Governor Godswill Akpabio is known to be generous. He is said to be very free with money. And, consequently, money never constitutes a stumbling block whenever he sets to achieve something. This has won him accolades with regard to many of his achievements in his state.
But could he have parted with N5billion just to ensure his preferred candidate won the last governorship election in Akwa-Ibom State? Check out this scene in Uyo, the state capital last week:
It was an unusual and tensions-soaked meeting at the Akwa-Ibom State secretariat of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, along Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo last Thursday and the agenda of the meeting was ‘Threat To Life’.
The Akwa-Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner-REC, Barrister Austin Okojie had summoned the staff including security operatives and Youth Corps members attached to the commission to inform them of how he had been rattled by repeated anonymous telephone calls all of which, he said, conveyed death sentenceson him by a one of the security staff. The said staff was demanding his share of the Five Billion Naira(N5BN) the REC allegedly received from Governor Godswill Akpabio on behalf of the staff of the commission. The INEC boss was being told to be fair to others and let them have a piece of the cake or face horrendous consequences.
As human, Okojie, the state INEC boss, said he was engulfed with fear such that he lost hiscomposure even though he did not know the character behind the treacherousintermittent midnight callsand even when he was speechless each time the calls came; the person aggravated his fears by sending text messages.
At thispoint, the REC told the staff at the meeting that he finally decided to call the Department of State Service (DSS) both in Akwa-Ibom and Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT)to complain of the danger to his life and also the lives of his family members with whom he had been subjected to trauma through those midnight calls and text messages. He said that he was advised by the DSS to forward the text messages for forensic tests. He said:
“I don’t know whether this person knows exactly what N5Billion looks like in volume! I will collapse if I see that kind of money. Besides, I don’t think I can finish that kind of money in my life time. If I should be in possession of N5BN, I wouldn’t be sitting here today, I would have travelled out of this country with my family and settled there to enjoy the money.
“But it is pathetic the way people speculate and spread false information in this state. I was barely five days in this state when some sponsored local newspapers published on their front pages that Governor Akpabio received me into the state with N5 billion and 2,000 bags of rice.
“I want you to know that I have not received any gratification or the so called N5billion directly or indirectly on your behalf from anybody. I am also not indebted to any of you because all your allowances, claims and entitlements have been paid up to date”.
He lamented that following the threats which were often issued at nights, he was no longer feeling safe and comfortable in the state and may be tempted to travel home to report his experience to his people in Edo State.
“Indeed, I am worried and utterly disturbed by those threats because I have never seen or met the person threatening me even though he claims to be a staff of this commission.
“I am now living in total fear of the unknown, discomfort and danger to my life and members of my family because I can no longer move about freely as any other loyal and law-abiding citizen of this country. I now live in utter fear of the unknown.
“I am so worried that my life and those of members of my family could be made this miserable by someone I am not even indebted to and never discussed with or negotiated any business with officially and unofficially as all the allowances and claims due every staff had since been paid”, Okojie lamented.
He therefore used the platform to solicit the cooperation of the security agenciesin the state to investigate the character behind the threats to his life for possible prosecution as according to him, if such perfidious characters were allowed to walk the streets of the state free, many innocent lives would be rendered uncomfortable and endangered.
Some of the text messagesread: “Oga Okojie, it is a fool like you that says in your hearts and being, there is no God, because you are corrupt and have done abominable worksn in you doeth no good (Psalm 14:1). U must reward all the staff of the INEC, AKS based on the moneysent to them bythe state Governor. You want to embezzle it for the sake of buy’n your cocaine. I am going to open your dirty can to all the anti-graft agencies.
“Bet me, soon you will go in for it. For the Holy Bible says whatever a man soweth that is what he shall reap. You sow to corruption and greed, your reward is death. , slowpoke, ino, barawo, ikong ekpo. God will punish you 100 times including all ur households and the incoming and the unborn generations, except you share that money to all the staff”.
When asked to react to the agenda of the meeting, none of the INEC staff numbering over 300 including security operatives and Youth Corps members attached to the commission, could immediately comment on the issue and it appeared that they were worried by the ugly development and were in sympathy with the REC for the psychological trauma he was subjected to by the threats to hislife and members of his family.
However, two members of the staff summoned the courage to speak. One said: “Honourable Commissioner, we are very sorry for what you have passed through due to those threats. The name of the staff mentioned isof the security department of this commission where I am the head. We have never discussed any such issue collectively as staff of the security department and we did not mandate him to do anythingon our behalf. But as our father, we plead that you forgive him because we know that the purpose of this meeting is to enable us reason together.
“If the punishment you intend to mete out to him is too heavy, it is the innocent members of his family or his dependants who will suffer. Please, let his punishment be light for him to be able to bear. Continue to be a father to him believing that he would turn a new leaf”, the staff pleaded. The same plea was made by the same speaker even as he berated the said staff for misconduct.
Coincidentally, the alleged perfidious messages and calls threatening the life of the REC and members of his family, were tracked by the Departmentof State Service (DSS) in conjunction with the Mobile Phone Providers and the name of the staff was identified. He is a security staff with the commission. Even when he had allegedly destroyed the SIM card after executing his malicious project, the text messages were said to have been used to identifythe source, location and the image of the person.
Following this revelation, the DSS was said to have swung into action and got the suspect apprehended.
Director-General (D-G), Department of State Service, Akwa-Ibom State, Mr. TomaMinti said the suspect, Asuquo David has confessed to his deeds and has been handed over to the police accordingly.
But the Akwa-Ibom State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs. Cordelia Nwawe did not respond to phone calls for comment on the issue.
When apc wins election, it is free and fair. When pdp wins, it is rigged. I blame Gej for destroying pdp with lackadaisical way of leadership. He brought all these upon himself and pdp. Apc will rubish his administration's achievements as soon as they assume office.
| Politics / Re: Patience Jonathan Fuelled My Conflict With President, PDP – Amaechi by free2ryhme: 8:01am On May 25|
The Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, on Sunday said his disagreement with President Goodluck Jonathan was fueled in part by the President’s wife, Dame Patience Jonathan.
He said this after the premiere of a documentary on Amaechi years at the Silver Bird Galleria, Abuja.
According to him, the President and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party would have taken him to the cleaners, if they had anything incriminating against him.
Amaechi said, “We had a disagreement in principle between me and the President. Have you seen a country where the Commissioner of Police is reporting to the wife of the President? It’s in Rivers State.
“Have you seen a country where the Brigade Commander or the Navy Commander or Air Force Commander is reporting to the wife of the President? It’s in Rivers State.”
He explained that he was convinced that such conduct would not help in the development of any nation, saying he took a stand against it.
Amaechi stressed that Nigeria must never again go back to such dark days, stressing that public officers should learn to lead by the rule so as to avoid abuse of office by their spouses.
He pointed out that it was the husband of Mrs. Jonathan, who was elected.
The governor revealed that in his own case, he ensured that his wife knew her limits and he always told her she had no right to call any of his commissioners for anything, because the people voted him into office as governor, not her.
Amaechi challenged anyone, who had doubts about his performance in office, to go to Rivers State and see for himself or herself.
He also said all he did in the state were not for self-glorification but to bequeath a legacy for successive administrations in the state to sustain.
The governor added that 90 per cent of the people, who worked with him, betrayed him.
He further showcased his achievements, spanning all sectors of the state, wondering why the Federal Government was desperate about casting his administration in bad light even when he spent N105bn doing federal roads.
Amaechi pointed out that he kept a proper account of his stewardship and the books were open for all to see.
This, he said, gave him the courage to sustain the struggle, expressing joy that history would vindicate him in the end.
In the documentary, which featured some of his projects in the areas of security, works, agriculture, works, education, transportation, health and social development, Amaechi said the documentary left out some projects he would love to see documented.
Senator Magnus Abbe, who also featured in the documentary, explained how Amaechi pioneered the amnesty programmes through which unparalleled insecurity in the state was drastically reduced.
Mr. Amaechi has done his best and his own.
His courage as the lone wolf bearding the lion in its den was the precursor of the CHANGE we now have.
An uncommon Nigerian who chose not to be held captive by tribal bonds.
Yes, history would be kind to you.

