BEING THE SPEECH OF THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE MR. JOHNSON ATTAH B. OF DEMOCRATIC ALTERNATIVE PARTY AT THEIR CAMPAIGN FLAG-OFF AND MANIFESTO PRESENTATION, JANUARY 17, 2019.
By Abraham Brown
Let me start this address by acknowledging the Presence of my Running mate Mr. Ann Ukpong, The Party Chairman and all other party stakeholders present here.
Due to the lack of time and the want of it I will not be able to list out all my Manifestos but just few important factors that will transform Akwa Ibom State.
I Johnson Attah Stand here to let the good people of Akwa lbom State know my Government will lay emphasis in the Agricultural Sector (specifically Manpower) we will provide basic amenities to our Local Farmers in the Rural areas to help them ply their trades and in turn create employment opportunities for others who which to go into the Agricultural Sector.
My Government will create in a modern way not by double taxation of its citizenry and strangers coming into the State to do business, This will be made possible by using the waterways and also empowering our Fishermen by creating a jetty and giving them other equipment to enable them boost the Internal Generated Revenue.
For free and compulsory education to be sustained in any geographical area the welfare of the teachers must be paramount and this is what my Administration will ponder on because if the Teacher’s are not duly taken care of the future of our Children will be put in Coma; There will be increased in their salaries and I will also build houses at affordable rates to ensure the have an asset as Government workers.
My Deputy is a learned – Woman in the shipping sector and a Former Port Manager, She is recognized internationally and that’s the reason I choosed Her as my Running mate, Take my word to the bank that with this collaboration the realization of Ibaka Deep Seaport is assured because I have been in the Shipping Sector since 1999, Few days ago I was interviewed by the Press and I told them that Making Akwa ibom State a Commercial Hub is not rocket science it can be made possible by creating and enabling environment for the importers, In the Shipping Sector the importer has the right to decide the location of the Shipment. If I become the Governor of Akwa lbom State I will make transportation easy to bring people’s consignment and create a warehouse for safety of their goods. My main concern is within the Southern Region because they own the Largest number of containers that comes into the Country and if that’s made possible our Internal Generated Revenue will boost sporadically.
Lastly I want to expressed my Profound gratitude to the National Chairman of the Party, State Chairman, Ward Chairmen, Ward Coordinators and the entire members of the Party for giving me the opportunity to be the flag bearer of our great Party (Democratic Alternative)
I give you my words today that you have chosen the right Man for the job and I will make all my Manifestos come true. Go ye all Coordinators and members of the Party to the Grassroots and preach the gospel of Democratic Alternative. Thank you all for coming to honour me.
