Group Blasts Akwa Ibom Governor, Calls Him Ingrate
We read the statement attributed to the ungrateful governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel against uncommon Senator Godswill Akpabio with great shock and bewilderment.
We had waited long for the ungrateful governor to denounce the story credited to him as saying uncommon Senator Godswill Akpabio is a greedy, arrogant and egocentric fellow but such was not forthcoming.
Therefore, we are forced to remind the oracle of the tree it was calved out from because it seems the oracle is going beyond it’s boundaries.
Let it be noted that the ungrateful Governor Udom Emmanuel was an obscure man who couldn’t have become anything even in his Local Government in Akwa Ibom State until Akpabio singlehandedly made him governor.
He is a man who is too disconnected from the political realities of Akwa Ibom State until uncommon Senator Akpabio dusted him up and used all his connections, resources and influences as then Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum to make him governor of the state against all odds and barriers.
But little did the uncommon Senator knew that the illiterate jurat was an ungrateful and deceitful fellow who will never appreciate his kind and generous gestures not even when he made unnecessary enemies because of the ingrate.
At worst, we never expected the ungrateful governor to castigate his political benefactor in the public forum with denigrating words let alone calling him a greedy, arrogant and egocentric man. May our gentle kindness never bring troubles to us, Amen.
Meanwhile, following the planned defection of the uncommon Senator to the All Progressives Congress this week, the ungrateful governor has assembled a well funded propaganda machneries in connivance with the media apparachiks of the PDP to scandals, demonise and fabricate fake, spurious and unfounded stories against Chief Akpabio but we are never afraid of that as we are equally up to the task.
Therefore, we appeal to Nigerians to ignore whatever lies the ungrateful governor and his lying machines would ditch out to them in the form of news reports or opinion articles.
We also appeal to the good people of Akwa Ibom State to support the new political move of uncommon Senator Godswill Akpabio as he forges new frontiers for the betterment of the state and the entire South-South region.
On our part, we will stop at nothing but making sure that the ungrateful governor becomes a one term governor of Akwa Ibom State.
