As the politics to elect the leadership of the 7th Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly rages on, the people of Ikot Abasi / Eastern Obolo state constituency demand that the office of the deputy speaker of the state house of assembly be zoned to them, in the interest of fair play, justice and especially as a compensation for returning the governor and the PDP en masse.
Speaking under the aegis of Future Realization Group (FUG), the national coordinator, Patrick Udoetoh said since Oron Federal Constituency had the secretary to the state government and the speaker zoned to Uyo Federal constituency, it would be fair and balanced to zone the office to Ikot Abasi state constituency.
The group based their argument on another index that their representative in the Assembly, Uduak Odudoh had the requisite and cognate experience in the business of law making.
According to them, Odudoh, a second time member, a former councillor had contributed immensely to the growth and development of the area.
They described the lawmaker as an outstanding and seasoned politician who has paid his due in the politics of the area by effective representation, life-touching over sight functions and abundant gift of generosity.
