THE FOLLY OF A DROP-OUT AND KLEPTOMANIAC CALLED ANIEKEME FINBARR. BY BASSEY ABIA ASSAM

There are times when you hold your breath, bury yourself in silent hopes and fervently mutter some sincere prayers that a young man will resist the youthful nudge to exhibit the same folly and vainglory exhibited by “Nza the bird” which the popular Igbo proverb as captured in Chinua
Achebe’s bestseller, Things Fall Apart, says made the grave mistake of overestimating himself after a
heavy meal, that he had to challenge his Chi (god) to fight.

But then, being well-fed comes with the illusory temptation of dwelling within the precipice of self- magnification, so one could excuse the acts that are fuelled by such state of being.

ASSAM ASSAM: THE BURDEN OF A DROWNING POLITICIAN By Aniekeme Finbarr


 ASSAM ASSAM: THE BURDEN OF A DROWNING POLITICIAN By Aniekeme Finbarr
Chief Assam Ekanem Assam SAN is a study in political inconsistency. His condition has become very peculiar that even his good morning greetings require the receiver's verification before reply.

But since he is an intelligent man, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, there are still a few unsuspecting members of the public who are tempted to take him seriously when he puts his fingers on the keyboard to write a petition and or an open letter.

Dear Chief Assam,

RE: THREAT BY GOVERNOR GODSWILL AKPABIO TO ASSASSINATE POLITICAL OPPONENTS

We are in receipt of your letter dated July 22, 2014 on the above subject matter. We observed with utter dismay its inciting contents and the consequent wide publication of the letter in the press and in the Internet for apparent selfish political motives.

Hoodlums attack ACA in Itu * MacJoe fingered

Hoodlums attack ACA in Itu  * MacJoe fingered
Vexed by what many has been describing as his inability to control the Itu Local Government political bloc despite being the council Chairman, Michael James Etim has been accussed of sponsoring political thugs and hoodlums to unleash mayhem against the SSG Udom Emmanuel’s political group, the Akwa Ibom Consolidation Alliance last Monday in Itu Local Government Area.

The boys numbering more than hundreds are said to have first of all attempted to invade the council secretariat venue of the Itu chapter inauguration of ACA but were repelled by a combined team of security operatives and some agile men from the Alliance group at Mbak. The inauguration however went on successfully amidst pomp and pageantry.

Introduction
I want to welcome you very warmly to this interactive session; I can see you are trying to make it look very formal meaning that you have changed the format of this interactive session. I thought that we should call you this evening so that I can personally say thank you to you all. The last time we had a meeting like this, I was still the Secretary to the state government and that was sometime in 2013. And I had also called you to request you to support the administration in terms of reporting the policies and programmes of the administration. 

Today as Chief Ita Awak pointed out it is almost one year since I left office. Many of you, I don’t know where you have disappeared to maybe you are part of ACA- Akwa Ibom Cunny Arrangement (laughs). But I am so happy to see your faces today. And I belief we will have a very interesting interactive session. I am not going to be the only one to talk; I will also like to listen to you. I am sure there are many questions you may want to ask us and there are some questions we may want to ask some of you specially my friends from THE INK and Radar.

When I first heard the story from those who attended the event, my immediate reaction was that of utter disbelief. I disbelieved because I found it extremely difficult to imagine that a sane and emotionally stable person holding such an exalted office could descend to the level of venting such mutinous and reckless statements.

However, when I read the full text of the speech in the print and social media, I was filled with horror, mixed with utter disgust, that the governor of my Akwa Ibom State, His Excellency, Chief Godswill Akpabio, CON, could make such irresponsible public pronouncements, even before the National Chairman of the PDP who visited Uyo for the ground-breaking ceremony of the Akwa Ibom PDP chapter secretariat on Wednesday, 16th July 2014.

There is serious work currently going on in a place called Shelter Afrique to complete a mind blowing mansion worth over N500 million for Gov Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State. The mansion which is being constructed by a company owned by an Edo man is going to be the best in the area when completed

Though the company has been charged to make it a top secret, I authoritatively learnt that directive is to deliver the job before the end of 2014. While the state residents groan in pain on how their commonwealth is being squandered by Akpabio and his cronies, he has also erected an estate in Shelter Afrique alongside his wife.

