The once talked about glittering lights are becoming deem in Ikono Local Government Area, as Hon. Nyakno Uwemedimo Okoibu the inexperienced and egoistic Executive Chairman that was chosen by Justice John Inyang Okoro to govern Ikono as compensation for his late father who was egalitarian in times past is noted for always unleashing his aides to call out the Federal House of Representatives member and other Political Office holders on social media and wherever they go for leisure.

Okoibu who was hand-picked polished and presented to the people as a godsent leader upon assumption of office has been intoxicated by power and has allowed the privilege of office to becloud his sense of reasoning, respect, and service delivery. The chairman who appointed one Nsisong Ubong Ntuk and a certain Mfon Ottuk two opportunists like him as aides to serve in the capacity of Chief Press Secretary and Personal Assistant on Special duty has been using them in recent times to lunch attacks on other elected political office holders in the area.

This reporter writes authoritatively that the duo Nsisong Ntuk and Mfon Ottuk who are notorious blackmailers both work directly for the chairman and acts on the orders of the Executive chairman who can not account for any single visible project to his name since he became the chairman of Ikono in December 2020 apart from running a family government with his immediate family members have been using them to discredit, disrespect, and insult other political office holders in the Area.

Okoibu goes around the state boasting that nothing can happen to him because he has connection with Justice John Inyang Okoro and the Honorable Commissioner for Chieftaincy Affairs Hon. Frank Archibong always claims that his connections gave him the office, not the governor and that they can call the Executive Governor of the state anytime and he will do his bidding without hesitation recently harassed and sent his security orderly to beat up the Leader of The House, Ikono Legislative Council Hon. Nsikak Ntok, immediately after the People’s Democratic Party Special congress which was conducted in Uyo. He went as far as threatening to deal with the Leader of the House till he regrets becoming a councilor during his tenure in office as the Chairman of the council.

The chairman sending his dogs on a Federal House of Representatives member who occupies a greater office than him and is speaking for thousand of Ikono/Ini people in the Federal House of Representatives is the highest level of insanity and disrespect from a political office holder to another political office holder and should be called to order by whoever is close to him before it goes out of hand.

Rep. Emmanuel Ukpong-udo canvasses the support of the House to tackle a key problem in the Nigeria’s education sector



The House of Representatives on Wednesday mandated the Committees on Basic Education, and Science and Technology to address the issues of

falling standards of education in Government-owned schools to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and ensure the training and retraining of Teachers across the Federation.

This resolution followed a motion on the “Need for Continuous Training and Retraining of Teachers in Nigeria” moved by Hon. Emmanuel Ukpong-Udo (PDP, Akwa Ibom).

Presenting the motion in the House, the lawmaker noted that the Federal Ministry of Education is responsible for the establishment and maintenance of
minimum standards in Primary and Secondary schools across the Federation.

Hon. Ukpong-Udo expressed worries that the current standard of education in government-owned schools does not equip the pupils and students to compete effectively in the modern age of science and technology and to raise a creative generation of entrepreneurs that will be self-sufficient.

The lawmakers expressed grave concern that even when the curriculum is appropriately reviewed to promote STEM education, the teachers are not trained and sensitized to teach the same.

The motion further noted that there is a need to engage the Primary and Secondary School Teachers in continuous training and retraining to enhance their capacity and productivity to be in line with modern-day realities.

“This motion is seeking to improve the performance and management responsibilities and to also improve quality teaching and learning processes.

“The quality of any educational system depends to a great extent on the quality of teachers.

“Teachers are the most important component any of any educational system because they are the people to shape the behavior, thinking, and attitude of the pupils and students in the teaching and learning situation,” he said.

The Lawmaker insisted saying, “we all know that quality of teachers determines the quality of knowledge imparted to the students and the quality of learning outcomes.”
