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

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!

An Open Letter by a youth activist to #ScamArtist #AtaIkiddeh, Former SA on Project Monitoring to then Governor Of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Obot Akpabio.

6 Oct

 

Dear Sir,

It is after keen observation of your recent activities on social media particularly Facebook, against the government of Udom Emmanuel, that I, have decided to write you this letter. May I state here, that my letter to you, is in no way politically motivated neither is it sponsored by any political group, individual or party.Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses and text

I have followed you closely from 2013 when I first saw you in the Little Play House of Theatre Art, University of Uyo. Mr. Sunday Umanah introduced you to us as the S.A on Project Monitoring to the Governor, during rehearsals to stage the novel “He Dared: the story of Okuku Udo Akpabio”. Since then, I fell in love with your intellectual capacity and developed an interest in knowing you more.

The first negative impression you left in my mind, came just a few weeks after I started following you on Facebook. If you can remember some years back in one of your posts, during your boss’ Godswill Akpabio’s administration as the governor of Akwa Ibom State, in which you were exalting Akpabio to high heavens, I had commented and said thus “Mr. Ata Ikkideh Sir, you celebrate evil simply because evil puts food on your table”. Today, your recent activities against the government of Udom Emmanuel, has reminded me of the truism of those words I wrote some years back.

I have read many of your articles against the governor and the ones for the MD of NDDC but your videos yesterday, gave me a reason to write to you and sorry I have adopted the open medium.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, hat, eyeglasses and beard

Sir, I must say that I felt truly disappointed after I watched your two videos yesterday and what I saw, was a direct opposite of your great father Prof. Ikkideh who is in the great beyond. Your father left behind great legacies which you can, but have refused to beat those legacies. It pains me, that a man like you whom I looked up to, has so given me reasons not to anymore.

When I showed your videos to a wise old man who properly knew your father, he apostrophically had this to say, “Your father, Prof. Ikiddeh, the first Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Uyo, a ranking academic who wrote the introduction to one of Ngugi Wa Thiongo’s literature, WEEP NOT CHILD, was a great man who is probably weeping over you in the great beyond. The great man, your father, laboured so hard to give you the very best in life, ensuring that you went to the best of schools and traveled the whole world but all you’ve got to show for such investments are your selfish activities on Facebook”.

What have you achieved as a lawyer Mr. Barrister Sir? Why have you not come back to Nigeria to practice, at least, to use your wealth of experiences to help us out of some of contending judicial issues? You served as SA on Project Monitoring in the most corrupt government Akwa Ibom has ever witnessed, the government of Godswill Akpabio. With all the atrocities, that that government committed, you never for once, pointed out anything bad in that government even till today.

Why Sir, have you allowed gain, to be your driving force? Why can’t you be selfless even as other activists or patriots are truly selfless in the pursuit for a better nation? You started the Nigerian Ethnical Society (NES), an organization I thought was meant indeed, for men with ideals though it suddenly went into extinction. When I heard of NES, I had perceived you to be, a man with integrity but your continuous praises for Godswill Akpabio, a man I have always believed to be fundamentally corrupt gave me double thoughts about you.Image may contain: 1 person, standing and beard

I know, your celebration of Senator Godswill Akpabio no matter what he does, is born out of the fact that Akpabio was your classmate and that he accommodated you in his government. Your constant and unending criticisms of Udom Emmanuel’s administration is born not only from the fact that, Udom Emmanuel has not accommodated you in his government but also, from the fact that, your proposal, said to have been perked to over 50million naira to Gov. Udom Emmanuel was rejected and not approved.

So, I ask, should activism be driven by greed and selfishness? Should we get angry over the policies of government because that government, has not satisfied our own personal interests and not the collective interests of the people? Where these are ‘yes’, then I am afraid, this is no longer activism, it is an outcry to gain relevance. Sir, I must submit without fear or favour, that you have deliberately failed to live up the true meanings of the word “patriot”, which you claimed to be in one of your videos.

What I saw in those videos was hypocrisy inspired by an attempt to win Nsima Ekere’s attention while also pleasing your boss and classmate, Sen. Godswill Akpabio to book a place for you in case Nsima becomes Governor. Or could I believe it was a paid video? If yes, regrettably shameful from a man of your own social and political standard. There was no element of love for the Akwa Ibom State and Akwa Ibomites.

