2015 Election: Gov. Akpabio Promises To Kill Anyone Who Opposes His Succession Bid.

20 Jul

By Thompson Essien.

During the 2011 gubernatorial race in Akwa Ibom State, scores of people were assassinated, billions of naira worth of properties were destroyed, ballot boxes and other voting materials were carted away at gun points, many people were injured, maimed, and raped—all in the name of politics. Akwa Ibom people rightfully blamed Akpabio for the mayhem, though some of his supporters vouched for his innocence. Since then, many people, such as me, have labelled Akpabio as a man with a killing instinct, who has no regard for life.

Gov. Godswill Akpabio

As they are preparing for the 2015 election, it appears as if Akwa Ibom people are going to be saddled with the burden of what happened in 2011. So far, Akpabio has issued a warning—-which many have interpreted as a coded message for his killers.
Speaking in Uyo during the the foundation-laying ceremony for the construction of the People’s Democratic Party Secretariat in the State, Akpabio said those who want to contest against a candidate of his choice must bow down for him or face death.
Hear him: “Just as God threw Lucifer unto the Earth, those who have betrayed the governor of Akwa Ibom State will not enter the Government House. And because of impatience, Absalom (son to King David) wanted to take over by killing King David. And when David heard, he asked the people to leave him. This did not end up well with Absalom. He died before his father. Those who want to take power through the backdoor will die and the PDP will continue,” he said. (Source:http://www.punchng.com/politics/death-awaits-politicians-se http://www.punchng.com/politics/death-awaits-politicians-seeking-power-through-backdoor-akpabio/eking-power-through-backdoor-akpabio/.)
Those who are close to Akpabio unanimously agree that with mounting opposition, especially from those who once dined and wined with him, inside him, Akpabio knows that he is facing a humongous opposition to his plan towards imposing a successor of his choice.
Those close to him say Akpabio is fearful of the manifestations of a lame duck governor. They say unlike when he was an incumbent in 2011, this time around, he may find it more difficult than he anticipated to stand up to and defeat the voices of opposition against his sole ambition to impose a successor of his choice on the people.
Some observers agree that while it might be one thing for Akpabio to successfully bribe through and intimidate the hierarchy of PDP for the emergence of Udom Emmanuel as the PDP candidate in the State, it will be another task for Udom (or any choice of Akpabio) to win the governorship race——though some people have speculated that Udom may not, after all, be his final choice.
Also, his critics have observed that Akpabio is very scared of losing and that this fear is what is priming Akpabio into issuing irresponsible statements in public places, including the threats to kill his opponents, under the false assumption that such threats will deter potential candidates to withdraw their ambition to contest against his choice of a successor.
Another issue that is making Akpabio to tremble is the awareness that he may eventually lose the State to either another faction of PDP (such as Umana Okon Umana and Albert Bassey Unity Vanguard—just to mention one possibility) or to the opposition (such as the APC, under Senator John Udoedehe and Group Captain Sam Ewang Unity Vanguard.)
One analyst summed it up with these words; “Can you imagine the outcome if Umana, Albert, Udoedehe, Ewang, Okpolum, Bishop Akpan, and maybe Iyanam and Esuene decide to settle their differences and team up (together) to fight Akpabio? The politics in Akwa Ibom State will change—instantly! If such a scenario were to occur, all that speculations of President Jonathan being on the side of Akpabio will be nonsense. Akpabio himself would likely run into hiding and abandon the State before May 29, 2015.”
But no matter the outcome, the politics in Akwa Ibom State can be conducted without assassinations and kidnappings. It is very shameful that an individual, who is privileged to  occupy the position of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Security Officer of the State will issue statements in public that say he will kill those who are planning to exercise their civic rights and responsibilities.
Godswill Akpabio’s threats to kill his opponents must be condemned without any conditions attached. The attitude of Akpabio is primitive, which in the year of our Lord 2014, a leader who holds such killing instincts should not be allowed to occupy any political office in our society.
Say no to imposition. Akpabio must be probed!

