Akwa Ibom Governor Umo Eno has praised the courts and the people of Akwa Ibom in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling recognizing him as the state’s legitimately elected governor, announced on March 18, 2023.

In a statement made public on Thursday by his chief press secretary, Ekerete Udoh, Eno praised President Bola Tinubu for leading with inclusivity and his predecessor, Udom Emmanuel, for encouraging him.

“This victory is an affirmation and vindication of that huge and unassailable mandate. Let me thank the Nigerian judiciary for the great and enduring work it has done to deepen and protect the guardrails of our democracy; the judiciary, indeed, remains the last hope of the common man. We will continue to have hope and trust in them,” Governor Eno said.

The governor congratulated Godswill Akpabio, the Senate President, and Obong Victor Attah, a former state leader, for their encouragement and support, dedicating his win to God Almighty and the people of Akwa Ibom State.

“Once again, I call on our brothers, who aspired to lead this great state with me, to come and join hands with me to continue the task of building this state and help bring more developments across sectors. We hold no malice or grudge but love, even for those who did not support me.

“In any political contest, a winner must emerge, and it has pleased God to hand me the baton of leadership today. I promise to use this baton to work to cement the blocks of our continuous unity, shared dreams, development, and growth,” the governor stated.
