The Chronicles Of Sen. Akpabio’s Lies: The Brazenness Of A Chronic Liar And Uncommon Clown
By Umani Uwemedimo
The name ‘ Senator Godswill Akpabio’ is a household name in the political sphere of Akwa Ibom State and maybe Nigeria at large. While to few people, the name denotes bravery, competency, sincerity and effectiveness, but to many, the name is consentaneous to the attribute of a prevaricator, conspirator, betrayer, failure and national comic.
On Wednesday 8th August 2018, Akpabio at Ikot Ekpene Township stadium claimed he was defecting to APC for ‘National’ interest, but coming to eat his words by claiming he never defected from the PDP is something one cannot ascertain. How the mighty has been reduced to a clown.
Akpabio, few hours after his defection said, “Why APC? You need to know that I’m a NATIONALIST. In troubled times like this, when a country is at war, all hands must be on deck to serve the federation. This is a difficult moment for Nigeria.
“In a period of election or in a period of national emergency, everybody should put hands together to support the government to bring peace to people. I will like to be a CONSPIRATOR who joins hands to CONSPIRE to bring food to the table of Nigerians.”
As at then, it was a pursuit of national interest, how come it has definitely gyrated into an altar for solace? Akpabio claiming he was expelled from PDP days before he joined the APC has ascertained the fact that he’s nothing but a serial pathological lying demon. It’s painful to note that once an Uncommon National Hero has been reduced into a National Coward and Comedian only because of greed and pride.
Sen. Akpabio even before he emerged the Senator representing Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District in 2015 was already seen as a chronic liar. He had lied all through his days as governor of the State that he had no knowledge about the thousands of people massacred under his watch but yet, he wantonly slaughtered late Dr. Imeh Umanah and Elder Albert Ukpanah, ate them and diluted their remains with Hennessy, then came out again to shed wolve’s tears claiming he knew nothing about their death. The curse he placed on the killers of the duo above is what is hunting him today. Akpabio should be delivered from a self-inflicted curse before his psychopathy gets out of hand.
On February 4th 2019 when he foresaw his failure was inevitable, he hurried to Channels TV to denounce his already purported incitation of war in the State in the form of ” Warsaw saw war”, and the claim that Gov. Udom Emmanuel was a mistake he needed to correct during the March Gubernatorial election. But these were statements he made openly during his reception by his APC cohorts on August 8th of last year in Ikot Ekpene. The Video of him while addressing a crowd that day, was replayed in his presence the following day. That Akpabio could now say he’s not the person in the video, that maybe he’s cloned. If our man could lie to this level, then Mr. Senator is a National LIAR.
This was the same video he denied that he never said ” if Udom Emmanuel wins the 2019 Gubernatorial election, I shouldn’t be buried in Ukana when I die”. This was another lie by our uncommon liar and one is left with no other option thas to ask, ” when will our National clown ever accept responsibilities for his words and actions? Indeed, this has made me subscribe to the claims by Sule Lamido that Senator Akpabio is a COWARD.
Because his brothers refused to join him in his fight against God and the people, Akpabio tried to make the people rebel against his brothers by fabricating a lie that the brothers pocketed all the monies and other valuables he released for the empowerment of the people when he was governor for 8years. This version of lie had suffered great miscarriage even before it was birthed: At least, the Akpabio as a chronic liar has been made factual that even a baby inside the womb can ascertain.
The recent lie stemmed from the purported movement and defection has paved an avenue where the chronicle of Akpabio’s lies are brought into bare. And one may be forced to ask, ” does Sen. Akpabio really have a shaming face? I know he’s shameless, but he should know his shame is shaming some of us already.
‘Ceteris Paribus’, Sen. Akpabio though unable to give a clear distinction between ‘ movement’ and ‘ defection’, he was only able to divulge to the world that yes, he’s no longer in PDP which means he DEFECTED to APC. This point is very consequential in a time like this.
Now that all have been said, I want to advise Our Uncommon National Failure to stop acting a National drama. He should comport himself while awaiting the final verdict prior to the case against his movement to the APC fold. No one is going to crucify him if he fails to stage more drama of lies. Though we know him to be a chronic liar, he should lie with integrity next time he aims at it.
