The CDC commitee should create history and make this election a remarkable one, where every competent Landlords and good residents(whether Ikwerre, Abua, Akwa Ibom, Etche, Ogoni, Bayelsa, Igbo or Yoruba living in Eagle Island) should be allowed to pick the eleco form and allow Eagle Island people to decide and choose their representatives that will govern the welfare of Eagle Island and its development.

“I am inspired to deliver Eagle Island, to make it a better place to live interms of electricity, security, environmental and to boost Eagle Island City to the world.
