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.”

President #MargaretItauma, May God Bless You and Protect You From The Monkeys and Scorpions

21 Aug

By Clayton Udoh

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.

A MUST READ A BEAUTIFUL STORY OF WITCHES, THE COVEN, AND THE ALLIEN.  A Big Witch, #JudasAkpabio Meets the Witches

19 Aug


By Emmanuel Nicholas

#READ ON …

Only a fool tests the depth of a river with both feet and Knowledge is like a garden: If it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.

The reproach of Akwa rumblesIbom All Progressive Congress, APC is a breathtaking ovum, when you see unfriendly witches forming a common coven. Expect the unthinkable.

As they were trying to manage their deep hate for one another, suddenly an alien demon appeared in their midst from the opposite force, having undue negative antecedent against each of them. What a situation of confusion??

The confusion rumbles their minds and leaves them with so many mind-blowing questions. should we accept him? Should we celebrate him? who knows his mission ? is it to build us or to destroy us? The witches are into lamentations.

In the wake of this confusion, they all keep a smiling face, they began to dance. Their lord says, Bring It On, So You Think You Can Dance, and You Got Served? Well, the dance troops are back, but this time, it’s with witches of APC.

The coloration of their dance steps was too artificial, it xrays the State of their minds. because the dance was not flowing. They tried hard to hide the State of their minds behind dark goggles but their thought is buried with anger which was the modulator of their steps.

The witches celebrate him to obey the Abuja shrine so that they will not be booted out of their various appointed positions.
This confirms the holy words from the Bible that says, when the children of God were gathering, suddenly Satan appeared in their midst, the leprous hand of the witchdoctor is the agony of the witches and the poison of this viperous intruder gives them a sleepless night.

Everyone in this coven is in shock, their media hirelings are most hit , before they were attacking the intruder, calling him looter, Murderer, kidnapper, and assassin.
But just in minutes their National Coven, out of desperation, to continue to dominate their victim, Nigeria, made their accuser a saint.

How will Global Concord be able to tell the allien again that you are the killer of the two Ewet brothers? How would Global post be able to tell him you have looted three trillion from Udom’s Government? How will Guide Newspapers be able to tell his wife, you are a ritualist?,

Solomon Johnny your hands are now tied to the back, by the witches of your own coven, how will you be a dog that will eat his own vomits, I’m waiting to witness that sacrilegious act. Owo Ibibio esinama Ndudue .

I want to see my friend Thomas Tomas writing one full page of an article, recording the uncommon transformation, now he is the New leader of his Party. My dear Thomas, I dont envy your contradictory thoughts.

Men who underestimate the evil of a prostitute, sleep with their two eyes closed on the same bed, but a man of wisdom tarries till morning to save his life and belongings . Get wisdom.

When you are driving a car with a known enemy you will break most times, even when there is no prevailing obstruction ahead. what causes that is the fear of the unknown.

When you’re on your way to sacrifice your brother and you meet him about to sacrifice you. Nsima Ekere and co was planing how they going to probe their allien , now the allien is a member of their coven . who will probe who?

Witch 1 – Nsima Ekere after the rally in Ikot Ekpene met with his group in Ewet housing and told them openly ,the war we were fighting from far, have been brought into our house .

We must brace up , from the Intel from ASO Rock I’m not his favorite , we have to reject him as our leader , we must use a third party in sending Abuja this messages, to ensure we weaken his influence and we are not known to be the one behind it .

Witch 2 Obong Umana OKon Umana gathered his followers, and said , the cobra has found his ways into our waters ,a green snake operating under the disguise of green grass is within our coven.
Oh Umana , Akpan Okon Mmekid ifot essien ,akapa ifot Ufok . how do we fight this battle?

Instead of us to destroy Udom, let us work to destroy our common enemy within us . They say vengeance belongs to God, but let’s retaliate the small ones on earth , when we get to heaven let God judge us all.

The truth of hell is known from the voices of tormented and the prayers of the diviners are known from crookedness of it evil contents.The voices of the witches are true contents of their fears.

One can read the agonies of the witches from their meetings . and the presence of the alien in APC ,. this is a clear case of when men slept, Satan came to sow tears .

Witch 3,.. John Udoedehe, gathers his elects and said, few months ago I told you that all the killers have left PDP to APC in Akwa Ibom State. .You know I’m a member of mountain of fire Church , I saw that vision when I was in my 40 days fasting on the mountain .
Can you people believe me ? Are the killers not in APC now ?

