By Abasiama EtukAkpan
Like him or not, he is a political enigma in the Politics of Akwa Ibom North West(Ikot Ekpene) Senatorial District and Akwa Ibom State in general . With experience in the turbulent water of politics for over a decade, the name,Enoidem is never strange among men that stands tall for the Akwa Ibom Project and defends what is right and just in todays political developments and history.
Having served diligently as Executive Chairman of Etim Ekpo LGA, State Treasurer of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP),Honourable Commissioners in different ministries of Housing and Urban Renewal, Special Duties, Commerce and Investment.Today he is the National Legal Adviser of the PDP,he has made an indelible mark in the sands of time.
History has it that Emmanuel Enoidem(esq)has always been a great supporter of the Akwa Ibom project since the birth of democracy in his home state . Between, 1999-2003,during the Obong Victor Attah’s regime, he was a voice to reckon with in terms of governance and the progress of Akwa Ibom State. He played a pivotal role to support the government emerge during the era. Between 2007-2015,during the Chief Godswill Akpabio administration, he played a very key role in the support for the development of the state. He was a key player in the administration because he has something to offer to his people and the government of Akwa Ibom State. He was never found wanting in the discharge of his duties and served the state diligently.From 2015 till date, he has worked tirelessly for the development of Akwa Ibom State during the current regime of Deacon Udom Emmanuel. He has been one of the ardent supporters of this administration and has done everything to stand for the development of his state and her people.
Enoidem, as many know him, is a man of his words and does not speak from both sides of his mouth. When the whole state were thinking that he may defect to the opposition party in the State sometime in August, 2018,he stood his grounds and ensured he stands for what he believes in with his whole heart. He believed so well in the Akwa Ibom project and ensured success for his party in the just concluded 2019 polls. He was seen like one of the lions in Annang nation and Akwa Ibom State that fought to liberate her people from political slavery and iberiberism. Today his people have been liberated from politics of godfathersim and are taken to the government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Yesterday, March 14,he made an uncommon history in the political history of Akwa Ibom State when he supported his boss,Engr Christoper Ekpenyong(Ukarakpa) to be elected as a Senator that shall speak effectively for the people of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District and subsequently presented with a certificate of return. To many, it was like a normal political merriment, but to me it was more than that, but more of a political legacy because he stood his grounds and defeated all human factors that stood against him and his party.
The success of all PDP candidates in just concluded elections can be attributed to men of integrity in Annang nation and the State in general like Barr Emmanuel Enoidem falls in this category. He is one man that understands the game of politics and reads the game like a good football coach and knows when and where to strike or defend. His political sagacity is unparalleled.
His kind is rare in Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District and Akwa Ibom State. His burning love for the Akwa Ibom project is comendeable. He is a true son of his father and mother,a reliable son of Annang Nation and a committed leader and supporter of the Akwa Ibom Project.
His name is Barr Emmanuel Moses Enoidem .