Sir, I challenge you today, to put yourself in the dock, and allow your conscience to sit in judgement over you as the following questions echo through your hears,

Am I agitating against Governor Udom Emmanuel because I care about the state or because I care about my house?

Am I castigating Udom Emmanuel because of my love for the people or because of my love for my family?

Am I standing up for the suffering and hungry people of the state or for my pocket to be salted?

Am I agitating for Nsima Ekere to be Governor because I want him to bring about some change or because I want him to bring me some “change’?

Allow your conscience to pronounce the judgement and see, if it will acquit you and set you free.

I must apologize for my tone in this letter because I couldn’t know any diplomatic way of expressing my anger after I watched your videos and I do not subscribe to the idea of political correctness. For those who would perceive me as being insulting, sorry, editan akpaniko, nkereke ke ado usung enyin ooo.

Your Very Little Friend in the Struggle

NOW THAT SCAM-ARTIST ATA IKIDDEH HAS JOINED NDDC MEDIA TEAM…

5 Jul

 

Ata Ikiddeh 2

“Why are you dissipating too much energy on Ata Ikiddeh, he has never been a serious person. He was my classmate at the defunct School of Arts and Science, Uyo. While in at UNICAL too, he was course mate of former Governor Godswill Akpabio. He used to dance breakdance at UNICAL. It was on this strength that he won an award then called Mr. UNICAL.”

That was a message, crispy and clear from a concerned Akwa Ibom son who felt Ata Ikiddeh’s noise was not worth the attention. But then anyone who ignores Ata, does so at his own peril. This is moreso when so many amiable indigenes of the state, like former screen delight,Regina AskiaWilliams who reside outside the country, are yielding towards the emotions raised by his ilk. I remember the build up to the 2011 elections, the same desperation and blackmail were employed by the same guy and the next thing was his strong persistent clamour to take over the media team of the then Governor, His Excellency Godswill Akpabio. It got to a point that Mr Ikiddeh would sent message after another to the Governor on how the Commissioner for Information Aniekan Umanah failed to properly inform the people, and how he waded in to redeem the image of the governor on the social and global media. His pestering was uncontrollable and anyone could just imagine the volume of pressure he mounted on the former Governor, who characteristically refused to succumb to blackmail. Most of the text messages undermining the Aniekan Umanah-led information team were usually forwarded to the subject of the blackmail.Ata Ikiddeh scam artist

For close to two years, between 2009 to 2011, Mr. Ikiddeh was usually seen with a small camcorder, recording projects and posting them on his social media platforms. Perhaps it is instructive to note that in 2009, Ata first came to Uyo with a group of about six diasporans on a fact finding tour, and despite being shown round the entire projects locations in one week, he saw it as a Vista for endless all expense paid trips. Most times even when he got the clips from the information team, he won’t hesitate to forward a message to the former Governor as his personal efforts at salvaging the battered image of the governor. Almost a month would not pass without Ikiddeh arriving the state with his small camera, and the usual text messages to get support. That is the story of a tall bespectacled dude at the tarmac of the newly commissioned airport, with his brown Elizabethan checkered blazers. Although unsolicited, the State government made it a point of duty to always find him handouts. Of course I was the Special Assistant to the Commissioner and had a fair knowledge of most of Ata’s activities. On one occasion, he wrote a passionate letter about his rent expiring in his London apartment, and his children being unable to attend school.

It is obviously not a surprise that he found his way to the doorstep of very humble and listening Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rd.Hon. Barr. Onofiok Luke. It takes a broad mind to imagine the pestering and harassment he may have meted on the peaceable number one state lawmaker. This aspect of Ata dates back to 2010 during the ‘Child Witch Saga’ that compelled the state government to intervene and rescue the children from the CRARN home in Eket. It was a very emotional moment, seeing the terrible condition of young children suffering from the ignorance of their parents. My involvement in the evacuation enabled Ata to have access to the process. He said he would like to join and we brought him along. When I received a call from the then Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare Mrs. Eunice Thomas, the following morning, I was shocked to hear that the same Ata in his usual nature had forwarded a text to the Governor on how he narrowly escaped dead while trying to rescue the children from their ‘captors’. He had painted a picture of a war scenario where he was the Rambo that helped wade of the savages that came out with machetes. The commissioner was upset with me, she said it was unfair for the Ata Ikiddeh to go a-lying to the governor. In the true sense of it, there was never a resistance from the center when the government team arrived and it took three trips to evacuate the inmates to the Divine Children’s home, built initially as the security village in Uyo.

