    What God has blessed, no man under the sun can curse or bring him down. Udom has been the epitome of success. The remaining two senatorial districts would follow same. Please don't be distracted as God is on your side. The people has spoken and it will come to pass. Rest assured that you will be on the saddle beyond 2019. God is your refuge and strength and a present help in times of trouble and difficulties. UGE you are the man. God bless you & Akwabasi Ibom State.
