AKPABIO AND HIS ALTER-EGO: ANY LESSON IN NEBUCHADNEZZAR FALL? (PART 1)

23 Jun

By Thomas Tomas.

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the King’s horses and all the kings’ men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again

Thousands of men have fallen from their on-top-of the world positions but had not deserved the attention of history. Not that they refused to clear their way into the reckonings of history; and not that history deliberately refuse to recognize their falls. But, perchance, because while they were on top of the world, they reasoned that a day would come when they would descend from the echelon to the ground, and their actions would either defend or crucify them.
Of a truth, the majority of the people in the world today, especially in this part of the globe are metaphorically like those who are on board an aeroplane – those they see on earth are tiny. Any leader who has an aerial view of his followers or compatriots is arrogant and is bound to fall, and once that happens, he’s gone!
King Nebuchadnezzar is an example of a leader with an aerial view of his followers/subjects. The feelings of his subjects did not matter to him. God was nothing to him either. He also destroyed God’s chosen and refused to heed God’s warning. Nebuchadnezzar was severely punished: his throne was destroyed in Babylon, while he roamed in the bush like an animal for seven years!Image may contain: one or more people and eyeglasses
Leaders like Nebuchadnezzar have a penchant for publicity. They can do anything to get publicized. Their own hypes are often mischievous – to cover up their dirty tracts. It works for them, though. This is the tactics Chief Godswill Akpabio employed while he was holding sway, such that those who were not indigenes of the Akwa Ibom State were swayed by the publicity stunts heavily sponsored by him. The former Senate Minority Leader would seize any available opportunity to reel out drums of his “uncommon transformation”. In the Senate, he abandoned legislation and pursued clownery to the detriment of the State. In fact, majority of the people of Akwa Ibom State, including his former lieutenants, had wished for Akpabio’s uncommon fall, and of course, they knew he would fall, just that they wanted it as quick and sudden as possible to commiserate his atrocious and comic reign in the State and in the Senate. Those who knew he would finally “kiss the dust” politically did not know it could happen “like play, like play” because of who Akpabio made them believe he was. Who could have believed that Senator Godswill Akpabio could be dethroned politically in less than 3 hours before the election was over against his wish? Certainly, it was, and still is, a shock, to so many people across Nigeria. Akpabio defeated?!Image may contain: 1 person, suit and text
How Akapbio fall (or fail in the last election) is not within the scope of the piece. What concerns this piece are the lessons of (or in) his fall. But it is a subject of debate for decades now among historians whether men actually learn from the lessons of history or not, hence Professor Abednego Ekoko once admitted jokingly that “history has no lessons, but the only lesson of history is that men refuse to learn from history”. What are the lessons of Akpabio’s sudden and Nebuchadnezzaric fall?
The main lesson which Akpabio’s fall teaches mankind is a lesson in humility – that is, how not to play God. Senator Akpabio in the past 12 years had carried himself as a demigod. Because of this, lives were wasted, people were humiliated and or made to fall from their grace; ethnicity was data shot with impunity. The former Governor spent the State’s resources to procure awards for himself and his wife to the extent of attempting to fight his way to the Guinness Book of Records just for self-aggrandizement. All these were to aid him in his craze to intimidate the very people he professed to govern. Then, there was so much noise in the State, and bogus names like “Ono Mkpo Inam”, “Uko Akwa Ibom”, “Utueneikang Ibibio”, “Eka Esit Mbom”, “Mother Theresa of our time’, etc. made airwaves.
Senator Akpabio treated so many people in the State like pariahs and with utter disdain. He did what was in his mind at any given time. He was able to coerce Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly to always carry out his instructions with immediate effect, and whipped every institution including the judiciary, traditional rulers, etc to his line. Arrogance! Pride! Pomposity! The Bible says “pride goes before fall”.
Secondly, Akpabio’s fall seems to set Akwa Ibom people free and restore hope and decorum (so I think). Many people would not have a chance so long as Akpabio holds sway. He would have still decided who gets what, when, and how. He would have continued to deny people their rights, and turn the minority into the majority overnight. Now, there’s a new lease of life, and Akwa Ibom people now know that they can dethrone any leader who goes against their collective aspirations.
Finally, Akpabio’s fall has taught people to respect one another no matter their status, stature, creed, religion, background, sex, etc. Senator Akpabio has now realized that he should have consulted his people before he took the decision to move to the APC. He has since discovered (though he’s yet to recover) that he has no fools for followers – that those he claimed were fools or his dependants were no fools or his dependants, after all. He has now come to his senses that he should have begged for votes, not going about with the assumption that he had done much for Annang people when he was the governor, therefore, they cannot stop voting for him to return to the Senate.
Like Nebuchadnezzar, Akpabio is now crawling on his knees, begging every Tom, Dick and Harry for leniency and for political recognition. Has Akpabio gone out of his mind like his alter-ego? But packing the entire youths of the State to the Tribunal recently is a clear sign of dementia (I may be wrong), but verily, if Akpabio will repent, and purge his mind of all arrogance and other vices, especially self-assumption, like his alter-ego, his throne may be restored (Daniel 4 verse 34-37).

