By Abasiofiok Inyang

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP stakeholders in Nsit Ubium Local Government Area have urged their political leader, and former senator representing Uyo Senatorial District, Senator Effiong Bob to honour the agreement that he and other stakeholders of the party entered in 2014 during build-up to the 2015 Nsit Ubium State Constituency Seat election.
The Sensor authoritatively learnt that the voice vote agreement in which the stakeholders including Sen. Bob, Obong Eseme Esema, Barr. Onofiok Luke, Barr. Solomon Ekokoi, among others entered was that since the seat was hotly contested between Barr. Onofiok Luke and Barr. Solomon Ekokoi, and if not well handled, could lead to crisis in the party, an Nsit son in the person of Barr. Luke should be allowed to go and after he has served his term, an Ubium son in the person of Barr. Ekokoi should serve.
The Sensor has equally learnt that the two term senator has reneged on the agreement and is poised to impose his son, Barr. Otobong Bob on the people, an action that has so far generated serious tension in the area.
Speaking with our correspondent, one of the stakeholders who said he was part of the agreement, condemned the action of the political leader, saying that an attempt to impose his son on the Ubium people in particular and Nsit Ubium in general will amount to betrayal of trust and will be resisted.
The stakeholder who advised that the agreement made, be respected in favour of Barr. Ekokoi, added that the political leader has no monopoly of dictating a House member to the people. He equally urged the people of Ubium to remain calm while agitating for fair-play, equity and justice.
Though Barr. Ekokoi could not be reached for reaction on the said agreement; one of his aides told our correspondent that his principal is not perturbed by the planed imposition of Barr. Bob on the people. He expressed optimism that his principal would get the party ticket.
