MKPAT ENIN CHAIRMANSHIP: NKEREUWEM AKAI’S SECRET PACT WITH APC, NSIMA EKERE UNCOVERED

The avowed commitment to the alleged Governorship ambition of Obong Nsima Ekere by the former Chapter Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Mkpat Enin Local Government Area, Hon. Nkereuwem Akai, has been uncovered through the secret pact they entered.

Some esteemed citizens of the area, who are very close to the former Chapter Chairman, said he secretly mobilized for Obong Nsima Ekere in the 2015 Governorship election, maintaining that “he was given N500, 000 for each of the 14 Wards that make up the local government area. This is a known fact that he cannot deny before us. Are you not aware that Hon. Nkereuwem Akai is still one of the APC’s strongest allies?”

They said they could not fold their hands and watch the former Chapter Chairman of the PDP use politics of deceit and disloyalty to destroy the good intention of the Governor for the people of the area.

According to them, “Hon. Nkereuwem Akai goes to Governor Udom Emmanuel by day and at night he goes to Obong Nsima Ekere. Is that not deceits and double standard? Why is he in a desperate move to be relevant? It is bad for one to try to serve two masters; you cannot be loyal to both of them. We know the loyalty of Hon. Nkereuwem Akai lies with Nsima Ekere. So, let him stop to deceive our Governor.”

The esteemed citizens, who appealed to PDP stakeholders of the area to be alert to the clandestine activities of Hon. Nkereuwem Akai, also alleged that the former Chapter Chairman through his ally, Mr. Ephraim Akpan a former Chairman of Mkpat Enin Local Government Council, was currently using the name State Chairman of the party, Obong Paul Ekpo, to run for the Chairmanship of Mkpat Enin Local Government Council.

“The rumour around town by Hon. Nkereuwem Akai, his ally, Mr. Ephraim Akpan, and supporters, is that Obong Paul Ekpo has concluded arrangement to enthrone Hon. Nkereuwem Akai as the next Chairman of Mkpat Enin Local Government Council. This is a blatant lie perpetrated by Hon. Nkereuwem Akai and his cohorts. We urge the stakeholders of Mkpat Enin and the State Executive Committee of the party to take this action serious. Hon. Nkereuwem Akai must not be allowed to go about impersonating the State Chairman of the party in the name of election. Enough is enough,” they warned.

The esteemed citizens of the area appealed to Governor Udom Emmanuel to come to their aid by ensuring that the wish of the people is enshrined in the forthcoming local government election.

They further appealed to stakeholders of the area to ensure the directive of the Governor regarding the forthcoming local government election is carried out, adding that they should not sit and watch the name of the State Chairman of the party dragged to the mud by Hon. Nkereuwem and his cohorts.
