APC run, Nsima is coming
By Ewa Okpo Edmund
Who says “finally, the election has come and gone so let us rest”? The scripture warns “there’s no rest for the wicked…” And goes further to assure “the Lord grants his beloved rest…”
This is exactly what has been playing out in Akwa Ibom State since the election ended. While those of us of the stock of Peoples Democratic Party are moving forward joyfully with state building our counterparts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the other hand have known neither rest nor peace.
Of course it would have been passable were it just post waterloo anguish, especially considering the fact that they saw their defeat coming miles away but were utterly helpless about it . I mean, who quarrels over a defeat he clearly saw coming except unless he was conned into staking against it for whatever reason?
Majority of the folks in APC if not all knew that they lacked a formidable structure to engage the PDP in anyway in Akwa Ibom State but just had to play along to meet some ends of theirs. Sincerely, it is totally impossible for every power jobber in a particular state to broker for only one political stock in any open season.
So they, knowing they could not win election for Nsima Ekere, kept on assuring him of victory at their various units, wards and local governments. And he believed. Blame not Nsima Ekere for living in such fools paradise for whenever he had doubts about their promised grassroots victory the Political Merchants came along with assurances of federal mights. according to them even if he finds a little challenge coasting away in victory the umpire will by Presidential fiat declare him winner! And to cast his faith in stone came prophets proclaiming on God’s behalf how he lounges at the Hilltop Mansion. Who will not believe a man with the yam and knife promising a meal of yam and oil?
But they all lied and Nsima died when the die was cast. In the end most of these men enriched themselves at the detriment of “one” through deceits throwing caution to the wind as far as the true nature of Nsima is concerned.
Trust Obong Nsima Ekere for the man he is. A no-nonsense machiavellian. Once his defeat albeit flawlessly became crystal before the world he moved to indemnify his estate before squalor came upon him. Right about now, Nsima Ekere is going about retrieving all the monies and cars he gave to his deceptors nay contractors.
In Essien Udim LGA the APC House of Representative candidate for Ikot Ekpene Federal Constituency Hon. Emmanuel Akpan stormed his LG arresting all the stakeholders and elders who collected monies from him with the promise to deliver him and made sure they returned his last kobo before bail. Truly, the police is your friend.
In Onna where Gov. Udom hails from his kinsman Bishop Sam Akpan who had promised to deliver the LG to Nsima Ekere or split the votes substantially was found wanting when the results were announced. Trust Emperor Nsima as a respecter of no man. He stampeded the “Foolish Bishop” recovering his “Jeep” and its appurtenances with force, one or two knocks and slaps deposited for good measure.
Now, the whole band of contractors in APC are either running helter skelter from Nsima’s buses, cars and monies or do something to woo him into tampering mercy with his Justice which explains why some have been falling over themselves in the contest to write press releases of how they won 26 Local Government Areas for him. So much for all the promises to pay bursary, pensions, grants and other fiscal bonanzas when Nsima becomes Governor. NDDC MD that cannot empower his people from his office not to talk of enriching his supporters with his election is it bursary and grants that he’ll pay as Governor?
So far so good, some social and political commentators have been criticizing HE Obong Nsima Ekere for retrieving his cars and monies from some of his supporters claiming that they were political gifts. This to me is not being fair to Nsima. The man is not God. Only God gives and doesn’t take back. Nsima Ekere is not God.
Now talking about God and Men we even hear that those he couldn’t find in their homes, offices or on the road to recover his monies and cars he’s sent his Recovery Squads to catch them at their churches during Sunday service today. This too I will not criticize.
However, where I will criticize Nsima for his recovery justice is where he fails to storm the churches of those prophets that falsely assured him of victory at the polls to recover his tithes, offerings and car gifts. That alone would have even made the recovery exercise easier for him. Nobody will hear how Nsima Ekere collects his monies and cars from a “man of god” and not quickly run down to his estate at Lagos Street, Ewet Housing returning the monies and car he collected by himself. Wisdom the bible says is profitable to direct. I hereby donate this wisdom to Nsima pro bono.
Men and Brethren if you’re still in church right now and your car is parked outside, I mean the one Nsima gave you or you’ve already given tithe and offering from the monies you collected from him to deliver your unit or ward for him… Run!
Happy Sunday y’all
