We will not allow any Warsaw to happen in Akwa Ibom – Udom Emmanuel
You will recall that a former governor of the State and a former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Obot Akpabio was quoted as saying that APC will take over Akwa Ibom just like it was the case when Hitler took over Poland stating that “Warsaw saw war and war saw Warsaw”
But speaking with State House correspondents shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Emmanuel noted that the plans of the APC to cause mayhem in Akwa Ibom State will not distract him from his developmental strides in the State.
He maintained that there was no cause for alarm.
“There is something you people must know. When it comes to power it is only God who determines and we are conscious of that. We are professionals who have made names in other places. So, when people just discuss some of these things we keep doing our own businesses.
“At times, some of these things are to distract you but we refuse to be distracted. We play politics of development and our people are seeing that. So, whatever would have tried in any way to distract us we don’t want to be distracted. So, don’t be bothered about that. It is only God who determines what happens the next minute, not man. And no man is God.
“At the moment , Akwa Ibom State is very peaceful. We only hear of those plots. I am sure you people heard where people were pronouncing that Warsaw, Warsaw, and that’s what they wish Akwa Ibom would be.
“But we indigenes are saying no, we are peaceful and we want to maintain peace. Whoever wants to live by Warsaw, will also see war on his own, not within the state. Because, most of those people that make these pronouncements, ask them where are their children?
“So, who are those children that you are pronouncing this Warsaw for? Election does not call for that. That’s not democracy!
“People can give different kinds of meanings for democracy, but that’s not democracy. Our own democracy is about development and I think we’re conscious of that. As of today in terms of internal security I think we are still doing very well and we’ll continue to carry everybody along.” he added