INSECURITY IN AKWA IBOM STATE: When Government Propaganda Is Not Enough.

14 Jul

Godswill Akpabio, Akwa Ibom State Governor.

                                          By Ita Awak.
Following the assassination attempt on Chief Soni Udom, the Director General of Umana Okon Umana’s political network on 6th May 2014 in Uyo, a petition had been sent to the Nigeria Police Headquarters in Abuja requesting the highest police authorities to investigate the incident and other cases of politically motivated violence in Akwa Ibom State. The petition, written by an Abuja-based lawyer, Mr Uzoma Igbebulam, on behalf of Mr Umana and all his political associates and supporters, chronicles several other cases of political killings, kidnappings, abductions and harassments of politicians and their relations in Akwa Ibom State since Chief Godswill Akpabio became governor in 2007 and requested the police and other security agencies to conduct investigations into them. The most compelling reason for sending the petition was because the victims of this violence were either the political opponents of Gov. Godswill Akpabio or their family members. Secondly, we also believe that the tendency and eagerness of the government to always blame the attacks on armed robbers were enough to raise sufficient suspicion and therefore should be of interest to the police authorities.
A few examples may suffice: During the re election campaigns of Chief Akpabio, a governorship aspirant, Engr. Ini Udonwa, narrowly escaped death when armed men stormed his residence at night. His mother who lived with him was, unfortunately, not that lucky as she was abducted, murdered and her corpse dumped at the roadside. Before then, the aspirant had received several threats to withdraw from the race. In that same period, the wife of another candidate, Sam Ewang, was kidnapped and kept away for weeks. Mr Paul Inyang, a former zonal officer of the PDP and Mr Imo Udonwa, a prominent member of PDP in the state and former member of the state House of Assembly, were murdered because they were both associated with the former Governor of the state, Obong Victor Attah, and they were both rumoured to be interested in the chairmanship of the party in the state. Retired General Edet Akpan, former DG of NYSC and a PDP stalwart, was kidnapped in the church for his refusal to support Akpabio’s second term re election.  Three female members of the church were killed in the process. Another prominent victim is the former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Nelson Efiong who was also abducted for weeks for not supporting Akpabio’s second term election. In December 2013, Mr Umana Umana himself received a written threat at his Uyo residence ordering him to withdraw from the 2015 governorship race or face death. He promptly reported the threat to the police, but was shocked to learn that the governor had also ordered the withdrawal of his police protection. Was the governor setting up Mr. Umana Umanah for an eventual attack?
It was in the context of all these coincidences and mysteries that Akwa Ibom people were sufficiently alarmed when early this year a prominent politician in the State, Engr. (Chief) Albert Ukpanah, was cold bloodedly murdered in his residence. Late Chief Ukpanah was known for his unstinting opposition to the senatorial ambition of Chief Godswill Akpabio, our state governor. Ukpanah’s killing, followed closely by the attempt on Soni Udom’s life, were enough warnings to prominent Akwa Ibom citizens that the violence that marked the election season of 2010/2011 were making an eerie comeback to the state. They provided the context and the compelling reasons why our lawyers wrote to the police authorities in Abuja, requesting for investigations, especially since the government had also typically blamed armed robbers for the attacks. Why is the Akwa Ibom state government always quick to blame political killings in the state on armed robbers, even before the police commence investigations? And why are these ‘armed robbers’ always attacking the governor’s political opponents, and not the banks, supermarkets, petrol stations and other businesses that deal in heavy cash transactions in the state? Very importantly, is it not curious that none of these armed robbers has ever been prosecuted and convicted since 2010? These are some of the mysteries we requested the police to help unravel.
