The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has responded to the alleged press statement issued by the All Progressives Congress, APC fingering the Akwa Ibom Traditional Council into what they term shortcomings of the APC at the ongoing Governorship Tribunal in the state.

In a press statement signed by Comrade Ini Ememobong, Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and made available to Now Update, he said,

“The All Progressives Congress, Akwa Ibom State has in their characteristic tradition made lying and deception their Nicene creed and clothed themselves with insolence as a fitting mandarin jacket. In a recent publication, the broom carrying movement shamelessly deprecated our revered traditional rulers for demanding a cessation of virulent media attacks on the Governor. The admonition by the traditional fathers was made in utmost good faith, to caution the APC and their shameless leaders from further sponsoring media campaigns against the Governor.

Ememobong maintained that the statement was not to dissuade them from continuing in their potentially fruitless legal circumambulation but to caution against baseless, unsubstantiated and very shameless accusations against the Governor, INEC, Religious Leaders, etc. He said the APC through their leadership has accused almost anybody and anything within sight as being instrumental to their electoral loss.

“These allegations, when heard, tend to reduce the intellectual standing of the average Akwa Ibom citizen in the estimation of rational people. In fact, the leadership of the APC in the state and their candidates had since become examples of disgraceful political misadventure”, he said.

He further stated that the release alleged that the Paramount Rulers did not act within the realms of neutrality in issuing a statement asking for a cessation of media hostilities.

“The APC forgot that while on their campaign, they had conscripted some village and clan heads into their campaign trail. They have forgotten that they jubilantly posted videos and news of some paramount rulers who openly endorsed their candidates. By their action they have reinforced our speculation that the APC leadership in the state is suffering from chronic selective amnesia”, he narrated.

Ememobong explained that the APC, in and out of the tribunal has been the synonym of confusion, befuddlement, and stupefaction. They have adopted doublespeak, flip flop and scenario creation as a strategy, but unfortunately, available results show that it has been a bad strategy.

“The world must be having a huge laughter with the succumbing submission made by their ‘walking stick’ Governorship candidate, who earlier, alongside the National Comedian, boasted to the world that their party won 26 Local Government Areas during the Governorship elections and that they were heading to the tribunal to ‘reclaim’ their mandate”.

“However, when he and his party arrived the tribunal and discovered that the only mandate they had was an agreement to use armed thugs to rig elections while killing and maiming innocent citizens, they abandoned their ‘tales by moonlight’ victory claim and took up the defeatist exclamation that “elections did not hold”.

“While we sympathize with him and his ilk, we wish to remind them that King Solomon when faced with a similar situation where two women were laying claim to a living child, had laid the locus classicus for future determination of such cases. Akwa Ibom people know the truth and we are hopeful that the Tribunal and all other courts in the land will apply the extant Law to the facts presented and confirm the overwhelming victory of Governor Udom Emmanuel and other PDP candidates in the 2019 elections”, he explained.

Ini Ememobong while addressing a press briefing in Uyo apologized to the Akwa Ibom Traditional Council, in his words he said,

“We apologize to our revered royal fathers for the unmerited insults hurled at them by people who strenuously tried to gain their support through financial inducements, devilish political horse-trading, and threats. Having played God and lost favor with men, they are irredeemably pained and have found comfort in spewing shameless lies and exhibiting irreverent behavior. The Akwa Ibom public is well aware of their atrocious disposition and can therefore not take them seriously”.

Ememobong maintained that traditional rulers as custodians of our customs, values, and traditions must be respected and they have a right to intervene when situations arise that can bring disrepute to our corporate identity and threaten our peaceful existence.
