2023 Governorship: Onofiok Luke seeks end to social inequality


A governorship aspirant for the 2023 elections in Akwa Ibom State, and member House of Representatives for Nsit-Ubium, Nsit-Ibom, Etinan Constituency, Honourable Onofiok Luke, has pledged to bridge the widening social inequality gap existing between the privileged few and the underprivileged majority in the state.

He said such social inequalities, which have existed for several years, have brought distrust between the political class and the masses.

Luke, who is the chairman of House Committee on Judiciary, said this, on Thursday, in a statement issued by his Amazing Grace campaign organisation, through the director of communication, Uduak Ikafia.

The statement said: “In the next few days, the Amazing Grace Project, which is the campaign organisation of Hon. Onofiok Luke, will unveil details of his formal declaration and a manifesto, which will outline the terms of his social contract with Akwa Ibom people.

“The Amazing Grace Project is the God-inspired and people-driven campaign organisation galvanising Akwa Ibom towards the actualisation of Hon. Luke’s vision for inclusive governance, which is clearly articulated in our campaign theme: Building Together, Growing Together.

“Onofiok Luke has always believed in a concerted effort towards building a progressive state. It has always been his thought and idea that our people should be an active part of our building process, and that they should grow together in prosperity rather than just watch a few grow.

“Our project was, therefore, established on the firm belief that Akwa Ibom can only succeed through the collective contributions of the people, and the success story will only be complete when the people fully partake in the reward.

“Luke is thus on a mission to provide our great state with a leadership that will not only involve the people in the building process, but will prioritise the collective growth of every single one of us.

“As we push towards our goal in 2023, we are assured that Akwa Ibom people will reiterate their stand on demanding for a leadership that is characterised by experience, youthfulness, acceptability, accessibility, and accountability.”

The statement further stated that within the last two years of Luke’s consultations with stakeholders, elders, religious leaders, traditional leaders, youths and women, the people have shared their challenges and through those interactions, everyone agreed that those challenges are surmountable.

“Luke is, therefore, committed to giving a leadership consciously aimed at building our people and their capacity to match with the economic and infrastructural growth of our state.

“After many years of dreaming and preparing, we are now at the turning point in history. Therefore, the Amazing Grace Project is a clarion call on Akwa Ibom people to come, let’s build together and grow together,” the statement added.