These men whom I was fighting from afar are now with me , se Ekong Mkpatian Ukot ndito-ekammi ?

Witch 4, Ita Awak , I wonder what will be his operandi , a man whom he has tagged so many evil names ,is now his gaurdian Angel . Ita who is a known sorcerer and mystic , could not see this abomination approaching his plane , he could not gather divinities to block the allien from having access without premissive code .
Obong Ita Awak I doubt your crystal balls clarity .

The tusk of an elephant feeds the mouth ,but if is cut off how will an elephant survive? The elephant assumes it has the bigest penis but when it sees what dangles between the legs of a horse, he will know , impotence trails his ancestors .

APC witches thought they have seen it all , little did they know , that tusanmi is coming, a negative force that will break them apart was at the door .

Some say the Allien wants to install someone from Esit Ekid , some say he is coming with Oro Agenda and some even say ,his mission is to destroy APC and secure Udom sucesss in 2019.

The divination of a witch doctor is seen as a black magic but the conjurations of the ocult is captured as celestial masturbation. the witches and the allien are in melodrama , a dilema ,so complicated ,an equation a man of mere eyes cannot resolve .

When men are intentional wicked , and hunt for power without CONCIENCE, they mortgage their integrity because of greed .

People blames Satan for their evil greed , let me tell you a paedophile isn’t one because he has no access to women to have sex with, One is a pedophile because they’re attracted to children. Greedy leaders are men of evil assumptions and they want to be worship as demigod.

While we are watching this movie, will evil overcome evil ?

Governor Udom Emmanuel second term is sacrosant .

No man is greater than God.

APC VC CALL FOR AKPABIO TO DECAMP FROM PDP & JOIN APC IS FRAUDULENT

24 Jul

BY INIBEHE EFFIONG

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

The fact that APC members in Akwa Ibom State are trying to lure Senator Godswill Akpabio to their fold has further strengthened my position that the APC and the PDP are one and the same.

It is an insult to the people of Akwa Ibom State for Mr. Hilliard Etta, the APC National Vice Chairman South-South, to ask Akpabio to decamp from the PDP and join APC while asking Governor Udom Emmanuel to account for the money of the State.

Has Akpabio accounted for the trillions he received and mismanaged? Mr. Etta should be ashamed of himself.

Akpabio is the greatest tragedy that has happened to Akwa Ibom State since its creation in 1987. I find it highly reckless for APC to now be enticing the very man who supervised one of the most violent and fraudulent elections ever witnessed in the history of the Akwa Ibom State.

My opinion about the leadership of Mr. Udom Emmanuel is not hidden. However, it is provocative for those who parade themselves as Change Agents to be singing the praises of Akpabio while attacking the very governor that Akpabio imposed on the people of Akwa Ibom State.

The desperation to capture power is driving people insane. You cannot praise Akpabio and attack Udom at the same time. Politicians should exude a modicum of decency.

Under Akpabio, atrocities and criminality were elevated to state policies. Political assassination, cultism, tribalism and massive corruption are evils which were watered by the murderous regime of Akpabio. That is the same person that the APC in Akwa Ibom State is shamelessly luring to join them.

If Akpabio fights with Udom Emmanuel, it is clearly inconsequential to some of us. They can strangle themselves. Heaven will not fall. Akpabio does not have the moral right to complain about whatever misdeeds are taking place under his successor. He sowed a seed and should reap its fruit.

Obviously, the only thing that is important to the APC in Akwa Ibom State today is power. They want to capture power. That is all that matters to them. That is why they are not engaging the State government on policies and issues. It is about political power and politics and nothing more.

It is indeed a shame.

A PROFILE OF UDOM EMMANUEL’S GOVERNMENT

21 Jul

 

By Clement Ikpatt
Image may contain: 1 person, suit

Almost three and a half years since inauguration and only seven months to the 2019 governorship election, Akwa Ibomites can correctly profile Udom Emmanuel’s government as being:

1. Controversial And Dishonest

Udom Emmanuel promised to continue all policies and projects embarked upon by his predecessor. He also gave highfalutin promises to complete the Ibaka Deep Seaport, significantly industrialize the State initiate and develop many new projects.

Soon after he was sworn in, as if on campaign stomps, he went about performing groundbreaking ceremonies of projects he would soon abandon.

