Ikot Ekpene (Akwa Ibom) – Dr. Anny Asikpo, a publisher of educational materials in Akwa Ibom, has secured the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) for the House of Representatives elections in the state.
Speaking with newsmen in Ikot Ekpene, Asikpo said that he was motivated by the need to improve the socio-economic status of his constituents.
He said that his people of Ikot Ekpene Federal Constituency had not fared well over the years in terms of human development.
“I want to prove that a representative is solely a servant leader who is sensitive to the needs of his people.
“I want to be their voice and represent their collective interests,” Asikpo promised.
He said if elected, he would give priority to skills acquisition, educational and youth development.
Asikpo, who is also a philanthropist, urged the people of the area to remember how he had rendered selfless service to them in the past even without being in elected office.
He also advised them to vote conscientiously for the right candidate.
NAN recalls that in 2011, Asikpo contested for the Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial seat on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) but lost to the PDP candidate.
