NDDC: MINISTER SACKS PRESS SECRETARY OVER ‘GHANA MUST GO’

Fresh facts have emerged that the sacking of the chief press secretary to the minister of niger Delta affairs may not be unconnected with the mismanagement of their recent visit by the minister to Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo.

Anietie Ekong, is said to have attracted the irk of his principal, Senator Godswill Akpabio, when pictures of a large 'Ghana Must Go' bag, suspected to contain millions of hard currency, were seen on the social media being escorted by the Minister to the creek.

It is believed that the Akpabio's philosophy, "what money cannot do, more money can do", has led to alleged frittering of billions of public funds on frivolous expenditures.

The visit to Tompolo, followed a seven day ultimatum, where the ex militant threatened to disrupt operations by the NDDC and other federal government parastatals, if a substantial board is not put in place by the Minister.

However during the visit, reports confirm that Akpabio and his entourage were seen coming out of the creeks, but without the big bag they dragged with them.

Whatever the contents of the bag, it was enough for the ex warlord to grant an extension to the ultimatum he issued, with the Minister given till the end of June to constitute the substantive board for the regional money spinning intervention agency.

However, Mr Government Ekpemupolo disagreed with the notion that Akpabio's money moved him to shift grounds.

In a statement, he said he review the early ultimatum he issued last Monday due to the aftermath of the consultative meeting held at Oporoza in Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South West Local government Area (LGA), Delta State by leaders, youths and stakeholders from the region and not any form of inducement.

Ekpemupolo said he waded into the matter because of his love for the region and Nigeria, noting that he could not be compromised by money and other material things.

But Senator Godswill Akpabio is said to have been greatly embarrassed when the pictures of one of his aides carrying the huge bag, attracted widespread condemnations and ridicules from the media.

He blamed Anietie Ekong for negligent and careless in the pictures he sent out to the public.


His anger was further heightened when it was discovered that no external cameraman had access to the minister's visit which was done by boats and highly restricted.

A letter yesterday, by the Chief of Staff to the Minister, Sir Etekamba Umoren, announced that Anietie Ekong has been replaced by Jackson Udom, publisher of an online media platform, Pees Reporters.

Jackson Udom, a one time reporter with Tribune Newspaper had worked under Anietie Ekong in the media team of the Minister.

As an Igbo man, I have no problem with Tompolo or any Niger deltan enjoying or even stealing the proceeds of the oil God blessed them with.After all,stealing and looting is all abokki has done to this once beautiful country since independence.
What I have a problem with is the lazy,uncircumcised desert terrorists who have never seen a swamp talk more of an oil well,coming to loot the resources of the region like they do thru headship of NNPC etc.
May Allah continue to punish all Islamic terrorists and their supporters.

Well very soon I go leave this country for all of Una. Imagine the nonsense, no hope for innocent and legal working guys again.
Naija is just a country that understands violence as a normal thing
My problem with this shit is that both the militants and fg does not care for the poor masses
I believe at his juncture, Niger deltans should know who to hold ransom for under development in their region

Accused of ritual killing.. Hes still the one going up amd down..

Its not a curse, but Nigeria can never be well.

There's nothing wrong with Nigeria as a geographic location.. But the devil lives inside the people of Nigeria.. Yes afteralll buhari is a Nigerian too.

God forbid... Thank God for my dual citizenship.. Make God help una whey no get options.

Ps:
People now say Nigeria is like Afghanistan, syria now etc.. Its not possible, Nigeria is below Afghanistan.. At least they have constant power supply... Only people that haven't smelt seme border talk less of airport believe Nigeria is a giant in Africa..

This is what Niger Delta militants do.
All the time. They run out of cash, you see them dishing out ultimatums.
Once they're paid, they keep quiet.
Yet folks call them freedom fighters.
They're as guilty and evil as the same politicians in Abuja who loot the oil resources without let..
