Udofia, a former chairman of Uyo local government area, said the APC would have used the council election to muster grassroot support as well its political relevance ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He spoke on Saturday shortly casting his ballot at Ward 12 Unit 13 in Uyo local government area.

Udofia commended Governor Udom Emmanuel and the Akwa Ibom Independent Electoral Commission(AKISIEC) for promoting democratic participation for all political parties to contest the election.
