Christmas: Udom urges citizens to reject politicians inciting violence

The Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, has called on citizens to reject any politician who is out to institute violence and disrupt the peace experienced in the state.

Speaking Saturday in Uyo during a Christmas broadcast to the people of the state, Emmanuel said the peace enjoyed in the state was responsible for the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit witnessed in recent times.

He called on politicians to eschew bitterness and embrace brotherliness instead.

“Our people have found peace amongst themselves. Peace has seen us tap into our creative wells and the entrepreneurial culture is being embraced by our people, especially the youths. We must maintain this peace with every fibre of our beings.

“And let me even add, anyone who aims at getting power by using violence against his or her people, will end up ruling with violence. May the season of peace which Christmas represents, never see our State go through such politically-motivated years of violence again,” he said.
