There is growing unease in Akwa Ibom State over the governorship ambition of Umana Okon Umana, who is the current secretary to the state government (SSS). investigation revealed that the stakeholders in the state are not in support of the ambition of Umana and that they vowed to ensure that he did not win the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). investigation revealed further that youths in the state are against the SSG based on the fact that he has been in government in one capacity or the other since the advent of the present political dispensation in 1999 hence they are agitating that he should give others a chance to serve the people.

“Is it only him? He should give others a chance to serve now. We want a change and that is why we are not going to support him,” one of the youths told our correspondent on condition of anonymity.

Other stakeholders in the state are of the opinion that power should shift to other senatorial district with special emphasis on the Eket Senatorial District as being the next in line to produce the next governor of the state.

As it is, stakeholders in the state seems to have taken a common stand on working against Umana’s ambition and for the SSG, indeed the road is vey rough.
