A prominent and frontline support group for Pastor Umo Eno the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) in Akwa Ibom State, The Value Intact/ Dynamic Mothers Initiative is intensifying its mobilisation and sensitization campaign to get support for the PDP flagbearer.
The promoter and National President of the twin support group Pastor Stella Imoh who disclosed this during the ongoing local government areas campaign tour of PDP maintained that her group has taken the sensitization and mobilisation campaign to units and wards with the aim of garnering more support for the PDP gubernatorial candidate. She said she had intensified the mobilisation campaign in markets in some of the local government areas with intention to cover all the local governments.She reiterated the fact that, what motivated her to pull her resources to support the PDP candidate his entrepreneurial pedigree with so many people in his employment as well as his humble background and status as a God fearing person.
According to the Founder of National Value Intact/ Dynamic Mothers Initiative, the strength of her group alone especially the Dynamic Mothers Initiative populated by women and controlling thousands of women in all the local government areas with units and ward coordinators, the mobilisation work going on in earnest has already put thousands of women including widows, traders and young girls of voting age positioned with their PVCs ready for the forthcoming election to queue behind the PDP governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State.
So far, the group has taken its sensitisation and mobilisation campaign to some local governments like Ini which is the home local government area of Stella Imoh, Ikono, Eket where she is based and Eastern Obolo among others.
Interestingly,apart from the current mobilisation of voters campaign of the support group anchored by her( Stella Imoh), the twin group is also actively participating in the PDP governorship candidate campaign tour of the state which began last October with the flag off of Senatorial DIstrict campaign in the three Senatorial DIstricts of Uyo, Eket and Ikot Ekpene followed by state flagoff and now local government areas.
It could be recalled that during the last voters registration exercise Stella Imoh had embarked on aggressive sensitisation campaign in markets, churches and door to door educating market women, widows and young girls on the need to go and register to enable them perform their civic responsibility in the coming election. She stressed that her altruistic effort which was a way of getting the apparently non-challant persons like those she targeted to armed themselves with their PVC to vote for her desired candidate, being Umo Eno.
For her, there is no way she would have endulged in such a venture of mobilising support for the PDP candidate with her own resources if she did not have faith on him, particularly his potential to deliver good governance while also sustaining the relative peace currently enjoyed in Akwa Ibom State under the administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel.
Prior to deploying her group to support the PDP governorship candidate, the clergy, philanthropist, counsellor and now politician had used the group to empower many people especially the widows, young girls, market women and youths that her in tertiary institutions.
She confirmed that notwithstanding her commitment now to canvass support for Umo Eno, she is still performing her role of touching many lives.
The PDP candidate has now taken his campaign tour to Urueffong/ Uruko, Ikono, Abak with Itu local government schedule for this Saturday December 3,2022.
According to schedule, his campaign train is expected to touch all the 31 local government areas before the election takes place in March.
