The Akwa Ibom State branch of the African Action Congress (AAC) has announced Mrs. Caroline Danjuma as the running mate of its 2023 governorship candidate, Mr. Iboro Otu.

Monday, the party announced this in a joint statement signed by its State Chairman and Secretary, Mr. Utip Etiebet and Mr. Gabriel Ekpo, respectively.
In a statement titled “Mr. Iboro Otu of the African Action Congress Selects Mrs. Caroline Danjuma as Running Mate,” the party cited Danjuma’s exemplary life, love for humanity, leadership ability, and dedication to the betterment of Akwa Ibom communities in particular and Nigeria in general as reasons for her selection.

“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, citizens of Akwa Ibom state, and fellow Nigerians of our party’s deputy governorship candidate for the 2023 elections in Akwa Ibom state: Chief Mrs. Caroline Uduak Danjuma.

Chief Mrs. Caroline, the Obong Uwana of Eket, is a philanthropist, award-winning actress, and multinational businesswoman.

She is a member of the family of Edidem William Esiet Ekwere, the former supreme king of Eket.

She has two master’s degrees – an MBA and a Masters in International Law and Diplomacy (MILD) – in addition to numerous other international and national educational credentials.

Among her notable accomplishments are assisting in the separation of the conjoined Ayeni Twins, advocating for the rights and freedom of Lybian slaves, feeding over 3,000 people on multiple occasions, providing medical assistance to women requiring fibroid operations, providing free IV financial assistance, and empowering female entrepreneurs.

AAC has now joined the ranks of political parties seeking celebrity running partners. Tonto Dikeh is doing the same for the ADC in Rivers State, while Funke Akindele is the running partner for the PDP candidate in Lagos.
