Nsisong 'Roddy' Etukudo

To further buttress their wide acceptability in the build up to the 2019 elections, Councillors from Nsit Atai Local Government Area extraction have adopted Governor Udom Emmanuel and Rt. Hon. Mark Esset as their sole candidates for gubernatorial race and House of Assembly in 2019, respectively.

This was their position when they visited the member in his office on 15th March 2018.

The delegation which was made up of the Executive Vice Chairman, Hon. Idorenyin Inyang who led the delegation, also had the Deputy Leader of Nsit Atai Legislative Council and five other Councillors, unanimously adopted the Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel for the leadership stride in the affairs of the State; and Rt. Hon. Mark Esset for the effective representation so far given to Nsit Atai State Constituency in Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly.

The team went ahead to appreciate Elder Mark Esset for his ingenuity and dexterity in the representation of Nsit Atai people and applauded him for the forthcoming constituency briefing/empowerment programme which will add value to lives in the area and also boost the image of Nsit Atai State Constituency. 

They further acknowledged that the Honourable Member has engaged in House activities effectively which has taken Nsit Atai to limelight. The Councillors expressed hope for more of the effective representation in 2019 as they beckoned on him to continue in the good works.

The members of the Nsit Atai Legislative Council are of the stand that the choice of Hon. Mark Esset is strictly on zoning, only seeking second term, which political sentiment has denied Nsit Atai this opportunity in the past, hence losing greater chances in governance. 

They called on Nsit Atai indigenes to appreciate the truth and embrace the fact that Nsit Atai needs to move away from parochial sentiment for development to abound in the area.

In his response, Hon. Mark Esset said he was humbled by the position of the Councillors and said it is a prove that the people are yearning for effective represention. 

The lawmaker appreciated them and promised to use his position in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly to affect lives positively. Elder Esset also urged them to use their representation at that level of governance to touch lives and draw dividends of democracy to their communities.

He used the occasion to invite them and other well meaning natives of Nsit Atai to the Constituency Briefing/Empowerment programme which is slated for March 28th, 2018. Hon. Mark Esset said he enjoys adding value to lives and this has distinguished his leadership style at any given time. 

The erudite Lawmaker promised to always give back to the people wherever destiny will propelled him to; for always believing and reposing their confidence on him.

It could be recalled that several groups and individuals have graciously beckoned on the Mark of Effective Representation to continue in his great legislative strides beyond 2019.
