The Centre is to serve as a response mechanism for all party supporters who are currently victims of Police overzealousness, intimidation, illegal arrest and detention, malicious prosecution and other forms of highhandedness intended to hamper a level playing field for all parties during the build-up to the forthcoming general elections.

The director general of the Divine Mandate Campaign Organisation, Otuekong Idongesit Nkanga, while performing the inauguration at the weekend in Uyo said the centre is to, among other responsibilities, tackle issues bordering on fears which has ostensibly overwhelmed the electorate due to the chants of war songs by the main opposition party.

Otuekong Nkanga urged them to hit the ground running to ensure that the seeming fears which may scare electorate away from polling units is allayed.

Other members of the centre are Hon Udo Ekpenyong, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Capt Iniobong Ekong, Akparawa Michael Bush, Barr Ini Ememobong – PDP publicity secretary, Mr Victor Ukpong, Mr Essien Ndueso, Isantim Kenneth Okon, and Barr Sam Ikpo.

Chairman of the Centre, Barr Andem Ndem commended the campaign organisation for the composition of the centre saying that it is made up of competent professionals who have made laudable marks in their various careers.

Ndem assured that they will deliver on their mandate.

Present at the inauguration were Elder Benjamin Udobia- Deputy Director General, Divine Mandate, Hon. Prince Enobong Uwah – Secretary Divine Mandate, Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Hon Monday Ebong Uko, and Hon Emmanuel Ibiok, the Director of Public Communications in the campaign team.
