...describes Minister's stay in APC as bad omen
There seems to be no end in sight to the current rift hitting hard on the All Progressives Congress, Akwa Ibom State Chapter.
A Party Chieftain and President, All Progressives Elders Forum, Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, Elder Ifiok Udosen, who confirmed to this reporter the two week-squabble and fights over the political leadership seat of the party, disclosed that the root of the internal crack in the party is the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, God'swill Akpabio.
He expressed pessimism over peace returning to the party any time soon, explaining that Akpabio, who just joined the party at the wee of the day, is out to highjack the entire party structure and turn the men in the party into his little boys.
Akpabio's move, he claimed has not gone down well with the stronghold of the party in the likes of Udoedeghe, Umana Umana who kept the party in the State intact and afloat during his sojourn in PDP. He said Akpabio must immediately retrace his steps to bring back the needed transquility enjoyed in the party prior to his defection.
He described Akpabio's stay in the party as a bad omen, referencing the scenario that played out during the 2019 election as a case in point. He said in 2019 during Akpabio who has always popped up his political shoulders had assumed the position of the eye of the party and king maker yet rather than things to fall in place, he ended up launching the party into defeat.
Udosen stressed that the party cannot allow him even parade a political leader because he'll rain doom for the party.
Meanwhile the social media space has been awash with counter accusation alleging Udoedeghe, Umana, and other reputable APC stakeholders of working for the PDP.
Another chieftain of the party who pleaded anonymity when he spoke with this reporter on the accusations levelled against the stakeholders, said the accusation can only be handiworks of Akpabio's e-boys who are out to spew lies against the innocent stakeholders in order to garner stipends from their paymaster.
The chieftain noted that many innocent individuals have been dragged into the said report which he described as falsely written by a certain Iniobong John and published by opera news.