RE: INI EMEMOBONG’S BLOATED EGO AND GODSWILL AKPABIO’S ETHNIC CARD. #CowardAkpabio

1 Apr

By Aniekan Ukpong

Image may contain: 1 person

We are constrained to respond to an epistle by one Sampson Sampson which sought to denigrate the person and office of Mr. Ini Ememobong, the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party.

From the tone and language of the publication, it is clear that the author is Chief Godswill Akpabio. Why Akpabio lacks the courage to own up to the publication speaks volumes about his flawed character. After his defeat at the polls by Engr. Christopher Ekpenyong, outgoing Senator Godswill has been lamenting and blaming everybody but himself. He has attributed his defeat at the polls to a conspiracy by leaders of his Party such as Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Hon Rotimi Amaechi. He has blamed the Akwa Ibom State INEC REC. Mr. Mike Igini and made several baseless and wild allegations.

Expectedly. Mr. Sampson (read Senator Akpabio) claims that Mr. Ememobong came to limelight through Akpabio’s benevolence. Sen. Akpabio and his wife have never stopped boasting that they made everybody in Akwa Ibom State. Akpabio ceaselessly seeks glory and adulation. He competes with the Almighty God for glory, adulation and worship. Anybody who had the honor and privilege to SERVE THE STATE when Akpabio was Governor is always reminded that he came from the gutters.

Akpabio not only plays god; he is loud, lousy and noisy forever seeking attention and validation because of insecurity. Are other Governors like Fashola who served at the same time with Akpabio boasting about their achievements and denigrating those who served in their administrations? Indeed the bottom line is that Akpabio lacks class. We have had other former Governors in this State. Has anybody ever heard former Governor Victor Attah boast about bringing anybody to the limelight just because the person SERVED THE STATE during his tenure? Has Attah ever boasted that he brought Godswill Akpabio and others who served under him from obscurity to limelight? Attah will never go so low because he is God-fearing and has class and proper upbringing. As Governor, Attah treated all those who served the State under him with dignity and respect and always thanked them for their contributions to the development of the State. Out of office, Attah remains a role model and father figure who is loved, respected and honored by all who served the State under him. Can the same be said of Godswill Akpabio? No. Indeed enduring respect and honor are earned by those who are deserving. Akpabio erroneously thought that respect can be bought.

He must have learnt by now that the office of Governor is not permanent and you will not be respected just because you once were a governor who shared State resources to all and sundry to buy respect. People will respect you for your integrity, comportment honor and character. Godswill Akpabio as Governor consistently humiliated and denigrated Attah.
It is shocking that Akpabio will accuse Ememobong of disrespect because as State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, he is only 35. What has age got to do with someone performing the duties of his office? Is this not the same Godswill Akpabio who (with his wife) in 2014 insulted Buhari (a former Head of State and a man old enough to be his father) Did Akpabio not dismiss Buhari as an illiterate and a senile old man? If Akpabio has forgotten or is prepared to lie as is his wont, I can send him copies of the videos now trending on YouTube.

