The Campaign spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, THIS, in Akwa Ibom state, Hon. Eseme Eyiboh has described the particular much-celebrated peace slogan by the local government as an illusion.
He or she added that it was quite deceptive for the state government to claim that every is well in the state during the midst of glaring safety challenges ravaging Akwa Ibom condition.
Eyiboh, who is furthermore the Chairman of Cross Water Basin Development Authority, disclosed this particular on Wednesday when he had been hosted in a radio programme on the Inspiration FM, Uyo.
According to him, “ there’ t no peace in the state, since celebrated by the ruling party, PDP. It is farcical of the state government in order to claim it has brought peace towards the state despite obvious security difficulties. ”
He contended that normalcy and peace never have yet returned to crisis-ridden Ukanafun and Etim Ekpo councils from the state as claimed by the local government.
“ As we speak, Ukanafun local government council secretariat is still below lock and key.
“ Work at the council secretariat has come to a standstill. Some aggrieved young ones went and terrorised staffers associated with Etim Ekpo local government council a few months ago.
“ If there is peace, why is Ukanafun county council being administered from outside of the area? Why is Ukanafun High Courtroom seated in Abak? It means an unhealthy person from Ukanafun seeking proper rights has to go to Abak.
“ I know there is no peace internationally, but the state government has not shown solid resolve to nail the problems in the bud.
“ The governor should not come to the general public to tell the people that there is peace within the state. If there is peace, why had been Mfon Udeme, former aide towards the governor shot? Why was Nsima Ekere the APC governorship applicant attacked in his house? If there is serenity, why do we have this welter of security flashes in the condition? The architecture of peace within the state has deteriorated, ” this individual said.
The speaker, who was enunciating the campaign plan of Nsima Ekere, the THIS governorship candidate in the state upon security and social protection, stated “ I am sure you are aware that will in some local government areas in the condition, there is no peace. In short, people are not really living there. Even when government is certainly coming out with a confession that there is rehab, there is rehabilitation because there was turmoil.
“ For more compared to three years, some communities in Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun local government places were embroiled in cult-war that will metamorphosed into killings, rapes plus kidnapping of innocent people along with closure of many churches, public universities, health institutions and markets. ”
Speaking on young ones who laid down their hands in the state, Eyiboh said; “ Go and see the youths who also laid down arms. As the beneficiaries of the programme, they are not enjoying this. Government should show clear path, responsibility, capacity and willingness within handling the issue instead of dilly-dallying. ”
On allegation that this rehabilitation has turned many in order to merchants, Eyiboh said, “ Within Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun, you might have heard about the Debam cult. The particular rehabilitation is like the issue of defection. It is often turned to instrument of merchandising – you have merchants of defection plus merchants of rehabilitation. ”
