FFK PENS THIS TOUCHING LETTER TO GODSWILL AKPABIO
-Perfect way to start the week. We move on.
“THE COWARD CALLED GODSWILL AKPABIO” By FFK
“You remain the father of the nation, our father and political father to all. Just like i told Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Osinbanjo yesterday in Nigeria… Those who think that they have politically grown to insult you will all regret it before month end sir. I am here (London) to register my undiluted love and unalloyed support to you. I was involved in all their meetings and I know what their plans are. The long recess of NASS is going to be your advantage and not theirs like they thought and planned”- Senator Godswill Akpabio to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Those that do not have the courage of their convictions and that do not have the guts to stand against tyranny when under fire are not worthy of being called men: they are little better than beasts.
The fact that the former Governor of Akwa Ibom, Senator Godswill Akpabio, is a coward and a traitor is no longer in dispute. The fact that his brazen treachery knows no bounds is what can best be described as “settled law”.
A leader must be ready to sacrifice his liberty and life in defence of truth, justice and righteousness and he must be prepared to defend his nation, faith, people and loved ones no matter the price he may have to pay.
Sadly such noble virtues and high standards are lost on men like Akpabio. To them such matters and sentiments are like Greek or Latin: they can neither understand their meaning or grasp their import.
They fail to appreciate the fact that fear is not a virtue but a vice. They refuse to acknowledge the fact that to blink the eye, surrender, compromise, buckle, capitulate and bend your knee to the tyrant and his minions in a futile and last minute attempt to preserve your liberty and life is utterly shameful.
Akpabio’s desire to decamp to the APC due to his trepidation and fear of the EFCC and Buhari’s regime is pitiful. If he has not done nothing wrong then why the fear? Where is his faith in God?
And if he has done something wrong, given the fact that he has opposed them virulently for the last three years, does he honestly believe that the Buhari regime will not punish him by using it against him if they manage to get back to power next year.
If he believes that then he is not half as intelligent as I once thought.
Aside from that the following questions come to mind. Does he honestly see any good in Buhari and his goverrnment? Is that what he thinks that Nigerians deserve to suffer for the next few years and if so what is their crime?
Has he forgotten the gratuitous insults that Buhari dishes out so lavishly on the Nigerian people whenever he travels abroad and speaks to foreign leaders and the foreign press?
Has he forgotten about all those that the Buhari government has killed and all those that have died and suffered in the struggle against them? Does the shedding of innocent blood by a desperate government mean nothing to him?
Has he forgotten the tears of the tormented and persecuted and the cries of the widows, orphans and the bereaved whose loved ones were butchered by jihadists, religious fanatics, cow-lovers and ethnic supremacists over the last three years?
Has he forgotten the anguish of those whose loved ones have been locked up indefinately and those who have been demonised and subjected to the most barbaric and insidious media witchunts in the history of our nation?
Has he forgotten the practice of double standards in the application of our laws? Has he forgotten about the slaughter of northern Christians, IPOB youths and Shiite Muslims?
Has he forgotten about the genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Fulani terrorists and herdsmen? Has he forgotten about the attack against the Church and the undermining of Christendom?
Has he forgotten about the censorship of the media and how newspapers houses and radio and television stations are warned against airing or publishing anti-government material?
Has he forgotten about Buhari’s insidious secret romance with Boko Haram and how he has strengthened them in the last two years by freeinf their commanders and paying them huge and inprecedented ransoms?
Has he forgotten the appauling way that members of our Armed Forces are being treated by the government and how they are massacred on the front lines and given secret mass burials with no honor or thanks?
Has he forgotten about the brutal assault on the judiciary and judges and the undermining of the rule of law? Has he forgotten about the relentless attacks on the legislature and the humiliation of his colleagues at the National Assembly?
Has he forgotten about the horrors and wickedness that members and leaders of the opposition PDP were subjected to over the last 3 years? Has he forgotten about what the Govermment did to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Sheik El Zak Zaky and Col. Ibrahim Dasuki?
Has he forgotten the vitriolic terms and words that they used to describe President Goodluck Jonathan, President Olusegun Obasanjo and every single PDP leader and government that held power between 1999 to 2015?
Has he forgotten that Buhari considers himself to be the third and final Mahdi of the north and that he has nothing but contempt and disdain for those that come from the Middle Belt and the south and those that do not share his religious faith?
Has he forgotten the insults the Buhari government heaped on southerners, Middle Belters, Afenifere, Ohaeneze, the Niger Delta Elders, the Middle Belt Forum and every single elderstatesman and leader that has called for the restructuring of our country.
Has he forgotten about the division, strife, disgrace, penury, corruption, poverty and despair that they subjected the Nigerian people to over the last three years.
Has he forgotten what Christians have been subjected to by these demons from hell? Has he forgotten their hatred for the Church? Has he forgotten the division, strife, turmoil, bloodshed, torment and havoc that they have inflicted on our nation?
