CHECKMATE! Oshiomhole should go secure wins for APC in upcoming State Assembly election and stop pock-nosing in other states, Akwa Ibom Group slams Oshiomhole

A socio-political organization in Akwa Ibom State, has called out the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, urging him to leave Akwa Ibom people alone.

The group called the Akwa Ibom Liberation  Movement (AILM), in a statement issued today, chastised the APC chairman, admonishing him to rather face his “battered political image”.



The Leader of the Movement, Prince Emmanuel Sam, in the statement made available to newsmen wondered why Oshiomhole who could not deliver Edo state for the APC at the Presidential election could lay any claims to being able to deliver Akwa Ibom state to the APC in the governorship election.

The group stressed that the people of the state would not be intimidated or harassed, adding that the people believe in the PDP and will return all the candidates of the party in Saturday’s elections.


Prince Emmanuel Sam claims Akwa Ibom APC leaders lying to Buhari


“From the recent ranting of Adam Oshiomole about the elections that took place in Akwa Ibom, it may not be too wrong to deduce that the national leader is making waves to instigate their members to act ultra-vires  in the forth-coming state elections. May be, this is coming as the result of the fact that they already have a premonition of another round of colossal collapse and outright defeat, which will render the face of the APC, a shattered visage in Akwa Ibom State. Akwa Ibom people know what they want and they will go for it; we want the peace that is sweeping through this state to remain. It is a priceless commodity that we cannot trade by selling our votes. We want a terror-free tenure and people-oriented governance. Hence, Akwa Ibom people want to vote in the coming elections under a peaceful atmosphere devoid of intimidation.”

The group stressed that the will of the people cannot be highjacked by whatever might there may be, adding that the senatorial election in Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District has proven that nobody puts himself in the place of the Majesty on High and survives it.



It would be recalled that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, narrowly won the presidential election in Edo state with 7,849 votes more than his main rival, President Muhammadu Buhari, in the just concluded Presidential election in the state

Atiku scored 275,691 votes, while Mr Buhari of the All Progressives Congress scored 267,842 votes.

However, Buhari beat Atiku in the number of councils won. He won in 10 while Atiku won in eight.



The State Collation Officer for the Presidential election (SCOPE), Ndowa Lale, who is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port-Harcourt, said the total number of registered voters in state was 2,150,127 while the total number of accredited voters was 604,915.
