Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has re-emphasized that anyone who cannot manage a small set of humans will not be able to manage or govern a state, saying, “if one cannot run a kiosk, he cannot run a multinational.”


The governor, who alluded without mentioning names on Thursday during the flag-off ceremony of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, campaign for Uyo Senatorial District, said Nigeria is still grappling with enormous challenges because of leadership incompetence.


He regretted that despite the enormous human capacity in Akwa Ibom, none of her indigenes was allowed to become the president of Nigeria to turn the economy around in no distant time.


He, however, described the governorship candidate of PDP, Pastor Umo Eno as a man of capacity who has what it takes to move the state to greater heights and make Akwa Ibom a flagship state in Africa.


He said, “I will keep saying it, and I will repeat it until everybody hears me that if you cannot run a kiosk, you cannot run a multinational. If you have not created a dividend somewhere, you cannot create a dividend of democracy; that is why we are having the problems we are having in Nigeria today. How I wish that Akwa Ibom was given a chance, with the enormous human capacity to give them the President of Nigeria, to turn around the economy of this country in less than no time.”


In his remarks, the PDP governorship candidate, Pastor Umo Eno, promised to consolidate the developmental strides of Governor Emmanuel, especially in areas of rural agricultural development, health, tourism, women and youth empowerment.
