…says support for Governor Udom’s Completion Agenda is irreversible
Hope For Udom Emmanuel Movement (Hofuem) donates notepads to mark the occasion of Governor Udom Emmanuel‘s six years in office and Akwa Ibom State at 34.
Recall that the organization rolled out over one hundred copies of notepads in 2020 during the Akwa Ibom State at 33 celebration.
Again, the second edition has been launched and is all geared towards complementing the leadership of Gov. Udom Emmanuel and the Peoples Democratic Party.
The President Mr. Joel Archibong, a committed PDP faithful and ardent supporter of Gov. Emmanuel while briefing newsmen in Uyo reaffirmed his commitment towards supporting Governor Emmanuel in his capacity to achieve the Completion Agenda mantra.
The Hofuem progenitor, Mr. Archibong noted that the organization functions both as political and humanitarian organization with charity being one of its mandate since its existence in 2016.
In his words, Archibong said, “My admiration for the administration of His Excellency Deacon Udom Emmanuel and the People’s Democratic Party (my party) is immeasurable. I was once asked why I gave the organization the name ‘Hope’ For Udom Emmanuel Movement (Hofuem), my response was simply; ‘It will take Great Hope in God’ for His Excellency & the PDP to be re-elected in 2019 as we will experience a shocking political earthquake in the Build Up to the 2019 general elections and you can confirm all that transpired during the 2019 elections”.Let me state emphatically as a group that we kick started our campaign for the re-election of His Excellency in 2016 by going on a tour to all the LGAs in Akwa Ibom State, I recall when people told us – “Oga let’s see what he will do first now; he’s barely a year in office”, our response was that we were confident in the God-given ability of Governor Emmanuel, and that he’ll build a reputable track record; they should not forget to join us re-elect him and the PDP come 2019. Despite what transpired politically, we all could see that before 2019 we had a tsunami of industries in the State”.
Archibong went further to reveal that HOFUEM is the first organization in Akwa Ibom State to launch cloth reusable Dakkada Facemask at the breakout of the corona virus pandemic in the country.
He noted that the inspiration came when he saw an Ankara reusable facemask on a Ghanaian blog during the first unexpected lockdown.
He explained that, he himself didn’t have a facemask due to its scarcity and was equally shocked due to the increase in price to about 500 naira each at the time and wondered what will become of Akwa Ibomite who won’t have the money to buy since the medical facemask isn’t reusable.
He pointed out that the introduction of reusable facemasks by the organization initially came with attacks and negative reactions as people had not started embracing its use at the time.
Also, Mr. President revealed that HOFUEM as a registered organization in the State has vigorously supported, promoted, defended, and advanced the policies of Governor Emmanuel and the PDP.
”Aside from joining the campaign train to the 31 LGA of the State, we have also, in the past, advanced causes aimed at promoting the candidature/administration of His Excellency”. He highlighted some of Hofuem’s strides he can recall which includes;
Door-to-door campaign in the State. Voters sensitization programs in 22 LGAs.
Educational projects (donation of 200 customized exercise books, 70 biros and gift items to best class students) at Secondary Schools, including Itam Secondary School, Secondary School, Ibiaku Uruan and Uyo High School and QIC Primary School to support the free and compulsory education policy of the Governor.
20 print media publications in the build up to the 2019 Gubernatorial Elections of His Excellency and PDP.
Distribution of 305 free Dakkada facemasks.
Donation of relief materials such as rice, garri and indomie to 200 homes.
Donation of free customized hand sanitizers to 100 persons.
Donation of 10-litre hand washing liquid soaps, hand washing buckets, etc.
In his parting words, he thanked Her Excellency Deaconess Martha Udom Emmanuel for all she’s doing for the girl child and humanity at large.
Also, he thanked Governor Emmanuel, the State Executive Council members, elected officers
and all Akwa Ibomites for their commitment towards the actualization of the completion agenda and wisheveryone a happy sixth Anniversary Celebration and a joyful Akwa Ibom State at 34 Celebration in advance. He called on the good people of the State to be law abiding and patriotic even as they look forward to a greater Akwa Ibom State.
