The Paramount ruler who equally confirmed  the re-elction of Iniobong Robson, noted  that the later "who has excellently impressed the people of Esit Eket is not wrong neither has he breached any constitutional provisions to seek re-election". 

According to the Paramount ruler, "The incumbent Chairman has really impressed the people of Esit Eket; from  all indications, it is clear that if Iniobong Robson is given the ticket, PDP will emerged victorious in the forthcoming poll.  

The Council  Chairman who was represented by his Vice,  Mr. Samuel  Itama,  wile addressing the women,  urged them to remained calm and focused in their agitation, assuring them that the party leadership will not be biased in their judgement when looked into their request.

Mr. Itama, lauded Governor Udom Emmanuel, for being a caring and listening leader. He thanked the political leader, elder Benjamin Udobia, describing him as a true father who is always standing up in defence of his people.
