Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State was part of the Peoples Democratic Party big names that attended the flag off of the party's gubernatorial election campaign in Edo State which took place on Monday, 4th of July, 2016.

Governor Emmanuel spoke in Benin, during the official flag-off of the campaign for the Edo State PDP governorship flag bearer, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, ahead of the September 10, 2016 gubernatorial election, according to the Punch.

Emmanuel, who represented the South-South PDP governors, said the party was ready to reclaim the state from the All Progressive Congress, APC, and keep the region as a stronghold of the PDP.

He said doing so would deliver dividends of democracy and engender steady growth and development in the oil-rich region. According to him, only the PDP can find an antidote to the economic woes of Nigeria which has made life difficult for the hapless masses.

The Governor described Ize-Iyamu, who is a pastor, as a credible candidate who will reposition Edo State.

Earlier, Ize-Iyamu announced a former chairman of Esan North Local Government Area, John Yakubu, as his running mate. He expressed gratitude to God and PDP supporters for the opportunity given him to fly the ticket of the party, saying the party was blessed with leaders who can change the fortune of the state.