Out of desperation, Akpabio is now trying to play the ethnic card. This is a cheap act of desperation. Akpabio wanted to be the only cock in Annang land and even Akwa Ibom. Accordingly, he destroyed prominent Annang leaders (many of whom were his benefactors) like Atuekong Don Etiebet (lucky to be alive), late Ime Umana. late Albert Ukpana, late Okon Uwah, late Chief Fidelis Etim. Did Akpabio not dim the stars of bright upcoming Annang politicians like Hon. Uwem Udoma, Hon Ekperikpe Ekpo, Hon Pat Ineme etc.

The people of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District have spoken. They rejected Akpabio because of his boastfulness and flawed character.
Sen. Godswill Akpabio is not indispensable. How does Akpabio failing his election a threat to the unity of the State? How is Mr. Ememobong by simply doing his work as PDP Publicity Secretary a threat to Akpabio and the Annang Nation? Is Akpabio more Annang than Christopher Ekpenyong, Ibok Essien, or even his cousin Prince Ukpong Akpabio- a serving commissioner in Udom Emmanuel’s administration?

As Governor Akpabio’s performance was grossly overrated against the background of the huge revenues of N3 trillion that accrued to the State between 2007 and 2015. His performance as Senator and Minority Leader was similarly mediocre with no record of outstanding leadership. How many bills of national consequence or significance did Akpabio sponsor in the Senate? His colleagues and constituents (including Emmanuel Enoidem) see Akpabio as a shameless coward and sycophant who cannot stand the heat and provide leadership when courage is required. If Obong Attah were such a coward how could he have led other distinguished Akwa Ibom sons and leaders like Sen. Udoma Udoma and Sen. Ibok Essien to win the 13 Percent Derivation battle for Akwa Ibom. The difference is that these distinguished leaders whose achievements changed the economic fortunes of Akwa Ibom have carried themselves with humility, decorum and dignity. Attah has not been boasting about his historic and monumental achievement of winning the 13 Percent battle. After Attah won the battle, Akpabio, the eternal opportunist came in to squander and waste the resources.

The truth is that Akpabio was promoted beyond his capacity and competence.
Will anybody in good conscience claim that Akpabio has created more impact in the Senate than a patriot like Senator Ibok Essien who served as Deputy Chief Whip. All those who are shedding crocodile tears because Akpabio lost an election should realize that Akwa Ibom State will thrive with or without Akpabio. There are still many leaders in the mould of Attah, Udoma and Ibok Essien who abound in this State. Nobody should write off the Senator-Elect for Akwa Ibom North East -Engr. Christopher Ekpenyong a former Deputy Governor and foundation member of the PDP who cut his business and political teeth at a time Akpabio was still roaming the streets of Lagos. Ekpeyong will do better than Akpabio who lacked real depth and substance and covered his weaknesses by being loud and lousy.

ATA IKIDDEH, A BEWILDERED PERSONALITY OF A CON ARTIST & #419

25 Mar

 

By Umoh Cosmas

Image may contain: 1 person

It can be very ridiculous when a full grown man attempts to hide behind a finger. For sure, right-thinking members of the public will never take such a personality serious, no matter how much he tries to get attention, especially when his unstable antecedents are well known.
Hiding behind a finger is what Atta Ikideh has been doing ever since his failed attempt to swindle the Akwa Ibom State government through 419 proposals. He has over time latched on frivolous statistics and concocted ‘failings’ in his attempt to ridicule and downplay the achievements of the state government.

Rather than activate a self-destruct mode through blackmail and deceitful publications, Ikiddeh may do well for himself by utilizing his resources to resuscitate his stranded law career, which he abandoned here in Nigeria, having failed to make it to the Nigerian Law School. Since he made a fortune from the last administration as a willing tool of blackmail, he should make his late father and indeed the larger Ikideh family proud by investing in meaningful ventures.

Ikideh’s latest opinion piece where he asked “why is it all bad news about Akwa Ibom State from the National Bureau of Statistics?” exposes him as one with a warped imagination who eagerly awaits bad news about his native land, Akwa Ibom. He should be aware that his recent ignoble undertakings against the state government have kept right-thinking Akwa Ibom people at home and in the diaspora wondering if he does not need a mental check. They might just be right!