Udom Emmanuel’s habit of breaking promises quickly morphed into a culture of controversies, lies and scams. On record, we have the Armored Vehicles Assembly Plant lie, 2,000 Mexican Cows Ranch lie, Statewide industrialization scam, 600 hectares Rice Farm scam, Fertilizer Blending Plant scam, 1,700 km Roads and 37 bridges lie, N8 billion Eket-Ibeno Road controversy, Pencil and Toothpick Factory scandal and the Peacock Paint controversy,

Also, we have the 100 containers of used and unserviceable biomedical equipment scandal, Tomato Farms/Millionaires scam, dilapidated public schools scandal, International Worship Center controversy, Lagos Lodge controversy and the ExxonMobil 21 Storey Building scam. The list grows longer and longer with every passing week.

2. Unaccountable

For three years in a row, Udom Emmanuel has squandered tremendous goodwill and has failed to give a satisfactory account of the peoples’ money and mandate for good governance.

Udom Emmanuel’s government is very secretive. It has refused to give an acceptable account of about N800 billion (and rising) revenue received since inauguration in May 2015. Also, it has refused to give accounts of inherited debt burden, over $103 million of Paris Club money refunds, over N145 billion of verified revenue committed to Federal infrastructure, NASS approved of refund Ñ78 billion.

3. Youth Unfriendly

Udom Emmanuel is youth unfriendly. He believes in buying over the youths only when they are needed. Not withstanding the N89 million per month allocation to the DAKAADA scheme, there are no planned social safety nets put in place for Akwa Ibom youths.

Udom Emmanuel’s government has neglected and ignored the youths by failing to create jobs for them or provide a good enabling environment for jobs creation. Even the inherited Free and Compulsory Education program is tearing apart at the seams because of bad management.

Under Udom Emmanuel’s watch, 36% unemployment rate, mostly of the youth demography, is the national second worst record.

4. Incompetent

Udom Emmanuel is notorious for being impulsive (he claims to be spiritual) and neither has sound policy plans nor good implementation skills. Three and a half years of poor performance and demonstrated cluelessness has shown that he surrounds himself with grossly incompetent and inexperienced core aides.

Consequently, growth and development indices in all socioeconomic sectors have either stagnated or tanked. For example, Udom Emmanuel is known to commission substandard roads that do not meet international standards. He accepts used biomedical equipment donated from the United States and dumps them in Akwa Ibom hospitals and health care centers.

Under Udom Emmanuel’s watch, reputable hospital (Ibom Specialist Hospital) and hotel (Le Meridian Hotel and Golf Resort) management groups have scuttled contracts and angrily left. They were owed money and other entitlements. Result is a comatose tourism sector struggling on life support.

Production in the propaganda Pencil and Toothpick factory is epileptic because AKEES procured a wrong and incomplete set of equipment. The list of bad policies and projects is inexhaustible.

5. Sectional

The “Onna first” doctrine, arrogantly upheld by Udom Emmanuel’s government, is a deliberate corruption of the zoning principle adopted by the Akwa Ibom State PDP. In brazen corruption, it pushes the most powerful and “lucrative” positions and projects to relations, friends and indigenes of Onna Local Government Area.

As long as Udom Emmanuel is governor, it is for Onna to remain the only champion local government area having all economically viable projects at the expense of all other local government areas in Akwa Ibom State.

6. Disconnected

Arrogance, condescension and disconnect are signposts of the Udom Emmanuel government that does not bend to public outcries and outrage.

What Udom Emmanuel lacked in charisma, Godswill Akpabio’s anointing and the peoples’ goodwill substituted. But, all of the foregoing, coupled with Udom induced poverty, have disconnected most Akwa Ibomites from their governor.

7. Discredited

Stinging poverty induced by the Udom Emmanuel government he single most discrediting factor. In urban areas and villages, Akwa Ibomites are becoming more desperate for jobs, food, basic utilities and money. They are fed up with Udom Emmanuel’s government and cannot afford a recycling.

Akwa Ibom State deserves more than a controversial, lying, unaccountable, incompetent and discredited government whose raison d’être is the fleecing of Akwa Ibom people.

Governor Udom Emmanuel has been described as the pride of Akwa Ibom State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) both in the state and national levels and of Nigeria as a whole.

The Chairman of the PDP in Akwa Ibom State and Chairman, Forum of PDP Chairmen in Nigeria, Obong Paul Ekpo made the pronouncement at the official flag-off ceremony of the Sign on for Udom programme, initiated by the Bureau of Political/ Legislative Affairs and Water Resources.

The PDP Chairman, on behalf of his party, commended the leadership of the Bureau for the initiative and for being steadfast and dedicated to the government of the Governor Udom Emmanuel.

