umbrella, as he officially declared support for Pastor Umo Eno at Eket stadium.
Just like Onna born Ice King, Eket has been the home of Pastor Eno and cradle of his hospitality business for 25 years. Entertainers, in their usual manner, were on ground and at the forefront of the jamboree, in their bid to continually herald the message of the Arise Agenda, using the creative arts; music, dance and drama.
Many say the rally was a homecoming for Pastor Umo Eno, just as it was for Ice King who had toiled several years carrying the ‘broom’ and cared less about building a sustainable structure for the entertainment industry with his kinsman and colleagues.
The elated Ice King, who was visibly absent at the APC rally in Akwa Ibom State recently, made a U-turn by shunning his former benefactor, Obong Godswil Akpabio, his political party and gubernatorial candidate, to declare for Pastor Umo Eno and PDP.
The massive turnout at the Eket rally speaks volume of the acceptability of Pastor Umo Eno and gives assurances of his victory at the polls. Just like his business which he established in Eket years ago, Akwa Ibom state will blossom under his watch as governor.
