Senator Helen Esuene reacts to Akpabio’s defection
Senator Helen Esuene, a former National Assembly member for Eket Senatorial District and ex-Minister for Environment has reacted to the defection of Senator Godswill Akpabio to the All Progressives Congress.
Using a biblical perspective to drive her point, she attributed the defection of Senator Akpabio to the story of Jonah in the Bible.
Giving her remarks during the solidarity visit of Eket Senatorial District Leaders on Governor Udom Emmanuel in Government House,Uyo, She said
“Your Excellency, according to that story in the Holy Bible, when there was turbulence on the high sea, one thing that we must note is that it was not the people on the boat that decided to throw out Jonah, it was Jonah himself that went to them and requested to be thrown out of the ship so that there could be peace. Our dear Governor, we want to assure you that the decision of your predecessor to leave on his own without any justifiable reason, could only have been the Divine will of God for our state to move forward.”
