Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Gabriel Emmanuel has expressed confidence that the People Democratic Party (PDP) will win the 2019 general elections.
In a chat with the Sun, Governor Emmanuel noted that there was no political party in Nigeria that has structures across all polling units like the PDP. He maintained that PDP has brought development to Nigeria and he was very certain of victory in 2019.
“The level of confidence has no probability; it is as constant as the North Pole.

“It is not even a probability, I am certain it is PDP or no other party,” he added.
On political violence, governor Emmanuel advised those calling for war to put their children forward to lead the war front. He noted his administration was doing everything under the law to ensure peace in Akwa Ibom State.

I just want Nigerians to ask those preaching war where their children are. Whose children do they want to engage in the war, when they have hidden their children somewhere?” he continued.
“Unfortunately, that is one of the disadvantages of freedom of speech and human rights. We are aware that they have even gone ahead to sow fake police and army uniforms, and are trying to bring in all kinds of ammunitions through different routes,”
“I normally ask people that if the intention is to serve, why you have to kill the people you want to serve. We all campaign, present our manifesto and call for votes so that we can serve our people, but if you sincerely want to serve your people, why do you have to kill them? This means that they have other motives in which
