2019 AKHA Seat: Ikono Moves Against Gloria Edet


Stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikono local government area of Akwa Ibom State has warned Mrs Glory Edet, the state’s women affairs commissioner, to stay away from political activities in Ikono.
The Association of Home-Based Politicians in Ikono, has issued a warning in an open letter it forwarded to Mr Paul Ekpo, the Akwa Ibom State chairman of PDP David, which was signed by its Chairman Mr. Akpan Ntuk, accusing of Commissioner for Women Affaires, Mrs. Glory Edet Edet’s intervening in Ikono politics, describing her over involvement in the Ikono as d sacrilege , worrisome and unbearable to the people of the area..
Ntuk said: “we recall with sadness that one of our constituent groups, Ikemesit Ndito Ikono, made a full page newspaper congratulatory message to Dr. Glory Edet on her appointment as commissioner in the state executive council, not knowing it was an invitation to anarchy as she has summarily sought to give herself an unexplainable role of prominence in Ikono instead of concentrating in Ini (her home local government) politics.
“In one of the PDP Ikono Chapter enlarged executive meetings, Dr. Glory Edet was one of the invitees; the above are enough early warning signals for the people of Ikono to have sensed the intention of Dr. Glory Edet to temper with the zoning system existing in Ikono/Ini Federal Constituency.
“We however advice that as the governor’s appointee, she should do more to protect the image of her boss rather than bring the Government to disrepute with the role she played in the last PDP councillorship/chairmanship primaries in Ikono Local Government Area. Let us advise her to stop stretching herself further because, Ikono/Ini federal constituency seat is not yet vacant for an indigene of Ini local government area.
Ntuk said that the emergence of Itoro Columba as PDP flag bearer for Ikono in the forthcoming local government election scheduled for December came “as a result of the divine intervention by God, it is not due to the political power of any politician in Ikono or the woman commissioner, Dr. Glory Edet who assisted him.”