Like I had said somewhere else previously, Ata is a lawyer by training, and his mates in the Nigeria Law School include the likes of Senator Godswill Akpabio, Senator Liyel Imoke, Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Anyim, Senator Grace Bent, former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Chibudum Nwuche, among other notable Nigerians. He had no history of involvement in media services in any known media establishment or department, neither could he prove he had consulted for any reputable agency or government. These were obviously addendums to his penchant for blackmail, which probably accounted for his appointment as one of the numerous Special Assistants on Projects Monitoring, to the then governor in 2011, as against his crave for the soul of the information machinery. If ever someone exists who would have entrusted Ata Ikiddeh with the job of managing his image, it ought to have been His Excellency Godswill Akpabio. But he got a job of project inspection for all his troubles. It was like, let us find Ata something to do, and save ourselves the troubles of his harassments.

I remember the day I called Ata when he started rolling these spiteful messages on the social media against the Governor, I was in my office and when he received my call, I explained to him that it was not fair for him, a beneficiary of the system to attempt pulling the ladder down. He started explaining to me that he has done his best to get the Commissioner to involve him and that he even got recommendation from the Speaker of the State House of Assembly. After submitting his proposal, the commissioner has failed to send for him, and has not also been picking his calls. It was an absurd thing to hear, that someone could tell me he has resorted to media attacks on the governor because his proposal didn’t meet favourable consideration.

Most people have gone on the social media space, urging the state government to respond to the calculated jaundiced smear campaigns by Ata Ikiddeh and brothers. Like I said, genuine and reasonable people usually ask questions before to conclusions except where there is a malicious intent, like in this case.
Everyone who cares to know, has seen through the various communication media that the Governor of Akwa Ibom state His Excellency Mr Udom Emmanuel has clearly made a bold expression on the health sector of the state. Governor Emmanuel clearly stated that the medical equipment being brought into Akwa Ibom are bought first hand from the manufacturers in the United States of America, and are being shipped in 100 containers to Nigeria. The administration, he echoed resisted the temptation of purchasing equipment from several third world countries to be guaranteed of their quality and durability. So far more than 25 of those containers have been received and deployed for use. The hospitals in Etinan and Ikono have been well equipped and furnished and were commissioned recently by the Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and the Governor respectively. These much information are in the public domain, produced and circulated by Commissioner Charles Udoh. Ata has access to these. Because his interest is in his personal gains than these information, he overlooks them and goes for the jugular of the Commissioner for refusing him his outrageous media consultancy.

Other hospitals like Oron, Okobo, Eket, Oruk Anam, Uruan among others are undergoing renovations and re-equipping. If Ata and his cohorts were sincere, instead of writing and publishing on rag tag sheets, they would review government projects and come down to inspect and access before going to attack the commissioner for information and the media team. I remember the day I personally called him to advise against towing the path of self-destruction, he took it in bad faith, went on the media alleging blackmail.
In summary, it is well to note that Ata disturbed the Speaker of the House of Assembly and out of compassion, the speaker opted to introduce Ata to Charles Udoh. Note, Barr Luke possibly paid his transport fares and lodged him in a hotel, and for Ata, this means that his proposal ought to be accepted at all cost. If Ata Ikiddeh wanted information on the achievements of government, he got it, more than enough. Others get it when they seek. Currently, the state government runs a whole lot of media programmes on the achievements of the governor. Discover Akwa Ibom, Update Akwa Ibom and Akwa Ibom Rising are documentaries that run both on local electronic media and cable TV. There is a feedback mechanism for citizens to access the government spokesman on SMS,whatsapp messages, social media platforms and even the state website. Today, we have a man who benefitted consistently from government for over six years, coming out with a threatening proposal including a clause for hotel bills, flight tickets and other expenses. Didn’t he owned a house in Uyo while working for the state government a year earlier? That is story for another day.

