By Divine Sam

A non-Governmental youth organisation in Abak LGA of Akwa Ibom state known as concerned Indigenes has called on the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) at the state level under the leadership of Mr. Udo Ekpenyong to summon the Chapter Chairman of the party in Abak LGA Dr. Mike Dan to suspend the ward Chairman of Abak urban ward 4 Mr. Luke Robinson Offiong for his act of lawlessness of maltreating a democratically elected councilor of his ward Hon. Mbiereobong Tom.

State Chairman of PDP Sir, Udo Ekpenyong

The youth organisation headed by Mr. Paul Okon while narrating the scenario to our correspondent on the telephone conversation expressed disappointment on the action of the ward party Chairman who he said contested the councilorship election against Hon Tom and was defeated even when the ward Chairman was the anointed candidate of the federal lawmaker Mr. Aniekan Umanah.

Mr. Paul also expressed sadness on the hatred taken too far by the ward Chairman who connived with the immediate past leader of the legislative council Mr. Solomon Udeme to bully Hon Tom at the residence of the house of representative member Mr. Aniekan Umanah who claimed to have distributed food items to the party.

The group captain said it will be unlawful if the party failed to suspend the ward Chairman as a punishment so that Mr. Luke Offiong can face the consequences of his lawless action.

It is also reported that since Mr. Mbiereobong Tom although he’s the councilor representing the federal lawmaker maker at the ward level since he was not the anointed candidate of the lawmaker is being hated by the faction.

It was gathered that the ward Chairman Mr. Luke Robinson, the immediate past leader of the legislative council Mr. Solomon Udeme and some thugs sponsored by the lawmaker maltreated the Honourable councilor and tore off his clothes.

The group, therefore, call for the immediate suspension of the ward Chairman for lack of respect to the constitution that guides those elected into public office.
