Akpabio’s 2015 Shenanigans: Overrules His EXCO, Eliminates Effiong Abia from Endorsement.

*Dangles SSG Position on Bassey Albert 

By Weekly Insight Newspapers

Governor Godswill Akpabio has again dipped deep into his bag of tricks and shenanigans, overruling his executive council barely 24 hours after he had made them sign an unprecedented endorsement document on who should be governor in 2015. On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, Akpabio called another meeting of his Executive council, where he informed them that the three candidates they had endorsed were too many. 

 

He said it was important to further narrow the choice to two candidates to make room for a better choice and a more effective coordination. He told them that Effiong Abia should be delisted leaving the battle for Udom Emmanuel and Ekpenyong Ntekim. As would be expected, there was no challenge to the governor’s decision, though coming just a day after he had led the exco members to select the trio of Udom, Abia and Ntekim.

Our source, a commissioner who attended the meeting said the entire proceeding was dominated by the governor, who continuously boasted that no power anywhere in the world can stop him from having his way as far as the 2015 governorship election was concerned. He said that he had the magic wand to buy over supporters of other aspirants not favoured by the Exco arrangement. He told them that even if it means using the state’s six months allocation to achieve his purpose, he was willing and committed to doing it. He said he has so far commenced the process of buying other aspirants’ supporters with the number of PRADO Jeeps already distributed, adding that more jeeps and millions of naira would be dangled before some of the aggrieved party members.

“His Excellency boasted that with the amount of inroad he has made in Abuja; that not even the national chairman nor the president of the country could stop his choice and urged us not to entertain any fear of defeat”, the commissioner said.

He was said to have pressured his Finance commissioner to drop his governorship ambition and support the preferred candidates. He was promised the office of SSG after the election. This was as a result of the commissioner’s refusal to sign the Monday night endorsement document in a meeting coordinated by Mr. Don Etim, regarded as the “Dean of Commissioner”.

This will be a major blow to supporters of Barr Effiong Abia, who had been upbeat since the signing of the endorsement document that included his name. His upcoming thanksgiving service in Oron next week has received a wide boost following the said endorsement. But one of the supporters of the Mbo-born politician insists that whatever the governor or any person is doing cannot change what God has already kept for Abia.

The elimination of Abia from the list is a surprise move by Akpabio, prompting many to assume that the governor has not still made his final moves. One Edet Amba, who spoke to Weekend Insight, insists that Abia remained the governor’s choice, adding that all the necessary assurances have been extricated from the governor.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME WITH THE HUMRELLAH!

Goodluck Jonathan, Presidet of Nigeria

Goodluck Jonathan, Presidet of Nigeria

Following the disgraceful convention of the largest party in Africa, the PDP that is, President Goodluck Jonathan summoned an emergency meeting of all humblerrah governors last night at the Presidential villa.

Mr President openly begged the Gominas to stop disgracing him (GEJ) in public. He looked subdued, as he called on the governors to sheathe their sword.

If Mr President expected a reprieve and a soft pedal from the breakaway faction of governors, he was in for another rude SHOCK when the 7 dissident governors stayed away and sent Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to offer Jonathan two conditions for peace and for meeting with him :

1) President Jonathan should PUBLICLY announce his intention NOT to contest the 2015 presidential election, which has been identified as the ‘forcep origo’ the source of origin, that is, of the political crisis and tension in the country.

2) The Party (PDP 1 & PDP 2) should hold a fresh convention where Bamanga Tukur and other candidates imposed on the party by Jonathan and his goons shall be kicked out of their positions in the NEC for unbiased persons to be elected in a truly transparent, free and fair manner, which shall be audible to the deaf and visible to the blind!

President Jonathan has been unsettled by the public disgrace the breakaway faction of the PDP gave him during the convention at the Evil Square. He had invited President Obasanjo to his residence for advice. It was the Ebora of Owu and Father of Modern Nigeria Menace who personally stayed away from the Evil square that advised GEJ to invite the rebellious governors for a meeting. Jonathan was further unsettled when the breakaway governors sent only one of them, the RED cap wearing leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement to give him their conditions for peace which include inter alia, him (Jonathan) committing a political harakiri.

As it were, Jonathan is torn between the Devils alternative because which ever option he chose, men will die.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives is also contemplating pledging his allegiance publicly with the Leaders of PDP-2 faction. There are also speculations that other governors in PDP-1 will soon jump ship and declare their support for PDP-2.

The days ahead promises to be exciting, as a lot of political interest within the sinking PDP plan to abandon Mr Jonathan, the CLUELESS and his team of looters/THIEFING party THIEFTAINS, by openly pledging allegiance to the breakaway faction.

In the last line to Mr President!

A rebel force with superior tactics and political strategies in a war of attrition and belligerancy, has given you the recipe for peace in order to avoid chaos.

1) Stand down your mundane ambition for 2015.

2) Call for a new convention and discard the charade of last Saturday, where you are your goons entertained the world in a comedy series with speaker after speaker masturbating verbally in the village square, such that Godswill Akpos, your ERRANT BOY governor of Akwa Ibom state after drinking an overdose of adulterated Kain – kain mixed with Akpetenshi cannot tell the difference between Nigeria and Washington D.C in America. Jonathan himself was not left out from the comedy show when he declared that the PDP has delivered on all its promises to Nigerians inter alia.

Mr President, the collective good of the masses is far more important than your mundane non altruistic ambition to cling on to power just for the sake of being addressed as Mr President, in the absence of any positive clue on how to move the nation out of the doldrums. More so you lack track records or signatures of performance, save for blind looting, in short STEALING of our common patrimony!

A group of dissident rebellious governors from your so called largest party of thieves have given you the recipe for peace. A political harakiri! DO IT! Take the plunge!
