Emmanuel Udom Replies Yahaya Bello Over Dino Melaye's Recall by itsdumebi(m): 8:52am On Jul 17
Below is a press statement from the Akwa Ibom State government in response to derogatory statements made by the Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello to Gov. Udom over his praise of Dino Melaye.

We have read with amusement the statement credited to the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello and signed by his Director-General, Media and Publicity- Kingsley Fanwo where the Governor took issues with the description of Dino Melaye, the Distinguished Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District as a “General” in the Senate by the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, His Excellency, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, during the recent empowerment event by the Senate Minority Leader, Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio (CON) held in Ikot Ekpene.

While it is highly disturbing and disappointing to have a sitting Governor say disparaging things about a Brother Governor based on a wrong analysis fed him by his media team, we will take the high road and not get personal with the Governor, our belief being that the office and the person of a Governor of a state deserve the highest level of respect and deference possible.

However, the job of professionally- minded media handlers of a public servant is to dispassionately present an unvarnished truth about a given situation to his principal and advise him on the best possible means of reaction. We are afraid the Kogi State Governor was not served well by his Director-General of Media and Publicity here otherwise he would have resisted the rush to direct the issuance of a press statement where he was quoted to have said a number of unsanitized things about a Brother Governor on an issue that was at best innocuous and done with no malice.

Let me educate Mr Fanwo a little about the good people of Akwa Ibom State: we are known nationally as highly hospitable people with courteous disposition and an abiding capacity to go the extra mile to welcome our visitors. Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye was a visitor to our State and was received in the best traditions that our people are known for. Governor Udom Emmanuel was his usual chivalrous self and did not in any way form, shape or manner disparage the Governor of Kogi State neither was his name mentioned while welcoming the Senator to the event.

We are not interested in the local politics in Kogi State or if His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello has challenges paying salaries since we don’t have such problems here in our State, as our civil servants get paid regularly and Governor Emmanuel is embarking on a number of infrastructural upgrades and other life-touching projects. He is able to do all these, through the judicious application of the lean resources available to him.

We do not intend to immerse ourselves in the politics of zero-sum game that is currently playing out in Kogi State; here in Akwa Ibom, we play politics of inclusion, where accent is placed on delivering the best democratic dividends to our people in line with the Governor’s campaign promises.

In Akwa Ibom State, the Senators serving under the platform of the PDP are united and working together with the State Governor to bring home the bacon and are not engaged in politics of personal destruction that seems to be playing out in Kogi State, little wonder Governor Udom Emmanuel was front and centre at the event hosted by the Senate Minority Leader and his worthy predecessor, Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio (CON).

Governor Yahaya Bello's media team should align with globally acceptable best practices in democratic governance where leaders are usually circumspect in their choice of words while engaging their counterparts. If the Governor’s media team truly meant well, it should have advised the Governor that he will look snippy, truculent and un-gubernatorial in the court of public opinion if he were seen to be joining issues with his Brother Governor. The statement by the Governor’s chief media handler was unfortunately pugnacious in context, pettifogger in tone and tenor and supercilious at best.

How many months does Udom owe? Do you know?

Udom owes pensioners their pension, he owns the newly recruited one year salary, he owe promotion arrears, he owe teachers salaries.

Just leave that thing, enter akwa ibom, keep your ears to the ground and then you will know that not all that glitters are gold


**************************************************
Based on my above comment, I can't respond to all of them, besides, there are all in pages 2, 3...like that. Many people will not see them. So, I have to say again. I stand by my above comments.

I am from akwa ibom state, I grew up there. I live and work there as a public servant. So I know what I am saying. I also said, if you are interested in knowing the truth, listen to the common people on the street, the civil servants, plumbers, etc.

I know every govt tries to paint a good impression of themselves. Gov. Udom is doing same. He gives the impression he doesn't owe anyone. But civil servants in the state know he does. Teachers knows he does.

2 villages decided to have a drinking competition.

A week before the competition, Village A sent Muza to Village B to confirm if the competition will be held.

On arrival, the people of Village B brought 20Ltrs of their strongest ram brewed beer.

Muza asked if he could taste and he was permitted to.

Instead of just tasting, he finished the 20Ltrs at once, and said: "This is ok..... Where is the main drink?''

The King and the people of this village were all shocked because nobody had ever taken more than 5Ltrs of this beer and stood breathing!

Then they asked him "Are you among the competitors?"

Muza said, "Me? Nooooo! I didn't qualify..."

Competition cancelled.

There has been speculations going around on social media about the proposed halt on music and music video production by Nigerian filmmakers/artistes/practitioners outside the shores of our borders and this somewhat bizarre move in my opinion is both ignorant and lacks proper thinking.
So it's OK to fly abroad for medical checkup.
So it's OK to send your kids abroad to acquire a degree they could easily get here.
So it's OK to import food and beverage for your immediate family from overseas.
So it's OK to let international business men come here and boss over your citizens.
So it's OK to bring in the "professionals" from overseas to help us build roads and engineering projects.
So it's OK to fly your spouses abroad for expensive vacations.
So it's OK to go under the radar and buy Porsches and Lamborghinis while you so neglect our "thriving and prospective " automobile industry.
And it is NOT OK to let our entertainers breathe?
Instead of thinking of inventive ways to reduce our National debt ratio, infant mortality, high cost of living, crime rate, improve our health care sector, make mortgage and insurance policies that'll better the lives of common Nigerians, halting an industry you wittingly stayed mute from its inception to its maturity is all that you care about? Seriously?
You turn a blind eye to the constant and escalating thievery and extortion by our policemen/women in broad daylight and chose to Chase shadows.
The hypocrisy when we carefully analysis certain things about our dear country is really appalling.
The entertainment industry in Nigeria is and will continue to constitute a major portion of our Annual Global Revenue even if they fail to not acknowledge this fact.
A while back, stiff ban was placed on certain products from passing through our very porous borders and while a lot of people acknowledged this move as timely, others were of the opinion that this was in the worst term - A CAREFULLY THOUGHTLESS DECISION BY OUR LAWMAKERS resident at the echelon of power. You made no provision yet you annihilate the source. Funny!
The recent craze of music and music video production by
Nigerians is only a product of a rather dwindling/moribund Entertainment sector which has managed to stay above water without government intervention.
Production outfits here in Nigeria cannot meet the standard of world class music/ video production.
If I decide to shoot my music video abroad it's only because I'm of the opinion that I can get the best over there because I KNOW mediocre thrives here at home.
Besides all expenses cumulated comes from my pockets and I see no reasons why someone somewhere should dictate how I chose to run my legitimate hustle.
First invest and reinvent and revitalize our Music/Entertainment Industry then we can talk about how you can stop giving our music/ video rights to "strangers ".