Obong Ekpo said his party and the Bureau enjoy a healthy partnership. He maintained that the duo is on the same course, hence that the party strongly identifies with the Bureau in the Sign On programme, which he described as a laudable course.

Obong Paul Ekpo expressed appreciation for the various party men and women who form themselves into various group to support the effort of the Governor and the Party. He however urged them to be equipped with their Permanent Voters’ Cards and be ready to convert their support to victory for the party in due course.

He charged the supporters of Governor Udom Emmanuel and the PDP to take the Sign On back to their various villages, units and wards and to make sure that the Sign on for Udom reverberates at those points.

The host, Special Adviser at the Bureau, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Ekong Sampson described the event as symbolic of the love, respect and principally the support that Governor Udom Emmanuel enjoys in Akwa Ibom State.
Ekong Sampson reiterated that there is a huge current that Governor Udom Emmanuel is doing very well and needs to return for a second term to implement expansive road map that he has our people.

He said the Sign On marks a major intersection in the determination of the people of the State to consolidate the good governance, visionary leadership and innovation brought to bear by Governor Emmanuel.

Sampson said Sign On was one in a mosaic of activities designed to promote good governance, support excellence, deepen bonds and show the whole world that Governor Udom Emmanuel gas earned the love and respect of Akwa Ibom people and indeed Nigerians, sufficient to earn him a second term in office.

He added that the galaxy of eminent Nigerians in Akwa Ibom State stepping forward to Sign On for Governor Emmanuel is indicative of the fact that the people have found in Governor Udom Emmanuel a leader who is committed to true values and have lined up behind him.

Highpoint of the event was the unveiling of the statue of support, a signature board for the actual sign on exercise.
The ceremony which was performed by the Obong Paul Ekpo in company of the Senators Anietie Okon, Effiong Bob, Emmanuel Ibok Essien, the Special Adviser at the Bureau, Barrister Ekong Sampson, State Secretary of the PDP, leaders of frontline socio-political groups and stakeholders in the Akwa Ibom polity that were present at the event, was followed immediately by appending of signature, indicating firm support for Governor Udom Emmanuel.

An Open Letter To A Nigerian-US Fraud Called Clement Ikpatt

21 Jun

From the archive! First Published October 6, 2011

Senior Special Assistant to the Governor

 

I will start this email with a quote from a famous Bob Marley Song in which he said,” Your best friend can be your worst enemy and your worst enemy can be your best friend”. I really do not care where you will classify me at the end of this letter but one thing for sure is that the readers of this letter will know where to put me.

There is also a famous proverb from our area in which the simple translation is that” The observer of the game sees the loopholes better than the players themselves”.The Ghanaians have one too that says,” The dancer thinks he is dancing straight but the person behind him sees the flaws in the dance”.

I would like to call your attention to how I perceive your position.

I will put it to you that there may be no position like yours in other states in Nigeria, I have spoken with a lot of my friends from other African countries and they have not heard of such a position given to one man before. They were amazed. In fact, there may not be a similar position as yours in any other African state.

In speaking with friends from most of the United States, South America, Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia etc. They have not heard of such incursions of the local state Government into the affairs of the citizenry in foreign lands. Some received my revelation with suspicion of the motives of Akwa Ibom State and some felt it was a novel idea.

However, I feel you are in a position to make history(I would if I were you). On the other hand, you could end up failing miserably and this position could be a mockery. Why do I say so?

Firstly, it is what we may call “a position in experimentation“. It never existed before and may not have had a prepared job description. It is up to the first occupier of this office to define what the office duties will and could evolve into in the future. In such a position the first occupier can fail miserably if he or she does not identify the pros and cons and resources and lack of resources thereof at their disposal. Also, his/her mindset could defeat the purpose of the office in question.

So let us examine the resources at your disposal that I already feel that you are underutilizing. You are in charge of Diaspora worldwide, you have no counterpart created for the other continents. This means like in the United States you should be in talking terms with every single Son and Daughter of Akwa Ibom State in the 51 states of the USA. These should be your connections from Engineers in Intel to Engineers in Apple to Engineers in Microsoft(I have met them before) to Plastic Surgeons to Professors in Universities to Medical Doctors to Nurses to Teachers to Business People to Pilots and the amount of people you can connect with in this regards is just mindboggling. In every field, every person (if approached the right way) will not hide from you the question of how their industries work and how their fields are enhanced to create maximized output. In every state, you should have teams breaking into every sphere of influence in every state including the much coveted private sector, teams that are helping you connect with every Governor in the 51 states that you should link up to his Excellency the Governor. Teams that are “secretly penetrating to learn how we can make the system work for our state. Please do not forget that the Governors here are accessible by the common man and that all you need is a call to get the protocol needed to get Akwa Ibom State connected as a “Sister State’ to all these states and there are trade agreements and programs to that effect. There should have been a team already created to do a “feeling” of Wall Street and the investors there and possible trade agreements that would change the landscape forever.