 As soon as the authorities in Abuja received our petition, the police high command commenced their investigations. We are aware that the police had already invited many persons to their headquarters in Abuja for interrogations; while a set of investigators flew into Uyo recently to conduct further investigations into the subject matter of the petition. To the best of our understanding, the police are yet to conclude their investigations. We were, therefore, shocked to read a press statement issued by Mr. Aniekan Umanah, the Commissioner for Information and Communications in Akwa Ibom and published as an advertorial in The Nation newspaper of 7th July 2014 in which the government spokesman stated that the attempt on Soni Udom’s life was a robbery incident because, according to the him, the suspects had been arrested by the Akwa Ibom State Command of the SSS and that they had made confessional statements to that effect; that on the morning of March 5, 2014, the same day he was assassinated, Chief Ukpanah was at the governor’s official residence where he met with Governor Akpabio to solicit assistance for his wife who was receiving medical attention at a Lagos hospital. The Commissioner then wondered how the same governor, who gladly assisted Engr Ukpanah, would turn around to assassinate him; that Governor Akpabio did not threaten Hon. Ekperikpe Ekpo who is also eyeing the same senate seat as he is; and that Mr. Umana Okon Umana himself has not been under personal threats.
  Since the police headquarters in Abuja are still investigating this matter, we wish to request the Commissioner and other officials of the Akwa Ibom State government to allow the police to do a thorough work and conclude their investigations. By publishing hasty and false conclusions while police investigations are in progress, we believe that the Akwa Ibom State government wants to distract the police from doing its work and deceive and confuse the good people of the state who have suffered unprecedented reign of organised terror, violence, official intimidation, gruesome murders and harrowing kidnappings since May 29th, 2007 when Obong Victor Attah handed over to Chief Akpabio. In fact, records have it that in the last seven years of the Akpabio administration, there have been over 100 cases of unresolved political murders and kidnappings in Akwa Ibom. In the press conference we addressed after the failed attempt on Soni Udom, we had stated several reasons to indicate that the attack could not have been a robbery. One, a gang of five Hausa-speaking and cash-hungry robbers could not have come to Uyo from Nassarawa, Plateau and Benue States with the sole mission of robbing for cash in broad daylight only to  ignore and bypass all the commercial banks in town, the active and lucrative supermarkets that dot the Uyo metropolis, the unprotected petrol stations and other various business places where there are heavy cash transactions only to stray into the obscure office premises of an estate firm owned by Obong Soni Udom.
If the invaders were indeed armed robbers as the Commissioner declared, why did they not ask for cash during their operation at Soni Udom’s office; rather they repeatedly asked “where is oga?” and went about breaking locked doors in search of “Oga.” It is important to note that when one of the armed men started seizing phones from staff, one of them, perhaps the ring leader, reprimanded thus “Is that what we came here for?”
The SSS in Akwa Ibom State paraded before journalists five young men who are said to have owned up as the armed gang that invaded Soni Udom’s office. However, Udom’s staff that were invited to the DSS office in Uyo could positively and definitively identify only two of them. But one fundamental and disturbing finding we made is that during the armed operation in Obong Udom’s office, one of the hoodlums mistakenly shot himself, severing off his right thumb. A picture of this cut-off and bloodied thumb that the killers left in Soni Udom’s office was showed to journalists at a Press Conference Soni Udom himself addressed on Wednesday, 7th May 2014.
One of the gangsters the DSS paraded as the “armed robbers” who went to Obong Udom’s office had white bandage tied around his right index finger. This fellow claimed that he lost his index finger during the operation in Obong Udom’s office. We find this very curious. Perhaps, Mr. Aniekan Umana is in a position to tell the world why the person paraded by the DSS claims he lost an index finger whereas the hired killer that invaded Obong Soni Udom’s office lost the thumb which is still in the custody of Obong Soni Udom. We recall also that the gang had claimed before the SSS that they were led into Uyo by a linkman who is an Akwa Ibom person known as Anas. Regretably, the SSS has not produced Mr. Anas who would be in a position to explain what the mission of his gangsters in Uyo was.
 
