Election 2019: If it’s boasting, I give it to Akpabio
By Nsikak Pius
He sang the lines in almost every campaign he went and even attempted to declare himself God, when he asked “Where was Only God, when I made Udom Governor in 2015”
Funny as it sound, the man who climbed to the top by the grace of God, totally forgotten how he used to suffer with a push and start car in Lagos before he was called to become a Commissioner by Obong Victor Attah.
This same man nicknamed Governor Udom Emmanuel – Lagos returnee, forgetting that he was also a Lagos returnee. And his famous chorus “The mockery of PDP” would earned him a place in the Oscar for his display of stupidity and an uncommon madness.
It’s on record that after witnessing his defeat in 8 out of the 10 local government area in his Senatorial district, he went round from local government area to local government area trying to bribe INEC officials and top PDP stalwart with millions of naira to help him changed the election result to his favour.
When that did not work, he kidnapped the electoral officer from his local government area (if you can recall, it took almost 2 days before the Senatorial result from Essien Udim was released) and cooked up the results of Essien Udim due to desperation without any prior attention to number of Permanent Voters Card collected in Essien Udim.
Permit me to say that, this same man within four months has graduated from the boaster in Chief to the Complainer in Chief.
Yesterday, he vowed to reclaimed his stolen mandate at the tribunal, today, his media urchin are spreading falsehood everywhere. As a Nigerian and a lawyer with over 15 years experience, we all know how it will end, he lose the election and there is no magic that the tribunal can do to change the will of the people.
I think what he is trying to do is to buy himself some time and save his face from shame.
