Drags the image of the Governor to the mud by publicly showing insanity
– Students in Akwa Ibom State weeps for S.A’s Visionless Leadership and her antics of divide and rule politics which is tearing apart the once united Students Community for her selfish and greedy interest

OTOBONG AQUILA’S ATTEMPT TO DISRUPT NANS ZONE B SENATE MEETING SUFFERS SETBACK AS HER STOOGE, IBEREDEM ESHIET GETS IMPEACHED
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Zone B has successfully conducted its Senate meeting at Abia State Polytechnic, Aba despite attempts by Otobong Aquila Akpan to disrupt the event in order to avert the impending impeachment of one of her cohorts, Iberedem Eshiet who before now was the Zonal Treasurer of the association but was earlier suspended on July 1st due to his unpardonable misdemeanours one of which was the illegal composition of a factional NANS Joint Campus Committee (JCC) in Akwa Ibom State thereby portraying the association in bad light. Sequel to his earlier suspension, a Senate Meeting was called to amongst other things, formally evict him from the association through a constitutionally backed impeachment. Information from credible sources who witnessed the happening has it that Aquila backed a bus full of touts to the venue of the event so as to disrupt the event. She however met a brick wall as the NANS Senators and Zonal Officers were undeterred and the Senate meeting proceeded as planned and Iberedem Eshiet was formally impeached and consequently seizes to function as Zone B Treasurer of NANS.
Proceedings at the NANS Zone B Senate Meeting which were witnessed by NANS Senators from the Zone, JCC Chairmen, Zone B exco, as well as stakeholders are as follows.
The Coordinator of NANS Zone B, Comrade Pedro briefed the Senate about the recent misconduct and misadventures of the Suspended Treasurer as follows:
1. Setting up a factional NANS/JCC in his state without any formal consultations when his office does not have such power,
2. Causing conflict and tension in Akwa Ibom State Students Community.
3. Impersonation: he deceived the Senators with forged documents during Delta State Convention showing that he was a Student of Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic before being allowed to contest elections just to find out he once attended Uyo City Polytechnic which being a private Polytechnic, is not a member union of NANS
Based on these misdemeanours, he was earlier suspended sequel to a petition from student leaders of the Zone.
This was followed by a call for motion of impeachment and same was moved by Senator Ikobong Ekette, SUG President of Akwa Ibom State University and seconded by the SUG President Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwot In the absence of an opposing motion, senators voted in the affirmative and officially endorsed his suspension.
In view of this development, Comr. Akwaowo Clifford Ukpong remains the NANS JCC Chairman, AKS and doubles as the highest students’ leader in the State. During his impeachment, the said Iberedem Eshiet acting on Aquila’s instructions and accompanied by their hirelings attempted to disrupt the proceedings but was ordered out of the senate floor but as stubborn as he was, he tried to resist and was disciplined by security operatives who later took him out of the senate vicinity. His official Identity Card as the NANS Zone B Treasurer was seized from him in other for him not to parade himself as an official of NANS. The said Iberedem was also accompanied by some dropouts claiming to be Senators (SUG Presidents) of NANS notable amongst them was a certain Idorenyin Ukpong who we gathered is a drop out from AKSU who intended to impersonate the Uniuyo SUG President at the Senate floor. He was disgracefully sent out of the Senate floor while deliberations proceeded. A disclaimer was issued to the general public to stop dealing with Iberedem Eshiet as NANS Zone B Treasurer as he has been impeached from office.
The NANS Zone B Convention which will mark the end of the Zone B Exco led by Comr. Pedro Obi and the current Leadership of the Joint Campus Committee in Akwa Ibom State led by Comr. Akwaowo Clifford is scheduled to hold on the 20th – 23rd of October in River State University, Port Harcourt.

Amaechi Vows To Release Names Of Those Sabotaging Security

Published

By


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.

Published

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.

“ I believe what the committee meant maybe oil discovered or produced outside that isoba boundary.”

He assured that president buhari has done well for Akwa Ibom with the development programme been seen in all part  Akwa Ibom state and urged Akwa Ibom people to rally round him for the re-election of President Buhari in 2019