It is a sad commentary that one who claims to be a patriot would go in deliberate search of bad news about his state and would go further to give vigorous publicity to dubious and politically motivated negative statistics. The question is, where was Attah Ikideh when the same NBI rated Akwa Ibom state, under the leadership of Governor Udom Emmanuel as the second best destination for Foreign Direct Investment in Nigeria? How much publicity did he give to that rating?

The antics of Ikiddeh’s ilk are well known to those of us who have consistently follow developments in Akwa Ibom state. Once they fail to get what they want, they resort to blackmail and lend themselves to spent paymasters and drowning godfathers, whose trade in stock is to whip undue sentiments against a focused administration like we presently have in Akwa Ibom State.
It is public knowledge that Akwa Ibom government, through its Health Commissioner, has satisfactorily addressed the NBS rating of Akwa Ibom as the state with the highest prevalence rate in the 2018 national survey. In case Ikideh is not aware, HIV prevalence has been on the decline since Governor Udom came on board. While the state’s prevalence was 10.8% in the 2014 national survey, it dropped to 5.5% in the 2018 survey.
On the latest rating of the State as having the highest cost of living, the likes of Ikiddeh should be informed that it is not every statistics reeled out by agencies that should be taken hook, line and sinker. While an agency like the NBS may have done well in time past, it is not unlikely that its recent activities may have been politically motivated.

Dazed by the outcome of the last general elections in Akwa Ibom State, especially the sweet victory of Governor Udom Emmanuel, it is pitiful that Ikideh and his co-travellers are still befuddled, and therefore, have continued their search for anything that will keep them on the payroll of their equally stunned paymasters.
The pains of the resounding loss by Ikideh’s masters is understandable. Nevertheless, it is high time he turned a new leaf and team up with the rest of us Akwa Ibom sons and daughters who have vowed to stop at nothing is supporting Governor Emmanuel to realize the dream of a greater state, where peace, progress and development stand in bold relief.
A word is enough for the wise!

Of #Warsaw and the #VictorySong

18 Mar

By Emmanuel Ndon
Image may contain: 1 person, standing
Until late last year, very little was held about the memory of Warsaw because of its brutish elements. But the Polish city gained prominence in Nigeria’s political lexicon when former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) with search engines linking Akpabio with entries on Warsaw.

For the purpose of a brief introduction, Warsaw was the most damaged city of World War II. The Nazis killed many more people in Warsaw than even in Hiroshima and Nagasaki which suffered atomic bomb attacks. Warsaw also achieved its prominence as the capital of Poland. The death and destruction in Warsaw resulted from a long history of anti-Polish sentiment in Germany intensified by Hitler’s antipathy towards Poland and the Polish people. Hitler saw the Jews and Slavs as the primary threat to Germany.

Senator Akpabio during the build-up to the political campaigns had threatened that the APC which he had defected to, would take over Akwa Ibom State like German dictator, Adolf Hitler, took over Poland. Speaking about his defection at a funeral ceremony in Enugu State, the Senator said “..it was watched in 59 countries and somebody asked what happened there, and I said just how it happened in Poland. When they did ask Hitler’s minister of information about the war in Poland, and he said Warsaw saw war and war saw Warsaw…I will say that in 2019 Warsaw shall see war and war shall see Warsaw. The return will be a victory. May God grant us all victory”.

Since that infamous outbursts, it was believed that Akpabio had declared war on Akwa Ibom people following his earlier promise to stop the state governor, Udom Emmanuel, from having a second term in office. And in response to that, the people also prepared to match Akpabio albeit through the ballot.

Senator Akpabio has a penchant for unguarded utterances. His Warsaw anecdotes were preceded by a series of superficial boasts which alluded to his supremacy and all-conquering personality. He had told President Buhari, prior to the elections, that he was going to deliver Akwa Ibom State to the APC in an election he said would last not more than three hours. Given such a wide mouth, nobody will doubt that Akpabio had the state in his pockets, and can trade out anyhow he wishes. In another breath, he boasted that Governor Udom Emmanuel can never get a second term because the PDP died the very day he left the party.

