An average black African are easily moved by hysteria for emotion exciton.
Though I fall under this black race, my maturity is enough thus, am not easily moved by emotions but led by the truth.Though, truth they say is always BITTER.
In the history of Akwa Ibom, there was a man that was loved, cherished, adored and even worshipped by some. I can remember vividly that day, 27th December 2017 which happened to be the day of Akwa Ibom Carol Night . I can still remember as I was in attendance. The governor had to stand up from his official seat even when everyone were all seated and even when the event was ongoing. Verily I say unto you all, it was unprecedented scene and loyalty, as Governor Udom Emmanuel leaves his official seat for Senator Godswill who happened to be a late comer that day. Aftermath of the ceremony, there were several criticisms and insults either sponsored or voluntary poured out on the humble servant for ridiculing his office by giving oot the official seat of the Governor of Akwa Ibom State to a VISITOR, who happened to be his predecessor and the then senator of ISD.
What insult did Deacon Udom not received for such humility and loyalty?
On Saturday, the 7th day of July, 2018, Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District Youths organized a Grand Endorsement Rally in honour of Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio and for the reassurance of his second term unopposed candidacy as the senator, that will be representing the Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial in the Nigeria’s Green Chamber.
What manner of love and respect could have been more than this?
But to the greatest surprise of everyone including the gods that’s if there is any, instead of showing gratitude for sure an amble gesture and love by his senatorial District’s Youths, and Akwa Ibom State under the able leadership of Mr Udom Emmanuel at large, Senator Akpabio throw tantrums at them for no cause,..collect the microphone with the inflammatory words.
”I can win elections with or without anybody, I can win elections in any political party, drop the mic and leaves the podium, and the mammoth crowd and Youths in sadness.
What did we not do because of Senator Godswill Akpabio?
On August 4th, 2018, against all odds and plea by his loyalists, supporters, party men and his people not to join the House Boy Party(APC),(Akpabio,2015). Akpabio shunned his people and declared himself a ”Nationalist” forgetting that the mandate and return power lies in the hands of his people and not in CENTRE or the presumed Federal Presence.
Boom; tendered his resignation letter in the Senate through Jackson Udom; one of his media aides from the Party Democratic Party in lieu of his new romance with the Amaka Progressive Congress.
On Wednesday 8th August,2018. Akpabio call the Muslim brothers and the Yorubas traitors, defected officially; Sorry MOVED officially from the Umbrella, and told Akwa Ibom People that he is now a Nationalist.
What a way to ridicule and mock your people in front of your visitors!
Culled from Babatope, a member of the PDP’s Board of Trustees (BoT), words,
“It is a pity. We like Akpabio as a person but politically he committed what we call political hara- kiri.
No ONE betrayed Akpabio, rather Akpabio betrayed himself.