By his own admission, Mr Ata Ikiddeh has joined the media team of Mr. Nsima Ekere, the Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission, who is neck deep in the 2019 governorship race against the incumbent governor. He said Charles Udoh refused to give him attention, Mr Ekere picked his call and accepted his offer. Ata has repeatedly expressed his prowess as a media expert, without whom nothing can work in a media team. Methinks he would have set out for work immediately to gain acceptance from the already existent team members of the Nsima Ekere crew who may see him as a gold digger. Don’t get me wrong, no one is against his being accommodated in Mr Nsima Ekere’s media team, but he should promote Ekere and NDDC and stop knocking Governor Emmanuel and his media team. He is expected to bring that media ingenuity and show the world those achievements of NDDC in Akwa Ibom that every other media hireling has unfortunately failed to showcase in the past three years. He should exhibit his media skills at his new duty post and stop crying over the job he couldn’t get at the Hilltop mansion.

CON-ARTIST ATA IKIDDEH, A LAWYER OR A JOURNALIST?

20 Jun

 

#ConArtist Ata Ikidde

#ConArtist Ata Ikiddeh

#ConArtist Ata Ikiddeh
I stumbled on the social media, across a post by Barr. Ata Ikiddeh Ikiddeh, former Special Assistant to the former Governor on Projects Monitoring. A lot of people may not know that Ata is a lawyer by training, and his mates in the Nigeria Law School include the likes of Senator Godswill Akpabio, Senator Liyel Imoke, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Anyim, Senator Grace Bent, former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Chibudum Nwuche, among other notable Nigerians.
It is unfortunate that someone with such a rich background could be the same person with an irreparable penchant and desperation for media consultancy. I dare to ask, was Ata a media journalism communication at the Nigerian Law School? If not, why is he not practicing what he was called to bar for?


So what are all these allegations and counter-accusations of media consultancy and desperation to be engaged in the Governor’s media team?


I am not against someone being engaged to work in government, neither am I saying he is wrong to propose to work and get paid by government as a media consultant, but one thing I am strongly against, is the idea of displaying such arrogance and desperate antics, “if I am not engaged, then the media team is not working.” If my boss, the governor engages Ata to work in his media team, I will work with him, but if that is not done, he should quietly go on with his life at his present port of call.


Ata could have quietly gone to Mr. Nsima Ekere and do whatever he is paid to do, but using the same breath to run down the Governor or his team, means he wants me to tell him enough is enough.


A professional media guy will not go on the social media to attack a media team, simply because his offer was not accepted, or approved. If it was in his original profession, will Ikiddeh write against a legal team simply because he was not allowed to join as a defense or prosecution counsel? I have written these lines to encourage our people to learn to get a life outside pulling others down. 


I believe if Ata was as good a media man as he makes people believe, His Excellency former Governor Akpabio, his former classmate, would have wasted no time in appointing him as a media aide. However, after much pressure, he was sent to the project team of the government. It is not a very good lesson in this #Dakkada period for one to dissipate his energy over his failure to be engaged or accepted immediately into a team.

A’Ibom Info Commissioner-Aniekan Umanah, Akpabio’s Diaspora Spin-doctors in Massive Financial Scam.

The botched Germany Expo organized by Akpabio’s men in America and Europe, is causing ripples in the state. Following an expose by a US based Akwa Ibomite, Uwem Sam, the state is abuzz with what a commentator called the scam of the new year.

It has been alleged that people who acted under the impression that the Akwa Ibom state government was going to bankroll the event are now counting their losses as money allegedly released to cover their expenses has vamoose into deep pockets in Uyo. It was further alleged that N10m meant to offset out of pocket expenses never got to those who spent their money. In a response, Aniekan Umana the commissioner fingered in the scam said that the said N10m has not been released, but that £10,000 had been sent to one Uduak Ukpe in London to cover printing expenses. But another source put the money spent on printing at a little over £4,000, adding that printing was not done in London as claimed but in Slovenia. We are still working on this interesting scam as it unfolds.

Gov Godswill Akpabio’s Secret Plot To Shut Down Diaspora Voice Fails

9 Nov

Written by Asuquo Okon
Good people, a month ago, Gov Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state, called on his puppet State House of Assembly to enact a law on an outright ban on print media that publish news or features that are critical of his government. As I write now the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly (AKHA) is tirelessly working on a legislation that will ensure that no media in his state publish information that is critical of his dictatorial government is given a space.

Though as counter-productive as this act is and inimical to the newly established Freedom of Information Bill of Nigeria, yet the AKHA which seems to be made up of ‘yes’ men and in the wallet of Akpabio could not have a second thought over their ill and conspicuously denigrating action.

