OPPOSITION PARTY FINALLY READY TO WIN IN AKWA IBOM STATE ~ Aniekan Udosen

13th September 2018

In Akwa Ibom State, no leading opposition party since 1999 to 2017 (18 years) had ever followed the mindset of the people in the choice of governorship candidate and this is mainly the reason why opposition party never won any of the 5 governorship elections (1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015).

In 1999 PDP won governorship election because the party understandably followed the people’s mindset courtesy of the Don Etiebet led agenda setting which favoured Uyo Senatorial District by nominating Obong Victor Attah instead of Chief Benjamin Okoko of Eket Senatorial District while the then leading opposition party APP lost the governorship election because APP went against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people and nominated Obong Akpan Isemin of blessed memory from Uyo Senatorial District but repeated Etinan instead of Uyo Federal Constituency.

In 2003 PDP consolidated and won governorship election because the party for the second time followed the people’s established mindset which favoured Uyo Senatorial District by renominating Obong Victor Attah while the then leading opposition party ANPP lost the governorship election because ANPP went against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people and nominated Dr Ime Umana of blessed memory from Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district.

In 2007 PDP expectedly won governorship election because the party as usual followed the people’s mindset which then favoured Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District by nominating Chief Godswill Akpabio while the then leading opposition party AC lost the governorship election because AC went against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people and nominated Mr James Iniama from Uyo Senatorial District.

In 2011 PDP as usual won governorship election because the party as a tradition followed the people’s mindset which for the second time favoured Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District by renominating Chief Godswill Akpabio while the then leading opposition party ACN lost the governorship election because ACN went against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people and nominated Sen (Dr) John Udoedeghe from Uyo Senatorial District.

In 2015 PDP miraculously won the governorship election because the Akpabio led party followed the people’s mindset which favoured for the first time since 1999 Eket Senatorial District by almost singlehandedly nominating Deac Udom Emmanuel while APC the leading opposition party unbelieveably, even at apex court lost the governorship “selection” because APC went against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people and nominated Mr Umana Umana from Uyo Senatorial district. Politics is physical, spiritual and the people’s mindset is sacrosanct.

In 2019 and after 20 years of losses, can APC the leading opposition party make the difference by winning governorship election in Akwa Ibom State?

Yes, APC can win the 2019 governorship election if it follows the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people by nominating a governorship candidate from Eket Senatorial District because in Akwa Ibom democracy, no political party is supreme to the mindset of the people.

Yes, APC can win the 2019 governorship election if it goes to the election as APC (ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS) because no leading opposition party had participated in any governorship election a second time since 1999 (1999 APP, 2003 ANPP, 2007 AC, 2011 ACN, 2015 APC).

As an experienced political party, PDP is directly or indirectly, openly or secretly fighting in favour of APC governorship aspirants from Uyo Senatorial District understanding that any APC candidate from Uyo Senatorial District will be “CARRY GO FOR PDP”.

But if in 2019 APC goes against the mindset of Akwa Ibom State people by nominating a candidate from Uyo or Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District instead of Eket Senatorial District, the party could woefully lose the 2019 governorship election no matter the “Federal might”, that would be the very end of APC in Akwa Ibom State because same strategy cannot give different result irrespective of the number of attempts and such outcome should untimely retire many known politicians from politics of Akwa Ibom State, God and people forbid.

If APC nominate H.E. Obong Nsima U. Ekere, an experienced personality with capacity from Eket Senatorial District, favoured by the sacrosanct mindset of Akwa Ibom State people, then Akwa Ibom is APC and history of opposition party winning governorship election in Akwa Ibom State will be made in 2019!
