The Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Aniekan Umanah may regret having reacted to Senator Udoedeghe’s interview on Planet 101 FM penultimate week due to a salvo sent to him by Senator Udoedeghe’s aide Hon. Ubong Ime.
The Uyo born former Councilor, while reacting to a certain publication in a local tabloid credited to Mr. Aniekan Umanah against his boss, described Mr Aniekan Umanah and his boss, Gov. Godswill Akpabio as “thieves”, adding that Mr Aniekan Umanah is too small for a man like Senator Udoedeghe to join issues with. “I can’t blame him because he is defending his master who has stolen over 500 Billion Naira, and wasted over 3 Trillion Naira meant for Akwa Ibom people” he said.
The former Council Legislator described the Information boss’ question regarding the performance of Udoedeghe at the Senate as “nonsense”, maintaining that it was Senator John James Akpan Udoedeghe that made the ‘Resource Control’ battle easy and possible.
“My boss cannot join issues with thieves. I want the public to know that Aniekan Umana is a thief and an empty opportunist. He used to operate a make-shift restaurant in Lagos before Akpabio clannishly brought him to limelight. Who was Aniekan before now? He had no single house for years, but now he has bought 12 houses in Lagos, using different names. So my master cannot join issues with a thief who hitherto was a fraudster”.
Hon. Ubong Ime also stated that “if Aniekan Umanah really wants to know what my master (Udoedeghe) did while in the Senate, he should know that he (Udoedeghe) was instrumental to a the political resolution of the Resource Control problem between the State and the Obasanjo-led Federal Government by taking Ibibio Elders to Aso Rock to plead with the then President; and had also sponsored several bills that led to the abrogation of the On Shore/Off Shore Dichotomy. In 1999, as a Member of the Senate Committee on Finance and Appropriation, Senator John James Akpan Udoedeghe was the one that caused the inclusion of 13% derivation in the 1999 Budget. So even the money Aniekan Umanah and his master are stealing was brought to the State by Senator Udoedeghe. Infact, those the Senator led to the then President are still alive; Dr. Uko, Dr. Akpan Obong, Nne Isong, etc.
“There’s no Local Government Area that did not benefit from Udoedeghe’s constituency projects such as provision of primary school blocks, pipe borne water, electricity, etc; and the contractors were locals. There are records to back up my claims”
He also stated that his boss had made personal donations including building an ante-natal clinic in the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, stressing that the road linking Ikot Abasi and Nsit Ubium was Udoedeghe’s NDDC project, and advised the Information Commissioner to stop casting aspersions on the former Minister of the FCT.
Hon. Ubong Ime who is rumored to be eyeing the Uyo seat in the State House of Assembly come 2015, further stated that his boss was instrumental to the siting of Atlantic FM in Nwaniba during his membership in the Senate Committee on Information.
“If he (Aniekan Umana) still wants to know what Udoedeghe did, he should know that he made Akpabio Governor, and so the money they are stealing is my boss’s effort .He asserted
