Ikono 15 Jobless Youths: Enough of cheap blackmail on our Leader Macaire – By Inemesit Monday 



It is saddening that 15 youths will go about sitting together to analyze a personal opinion of David Akpan Ntuk and yet failed to take cognizance of the fact that the (24) paragraphs letter never had the name of the Honourable Commissioner for Works; Ephraim Inyang mentioned in part or in full. Meanwhile, the name of the commissioner formed part of the heading of imaginary conflict these fellows are anticipating in the system.

David Akpan Ntuk in his letter was only to strengthen the P.D.P in the area but we know of your plans to become relevant in the tenure of Itoro Columba as the Council Boss through your usual amnesty style. This fictitious  youths never sit together not to talk of using the same biro pen to sign a document except for a mischievous and misleading purpose as the just purblished one.
It is often said that excellence is in simple details as I urge you all to please go back and read through the publication over and over again for proper digestion as I believe at that point you will come out sorry as your publication was quite extraneous and a one of war igniting. If one is being paid to paint others in bad light I believe the Governor and his cabinet members shouldn’t have formed part of it. What is the rational for the “Lagos Returnees”? who doesn’t travel,who doesn’t come back home?

In paragraph (14) you mentioned the Governor being favourably disposed to supporting Itoro Columba to become the chairman, the same Itoro Columba who is a product of zoning? The same Itoro that was voted by delegates or did the Governor form part? I will beg you desist from this method and let’s unite together to succeed in the task ahead.

If the publication was insulting to the Hon.commissioner for Women Affairs, she particularly heads all the women in the state,she’s from Ini L G.A, I strongly believe there are women groups all over who would respond diligently and youth Leaders from Ini wouldn’t have hid their weapons for a sister to be castigated. But, in your case, you’ve come together to shoot a bird from the bag.

It is my intention to quote this scripture PASSAGE from the Holy Book; Ezekiel 22:12

“There are hired murderers, loan racketeers, and extortioners everywhere! says the Sovereign Lord.”

The same Holy Book in Psalm 112 : 5 SAYS

“All goes well for those who are generous, who lend freely and conduct their business fairly.”

We can see those in the former scripture attacking those in the later. This can best be described as the fulfillment of the word of God!

Why try to fight a mountain that has no tendency of  crumbling? Most persons today claim to be Youth Leaders, this is merely a mirage and a facade as we are yet to see contributions to justify same.

The “article” from David Ntuk had nothing to do with Emmanuel Ukpong-udo, as it was signed in personal capacity and that of his office. It aired his opinion over a particular issue. Yet it pleases you all to bring an innocent man into it, labeling him a character assassin IN A CHARACTER ASSASINATING PUBLICATION,  a highly reputable man whose hard work has paid off. I URGE YOU to bring any political publication ever made by him to substantiate your claims and to please redirect your arrows to the necessary target and desist from distracting Emmanuel Ukpong -Udo from his God’s called purpose.

I personally appreciate your God’s given conscience for mentioning Political Leaders from Different L.G.A’s yet leave Ikono vacant because of your appreciation of Emmanuel Ukpong – Udo as one. It’s a clear sign that you can’t sell your conscience in to to. Dont forget even David’s brothers practically fought him.If Obong Emmanuel Ukpong – Udo woke at about 6a.m in the morning and screamed from his balcony ; I am the “Political Leader” of Ikono! His leadership would have ended in his household as they are also of  Ikono extraction. I believe we wouldn’t have been aware of such a claim neither would it be obvious to the blind and loud enough to deaf ears. I will advise you fifteen UNINFORMED youths who are out to distract our just nominated Chairman and disrupt political activities to go back to your Masters and get proper guidance on the issue of EMMANUEL UKPONG-UDO’S emergence as the Political Leader of Ikono as I well know they wouldn’t be adamant to the substantial fact. In THREE words “THEY PROCLAIMED HIM”.

Today we are busy comparing political leaders like that of Essien Udim,Eket,Ini etc. to that of Ikono, have you forgotten that today in this contemporary world, some persons who are married still sign documents as proud Dakkada ambassadors only in Ikono L.G.A meanwhile the M.D of Payporte is A younger fellow. Why not run a race of self development in this 21st century world than allow yourself to be used as we bear a different political history from that of those areas. Keep a good history for your children please as God blessings follows a man who leaves good things for his children.

Am happy that today we plan to exceed the 40,000 votes that was gained through the Governor’s capacity building as the S.S.G and Macaire’s “House to House Campaign” and the contributions of all others. We are sure going to exceed as Macaire continues a dedicated and committed lover of the P.D.P and the government of Akwa Ibom State.

I wish to point out personally that we’ve never experienced dark days in our political history as claimed. Obong Victor Attah was never bad with us, Senator Godswill Akpabio kept to all his promises and did even more, Udom Emmanuel deserves our right thumb and more for sustainable development in the area.

