Eno, in a very exciting and impassioned speech while receiving defectors spoke of his spirit of inclusivity and the kind of a party man he is.

“From the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, we will and must show him support and respect. That is the PDP I run. “We don’t attack leadership because what goes round comes round.

“If I have a suggestion, I have access to the President, we will go and give our suggestions. We will support our leaders and we will not fight them.

“I am a pastor trained to respect people and we must continue to show that all-important character of humility, of compassion, and of respect to constituted authority.

“That, I shall continue to do. I and our Party will continue to collaborate with the Centre so that we can bring dividends of Democracy to Akwa Ibom. I will not fight the Centre. Nobody will fight the Centre. That is the point and now that you are coming back, that is what we will maintain. We will give peace a chance.

“The last administration that God made me to take over from was peaceful, and so there is a continuity.

“We must show respect, decency, and loyalty. That’s why, everything that the President had promised us, God will touch his heart and he will give it to us.
