Ahead of the forthcoming local government elections in Akwa Ibom State, the gridlock on who should fly the flag of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nsit Atai has finally been cleared with Mr. Cosmas Okon Esq. emerging the favored aspirant for the top job.
Barr. Okon, the immediate past ‘workaholic’ and result-oriented legal adviser of the party who has been consulting around the clock and selling his dreams, blueprint and ideas with the people finally got an overwhelming endorsement to represent the party and further succeed the incumbent Emem Ibanga.
Okon whose agenda is centered on aggressive economic and rural development, improved IGR through business initiatives, education, health and youth empowerment is all ready to rewrite the leadership fortunes of the area.
His undaunted passion to lead an oil palm revolution in Nsit Atai is another masterstroke which has endeared him to the people.
The elders, party leaders, women and youths of the area had explained that their decision to align with the legal luminary is due to the rising need for a unifier, stabilizer and disciplined administrator as head of council, who will close ranks, eliminate factions and divisiveness and run an all-inclusive administration for the overall benefit of Nsit Atai people.
A revered youth leader, Effiong Eyo was quoted saying “Nsit Atai is currently in need of a thinker, a revolutionist and a solutionist, who will identify our problems and make conscious efforts to address same squarely”.
“Cosmas Okon a certified dispute resolution expert is the best thing to happen to us now” he concluded.
Barr. Okon’s independent emergence has been seen as New Dawn for the people of Nsit Atai LGA.
