Margaret Itauma, AKISAN President

It is time I addressed something and I say this without mincing words .

If you are not happy for a person when they do well and climb, God will close the road when your turn comes too !

I looked in the forums and the congratulations to the new President of AKISAN; Margaret Itauma,can be counted on my fingers. There are men of repute that are Doctors, Professors etc. There are women of repute. There are people who run their mouths in this forum all day long. They suddenly are found absent and do not feel that this woman deserves any congratulations.

With the eye of a scientist, I watch the old boys club unable to hide the sexism that has been the foundation of our society from the mist of time.

So, therefore, I step forward to congratulate this woman for her bravery and courage and fortitude.

I congratulate President Margaret Itauma for taking on this task with an Organization that is not in its best configuration. Anybody would think it wise to concentrate on their life and stay away from something that will add more stress to their life and maybe controversy to their name but she has decided to do something about it. A very courageous Lady.

I may be a bit elusive in my existence but I am passionate about Diaspora and the fact that when we do well we do not forget about home. Moreover, I believe that AKISAN is our thing on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.

With the recent political monkey business of the likes of Senator Akpabio and the slew of highly corrupt politicians in either party, we cannot overemphasize the relevance of AKISAN.

It would be good to have AKISAN become as powerful as other any other Indigenous Lobby in the United States ! It would serve as a buffer and many other things I do not want to get into today .

Let’s not forget that it is not the politics of women that have run Akwa Ibom State and Nigeria into the ground but rather the politics of men!

That brings me to the next point. It could be expected and not strange to see the men act like the new President of AKISAN is beneath them because she is female. Nonetheless, the most stupid display of injudiciousness on earth is a fellow Akwa Ibom woman in Diaspora that brings down her counterpart in a world that women are questioned in positions of leadership.

There are some people by nature that if they are not in the limelight they will bury you alive because they feel they should be the only ones that matter!

The picture of President Margaret Itauma after her victory with the medallion on her neck could be interpreted as anybody’s daughter and she represents them all.

My advice to President Margaret Itauma is that with the madness of the upcoming Gubernatorial elections and manifestations of all the “recycled” politicians and their supporters in Diaspora that she remembers she has seen this movie before. That she stands firm and protect the dignity and integrity of Diaspora and that when the storm is over she will still have AK

ISAN to improve in a way that her name will be remembered.

I also pray that everybody will rally behind her and show her support and love and challenge her intellect in a good way to operate at a higher level than previous administrations.

Once again, congratulations President Margaret Itauma. May God bless you and may this be the beginning of a long and illustrious career of service to the people of Akwa Ibom State in the diaspora and beyond.