These and many other vituperations, to a large extent, were vexatious to the people of the state who believed strongly that Akpabio’s power and influence were bestowed on him by the people, hence he could not have been invincible.

Indeed, his utterances built up a lot of tension while everyone was surprised over the sinister intention of Akpabio to unleash terror on the very people who made him ascend the throne, and on whom he still intends to represent in the National Assembly. The same feeling resonated at the party. The Peoples Democratic Party has been the party of the people and it was the same platform Akpabio rode to power, yet the same party he chose to abandon without any reasonable explanation. This explains why Senator Akpabio could not win a return ticket to the Senate. It was never in any way a result of compromise or manipulation but a perfect resolve of the people to whom power belongs.

To a large extent, the people’s resolve and prayers doused the mounting tensions and storms which gathered during the elections. Truly speaking, the All Progressives Congress bigwigs had orchestrated some dangerous gambits capable of instilling fear and violence in the state. It was strange to find the Army, for instance, launch Operation Show of Force few days to the election, in spite of the widely acknowledged peaceful nature of the state. Prior to the elections too, the commissioner of police had been changed twice. There were viral videos and audios exacerbating drums of war.
Indeed, most of these threats came to be during the election. On the first date where elections were eventually postponed, at least ten vehicles conveying electoral materials and personnel were burnt in Obot Akara in Akpabio’s Ikot Ekpene senatorial district. During the presidential and national assembly elections, Senator Akpabio was said to have allegedly abducted electoral officials in a bid to manipulate election figures. The same incident was also reported against him during the governorship and House of Assembly polls of March 9.

On Wednesday, stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ikot Ekpene senatorial district unveiled the many atrocities the senator and his agents and supporters allegedly committed during the election. At a press conference led by the party leader in the area, Chief Michael Afangideh, the party highlighted how electoral officials were manhandled in PDP strongholds in a bid to falsify election results in favour of APC.

Part of the communique read: “That after INEC had distributed materials to the Voting Units andPoints; Senator Godswill O. Akpabio used Military men in Armoured Vehicles and “Policemen” in 6 Hilux Vehicles to pack Election Materials and Ad-hoc Staff of INEC in some Wards and Units into his Coaster Bus and took them to the compound of Barr. Ibanga Akpabio where APC members thumb-printed the ballot papers in favour of APC. The Wards/Units affected were as follows:- (i) All the Units in Ukana West Ward 2 (ii) All the Units in Ukana West Ward 1 (iii) All the Units in Ukana East Ward1 (iv) All the Units in Ekpenyong Ward 1 (v) All the Units in Odoro Ikot Ward 2. The above malpractice was immediately reported by PDP Agents in the Units, Wards and Local Government to the Electoral Officer, Essien Udim Local Government Area in writing”.

It said, “Senator Godswill O. Akpabio used his brother, SUPOL Idorenyin Akpabio, who is O/C, Anti-Robbery at the Akwa Ibom State Police Headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia, in company of other policemen to shoot gun from Unit to Unit in the said Wards of theL.G.A to carry INEC materials and arrest some PDP supporters who were detained on that Election Day at Essien Udim Divisional Police Cell, Nto Nsek. Those detained were only released at the night of the Election Day”.

The stakeholders rejected totally the published Results of the 2 Wards of Adiasim and Ukana East which they said were procured under duress, and urged Senator Godswill O. Akpabio, “our son, to desist from further advertising of his declining and dwindling political status in the Country by false Press interviews that deepen his failing image before reasonable thinking members of the Nigerian society”.

Other instances of Senator Akpabio’s unguarded utterances could be traced to the past. During his reign as governor, the first of such missiles was his attack on his predecessor, Obong Victor Attah, whom he accused of leaving behind an empty treasury. This verbal attack ensured that Akpabio remained on a collision course with the elder statesman all through is eight-year tenure.

Akpabio had also bragged that he alone could determine who becomes what in the state. Thus, other than his official status as governor, he also ordained himself kingmaker of the state. At one occasion, he had intimated how he replaced the winner of an election by the crossing of his name.