Has Akpabio forgotten about all these things or is that he is so tormented by the fear of his own shadow, the EFCC and Buhari’s ghost that he has capitulated like a fatherless peasant that lacks nobility, class, dignity, self-respect, good-breeding and honor?
On a general note one is constrained to ask: why are most Nigerian leaders plagued with such a cowardly disposition and spirit? Why do they compromise so often and why do they tremble before power?
If Akpabio had issues with PDP that is fair enough. We all have issues with the party in varying degrees.
Yet if he felt constrained to leave why can’t he join any of the other numerous opposition parties? Why does he have to sell his soul to the devil and enter a Faustian pact with Buhari and the APC. Why should he join the birds of prey to feed on the blood, flesh and guts of the Nigerian people?
He has betrayed his people and joined forces with those that seek to enslave them simply in an attempt to secure freedom and goodwill for himself. Is that what leaders are meant to do? Are they meant to give in to their most morbid and irrational fears and collaborate with those that seek to destroy their nation and their future?
Akpabio reminds me of the old African chiefs and traditional rulers that sold their own people into slavery to the white slave dealers of old in return for tiny crumbs and protection.
He reminds me of the black slaves that fought on the side of the southern secessionist forces in the American civil war who attempted to preserve the institution of slavery.
He reminds me of the inglorious Scottish clans that turned their backs on Scotland’s heroic Bonny Prince Charlie and instead betrayed their people and fought on the side of the English to oppose Scottish emancipation and liberation.
He reminds me of everything that is unpleasant, servile, weak, ugly, uncouth, cowardly and dishonorable.
The bitter truth is that Akpabio deserves to be pitied. He is more worthy of pathos than wrath because, like Judas Iscariot and those that betrayed and crucified Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, he “knows not what he does”.
Shakespeare wrote that “a coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.”
Soyinka wrote that “the man died in him who remained silent before tyranny”.
Courage, risk and sacrifice are the fuel and engine room of the struggle for our liberation. I would rather live as a free man for one day than live a thousand years as a coward and a slave.
May God guide my friend and brother Godswill Akpabio and may He open his eyes and cause him to appreciate the folly of his own actions and the very grave consequences of the monumental mistake he is about to make.
May He remind him that the forces of darkness have nothing to offer but death, sorrow, shame and destruction.
May He remind him that no matter how dark the night, joy comes in the morning for those who have faith, who trust in the Lord and who stand firm till the end.
May He remind him that those that joined Adolf Hitler, even in his last days, ended up dying with him”.- Olufemi Olu-Kayode
HAPPY NEW WEEK

Akpabio sent Assassins to kill me, Akwa Ibom Speaker Onofiok Luke insist
Akpabio sent Assassins to kill me, Akwa Ibom Speaker Onofiok Luke insist.
…. Akpabio reacts
Akwa Ibom State Speaker, Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke while addressing women of the state yesterday who where protesting the one sided action of the state police Commissioner alleged that Senator Godswill Akpabio sent some persons to assassinate him.
“Senator Akpabio sent some persons to assassinate me yesterday, so if anything happens to me hold him responsible”.
But in a swift response, Senator Godswill Akpabio reacted through his media assistant Anietie Ekong, saying Senator Akpabio has no interest in the killing Onofiok Luke or any other Akwa Ibom person.
“For the avoidance of doubt we wish to state categorically that Senator Akpabio has not sent anyone to assassinate Hon Luke. He has no reason nor motivation to do so. The Senator will never subscribe to any plot to eliminate any Akwa Ibom son or any human being for that matter, let alone Onofiok Luke who had served him as his Personal Assistant while he was the Governor of Akwa Ibom State.” part of the statement reads.
But the Hon. Kufre Okon, Chief Press Secretary to Rt. Onofiok Luke in a statement title” There is no hiding place for Senator Godswill Akpabio ” knocks the former Governor.
We have read Anietie Ekong’s futile attempt at disentangling Senator Godswill Akpabio from the net and web of his evil conspiracy against the person of Rt. Hon (Barr) Onofiok Luke and the Office of the Speaker of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly. Just like in real life, the more Senator Akpabio tries to disentangle himself, the more the net of his ungodly plans draws him in. His penchant for playing ostrich is common knowledge, but like the ostrich, he is the only one who doesn’t know that the world has a gracious view of his backside.
By this press statement where Sen. Godswill Akpabio refuses to address the Right Honourable Speaker by his office, rather addressing him as the member representing Nsit Ubium state constituency, he has clearly shown the world that his hands are actively in the plot to destabilize the state assembly. But this hatred for Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke as Speaker is neither new nor strange, after all in June 2015, the same Akpabio did everything within and in fact beyond his powers, to stop the emergence of Rt. Hon. Luke as Speaker. He took away the clerk of the House, seized the mace, intimidated honourable members and stalled the process of proclaiming the assembly on time. Akpabio may have in his usual style chosen to suffer selective amnesia, but Akwa Ibom people and PDP faithful remember the near Golgotha experience that Rt. Hon Luke passed through to get the ticket of the PDP for a second term. Akpabio it was who funded the opposition that the speaker faced during his re-election bid and even wrote off Nsit Ubium during the elections refusing to offer any financial support for the elections as the party leader then. He even stopped the party’s financial assistance to Nsit Ubium.
