The 2017 birthday celebration of the 6th speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt Hon (Barr) Onofiok Luke ended with a plea to all Akwa Ibomites especially the youths to desist from any criminal activity that will soil their record before the security agencies and the government. The speaker made this appeal at Tilapia Island Resort, Abak where his birthday celebration was hosted on his behalf by his friends and associates.
Addressing the crowd that witnessed his birthday celebration, he says “I plead with you to put an end to any criminal act that will not give you good name before the security men, let me inform you that the state government frown at any person or persons that try to destabilize the peace we are enjoying in this state and the security men are on ground to deal with any culprit found breaking any law in state, we don’t want to miss any Akwa Ibomite, please if you have any critical issue bring it to the round table discussion, we will listen to you in earnest rather than taking law into your hands, the new commissioner of police frown at that seriously and he reliably inform us that his command will not treat such case flippantly.
The speaker unveil to the public how God used Sen Godswill Akpabio to project him to the lamb line of Akwa Ibom politics and today he is the number three man in the state through God’s special favour “I say may God bless His Excellency Sen Godswill Obot Akpabio, CON, Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, I heard you have endorsed him for second term, he is a good man, if he asks for more, give him” he admonished.
He further said “I am working under someone and my responsibility as honourable and the speaker is to galvanize support for His Excellency to deliver the dividend of democracy and we are supporting him for 8 years, a man standing here before you today, all were not so easy for me because I passed through tunnel and niche of the world but I was focus, go to my local government and ask who my father was? my father had no name in my local government, he departed this mortality when I was in JSS1, it was my mother who took care of us, I didn’t go round drinking to be want I am today, for you to be leader tomorrow, you need to take your studies seriously because this will enable you to dine with prince and kings”.
