AHEAD of the 2023 general election in Akwa Ibom State, a governorship aspirant, Mr. James Iniama, has urged the people  of the state to move away from sentimental attachment to the choice of leadership and deepen their political participation by ensuring proper scrutiny of all the aspirants in the state.

He specifically charged them to put all the aspirants in the box and subject them to critical examination on the basis of their character and competences.

Iniama said this in an interview with newsmen in his Ewet Housing residence in Uyo, on Tuesday.

According to him, the people of the state should not accept short term benefits and deceit from politicians adding that the era of distributing rice, wrappers, motorcycle were gone because such things are not sustainable

He said, “This is the time to look inward and be very deliberate, let us not make the mistakes of Nigeria. Nigerians were sentimental in 2015. We left President Goodluck Jonathan and voted for APC’s Muhammadu Buhari. So, we have to be careful about our choice of leadership.

“We need aspirants who understands what needs to be done, and who is ready to fill the gaps, the gap to meet the needs of the people. We need leaders who understand the philosophy of leadership, not just a career person but a business minded political person.”

Speaking on why he is seeking to occupy the Hilltop Mansion in 2023, Iniama said, “I am qualified constitutionally by age, by academic qualifications. But more than that, I am conscious of the fact that we are in dire need of a leader that is willing to offer himself to the service of Akwa Ibom state and service to the nation of Nigeria.”
