Obong Victor Attah, the former governor of Akwa Ibom state and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustee member, on Saturday attended the All Progressive Congress (APC) rally at Akwa Ibom and endorsed APC governorship candidate Obong Okon Umana against PDP candidate Emmanuel Udom in the forthcoming elections in Nigeria.
Attah told the mammoth crowd in live televised broadcast on NTA at Uyo where the APC grand rally took place that his decision to support Umunna was based on the desire for change in Akwa Ibom.
Attah said as a political leader in the state, he had to align himself with the majority of the people who want Umana as their governor.
He said despite the fact that he is a member of PDP it was his duty to identify with the wishes of the people of Akwa Ibom.
He also urged the people to vote for APC senatorial candidate who is contesting against the governor of the state, Godswill Akpabio who he accused of breaching the agreement of zoning in the state because of his selfish interest.
Also in attendance at the rally was founding member of PDP, Dan Etete who also enjoined the people to vote massively for APC candidates because they are the choice of the people in the state.
Etete urged the people to ensure that they vote and protect their votes by staying behind to watch the counting of their votes in various polling booths to avoid rigging on the day of the election.
