Udom Emmanuel, governor of Akwa Ibom, says no first time governor has performed like him.
Emmanuel said this on Tuesday while speaking at a town hall meeting organised for Akwa Ibom indigenes in the northern states of the country. The event held at Women Centre in Abuja.
The governor said the state has progressed at all levels since he took charge in 2015.
“Then you look at the whole of Nigeria, no first term governor has performed as much as I have done in Akwa Ibom state,” Emmanuel said.
“You have elected a person who raised his hands and said ‘here I am send me.’ We started from the grassroots and there is development there.
“How do you measure quality? There is no examination in this country that Akwa Ibom will score less than 76 percent.”
The governor said the indigenes of Akwa Ibom develop everywhere they go to and “touch everyone”.
“What plan do you have for the future generations? That is what we building today. Let me say this here, by December we are going to commission one of best factories in Nigeria,” he said.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor is seeking re-election in 2019.
Udom and Godswill Akpabio, his predecessor and senator representing Akwa Ibom north-east, have been at loggerheads.
The senator once described the governor as a mistake that must be rejected in 2019.
