Usen, an award winning journalist and former Editor of defunct Newswatch Magazine chronicled the journey of Eno in a 400 page book titled “And It Came To Pass” launched as part of activities to celebrate the governor’s one year anniversary in the state.

Setting the tone for the book launch yesterdau, a former National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Chairman of Maintain Peace Movement in the state Emmanuel Enoidem (SAN) said the title of the book was appropriate considering the travails which Eno went through in his journey to become the governor of Akwa Ibom

“There is no better title to the book as put up by the Author Anietie Usen than the one he cleverly chosen for the book.It encapsulates all that happened prior to the emergence of Umo Eno and his subsequent victory at the poll .

“The book captured the announcement of Umo Eno as the next governor of the state after Udom Emmanuel . The prophecy came from the Lord.It was the first time that all the aspirants came together to elect one of them,Umo Eno as a governor.

“Consequently, all the political gladiators in the state have come together to accept Umo Eno as the governor of the state.” Enoidem said.

Reviewing the book, Prof Effiong Johnson of Department of Communication Art , University of Uyo categorized the book among the biographical literary works

“The book falls into the class of literature known as biographical books . It is a parody.The narrative adopts a biblical form.The book is a chronicle of event that come pass.The book adopt a documentary approach known as Docu factuality .

“From page 13- 23 captures all the legal intrigues that brought about the emergence of Umo Eno . It is a book to be studied to know how politics is played.It is a record of truth and facts.The book has a filmic approach by using pictures of how Eno was and how he is now.” Johnson said.

Usen, the Author of “Audacity Of Journalism”, “The Village Boy” which won United Nations award and other books to his credit said the book must be read by those who don’t like readings .

“Every good things come from above. Governor Umo Eno is a perfect gift for AKwa Ibom. Even those who don’t like reading books will read this one.” Usen said.
