Following last week’s open reconciliation between Mr Umana Okon Umana and Sen. Effiong Bob in Nsit Ubium, Governor Godswill Akpabio has offered Bob the sum of 5billion Naira to support Udom Emmanuel for the 2015 governorship. This paper gathered on good authority that Senator Bob was invited to the Akwa Ibom lodge in Abuja to be offered the money by Akpabio who became frantic after the unexpected reconciliation by the Nsit Ubium-born politicians.

Akpabio who political pundits say has been feeling safe with the frosty relationship between Umana and Bob is said to have become angry and felt frustrated when he received the news that the two men have reconciled.
Umana and Bob have been at loggerheads for over three years. The ill-feeling between the two political gladiators in Nsit Ubium was further heightened following Umana Umana’s alleged role in thwarting the third term ambition of Senator Bob. Umana is said to have favoured the candidature of Senator Ita Enang for the Senatorial District. The two men have since not seen eye-to-eye.
It would be recalled that during his second constituency briefing last week Friday, the member representing Nsirt Ubium State Constituency, Barrister Onofiok Luke, had called for peace between the two men.
Apparently embittered by the long-lasting hostilities between both men, Barr Luke, just before commencing the briefing, entreated Umana and Bob to make peace. The occasion turned dramatic when the lawmaker requested Bishop Isaiah Isong to seat between both men and mediate them to make peace. The eventual making of peace was greeted with wild excitement by the various political groups, youths and women who were present at the briefing.
Umana is one of those who have indicated interest in running for the governorship seat of the state in 2015. His ambition was clearly rejected by Akpabio. Umana was sacked by the governor in July this year after his six years sojourn in the Akpabio government as Secretary to State Government. Following the falling out, Akpabio had drawn Senator Bob close in order to create a formidable home-base opposition to Umana in Nsit Ubium and in Uyo Senatorial District.
The governor who has since become rattled by the reconciliation, called Senator Bob to offer him the 5billion Naira in order to keep him in check against 2015, and to be sure he remains one of his handy allies to fight Umana and all that will oppose Udom Emmanuel.
Our source who works in the Akwa Ibom lodge in Abuja disclosed in strict confidence: “I can tell you on good authority that Governor Akpabio has offered to ‘buy’ the Senator with the sum of 5billion Naira to support Udom Emmanuel come 2015. He is panicked by the reconciliatory move and has vowed to see to it that peace does not exist between both men.”
The governor is also said to be very bitter with Hon. Onofiok Luke for causing peace to return between both men. Luke had worked as personal assistant to the governor before proceeding to represent Nsit Ubium in the State House of Assembly.
It was gathered that in the bid to cause disaffection between the men, Akpabio attempted to blackmail Hon. Luke to Senator Bob, telling the Senator that Onofiok Luke will never support him. He went further to curse Onofiok Luke and said God will punish him for brokering the peace.
“If he (Onofiok Luke) hasn’t been previously loyal, is it today that he will be loyal? He will remain loyal to Umana Umana”, Akpabio is quoted to have told Senator Bob.
It was learnt just before going to press that Akpabio, after getting winds that his conversation and the deal he struck with Senator Bob had leaked, hired men of the State Security Service (SSS) to immediately overhaul his Abuja lodge in search of bugging devices. He accused his aides of bugging his office. The governor has felt very unsafe in the lodge and has vowed never to sleep there again.
“He is suspecting us. He says the place (lodge) has been bugged by his aides”, our source hinted yesterday.
It was gathered that after the 5billion Naira deal had been struck, the governor is said to have gone ahead to boast to some of his closest allies that he has bought Effiong Bob over with 5billion Naira. He assured them that with the 5billion Naira offer, the doors have been eternally shut against true reconciliation between Bob and Umana.
But when the information of the deal broke among top government functionaries in the state, Senator Bob, was visibly angry and embarrassed. Our impeccable source also hinted that the governor, following the leakage of the deal, went to Senator Bob’s house in Abuja this evening to tender apologies to him and promised to mop up the mess.

 I must state here, now and for the records THAT THE GOVERNOR DID NOT SUPERVISE ANY OF THE (CRIMINAL) ACTS THAT WAS DONE AGAINST ME… While thanking persons and institutions for their solidarity, I wish all to forgive and forget as I had long forgiven every person for their misdeeds….” – Hon/Barr Onofiok Luke, Akwa Ibom State Law-Maker on his massive beating by Gov. Akpabio’s thugs



ImageDysfunctional people say dysfunctional things. Barrister Onofiok Luke and the whole crowd acting on behalf of the governor can paint it anyway they like.

The fact of the matter remains that Onofiok Luke had a good beating. His coming online to try and convince us that his body received nutrients from the beating is his own business. Trying to convince us that the beating was beneficial to the “Father-Son relationship” that he has with Godswill Akpabio is his own business.
I would not be surprised if he told us that recent blood test showed that the beating even created a flood of vitamin C and Vitamin D and B12 and B6 in his blood stream. I say he might even come online to claim that the beating improved his marriage life who cares? 

Wouldn’t be surprised. After all is there any other thing left to the imagination as far as sycophancy is concerned?
The sucker in the end of the story is Onofiok Luke. He was given what we call an “Impression Beating”. Those who let fly on his Jaw, did it to Impress the Godfather (Godswill Akpabio). If you go back to those guys and search their innermost consciousness they have no regrets launching air strikes on his face. In fact if he shifts the wrong way in front of his “Father” they will do it again.
It is strange that Onofiok Luke’s so called “Father” did not intervene when his face was receiving strong military intervention. His Political “Father” intervened when the surgical strikes on his face was done.

It is not today that the Governor wants to redeem his image in this regards. He has been known to laugh when hearing of serious confrontations made on his behalf. I am talking about confrontations that have led to bodily harm.
He sees revenge on opposition as an act of God and smiles at whatever means exacts the revenge; be it thuggery, be it calamity.

So I am not surprised that when the airstrike began he turned and looked away. We know that the Governor does not supervise beatings done on his behalf but he is aware of the situations and laughs at the unfortunate victim as being stupid enough to oppose his divine destiny.

Now in my earlier writings I mentioned that people sellout themselves and blame others for their demise by resorting to spewing tribal trash. After the beating of Onofiok Luke I have not heard a single statement made about this incident from the so called power groups like IPU or IPC or Uko Ibibio etc . This is where the sellout begins (People remain silent hoping for favor from those who beat their brother to pulp). 

Just saying !!!!!!
Anyway, the worst is the total dehumanization. Just check this out,you are trying to get a suggestion across on your knees (humble House of Assembly sycophant),guys launch airstrike on your face. Then after that pressure is brought to bear and you come online to recount the virtues of the air strike on your face and your Father-Son relationship with the Air Commandant(Godswill Akpabio). The final level of dehumanization. I mean totally sucker punched.
Reminds me of a doctor who had the AIDS virus injected into him. Is there anything more pathetic than an assaulted lawyer who cannot seek legal recourse or an auto mechanic that cannot repair his own car?

I am so tickled by the assertions that he raised his voice. When addressing people in tight political situations in Akwa Abasi Ibom State what is the decibel limit? Yeah,what is the sound limit that if exceeded can lead to air strikes on your face ?

The politically hungry leeches needed a political “god”. Now that you have one, being punched vigorously in the face is no exception for even the greatest of sycophants in the system. Pathetic!
