Engr. Chris Ekpenyong, a politician with a solid foundation
A lot of commentators have described the Senator Elect of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District,Engr.Christopher Ekpenyong as a political lightweight.
This lightweight framing may well serve but His Excellency,Engr.Chris Ekpenyong cannot,in truth, be described as a lightweight in the politics of Akwa Ibom State. Where were these modern day “heavyweights” when Engr.Chris Ekpenyong was a Member of the Cross River State House of Assembly in 1983 ?
Where were the “heavyweights” when Engr.Chris Ekpenyong was actively involved,spending his millions in the formation of the UNCP in the era of Gen.Sani.Abacha?
This man who was the rallying point of Annangs alongside the late “Fashion Power” in Lagos in the mid 80’s was fouled out of his coveted position as Deputy Governor by his fellow Annangs in 2005.Someone benefited from that treachery.
But for that coma in his political career, who would have risen in Annang land to his stature.
The shocking political outcome of Saturday, 23.2.19.can best be explained by a philosophical foundation in quantum physics which holds that every action,event , occurrence in life “are all closely intertwined and interconnected”
There is a connection between a rookie in politics and government pushing out a Deputy Governor and taking all the honours Engr.Ekpenyong could have taken all along and this earthshaking turn of event.
The windmill of the gods grind slowly but steadily.
The joke is that this result has come at a point when Engr.Chris Ekpenyong ,on his own, may have resigned himself to “fate”.
There is God in the affairs of men and women.