His electoral conquests were often characterized by needless battles. This had set off a series of atrocities including kidnapping, assassination, etc, which characterized his eight-year reign of terror. A typical instance was the 2011 elections where so many people were kidnapped or assassinated as well as the theatre of blood which political campaigns eventually became. Thus, it was not to be taken with kid gloves when he proclaimed his Warsaw saw war and war saw Warsaw.

It must be noted that Senator Akpabio’s political life has been mendacious. Even when he preached zoning of political offices in the state, it was nothing more than rhetoric. For instance, everybody knew that Eket senatorial district would produce a governor after him, many including him had thought it would go to Oron extraction. Akpabio had nominated two people from Oron with corresponding empowerment with political appointments only to abandon them thereafter.

When he was about to step down as governor, his senatorial ambition was against the zoning principle in Ikot Ekpene. As at that time, it was the turn of Abak 5, but he overruled it. He got away not only because he was governor, but because he had the love and support of the people.
The lesson here is that his political exploits did not necessarily emanate from his prowess, but flowed from the kind support of the people. It must also be said here that in spite of his reign of terror, he could still sail through because the people were still behind him. His downfall came the very day he left the PDP because he lost the support of the people. Note also that the people here are at home with the PDP. His rejection by the people could be seen from the number of people that followed him to the APC – a paltry two commissioners (one his blood brother) and an initial one House of Assemblymember (from his constituency).

Evidently, his fall is a massive failure. Of course, it came first from his very own constituency. And then all the five former House of Assembly members that were to join him later in the APC, all lost their elections. It is the same story with the former commissioner who contested for Oron federal constituency seat. This is the testimony of a man who has been rejected along with everyone around him.

Senator Akpabio must begin to learn lessons in leadership. First, he must admit that the people made him and not otherwise. That the pride and arrogance to which he was soaked, are as always, the banana peels of leadership.
In this direction, it was unwise for the Senator to deride the outcome of the elections because of his failure. This is perhaps the first time any election conducted in the state has been peaceful, despite his threats of war. It is the first time campaigns went without blood – no kidnapping, no assassination, no gunshots anywhere. Now, peace has come to stay in Akwa Ibom State. Let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end. Akwa Ibom has been liberated from bondage, cultism, and occultic affiliations.

Akpabio only needs to retrace his steps and beg for forgiveness from Akwa Ibom people less he sinks into the abyss. As he rightly noted in his Warsaw chants, the return has brought victory, albeit not for him but for the people and the state.

Udom replies Akpabio: You didn’t build a single company in 8 years but I have built 9 in three years

Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel says his achievements in office shows that he is not a mistake.

He said this while responding to Godswill Akpabio, his predecessor, who described him as a mistake that must be rejected in 2019.

Akpabio who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this at a rally in Ikot Ekpene.

AFTER CRIPPLING STATE OWN FOUR POINTS SHERATON, SENATE MINORITY LEADER AKPABIO MOVES TO CALABAR TO BUILD MULTI-BILLION NAIRA HOTEL

Responding through Charles Udoh, his commissioner of information, the governor said Akpabio has mortgaged his conscience and is now attempting to deceive Akwa Ibom people.

“A governor that records the achievements despite the challenges of an epileptic national economy cannot be a mistake,” Udoh told TheCable.

“I doubt if there is any first term governor in Nigeria who has recorded this level of achievement.

Godswill Akpabio spent eight years as commissioner under Obong Attah; spent eight years as governor at the height of the state’s income receipts from the federal government yet he couldn’t complete Uyo-Ikot Ekpene road (the road to his village) despite appropriating almost all the sums budgeted for the project.

Four Points By Sheraton Ikot Ekpene: Akpabio Commissioned a Building Not a Hotel, We Need Over N2.5 Billion to make it a Hotel – Governor Udom Emmanuel

“Godswill also commissioned an uncompleted building with rented furniture and fitting and called it 4 Points Sheraton Hotel.

FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON HOTEL: AN INDICTMENT OF GOVERNOR UDOM

Udom has, as at today, facilitated the setting up of more than nine industries in just three years; Godswill spent eight years with zero industry

“It’s unfortunate that Akpabio has mortgaged his conscience and is now attempting to deceive Akwa Ibom people. Akwa Ibom people are wiser.”

