Akwa Ibom Tibunal Should Have Cancelled Governorship Election – Etiebet

A previous Petroleum Minister, Don Etiebet has responded to the outcome of the Akwa Ibom. Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that sat in Abuja. As indicated by him, the decision was a fraud and suppression of the people’s will. Talking with columnists in Uyo on Wednesday, Etiebet said that he and different senior citizens in the state were determined to return majority rules system to Akwa Ibom State.

He said the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State had appealed for total cancelation of the governorship decision. Etiebet demanded that the decision should have been totally canceled, including that the environment was not favorable for the general population to participate.

His words: “We will always stand by the truth in this state. We have to work hard to ensure that this state belongs to all Akwa Ibom people, not to a group of hooligans, cult boys, or thugs.

“We are not going to submit to any intimidation by anybody. Who in this state has not benefitted from me that I should be afraid of?

“We want to return this state to democracy; we want to return this state to a situation where people will come out and cast their votes for the candidates of their choice. Right now, there is no such environment.”

    Most of their judgements nowadays are a little bit to the right, a little bit to the left.

    You can NOT equal Akpabio’s results just by playing the old game of divide and rule bestowed on you by the North.