 We note that other prominent Akwa Ibomites have been sufficiently alarmed by the re-emergence of violence in their State. Earlier in May this year, Chief Don Etiebet, a renowned businessman, a founding father of the PDP and a member of its Board of Trustees, sent a petition to the Inspector General of Police on the violence in the state. In it, Chief Etiebet chronicles the litany of politically motivated violence and attacks in Akwa Ibom State. He particularly called attention to the fact that “these close coincidences are the reasons why I am sending this letter to you to be aware of the state of insecurity, political brigandage and threats to human life and property in my State prelude to the forth coming Party Primaries in the State with the sole motive of scaring people away from participating in free, fair and open congresses and primariesas the National Chairman has often said. I, therefore, call on you, Sir to do everything possible to prevent a breakdown of law and order in the State and to ensure that violent-free party congresses and primaries are held when the time comes.” Chief Don Etiebet further stated that Governor Akpabio had called him with an unknown number to rain invectives on him. On Thursday, March 20, 2014, a couple of months before Chief Etiebet lodged his petition at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, a distinguished Akwa Ibom son, retired Police DIG Udom Ekpoudom, informed the governor at the government sponsored Abak town hall meeting that he had credible  intelligence that some highly placed government officials and aides of the governor have been recruiting felons and indulging them with car gifts and other pecuniary benefits with the chief aim of using them to unleash violence and intimidate political opponents ahead of the 2015 Governorship race. Chief Akpabio did not provide any response to this charge. Is it possible for these three eminent Akwa Ibom citizens to raise false alarm against their governor? Is it possible for Chief Don Etiebet to write a petition to the IG and send copies to the President and NSA if indeed there is no political violence in our state?
Governor Godswill Akpabio has persistently stoked the embers of ethnic discord in the state by openly inciting brothers to inflict violence on each other, especially those who are opposed to his 2015 politics. For instance, at the Oron town hall meeting on Monday, 31st March, 2014, the governor asked the Oro Traditional Fathers to call on Oro people to violently attack any of their sons who support any aspirant from Uyo senatorial district. The governor’s position was amplified by a former deputy governor of the state, Chief Etim Okpoyo, who stated that any such Oro persons should be burnt alive with their cars. We have all these on tape. In any event, we want to bring to the kind attention of Mr. Aniekan Umanah that never in the 27-year-history of our state had any of his predecessors had the singular unfortunate and depressing task of defending their governments’ alleged involvement in politically-motivated killings, violence, kidnappings and intimidation of the Akwa Ibom people. Not even during the epic resource control battle with the Federal Authorities, a period when highly placed Abuja based Akwa Ibom politicians aligned with the Federal Authorities to wage a fierce battle over the control of the State Chapter of the PDP with Obong Attah, there was NEVER any incident of the harassment, violent intimidation or killing of any of Obong Attah’s perceived political opponents. In the light of this, we imagine that Mr. Aniekan Umanah ought to be seriously disturbed that he appears to be the only Commissioner of Information in the country with the misfortune of repeatedly blaming political killings on armed robbery.   
In the light of all the unanswered questions, our petition to the police was a call for further investigation. Officials of Akwa Ibom State government should therefore not make statements that may interfere with or distract the police from conducting a thorough investigation into the petitions forwarded to them.  If the Commissioner has good reasons to believe that his government is innocent of any involvement in these horrifying events, he should dutifully present his facts to the relevant authorities and stop the media propaganda.

