Plot to arrest, frame up and detain PDP chieftains in Akwa Ibom State by Senator Godswill Akpabio and Nsima Ekere
This is to alert Akwa Ibom people, security agencies and the international community of a sinister plot by Mr Nsima Ekere, the sacked immediate past Managing Director of NDDC and APC Governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom state and Senator Godswill Akpabio, to frame up, arrest and detain some PDP chieftains in the state as part of their grand conspiracy to cause chaos, anarchy and bloodshed as a prelude to rigging the 2019 election in Akwa Ibom state.
Credible intelligence indicates that the serially rejected and severally sacked APC Governorship candidate, Mr Ekere and his Warsaw advocate, Senator Godswill Akpabio have hired some miscreants to foment trouble in the state, tomorrow, February 22, 2019, with a view to getting arrested by security forces and use an already prepared and stage managed confessional statement to implicate the PDP National Legal Adviser, Hon Barr Emmanuel Enoidem, the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Works, Mr Ephraim Inyang, Senator Bassey Albert, the Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Onofiok Luke and others as their sponsors.
Available intelligence has also reveals that this wicked, barbaric and devilish plot is being spearheaded by an aide of Mr Ekere and these thugs brought in from outside the state to execute the aforementioned plot are already camped in Akwa Ibom preparatory to the execution of the task they have been assigned to undertake.
We want to state categorically, without fear or contradiction, that no amount of intimidation, threat, plot to arrest, detain, frame up or assassinate any PDP chieftain or high ranking member of the party in the state will weaken the resolve of all PDP members in the 31 Local Government Areas of the state to support, vote for and defend the wishes and aspirations of Akwa Ibom people who are resolute and unweavering in their resolve to support the second term bid of Governor Udom Emmanuel towards consolidating on the gains of his industrialisation policy and the prevailing peace and security witnessed in the state since May 29, 2015, contrary to what was obtainable in the state from 2007-2015.
The resort by the APC to intimidate and arrest PDP members only exposes the unpopularity of the APC in the state and shows the world clearly that the APC have already lost the elections even before the first ballot is cast, contrary to earlier boast by Senator Godswill Akpabio that elections will be over in 3 hours.
We however call on security agencies to rise above board and exhibit patriotism, professionalism and neutrality in the discharge of their duty, before, during and after the election.
Let us also use this medium to warn Senator Godswill Akpabio and Nsima Ekere, to stop playing God with the future and destiny of Akwa Ibom people. Akwa Ibom has never and will never be their private property and the people will come Saturday, February 23, 2019, take their destiny in their hands by securing their future and the future of generations yet unborn by voting massively for the PDP.
We however warn that should anything happen to any PDP chieftain in the state, Godswilll Akpabio and Nsima Ekere should and would be held responsible and unlike what was obtainable in 2011 and 2015, every action by anybody leading to the death of any Akwa Ibom son and daughter with regards to the 2019 elections will have consequences.
We call on all PDP members to remain calm even in the face of extreme provocation, ignore the wicked antics of the APC which is nothing but the empty plot of a frustrated and desperate party who are unable to come to terms with their total rejection by the electorate and come out enmasse to not only vote out the APC but also enthrone through the ballot, the faith Akwa Ibom people have always had in the PDP since 1998.
May we also use this medium to call on President Muhammadu Buhari, to for once, be aware of this criminal conspiracy to cause a break down of law and order in Nigeria’s most peaceful state and caution his desperate party men in Akwa Ibom state to play by the rules and test their self acclaimed popularity by the ballot and not by guns, blood and intimidation.
We can never be intimidated! We shall never be afraid! We shall defend the will and vote of Akwa Ibom people matter the cost.