It is only in Nigeria that people with dodgy past like Saraki will be aspiring to leadership.

| Culture / Re: Help! What Do I Do With My Ancestry? by free2ryhme: 3:14pm On May 24|
What the fúck? I'm confused
I took a DNA test at AncestryDNA and as I expected it says that I am 100% west African.
But I bought another kit from 23andme so I can find out my brother's Y-DNA. While I was waiting for my Brother's test results to come in, I decided to upload my AncestryDNA results to Gedmatch since Gedmatch, AncestryDNA, and 23andme all work with other. So on Gedmatch when one of the first test I took on Gedmatch was the 'Jtest' under the Eurogene project, selecting the chromosome painting process and here are the results.
Unfortunately, this particular test did not show a percentage, but they had a color code, and the color for west Africa which was light brown, was of course really really dominate.
My second test
This one is under the dodcad project, the process type was 'Admixture proportions (with link to Oracle)'
The calculator model was 'Africa9'
Here are the results (this one shows the percentage)
E Africa: 5.61%
S. Africa: 14.26%
West Africa: 69.00%
Either Gedmatch looks deeper into ancestry more. Or I need to take different types of tests at Ancestry. I took multiple test at Gedmatch because they were free, but I only felt like posting two of the tests. While ancestry I would have to pay more to get those other types of tests.
But seriously what's up with that? My genes are like the fùcking rainbow. But really I'm confused, I thought I was 100% west African Igbo , because both of my parents are Igbo, but I'm not even 100% Igbo it's self, according to ancestry, I'm 50% Nigerian, 24% Cameroon/Congo, 20% Benin/Togo, and 6% Ivory Coast/Ghana.
Also, my Parents were never slaves in America, they came to America by there own free will. They were not here during slavery, they came recently like 20 years, Like 1995, slavery was already dead, so slavery in America could not be the option with this DNA mix up.
So, when people ask me where I'm from do I list all of the countries where my DNA leads to?
Or should I just say Nigeria?
Or should I just switch up, like sometimes I say Nigeria, others times Cameroon, other times Europe, others times Middle East etc.?
And what's funny is that I don't even look mix, all my friends say I look African, that's it.
why confuse yourself with things that are beyond your control

Pls don't quote me wrongly, the purpose of this thread is not to encourage smoking but to get explanation from Nairaland deep thinkers of what could be the probable cause of it. but from my own observation, When i was opportuned to visit USA (Miami, Florida) to be precise. I was forced to compare and contast the social live styles of our Women with theirs as regard to smoking and drinking. I noticed about 45% of them were habitual smokers.