Akpabio Needs To Make Peace With His Enemies.

7 Jul

By Asuquo Nyong Ette

“He should try to reach out personally to those whom he has hurt ( or even hurt him), make a time to wine and dine with them”

Godswill Akpabio, Akwa Ibom State Governor.

Gov Akpabio has barely nine months to vacate the Hilltop Mansion. He might be painting a very horrendous picture of himself in his last lap of his administration. This should be a period of recompense, reparation and restitution; not vendetta!Akpabio‘s advisers are not doing him any justice by trying to make him look very bad at this time of his “good bye to all that”. If after seven years of Thomas purported vituperation and ‘mutiny’ , nothing happened to him, is this the time for payback?

He should try to reach out personally to those whom he has hurt ( or even hurt him), make a time to wine and dine with them. It is no longer time for his man’s Friday to take the front burner. Sycophancy should be trashed by now. Soon he will be an ordinary person, apart from his bullet proof cars, his security will be trimmed, SSS and the dark glasses boys will no longer walk beside his car. It is time for his critics too to shield swords!

But one problem is, his imposition agenda would not let this happen! Even if it is Akpbio’s mother that will take over from him, she will not take instruction from Akpabio after six months! During the first three years of his emergence, I was his big fan! I lauded his generosity and pragmatism. I turned one of his critics when paranoid sycophants turned his administration into money making venture, snitching, blackmailing, spying and even killing sometimes, oblivious of his thoughts. Today what I’m I doing? Watching with my Ishiewu! Of course, there is God oohhhh!! #FreeThomasThomasNow!

Akwa Ibom State Politics: Umana O. Umana Vindicates the Critics of Akpabio.

7 Jul

By Thompson Essien

Akpabio and Umama O. Umana

Umana Okon Umana says Akpabio wants to kill him; this is no news for many people in Akwa Ibom State. It is not a secret that Akpabio will order his “boys” to kidnap, kill, or arrest anyone who disagrees with him.

Umana Okon Umana says Akpabio has a hand in the assassinations and kidnappings of his political associates; this is news!

It is news because the accusation comes from Umana Okon Umana. If anyone knows the intrigues of Godswill Akpabio, that person is Umana Okon Umana. Since 2007 when Akpabio was sworn in as a governor, Umana remained the Secretary to Akpabio’s version of a government, until July 2013, when Akpabio sent his wife to kick him (Umana) out of his cabinet.

Therefore, for Umana Okon Umana to send a petition to the human rights commission in which he accused Akpabio of having a hand in crimes of assassinations and kidnappings, the information in such a petition must be as authentic as the palms of a man’s hand and could not be far from truths.http://leadership.ng/news/377037/alleged-political-assassinations-umana-drags-akpabio-nhrc.)

Umana’s petition to the National Human Rights Commission, or NHRC, is also a vindication of the critics (including me) of Godswill Akpabio, who have all along been saying that Akpabio is responsible for all the heinous crimes in Akwa Ibom State. Be it kidnappings or assassinations, it will not happen in Akwa Ibom State without the knowledge and sanctions of the governor, who is not only the Chief Executive Officer of the State, but also the Chief Security Officer, who have been receiving billions of naira every year known as Security Vote.

It may be difficult to comprehend the magnitude of the allegations leveled against Akpabio. Below is a partial list of all the men and women—all of them peace-loving Nigerians—who have been destroyed by Godswill Akpabio and his administration since he became a governor in 2007. Any indigene of Akwa Ibom State, who goes through the list, will find it difficult to disagree that the crimes have affected him or her in one way or the other.

Udom Emmanuel Still The Puppet Master

Dear Essien Ndueso,
                          A lot of people went through what I wrote . The fact of the matter is that I have received a lot of very positive reviews from people based on this. In the past I would become highly agitated by your failure to understand. However, we are familiar with you and we know how you interpret stuff. Those who got the point did. If you didn’t that’s just too bad. In your attempts to lash out you need to really review how you use words. Castigate?
You may be in denial but we know, minus greed,what the state of affair is for so many people out there. It is beyond you or me or big words like “Castigate”.
Not everybody is a big shot like you ” Personal Assistant to the King in Media” . A lot of us are hardworking people with a clear view of the condition in which the masses exist in.  

Clayton Udoh.