Do not deceive yourself, as a rule, if our industrialization program does not involve trade we will watch the industries die a natural death all over again. That is why trade agreements is big news in this part of the world

Chinese volunteer scientist in the same vein took nuclear weaponry secrets back to China from the USA and those in Wall street took the secrets of the trade to China and now they own 85% of the loan notes of the USA.

I know you will say that you have committees that have been created,I do not need to explain to you the good committees have done Nigeria for the past 51 years. It is one of those things we inherited that waste a lot of time and nothing gets done.

In other words, you should be helping in solving the investor problem that we are talking about with the vast resources you have which are; Akwa Ibom State indigene in every part of the World !!!!!

However when I read the tone in which you write in this forum you are still just someone that relays information from Akwa Ibom State to the internet or you step in to “crack the whip “at whosoever you feel does not stay in line.

Respectfully, I just wonder if you have any idea of what you could do with the resources at your disposal. It would be such a pity if you think that the direct interpretation of your position is that of “Disciplinarian For Diaspora”. That would be such a bastardization of your office. It would be such a sad mistake. Someone who is always out to just show how stupid someone’s statements is when you do not agree with them. Nobody in the Diaspora deserves that kind of treatment, it is totally unacceptable. Even the Oyinbo and all their racism do not address us that way. You may receive a pat on the back from people back home like,”You really put them in their place” but it will be such a failure of the office when you look at the kind of resources at your disposal. I doubt if you even know your people residing in Nevada or Idaho or Wyoming or Nebraska.

If I asked you today about your people in Iceland, got any idea ???????

Sometimes in companies, I have worked for , when a new CEO is brought in, he sends an email asking everybody to write a short email to give him an idea of who you are.I thought it was a joke until you come across him at the Meet-and-Greet ceremony and to your surprise, as you begin to reintroduce yourself he cuts you short and tells you more about yourself. It makes you feel a certain level of loyalty when the guy at the top recognizes you.

I would have thought that immediately your appointment is confirmed that you would have sent a mass communique in which you would love people to write in and share their lives and experiences with you. Not to act like the people back home that when given political appointment they act as “gods” in which we see you from a distance and kneel. In the process of reaching out you would lose nothing and you would with the right attitude receive emails from as far as Australia etc. Reaching out with Linked In, Facebook, Twitter, My Space and harnessing the power of the Diaspora. A true Godfather.

I would define a Godfather as a man that is such a statesman that people scramble to help him for nothing. Not just his crowd (AIDN) but people from every walk of life. People scramble to associate with him because he represents the ideals that they long for.Associating with the person brings an excitement like no other, it’s like associating with the future and not a refined form of the status quo.

Let’s get one thing right, I am not a big fan of his Excellency Chief (Dr) Godswill Akpabio. I do believe he was destined to be Governor and that is why he is there and that is all that is needed for him to have my help if he asks for it. On the other hand those who wish him to fail also are wishing eight failed years for Akwa Abasi Ibom State and that is just unthinkable. Hence we must pray for him to succeed. However, I have seen (Like in my subsequent emails) that subordinates can make the Chief Executive look really bad. Sometimes the Chief Executive may not even know what is being done on his behalf on the streets, press, internet etc. It is up to people like you to create policy that will make a lot of people to soften towards his Excellency and join hands and work to make Akwa Abasi Ibom State a wonder.

Either you figure this out or you lash out on me cuz you really do not know how to go about it. Everything should not be the guys in Uyo trying to tell us how to go about bringing the investors that are living next door to us. Would they die if they rather got info on how to go about it from you? Info that you got from the Diaspora?

You want world-class hospitals, Diasporians work in the world class hospitals over here but we should shut up and have someone in Uyo tell us how to implement world class medical healthcare. Our children are graduating from Colleges of Engineering but we should not be seen as trying to force the system to “use them” so we should shut up and because the guys back home are clueless they call in a foreign company and after Quid Pro Quo execute the contract and then the glory goes to the State Government. So if you really do not want to use the Diaspora until they are “submissive” to you. Whats the use ?