Sadly, though, journalists or columnists who write to criticize the governor are either kidnapped or assassinated. Politicians and ordinary citizens, who do their private business and whom the governor feels their action may not help in whitewashing his image, face similar fate. In view of the dire consequences facing such writers, they have either kept silent or left Akwa Ibom State to hide with their family; because leaving their families behind means an ample opportunity for the governor’s brewed cult gang to mow them down in cold blood.

Few hours ago, I found in my inbox a letter of petition by one Ata Ikiddeh sent to Yahoo praying her to terminate the activities of the Diaspora Ibom Forum and Ibibio Nation discussion groups; the only online groups that give the Akwa Ibom people and their friends the alternative and opportunity to make public their views. Ata Ikiddeh as we all know was based in Romford, and Essex, United Kingdom, but ran to Akwa Ibom since last year when the UK police were ferociously looking for him in connection with his Non-Profit organisation, Global-Media-Europe-Int and with link to child trafficking. Since then he has not set foot in the UK.

The petition was written on Tuesday, 26 October 2010, 11:33, about a year ago, and however got support of one Clement Ikpatt who wasrecently appointed a Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Affair by Akpabio’s administration. Ikpatt, a deserted Nigerian Police officer who left the country twenty years ago and took refuge in the US has equally not set foot in his father land, Nigeria since then. And yet is used as one of the chief propagandists and a coordinator for Governor Akpabio’s burgeoning money laundry empire in the United State of America, under the aegis of Akwa Ibom Diaspora Network (AIDN).

We are told AIDN has been under investigation of money laundry and terror-related activities by the US government.

A certain Uduak Ukpeh, based in London and a nurse by profession who operates a drug company, Virgin Investments Nigeria Limited, for governor Akpabio in East London and Nigeria, also signed one of the petitions together with Dr Ezekiel Umo Ette who heads part of drugs conglomerate in Atlanta, Georgia.

The petition, written one year ago, only came to the fore when Ata Ikiddeh wanted to forward it to one of governor Akpabio’s hatchet men to show the Pay Master that they are executing his plans to the letter, and therefore need more logistics to accomplished it, but as fate will have it, he mistakenly forwarded it to Ibom Global Forum discussion group. A Diasdpora group sponsored by Akpabio himself to counter any claims or publication coming from the very discussion groups that Akpabio wants Yahoo to exterminate so that his reign of terror and unmitigated mayhem will continue unabated and indeed unchallenged.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED:Ata Ikiddeh wrote the governor On Thu, 28/10/10,to intimate him of his job well-done! See part of the letter: “ Your Excellency,Yahoo sent me a mail this afternoon informing me they had taken “appropriate action”, but would not disclose what action they have taken. I went through their Terms of Service (TOS), it only sets out violations. I have been monitoring Ibom Forum the whole day. I have sent 3 different complaints-this particular complaint focused on the threat to your son. (KMM118129344V62633L0KM) This is the file name and complaint serial number which will always be used.Clement says yahoo will close Ibom Forum down. Thanks Ata”

This might have been the reason for Ata undisclosed appointment as one of the Pas. When Ata said: “I have been monitoring Ibom Forum thewhole day.” when he is not a member of the forum that means he has a ghost name in it as they have ghost names in the Akwa Ibom State payroll which in spite of the call for investigation, no action has been taken.

Announcing the discovery of the petition, Dr Tom Mbeke-Ekanem, the President Ibom People’s Congress (IPC) said: Ladies and gentlemen, I am sharing with you below the activities of the evil forces that have since taken over our state. We knew long before now the havoc wrought on ourstate by the present administration and its agents that span across the globe. We are all aware of the uncountable deaths and untold hardship Akwa Ibom people have been made to face for no false of theirs but simply because they have yearned for a true and credible democracy…

He continued: Today, the government of Akwa Ibom State and her paid agents in and outside Nigeria plan to carry out the same repressive tactics they have used in Akwa Ibom State for nearly five years now out here in United States. It is good that they have now invited FBI, Homeland Security, the State Department, CIA, and SSS in Nigeria into this deplorable state of affairs in Akwa Ibom.And I strongly hope the activities of this evil administration will be thoroughly investigated by both the FBI and CIA.Thank goodness that United States is a country of law. Freedom of the press is guaranteed in the Constitution…..

Nonetheless, it is hard to believe that with all the crimes against humanity and the glaring human right violation that are being committed by governor Akpabio, many Nigerians seem to be interested in the oil money that flows in to Akwa Ibom State and how they can organised an event then called Akpabio to come and get an award in order to carve a niche of the Akwa Ibom oil money.