My friend, my views are not something we need to argue about . I am entitled to them . 
Just like your argument that the SSG is so qualified that there should be no elections and he should just be given the office of the Governor of Akwa Abasi Ibom State ,so do I also bring forward my ridiculous statement (in your opinion), that Albert Bassey suffered to get clean running water like the rest of us and others do, till this day in the state . I wrote stupid stuff like he understands how unemployment can be like, especially in times when there was no Internet to use and praise your way into a job (if you know what I mean) . I understand how ridiculous it is when I say that Udom cannot connect with the people like Albert Bassey. I understand how my admiration of Albert Bassey is ridiculous to you . I wrote stupid stuff like he didn’t have a generator once like most of you do to augment the failure of Ibom Power Plant to ever supply electric power to the masses . I also understand your argument that  anybody who is sane should follow “My Leader” and the SSG blindly. 
However ,Essien Ndueso in my ridiculous state of mind,there is a love for Akwa Abasi Ibom state that I have that transcends all possible scenarios you will ever imagine and that includes my distaste for the “leader” installing a Puppetmaster/Stooge for the benefits of the likes of you. 
I am rather interested in a clean democratic process being established that is devoid of any kind of dynasty like we see in highly retrogressive societies. The people of Akwa Ibom State in my opinion are greater than you and the SSG and “The Leader” combined and in my opinion their silence does not mean they are living to their full potential . 
Udom Emmanuel may be busy pushing forward the ” Machineries of government” but the masses will determine if that’s the truth or not  and not a man like you who lives in a bubble of praise and worship. 
Let’s get one thing right ,as an Akwa Ibom son (which you gladly identified me as) my primary duty is to ensure that all candidates will be vetted completely and that Udom Emmanuel will be thoroughly scrutinized before he is allowed to dance into the Hilltop mansion. This is very essential in this day and age,in which your friends (Godswill Akpabio) have assassinated,imprisoned and driven into exile all the people who would have something tangible to say about this candidate and the main populace cowers in fear of of following their conscience. That you identify such scrutiny and true analysis of this individual as bringing him down is regrettable.
We have enough time to bring more information about Albert Bassey,as you in subsequent days will have time to go after every person that will question the candidature of Udom Emmanuel. 
In the mean time remain blessed.
Cheers

Enough is Enough; we need a real Governor!

Akpabio

The son of the Late Assassinated Albert Ukpanah has been picked up by the police. The insinuation made on the young man is that he killed his own father. This is buttressed by the police accusation that he tampered with the scene of the crime .
Here in the USA ,how long would it take for the police to arrive at the scene of the crime ? How long should the young man have left his father lying in his blood in the sand to wait for the arrival of the “Nigerian” police to a crime scene?
In other words this is all nonsense and an attack against that family from the pit of hell.
For crying out loud, this family has gone through enough. I do not have word strong enough  to describe what this looks like and what is happening to the state of morality in this region of Nigeria.
The synopsis is simple; Akwa Ibom State is totally cult infested and the son of Albert Ukpanah is being “squeezed to drop all evidence and information” that may lead to the Father’s killers. You would think that the killing of the Father is enough and that the police should not be used as a vehicle to destroy this family. I fear for the life of the young man in detention and I abhor the present turn of events in Annangland, Akwa Ibom State. 

We need a real Governor who has the power to call his subordinates to order when they are bringing cult tactics against a family. We also need the next Governor to be someone who can deal with the level of infestation of cult dogma and activities in the state.
The “strong” man involved in this case should understand that in killing Albert Ukpanah he has won based on his own standards. Albert Ukpanah uttered some things he did not like about his political aspirations and he killed him. He should not go after the son, he should move on. 
People are so sick that they are blaming Albert Ukpanah for running his mouth and bringing this upon himself. Really ? Instead of the animals realizing that there is a curse on the land when elders are getting killed for money or second terms!!!!

On this very note, I doubt if Udom Emmanuel can operate as the Governor of Akwa Abasi Ibom State! He is not a cult guy and I do not believe he has the spine to deal with these guys that control every level of politics in Akwa Abasi Ibom State. We need someone that can stop this tide of Satanism infesting the state.
Akwa Abasi Ibom State has been sold to Satan and needs to be redeemed. The Killers and Murderers and Kidnappers are the Honorable Alpha and Omega while honest people are the ones hated for their honesty.

The moral compass of the youth has been destroyed and they go after people using character assassination, insults and every tool in the book against those who are telling the truth and asking for change in the system. Their heroes are the new breed of Cult-politicians that give them peanuts out of what they have looted.

