“On behalf of our great party, the African Action Congress and the Iboro Otu Governorship Campaign Organisation, we write to inform members of our great party, Akwa Ibom state citizens and fellow Nigerians of our party’s deputy governorship candidate for the 2023 elections in Akwa Ibom state in the person of Chief Mrs. Caroline Uduak Danjuma.
“Chief Mrs. Caroline, the Obong Uwana of Eket, is an international businesswoman, award-winning actress and philanthropist.
“She is from the family of the former paramount ruler of Eket, His Royal Majesty, Edidem William Esiet Ekwere.
“She is a lover of education with two masters degrees – an MBA and a Masters in International Law and Diplomacy (MILD) – among a host of other international and national educational qualifications.
“Some of her outstanding works include her support in separating the conjoined Ayeni Twins, advocating for the rights and freedom of Lybian slaves, feeding over 3,000 people on numerous occasions, providing medical assistance to women requiring fibroid operations, providing free IV financial assistance and empowering female entrepreneurs.”