As history bears testimony, God has always been on the side of Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke. He won the nomination against Akpabio’s schemes, still emerged as the Speaker against his devious plans and has remained till date the speaker of the State Assembly and by the grace of God Almighty will remain so till the end of this legislative tenure, whether Akpabio likes it or not . What the former Governor hasn’t told his aides is the reason for his annoyance with the Speaker. The latter has simply opposed the inordinate ambition of the former of claiming to be the Tinubu of Akwa Ibom state, and being the alpha and omega of the state.
May we reiterate that the Honourable Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr. Onofiok Luke stands by his earlier statement on the sponsored assassination attempt on him by Senator Akpabio and at the appropriate time, will take necessary actions. The world should know that if anything untoward happens to the Speaker, Senator Akpabio and his wife should be held responsible.
We deeply sympathize with the plenty refusals Anietie Ekong and co have had to issue due to the meddlesome nature of their principal. As much as we empathize with them, we are aware that the earn their keep there.
As the days pass by, we are certain that opportunities will avail itself for us to illuminate some dark sides to the main reasons fueling the current political war in our state.
Anietie it may interest you to know that Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke knows Sen. Akpabio very well and Sen. Akpabio equally knows Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke well.
Press Secretary to the Honourable Speaker
Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly
TROUBLE FOR AKWA IBOM APC GUBER CANDIDATE OVER CAR THEFT AND MURDER
TROUBLE FOR AKWA IBOM APC GUBER CANDIDATE OVER CAR THEFT AND MURDER
•••TWO SUSPECTS NABBED BY POLICE
Two suspects are currently singing in police custody, after being arrested in possession of a stolen car presented to them by the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Akwa Ibom State.
Our reporter gathered that the suspected stolen SUV, a 2010 Honda CRV, which was branded with campaign posters of the governorship candidate, Mr. Nsima Ekere, was a product of a deadly serial robbery operation that cost the lives of many including that of the owner in far away Oyo State.
The car was allegedly presented to the suspects by the APC house of Representatives flagbearer for Ikono/Ini Federal constituency, Barr Edidiong Idiong. Preliminary information available from the Oyo state Anti Robbery Squad reveals that the owner of the vehicle was among those murdered in an armed robbery attack at Oyo state.
The vehicle was subsequently brought and presented to Mr Etop Akpan Ezekiel, nicknamed ‘Black’ from Ikpe Ward 2 in Ini local government area by the APC stalwarts as a bait to lure him into their party. Revelations from men of the police force contained that on the day of this occurrence, 3 robbery attacks were recorded within the vicinity where all the 3 owners of the vehicles were gunned down, while the robbers took off with their vehicles.
The leader of the police crack team that invaded Akwa Ibom state in search of the stolen vehicles disclosed that the hunt for the other two vehicles are still on, “now that we’ve been able to track this very one and have gotten it, we will now channel our energies and commit our resources into finding the other remaining two vehicles, and believe you me, all the culprits will be caught and brought to book,” he said.
Investigations so far reveals that some personal effects of the deceased lady who was the original owner of the vehicle like ID card, complimentary cards e.t.c are still in the car and so far, Oyo state Police Command in conjunction with the Police authorities in Ikot Ekpene, have taken custody of the vehicle.
THE ARREST AT A POPULAR IKOT EKPENE RESORT!!!
It is undoubtedly and legally known that Macaire resort provides hospitality services where a lot of people can access with ease. Mr Etop Akpan Ezekiel (Black) had on the morning of 23rd November, driven the said car that was given to him by the APC to a popular hospitality resort on Ikot Ekpene, for relaxation when the crack team incidentally arrived Akwa Ibom state on intelligence.
They traced the car to that resort and black sensing unusual moves and questions about the car absconded with the help of a certain Oscar his friend aiding him to flee the premises. As the police then lay siege on the building mounting surveillance on the car. The siege lasted till the next day being Saturday as the police kept vigil on the car which carried campaign stickers of Mr Nsima Ekere as well as APC insignia.
As envisaged, one Mr Isreal Ufia, who was contracted by Mr Black to come and ferry home the car was apprehended by the police. Meanwhile, Black who oned at the primary school Uruk Uso in wait for Mr Israel, kept on calling Israel on phone to know if he had succeeded in driving the car out from the resort. Black however sensed trouble following Israel’s the tenor of response and escaped leaving Israel’s Camry car with a girl who was with them. So far, two suspects have been arrested including the wife of an APC youth leader who is also an officer of the Nigerian police force.

They added ” Their plans are to rig the elections like they did in Ekiti state since they have federal might ( Police force, DSS, Army & Civil Defence in their pockets.) This is so because, they have boosted that INEC is in their pockets and that they will change all the INEC staff in Akwa Ibom State and bring in those that will help them rig the 2019 elections.”
