I warned Nsima against resigning from NDDC – Enoidem
The National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem has lambasted APC’s governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Nsima Ekere for claiming that he was robbed of Victory at the polls.
Mr. Enoidem used his social Media handle to react to a press release personally signed by Mr. Ekere, where he claimed that the PDP robbed him of victory and that he will use all legal means to reclaim his victory.
Barr. Enoidem wrote
“Whoever is the author of this piece wasn’t in Akwa Ibom state on Saturday 9,2019. It will smack of the greatest self disrespect and self depreciation for anyone who was in this state on that date to think or imagine that anyone else won the governorship election in Akwa Ibom State other than Only God: Mr Udom Emmanuel, the patently clear choice of the people.
“I believe that this piece was written in a dreamland. So it remains a pipe dream. I had had occasion to say on this platform some months back that Nsima stood no chance at all in the 2019 election.
“I had advised then that Nsima can re-contest election in 2039 after uyo and Ikot Ekpene Senatorial Districts would’ve had their turns and the governorship rotates to Eket Senatorial District again as I was so sure that 2019-2023 was for Gov Udom Emmanuel to finish his 2nd term tenure.
“Again, this was why I had advised in that piece that it wasn’t reasonable for Nsima Ekere to resign from office as MD NDDC if indeed he loves Akwa Ibom state. Today, am justified in that advice whether it is believed or not. He’s lost out as I knew he was going to.
“There’s no need to consult a soothsayer on why Nsima failed or lost as there’s just no reason why he would’ve won in the first place. Not on the account of his political platform which is alien to our people or has performed so woefully or on his personal score as he has never been seen to demonstrate the qualities of a person who was ready for the serious responsibilities associated with the office of a state governor. To claim otherwise here is self conceited and egotistical”.
“If Nsima lost his LGA on December 2,2017 local government elections, Saturday, February 23,2019 federal elections and lost again on March 9,2019, it is very consistent with form, pattern and history that he clearly lacks the traction to win any election. It is therefore most dishonorable for him or anyone else to claim that Nsima won or stood any chance in winning the March 9, governorship election in Akwa Ibom state or that he was robbed of victory. Which victory. In which elections.
“I think people should learn to have self respect, honesty and dignity to accept the obvious especially what they can’t change.”