That is why I have no pity for the youth in Akwa Abasi Ibom State, for they have chosen what they want the state to be like. A state with No jobs, No opportunity, No Industry, lots of fake motivational Speakers using them as pawns, lots of roads and hotels and stuff they will discover has nothing to do with their own progress as individuals(lots of them will never have cars to drive on those roads or money to sleep in the hotels), Cult-politicians dashing them money and every single person aspiring to become a politician,spending their lives praising and kneeling in front of others for their own livelihood, a land in which you could be killed at the blink of an eye for the sake of a sick person’s ego ! 
Inside this story the Governor’s Super Pension Bill is passed for the joy and praise of the lost youth and lost generation of people who think it is normal to stay at home without a job at the age of thirty; just hustling daily !!!

They insult, blackmail, spite and hold in contempt diaspora because of the manifestation of the greedy ones in our midst. They wish they could harm those  who are outspoken and fighting to stop the corruption that has rendered Akwa Abasi Ibom State an African version of China(Nice Infrastructure full of poor people).

No you tell me, you guys have evolved to the point in which you are killing old men and going after their children and what’s left ?? You guys have evolved into people that laugh at other people’s misfortune based on a total breakdown of law and order and you think, you can escape from such widespread chaos for too long ? 

Mark my words, as the blood spills for whatever excuse(elections, ego, ignorance), so will most of you walk on those hot dry roads of Uncommon Transformation wondering why there are no jobs or opportunities and that’s when God will remind you that you should forget about breakthrough because the land is steeped in people’s blood. Rather go and dance for your friend, the Cult-politician and see if he will give you something for breakfast !

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A hunger for education should continue beyond graduation and should be used to guide and inspire “the next generation of geniuses,” first lady Michelle Obama said Saturday.

In her commencement address at Dillard University, the first lady described the 226 graduates of the historically black college as a “sea of young geniuses” and told them they have opportunities and skills that their parents and grandparents never could have imagined.

“Imagine the impact you will make,” she said. “You have no excuses to stand on the sidelines. Education is still the key to real and lasting freedom. It’s up to us to cultivate that hunger for education in those coming after us.”

 

Mrs. Obama noted how people “scrape and claw” their way to an education, acknowledging the parents who work three jobs to give their children a shot at a better life.

“This is the realization of the dreams of so many who came before you,” she said. “You should be so proud and so happy and so excited, but you shouldn’t be satisfied. Ask yourselves, ‘What about all those geniuses who’ll never get this chance?’ … When people fall behind in school, they fall behind in life.”

She pointed the more than 200 Nigerian girls who were recently kidnapped “for wanting an education and wanting to go to school,” and 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani girl who survived a gunshot to the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012 for advocating education for girls.

The first lady ticked off statistics about the high rate of unemployment and poverty in the black community and the number of people from that community in prison or who are victims of violent crimes.

“You may be thinking those numbers are terrible, but I’m not a part of that problem … but folks like you and me, we can’t afford to think like that ever, because we’re the lucky ones.

“We got here today because of so many people who toiled and sweat and bled and died for us … people who never dreamed of getting a college education for themselves but who worked and saved and sacrificed so that we could be here today. We owe them. We owe them. And the only way to pay back that debt is by making those same kinds of sacrifices and investments for the next generation.”

She encouraged the graduates to start small, such as through volunteering as a tutor or by rallying their communities to start a mentor program, but she didn’t reject the possibility of larger contributions, such as serving on a school board, in Congress or as president.

“Let’s turn that pipeline to prison into a highway to college,” she said.

“I want you all to keep raising your bars,” she said in closing. “Let the next generation know that there is no greater investment than a good education.

Obama also received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from the university as did U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who joined Obama for a meeting later Saturday with spouses of veterans at an event at the National World War II Museum.

The top four Dillard graduates all coincidentally come from Nigeria. The 20-year-old valedictorian, Merrilyn Akpapuna, who comes from the southeastern corner of Nigeria, plans postgraduate study at Western Michigan University in the fall.