How Saraki Got to Control Buhari’s Kinsman, Lawal Daura #illuminatipolitics

8 Aug

-Gimba Kakanda

Image may contain: 1 person, standing
I know a lot of you don’t know the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, beyond the media. He seems like a normal person, but if you’ve watched him closely, you would’ve noticed that he closes one eye too often. Why? Saraki is an Illuminati agent, and only a few people knew about this.
 
Those of us who knew Saraki’s Illuminati background are hardly shocked by how he outsmarted every politician from his father to President Buhari. Of course, it’s not ordinary. You don’t need any proof. You only need to study how he has maneuvered his ways to power over the years and managed to resist any gang-up.
 
After the 2015 elections, the CPC and ACN blocs of APC invited Saraki to a meeting. “We don’t want you as Senate President,” they said. Saraki paused as though to reflect, stood up gently, and chanted, “Novus Ordo Seclorum.” They froze. “What did you say?” Saraki asked.
 
“N-nothing, nothing,” they stammered. He nodded and smiled.
 
These CPC and ACN errand boys who met Saraki became his supporters from that night. Everyone in APC was shocked. Our journalists who had interviewed those men in the past couldn’t connect the dots. It didn’t make sense to them, that sudden support from his erstwhile political foes.
 
What Saraki did from that point was the move of an Illuminati master. He visited his senator friends one after the other to appeal to them to support him. All the ones he got to look at with one eye closed while chanting “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” ended up supporting him.
 
Saraki was always smooth. Once he identified a threat, he cast his Illuminati spell to neutralize it. It’s how he got his fellow senators to be submissive. However many of his colleagues know about his spiritual powers, and so they avoid his gaze. Guess who told them. Tinubu!
 
Tinubu too is an Illuminati agent, that’s why the war was tough for Saraki. Tinubu was always quick to reveal Saraki’s secret. It’s the reason Fashola and others didn’t look Saraki straight in the eyes when they were being screened as Ministers. They knew about his powers.
 
Why do you think Hamid Ali was avoiding the Senate? Why do you think the Inspector-General of Police was also afraid? Because they got scared when Tinubu told them about it. That’s also how Danladi Umar of CCT trial was neutralized. He was forming gangster until Saraki got him.
 
Supreme Court justices were the easiest for Saraki. He invited them for tea, one after the other, a day to the judgement in his asset declaration trial. He got to look into their eyes and took possession of their mind. The next day, they unanimously acquitted him of wrong-doing.
 
Now you also understand why Saraki often stared at Buhari, especially when they’re seated in the same row, either at an event or in the mosque. If he could get to our IGP and make him stutter “transmission of transmission” repeatedly before the camera, imagine what would’ve happened if the IG had met him face to face.
 
Since you yet make sense of how Saraki got Buhari’s kinsman, Lawal Daura, to do his bidding, this is how it happened. Unlike the Customs and Police bosses, the DSS boss was naive. He looked into Saraki’s eyes and lost control of himself. And the rest, as they say, is history.
 
If you believed this before you got here, I’ll advise you to first quietly mail your certificates back to the schools that offered them to you. You obviously don’t deserve them. Shebi you see that we all can write nonsense! 🙄

Akpbio angles Victor Antai for Governor, Jettisons, Ekere, Udoeghe.

…Unoama Akpabio for Deputy Governor

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

Senator Godswill Akpabio is strongly rooting for Hon. Victor Antia, the just relieved Commissioner for Culture and Tourism to become the APC gubernatorial candidate and subsequently the governor of Akwa Ibom State. A close source to Akpabio told Mega Times that Akpabio has vowed to oppose the NDDC Director, Mr. Nsima Ekere and Chief John James Akpanudoeghe.
“I can confirm that Chief Akpabio is strongly eyeing Honourable Victor Antai with the condition that his wife, Ekaete Unoma Akpabio is made the Deputy Governor, a position he wanted Governor Udom Emmanuel to accent to curry his support but Udom turned down.” the source said.
