AKWA IBOM GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL SPEAKS ON IBOM AIR BEGINNING OPERATIONS

The Commissioner for Special Duties and Aviation Development Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Akan Okon has disclosed that the State owned airline, Ibom air will kick start operations this month.

The Commissioner who made the disclosure today when he took members of Foreign Services Academy on an inspection tour of the Obong Victor Attah Intl. Airport said the state government had met all requirements for the newly acquired airplanes to start operations.

“The State Government has put all the necessary finishing touches for the airlines to start operations. We are only waiting for the regulatory body to finish its own part of the process and we are good to go”, he said

Mr. Okon also seized the opportunity to call on the Federal Government to support the growth and further development of the airport since its a national asset that contributes to the growth of the Nation. Furthermore, he reiterated the fact that the airport is hundred percent built and managed by the Akwa Ibom State Government.

While showing members of the Academy round the second runway currently under construction, the Special Duties and Aviation Commissioner explained that the second taxi way was necessitated to provide an alternative take off point in cases of maintainance.

This he said would forestall the incidence in Abuja where the Nnamdi Azikiwe Intl.Airport was shut down during maintainance operations. He therefore commended Governor Udom Emmanuel for thinking it wise to undertake the second runway project.

What Will Happen To Akpabio If He Decamps To APC -Reno Omokri Reveals

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has said that former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Senator Godswill Akpabio, will have all his sins forgiven if he decamps to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to Akpabio’s visit to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, Omokri said in a tweet, that even the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), will “pass over” him.

“Behold Akpabio, all your sins have been forgiven. When @officialEFCC sees the broom, EFCC will Passover!” he wrote.

Akpabio, who won his seat in the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is believed to be set to decamp to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The lawmaker’s meeting with Buhari came after the President’s Special Assistant on Prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla’s post on Facebook on Saturday night.

Obono-Obla stated that Akpabio will be received into APC on Thursday by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and other top leaders of the party at a rally in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State.

Ikot Abasi stands still for Kufre Ufot as Edemeya insist on AKHA

By Kenneth Jude

The people of Edemeya have made a case for the House of Assembly ahead of 2019 following what they described as the marginalisation of the area in the scheme of things.

This is even as the House of Assembly aspirant for Ikot Abasi/Eastern Obolo State Constituency in 2019, Elder Kufre Ufot consulted Edemeya community on Monday.

Addressing the people at Edemeya Unity Hall, the renowned Estate Surveyor urged the people of Edemeya to stand firm for justice and avoid the temptation of selling their right for a mess of pottage.

The Estate Surveyor described such politics as that of Esau, stressing that such politics will be detrimental to the overall development of Edemeya and its people.

Elder Ufot pledged to embark on job creation that will make the youths have a sustainable means of livelihood. Rather than giving them fish, he promised to teach them how to fish so that they’ll not only be self-sufficient but also empower others.
He described Edemeya as major stakeholders in the politics of Ikot Abasi hence should use their numbers widely in order to fast track the development of the community.

Hon. Ufot reeled out the zoning arrangement of the area over the years, noting that it is the turn of Edemeya to produce the next lawmaker for the constituency.

He called on the people not to allow political parties destroy the bond of unity that exist in Edemeya, adding that “political parties will come and go, but the community will remain.”

He urged the people to get their PVCs as that’s the tool they’ll use to cast their votes in 2019. He decried the shabby manner women are treated whereby rappers are handed to them with much fanfare, pointing out women deserve more than that. “It’s shameful,” he said.

He promised to hold constituency briefing twice a year, stressing that if elected, he’ll protect their interest at all times and attract quality projects to the area that will enhance the lives of the people.

Responding, former Councillor and current Vice Chairman l, Mboho Edemeya, Hon. Friday Jonathan urged the people of Edemeya to support Elder Ufot’s ambition, adding that he’s their son hence should be supported to succeed by all well meaning sons and daughters of the area.

On his part, the Chairman of the State Council of Chiefs, Eteidung James Aniema, called on elders, women and the youths to stand by the aspirant. He described him as a giver who does not care where one comes from. “I know him to be a giver. And I assure you that with him as our representative, we have nothing to fear. He’ll change our fortunes.” He noted that for over twenty years, Edemeya has not produced a legislator, stressing that the time is ripe to correct the anomaly.

Former vice Chairman of Ikot Abasi local government area, Obong Aniefiok Brown, said he has rejected monetary inducement in order to stand for what is fair and just. He stated that Edemeya people are earnestly yearning for the House of Assembly Seat, adding that those saying that only a second termer can becoming a ranking member in the legislature miss the point.

He noted that what makes one a ranking member is the person’s ability to acquit himself well and have a good working relationship with his colleagues in the House.
He appealed to the people not to allow ephemeral desires affect their long term gains.
“Don’t allow hunger to make you sell your right. Stand for justice. I play politics of truth and nothing else,” he stated.

Obong Aniefiok Brown, former vice chair, Ikot Abasi: we’ve rejected money because we need our man to go. Edemeya has nothing. They should tell us our interest in 2019. I’ve searched myself and I know o have my integrity intact. I won’t sell edemeya interest. Edemeya needs House of Assembly Seat. Says what gives u a ranking position is how u acquit yourself in the House. Don’t deceive is with news of ranking member for second term. Let’s stand with Kufre Ufot. Don’t allow hunger to make u sell your right. I play politics of truth and nothing else.

The youth leader of Edemeya, Mr. Friday Ibuot, noted that the aspirant will make the people happy especially the youths if elected as lawmaker. He spoke about how Hon. Ufot supported him when he had a Challenge while in the Polytechnic. He described him as one that has the interest of Edemeya at heart. Ibuot called on youths and indeed all Edemya indegines to stand by Elder Ufot Abd give him their maximum support. “Preach the gospel of Elder Kufre Ufot wherever you go. Stand for your right,” he said.