I WILL KILL ALL OF YOU – GODSWILL AKPABIO OR CALIGULA
BEFORE THAT CAME THE VOICE: “KILL THEM ALL!”
THEN JEHOZADAK CAME BACK AND ASK THE NAMELESS JEWISH HEROD:
HOW ABOUT THE FEMALE CHILDREN? “KILL THEM ALL” HE SHOUTED.
AGAIN, HE CAME BACK TO INQUIRE: “FROM WHAT AGE, MY LORD?
“FROM TWO, THREE YEARS TO A DAY-OLD, KILL THEM ALL”.

Nigeria would have been in turmoil if Buhari was killed- Jonathan

Nigeria would have been in turmoil if Buhari was killed- Jonathan
President Goodluck Jonathan (right) and Former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari at a federal government programme.

President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday said the country would have been in turmoil if former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari and top Islamic preacher, Sheik Dahiru Bauchi have been killed in the recent terrorists attack in Kaduna.

The duo last Wednesday escaped assassination when the Islamic sect, Boko Haram detonated twin bombs in Kaduna State.

Jonathan spoke while receiving muslim leaders in the Federal Capital Territory on 2014 Eid-el-Fitri Sallah homage at the Presidential Villa.

“You can imagine if these two people had died in those attacks. Shiek Bauchi is one of our top Islamic preachers, he has millions of followers, Buhari former Head of State, a leading political figure has massive supporters.

“On the same day people wanted to kill them‎, those who plan the attacks are clearly sons of the devil. Because if they had killed these two people we wouldn’t have been here today, this country would have been in tumoil, we couldn’t have gathered here to celebrate.

“We thank Allah for saving their lives and preventing a major calamity that would have befallen our country. I use this opportunity to call on all Nigerians to work with govt to see that collectively we bring to an end the excesses of Boko haram and other terrorist groups. We are doing everything humanly possible to end it,” Jonathan stated.

Noting that the major news around the globe are always about conflicts and deaths, the President who said he fasted during the month of Ramadan, said that the fasting period is time to reflect and time to be our neighbour’s keepers.

He condoled with to the families of those who died in the attacks and those injured and appealed to clerics in the country when preaching to their followers to always preach peace and unity and not the gospel of hate.

According, to him, Nigeria cannot develop without peace and unity.
“In a conflict situation people move away from such zones and we cannot develop our communities, our local governments, states and our country in a conflict situation, ” the President said

…BETWEEN WHITE BOM BOM (ALBINO) AND ROBINSON UWAK.

If white Bom Bom was born in the early Eighteen Century, I bet you he would have been killed because it was a taboo for Albino children to find their way into the Nigerian society. His brand was perceived as ghost and ‘ogbanje’ by our forefathers, who in most cases killed both the child and the parents.

It appears that, our forefathers knew albinos to be lawless, demonic, prone to vomiting vulgar words to their leaders and jumping from one political camp to another, hence the reason why the sent them to early grave.

The Shame Called Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation By Inibehe Effiong

A friend and comrade brother, Franklyn Isong, recently expressed his displeasure and frustration with the government owned, censored and controlled Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation (AKBC), I can understand his grudge not just as a celebrated journalist but as a publisher of one of the leading newspapers in Akwa Ibom State who understands the sacred role of the media in the society as enshrined in Section 22 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).

But then, his view is not novel. In an article I wrote sometime ago, I had articulated some of the things I would do if someday I get elected as governor of my state, I had said among other things, and I repeat; that I will privatise the AKBC which has become Akpabio Broadcasting Corporation.

It is almost one year now since Udom Gabriel Emmanuel assumed office as Secretary to the Akwa Ibom Government (SSG) and his approval rating is soaring. His impressive credentials as an accomplished banker stand him head and shoulder above his opponents. Udom who, until his resumption as SSG, was hardly known outside the banking sector where he had distinguished himself and had risen to the position of director at Zenith bank Plc has today become a house-hold name in Akwa Ibom State.
