Dear Godswill Akpabio, Now That Your Body Is With Ekere, Is Your Heart With Gov. Udom?

“Loyalty is hard to find. Trust is easy to lose, actions speak louder than words.”-Anonymous History will someday remember Akpabio as a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, who had the opportunity to write his name on gold, but botched the opportunity. It is disheartening to see a former Governor talk so loquaciously, dishing out lies to the public with reckless abandon. I recollect that, in 2015, while we mounted an intense campaign for Buhari to emerge as Nigeria’s President, Akpabio was sabotaging our efforts with…

NDDC: Making A Paradigm Shift From The Old

It is good for leaders to be provoked once in a while or as the need arises. But only provocation that is informed by necessities should be encouraged. The type that is spurred by hate or any kind of ulterior motives is usually counter-productive and against the grains of a common goal. Such is retrogressive and self-destruct. The provocation that is required to change Nigeria for the better is the type that is motivational and instigates courage. It is the type that makes the highest mountain become an anthill. The…
