* As OBA Receives Royal Blessings.

The President General of Ifim Ibom Ibibio, His Eminence, Nteyin (Dr) Solomon Etuk, has said only God can determine who becomes the next governor, warning politicians in Akwa Ibom not to expect the traditional rulers to give them power.

The royal father made this known when the leading governorship aspirant in Akwa Ibom State, Senator Bassey Albert Akpan (OBA), paid a consultative visit to the Ifim Ibom Ibibio Council today, (March 25, 2022).

His Eminence Etuk said God is not confused and only He can decide who the next governor will be, despite human machinations.

“God is a living God and chooses at all times who He wants. Not by force or how man thinks. He does everything according to how he designs”, he said.

He added that they as royal fathers are open to receive all the aspirants, while charging Ibibio people to change the negative attitude of denigrating, backstabbing or running others down.

The royal father prayed God to give OBA the position of governor, which is his heart desire, while protecting him and family.

When OBA reported that he was barred from meeting with the delegates in Nsit Ubium, the royal fathers charged political combatants to allow peace to reign in the state.

While consulting the traditional fathers, OBA recounted his sojourn in public office, adding that as a commissioner and later senator, his impacts on the Ibibio nation are visible and palpable.

As a senator, he said he has not been discriminating against anyone but has been working for the benefit of the entire Ibibio and Akwa Ibom state.

In the last four years, he said he trained about 481 students and produced 28 first class graduates in the area of engineering, medicine and pharmacy across the state. He promised to do more as a governor.

Presenting his blueprint to the Ifim Ibom, OBA said he was prepared for the job and that he has the most experience among all the aspirants and will never forget Ibibioland as governor.

He appealed for unity and called on all Ibibio sons and daughters to give the Oku Ibom Ibibio institution the pride of place that it deserves.

HRM, Okuku Ime Udousoro Inyang, Paramount Ruler of Ibiono and Chairman of Ifim Ibom, in his reaction, called for peace among the aspirants, submitting that with the calibre of politicians with OBA, he was happy because they are all peacemakers.

On his part, the Vice Chairman of Ifim Ibom and Paramount Ruler of Ikot Abasi, Edidem Ntuk Ubom,
prayed God to bless OBA, adding that it is only God that gives power to who ever He wishes.

He then pleaded with God to clear every evil from OBA’s path and chose the best governor for Akwa Ibom.

On his way to meet with the consultants, OBA stopped over st the palace of Edidem Ukpong Udoewah, the clan head of Ubium.

The clan also prayed for the senator, saying since OBA did not discriminate against him and stopped by to consult him, God will bless him and make him the next governor.