They seem not ask question about the people who are being kidnapped or sent to their early graves by the governor’s killer squad who are licensed to kill. They are not interested in the number of children who have been orphaned not by HIV/AIDS but by men paid with the only official dutyto kill perceived adversaries of the governor.

The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan cannot continue to pretend that he and his government are not aware of the mounting atrocities of Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State against his own people. He cannot continue to turn a blind eye while one of his governors is having a field day losing count of the number of people being sent to their early graves.Mr President, A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE!

Recently the US warned its citizens not to travel to a few states in Nigeria’s Niger Delta and a few states in the east. Akwa Ibom State was the first to mention. If all is well why must the US issue this warning? President Jonathan will not go to heaven to look for an answer to this question. Will he?

Some hours ago, I was jolted out of my revelry which did not spell well for my country in antithesis of the way which I am praying for.When I opened my email, the headline that was very conspicuous read:PLOT AGAINST IBOM FORUM & AKWA IBOM INDIGENES IN DIASPORA.When I finished reading the plot and failed intrigues of Akpabio, I rinsed my mouth and got some drinking water. I remembered I was in Uyo whichmight have prompted me to get a half sleep. Since I always sneaked in and out of Uyo, I prepared for my flight ticked online via Calabarairport instead of Uyo – a usual case of mine. Then I sat in front of my laptop and scribbled a few lines of encouragement to all thefreedom fighters in my state below:

Dear All, Akpabio boys asking Yahoo to shut down the Voice of the masses!No shaking whatsoever. It was a ploy to get plump jobs!May be time has come for Godswill Obot Akpabio, the Kidnapper-in-Chief in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, with his notorious group of assassins andabductors to be fully disgraced. This is the time to put on your girdle and amour of the Lord to fight the devil; I mean the real DEVIL and get him hook, line and sinker. God is alive. I mean the time to bring out fact to bear. Time to put up petitions in various human rights websites and blogs. It is a deliberate ploy by the anarchists to carry out their 666 plans before the time of rapture comes.It is a way to blind-fold and shut people’s mouth then continue to terrorize, intimidate, coerce and kill innocent people with impunity

Akpabio, the man whose head has gone haywire and mouth blood-tasty, just as it happened to Idi Amin Dada of Uganda, Adolf Hitler, Sanni Abacha, and most recently, Muammar Ghadafi of Libya and presently Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. A despot who once tested blood cannot be normal; he will continue to get more and more ferocious as he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Godswill Akpabio, has gone beyond this. To say that Akpabio needs a rehabilitation centre or remand home, is making an understatement. Calling Yahoo to sanction all the groups that criticize his killing of innocent people in Akwa Ibom State and beyond through his killer squad in street cloths and uniform men, and mere perceived enemies, is more than meet the eyes. No other time has been so ripe than this. Never fail to brace up for the challenge. It must be fired from all cylinders to bring down the monster. You must do this to ‘send the dragon to where it belongs’. Remember Raskimono?These guys know that all these their tricks are a failure. It will not work at all. Since 2010 yahoo is yet shoot its bullet to these forums that protect human lives from the dragon mouth of Godswill Akpabio. These forums have helped saved a lot of lives; and so shall it continue to do. Can you see? This is the very forum that some of them come with fake and phony names to spread the falsehood of their pay master, arsonist and murderer.I have been saying that they make this to deceive and lure Akpabio into giving them a job; and have succeeded in getting it by all means. So what else? Yahoo is a constituent of people who use their brains to think. And I can assure you, they are looking at this issue, they know that Akpabio is killer. Yahoo should Google the name of Godswill Akpabio, it will see how psychopathic sycophants have done their best in praising him, but it will also see massive abuse of office, violation of human right, and degrading treatments that Akpabio has meted out to many unarmed civilians, including children.It will see hundreds of lives that Akpabio has wasted in a land that there is no civil war or civil unrest; except that Akpabio has turned the once most peaceful state of the Niger Delta to a mind field and death traps.

Since they are calling on US FBI to join the Nigeria SSS for investigation, this should be a welcomed development. This is the time for justice to begin fish out Akpabio and his gang of terrorists. Ever wonder why more than five thousand Akwa Ibom people have fled their state to different states and countries seeking refuge here and there?Those who don’t have the ability flee, remain and get killed.

Keep on the good fight for your people.