I can also buy your argument that Diasporans duped the Government and did this or that (We can count so much that Diasporans have done that we should cease giving them any form of respect)

Let’s call a spade a spade,I would expect you as the bridge, to also brief back home on how to deal with Diaspora without hushing them down and making them feel “stupid”. It is a waste of time. It is a serious breakdown of communication of an administration with his people when things come down to bets.

A common member of the citizenry spreads rumors about the State Government. It should not entail the system being so pressed that they must fly into the territory to prove a point against a common citizen. The fight against opposition should not be personal;they are still citizens of Akwa Ibom State !!!! I will put it onto you that your present rhetoric and schematics changes nothing in the relationship between Diasporians and back home.

A leader must have a certain level of respect for the subjects he leads and he should give them the benefit of the doubt.Not every move is a publicity stunt against people back home(Baby arm amputated) or a smear campaign or an attempt to overthrow state government and every statement is either “clueless” or “stupid” or people are “disgruntled” or involved in “spinmeistering”. Sometimes with the kind of words that have been used on Diaspora, you wonder if they really want to work with them. Sometimes I wonder if it would have been better off if Diaspora had just minded their own business and left home alone.

With all due respect you have a lot of work to do and right now I do not see the difference between you and Ata Ikkideh. Why? Ata is already doing a good job of spreading info on the internet be it Real or False and stepping into frays. In fact, he claims he is the Info Consultant for the forum.

So please correct me if I am wrong but it will be nice if you could enlighten us on your job as the point man of the Diaspora. The forums are open for you to wing it in that regard.

Finally, my point is that I wish you success in this position but I hope you do not diminish the true power that you could harness as an elder statesman in the position you hold.

Goodluck

#PictureNews: Six Children Rescued From Human Traffickers’ Den, 7 Missing

24 May

No fewer than six children from different local government areas of Akwa Ibom State were yesterday rescued from what is believed to be the hideouts of human traffickers in Eket by volunteers of the Child’s Right and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN).6 Children Rescued From Human Traffickers' Den, 7 Missing

The Manager of the organization, Pastor Hezekiah Akpasi stated this while fielding questions from newsmen in his office at the CRARN Children Center, Eket.

Pastor Akpasi said the children who were all stigmatized in various churches and prayer houses were 13 in number and seven were nowhere to be found as they were believed to have been whisked away by the human trafficking syndicates who lured them into their enclave and took them away before the organization got the tip.

6 Children Rescued From Human Traffickers' Den, 7 Missing“We believe from what the children said that all of them were denounced as witches and wizards by some of these hungry and desperate pastors and prophets. As we got the information we went there immediately. The children even said seven of their colleagues were already missing after some men came and told them that they have a place to take for work and go to school ” said Akpasi.

He added that they got a hint from a child who was reunited with her parents six months ago but pushed out of the house again with the warning that she should not return back to CRARN, otherwise she’d be killed by the father. So she opted to go back to the streets where she was rescued during an anti-witch branding campaign rally organized by the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Women and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and related matters (NAPTIP).

One of the rescued children, Emmanuel Akpan Uno said he trekked from Oron to Eket (about 50 KM) after two of his friends on the streets were badly beaten and tortured by their brothers to a state of coma before dragged into the bush and he became afraid that he would be the next victim so ran away.

6 Children Rescued From Human Traffickers' Den, 7 MissingFor a five year old Wisdom Friday Ndohose from Enen Ekpene, Afaha-Eket, the story is different. Friday told newsmen that he lost touch with his mother after their pastor told him that he was responsible for the accident his mother had. His mother then took from Uyo to Eket and returned him to his father. Though his father welcomed him, such welcome was merely short-lived as his stepmother and father later turned him into punching bag and usually tied him to a pillar in the backyard, burnt a nylon bag and allowed it to be dropping on him.

He said even after he ran out of the house, his father normally comes to the streets where he stays with friends and beats the hell out of him saying that until he releases his wife’s womb from the witch coven, he would never know peace.

6 Children Rescued From Human Traffickers' Den, 7 MissingThe CRARN Children Centre in Eket was established in 2003 by a Nigerian, Sam Itauma when he rescued four children who were being beaten by a dozen of adults in his community with the fanciful claim that they were holding down the sales and progress of the market in his community. Since then, the centre has continued to rescued pariah children and street urchins from the streets and woods.
