YOU HATE UDOM AT YOUR OWN PERIL: THE MAN IS IN A WORLD OF HIS OWN

The Supreme Court judgment of February 3rd, 2016 will ever remain a reference point to the parameter dynamics and template for the definition of justice. The affirmative judgment put paid to over seven months of lies, blasphemy, blackmail and manufacturing of falsehood against the enviable person of the carrier of the Divine Mandate – Udom Gabriel Emmanuel, the Judiciary confirmed Governor of Akwa Ibom State. These negative image-painting was piloted by the aggrieved and vindictive bunch of rascals parading as the All Progressives Congress {APC} in Akwa Ibom State.
If I have an opportunity to nominate someone to fill a vacancy position in heaven, this man that waded into the solution of salvaging Akwa Ibom people from the hands of fast heist merchants and resource suckers is worthy of the choice. The oracle of justice, a true father, a man of God, a fearless man, a courageous leader and man at variance with bloodshed, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Mahmud Mohammed (GCON) came to the rescue. The Supreme Court judgment signed, sealed and redefined the hasty rape on the nation’s judiciary by partisan, corrupt and greedy judges who administered the Akwa Ibom election petition against Governor Udom Emmanuel arising from his landmark divine victory during the April 11, 2015 general elections.
The apex court judgment substantiates the Divine Mandate from our standpoint, representing the free-will of the majority of Akwa Ibom people who overwhelmingly, totally and whole-heartedly invested their hopes and trust in Governor Udom Emmanuel to pilot the affairs of Akwa Abasi Ibom State for the next four years and possibly beyond by the grace of God. The mandate was huge and represents the true wishes and hopes and aspirations of the plurality of the entire Akwa Ibom people. Since Udom’s emergence as Governor, he has always stated that as the symbol of that mandate, he will legally defend it on behalf of the people who gave him the mandate in the first place.
On equitable consideration of moving the seat of power in favour of all the three senatorial districts, Akwa Ibom people cast their political lot and fortunes with Eket Senatorial District and massively voted a proud son of the district – an accomplished financial services expert who had risen to the enviable position of Executive Director of Zenith Bank; a man of integrity, God fearing, humble, a servant leader and de-tribalized Nigerian – Udom Emmanuel as their Governor.
Therefore the pitiable resort to desperate measures of cheap blackmail, falsehood and constant odious advertorial to tarnish the hard-earned image of our dear leader became one of the worse and dreaded political campaigns ever manned by an opposition in this part of the clime. What has been the case and bitter pill so difficult to swallow is that for the past eight months of these legal battles ignited by a bunch of self-seeking fellows who are bent on filling their own pockets to the detriment of Akwa Ibom people have grounded the state’s progress to almost a still halt.
Politics should not be played in this manner; politics should be seen for the cultivation of enabling and vibrant ideals. Manufacturing lies, peddling falsehood and engaging in subterfuge just to score political points should be condemned by all right-thinking persons. Politics should be about ideas, about walking away from conventional wisdom and moving people in a critical mass to realize their potentials and have more faith in government’s capacity to do good. The institutions of governance – the Executive, the Legislature and Judiciary should be respected and held in the most profound and high esteem.
A closer look and x-ray on Governor Udom Emmanuel unveils the lofty and quality-drive brand of politics he practices. He has in all his outings asked the people to pray for the success of the Nigerian state and her leaders. Politics to the governor is not a do-or-die affair and neither a zero-sum game but ultimately an enterprise where those whom the gods have called and invested power with must discharge that ‘divine mandate’ and imbue in the people that ‘Can-do spirit’. The governor is always motivated and grounded by this endearing concept of politics and governance.
Therefore, the Supreme Court judgment has nailed the coffin of most ill-willed political adventurers and Governor Udom Emmanual has been JUDICIARY CONFIRMED.