In this light, I believe it’s time we look at the future and stop praise singing, by involving ourselves in self development  by adopting proactive measure in trying to be in the forefront of developing the society ourselves instead of staying back and waiting to sing praises.The truth remains,this men have moved, they pass through this stage and where never like the fifteen (15) of you. Stop limiting yourselves to irritating purposes.

Oh self acclaimed youth leaders! The same Ephraim Inyang that graced his inauguration as the Political Leader that made your slave masters call Ephraim many names is now relevant to your political GIBBERISH. Have you asked yourselves where your utterances is taking you to? Why not leave him to concentrate in his State called duty?

Dear Sir Ephraim Inyang, take Proverbs 17: 17 “a friend is always loyal,and a brother is born to help in time of need.” 

Keep being a brother to a brother and a friend to a friend. Leave the manipulated 15 devices of the wicked.

To the 15 youths, I bring to your notice that; Obong Emmanuel Ukpong-udo is not a political office holder and as such holds no position in trust for you that gives you permission to rape his reputation and relationship with friends and brothers limb to limb.

You have people you have elected to offices of trust which have never been accountable in any way to you, yet you come to interfere with an enterprising young man, still he continues in his unending human empowerment programs which has been a reason for most political office holders to promise our people a long term empowerment which at the moment is far from our needs as hatred for good things has eaten deep into most people.From your reasoning (15 youths), I believe our Leaders, with plans for empowerment programmes will proceed to imbibing into you a culture of self development (human development) in general as your response is a clear cut disgrace to the people of the area.

I say if we start constructive criticism and abandon praise singing and dehumanization of people, I promise we’ll be stronger and better. We then will chase a better side of history by taking control of our sphere of influence. We can’t keep doing things the same way and expect different results.

God bless you all.

Amaechi Vows To Release Names Of Those Sabotaging Security




Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said that cabals are frustrating the recently approved $198m maritime security contract.

Amaechi vowed to publicly mention names of saboteurs while speaking at a Maritime Stakeholders’ Interactive Forum held in Warri, Delta State on Thursday.

He said “Reason, why vessels will not come to the Eastern ports, is because there is war insurance due to insecurity in the ports here.

“The war insurance means if the goods cost N10,000 in Lagos, it will cost N20,000 here because there is an extra cost on it due to Insecurity issues. Even as a minister, I can’t enter a boat ride from Warri to Port Harcourt due to insecurity issues, but I can move around Lagos at any time of the day.

“I once asked a former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, why people from Anambra don’t import from Port Harcourt port, and he said it cost less to import from Lagos and move to Onitsha even with the price they pay on the road. It is cheaper to import from Lagos to Aba, yet Aba to Port Harcourt is a 30-minute drive.

“For shipowners, you need to do a petition to Mr President. The President approved a contract of $195m for maritime security, but there are people in the system sabotaging the contract because it will restore security in the water. I won’t say who they are until it gets out of control. We are still battling for the contract to take place, but if it gets out of place, we will name them publicly, including the security people involved.

“There are people who make billions of Dollars from the insecurity on the water, so they don’t want security on the water because if we secure the water, all their rubbish will go.

“There are businesses which provide the vessel for oil companies in the name of providing security. The moment we secure the water, they are out of jobs?

Beating for your son for playing football? My God.

Someone please remind him how much Neymar is worth per week!!! Kaii

There is another angle to look at this… No father in his right mind would do this to his own son!!! This is a clear case MENTAL ILLNESS/TRUMA probably due to the nature of his work. I am not a psychologist but I know in that in Nigeria  we lack the culture of looking out for the signs of mental fatigue amongst our workers in all sector. Military /Paramilitary have no proper way of been evaluated for any form of work trauma. This man could be having or experiencing trauma as the result of the nature of his job. May God help him and his family.

Former Petroleum Minister Chief Don Etiebet says the current fuel crisis in Nigeria is caused by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Speaking in an interview in Uyo, Chief Etiebet the APC leader in Akwa Ibom explained that the petroleum distribution in Nigeria is controlled by PDP members who are causing the fuel hike to project President Muhammadu Buhari as a failure.

Buhari is the substantive Ministet of Petroleum in Nigeria.

“Who are still controlling the petroleum distribution in Nigeria; it is still the original PDP marketers.”

He attributed the fuel hike to the impending elections in the country, saying it is an attempt by the PDP marketers to discredit APC.

 “Election time is coming and they are doing all kinds of thing for petrol not to be available, and what do they want? They want increase I petrol price so that they can use that against APC”

Etiebet, who was minister of petroleum under Gen. Sani Abacha attributed all oil spill in the South-South Zone to illegal bunkering.

He said illegal bunkering in Nigeria where sponsored by the previous Government OF Chief Olusegu Obasanjo and Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

“Many Government in the past even up to the last Government have been supporting illegal bunkering; please quote me, I am the former minister for petroleum and I know the details”

On the proposed reintroduction of onshore/offshore oil dichotomy by the APC restructuring Committee, Dr. Etiebet said there was nothing wrong with the committee report.
