Erstwhile Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Investments, Commerce and Industry, Emmanuel Enoidem, is set to emerge as the next National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Enoidem is contesting for the post in the coming elective national convention of the party.
Already, Enoidem has got the open endorsement and proclamation of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel.
Emmanuel expressed his support for Enoidem when he was receiving over 10,000 youth of Eket Senatorial District who marched to show support for him at the Government House in Uyo.
Governor Emmanuel, who is the leader of the party in the state, announced that it was the wish of the party in the state to present Enoidem.
He assured the youth that Enoidem would be the next legal adviser of the national working committee of the PDP.
Governor Emmanuel told his kinsmen that he felt obliged to show them his candidate for the position of national legal adviser of the party before going to the polls, and solicited for their support.
Governor Emmanuel had received affirmative response when he asked the youths rhetorically, “Do you know him, do you want him, should we send him?”
The position of Legal Adviser has been zoned by the PDP to favour Akwa Ibom State, and the pronouncement has put to rest, speculations on who should be the unanimous candidate fielded by the state contingent to the PDP convention which holds in December, 2017.
Enoidem, 53 has a vast wealth of experience in politics and public service.
He had served as chairman of Etim Ekpo local government area, state treasurer of the PDP as well as member of the state executive council who superintended three different ministries for nine consecutive years.
Before venturing into politics, he had practised Law and taught at the Faculty of Law, University of Uyo.
