In a follow up to our report last week, on the Akwa Ibom State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman’s interest, to install his younger brother as the next Local Government Chairman in Etinan, checks reveals that, Paul Ekpo, has insisted that that his brother, Cletus Ekpo, must be the Chairman, against popular opinion.
Paul Ekpo we gathered has dusted his hatchet game, to canvass for support on his brother’s behalf, along his co-travelers in the business.
Sources say, they have gathered in their swift, greedy and self centered technique of eating it all alone to endorse his younger brother, Cletus, who is currently the Transition Chairman of Etinan LGA.
A top ranking secret and popular poll aimed at sampling the opinions of collective persons and greedy stakeholders revealed that, the candidacy of Cletus should be off the thinking box of well meaning Iman sons and daughters.
“Why should Paul Ekpo feel he can pocket us and move around the way and manner he feels and desires? We can’t keep quiet and watch things fall apart in Etinan-Eket. Aside few close associates of his who can’t boost of nothing in the end, who has Paul deeply impacted in Etinan? A source queried.
This whole nonsense has to be nipped in the bud. Paul should realize he is no god. Let him stop playing and acting like one. I hate the entire marginalizing episode”, a foremost stakeholder thundered.
Feelers making the round have confirmed that they are not relenting, but it will not be easy for them. “Paul is not learning at all, he should realize that people who indulge in this archaic and sinister imposition act which is old fashioned in the political order, failed woefully,” a youth leader reacted.
“We are waiting for him and all his antics, because, we know how far he can go.” another fumed.
The political landscape of Iman has been infiltrated, as few greedy men are bent on tearing a once united people apart. Something needs to be done urgently and the steps must be taken to evade a political miscalculation and miscarriage in Iman politics, another villager said.
