The monarchs chorused that Eteng Williams as an Mkpani born is their son and now is time to reciprocate the blood ties between both communities.

“For this honour and respect he has brought to us, We are announcing here today that we are unanimously endorsing him as the sole candidate for Senate in the Central come 2023.

“We are directing our people and clans to shun any opposition and troop out en mass to vote for him. We are confident that come February 2023 victory will be his”, said the Kudiden of Adun kingdom.

Responding, Rt. Hon. Williams said he was humbled by the endorsement of the royal fathers, which means that the whole Adun and Okum Kingdoms are with him all the way.

Continuing, Williams said today, he only came to intimate the monarchs before officially flagging off his Senatorial campaign in Central.

“I am grateful for this honour, which to me is a true testament to our ancestral relationship. The dream and struggle to see an Old Obubra son becoming a Senator would soon be a reality and I will not disappoint you. I will not disappoint our people”, he said.
