Video: Governor Akpabio admits rigging senatorial primary election

Akwa Ibom governor Godswill Akpabio confessed to manipulating the result of a PDP senatorial primary election in the state in 2007 by replacing the winner with his own candidate. The governor fearlessly said this on live TV. Akpabio said:
“The people of Ikono and Ini from 1960 have never produced a Senator. I used my own hand to strike out the name of the person who has won before, and I said it is important for me to give that region a Senator in 2007, and I produced Senator Aloysius Etuk for you; that’s where he comes from.”
Unbelievable! Watch the video above. But shouldn't this call for a probe...?

Smh! He says that with impunity because he knows there is little or nothing that can be done against him even with him admitting that openly, how sad of a realisation we have as a country, how sad!

You're clearly not a student
with the way you troll this
blog 24/7, and then attack

comments under
anonymous. So you don't
attend class, lectures, do
homework, or study? Smh.
Student my ass.
I really feel sorry for you.
Your life begins and ends
with refreshing Linda's blog.
I'm more than sure you're
someone on house arrest
that obviously has nothing
better to do. What a
miserable existence

Smart readers; please rate this imbecile's pea-sized brain.

Reminds me of when Chris Uba and Chris Ngige went to Obasanjo and Chris told him he rigged the election for Ngige,and the then president did nothing.
same applies in this case,nothing will happen.
gradually Nigerians are pushed to the elastic limit and soon they'll bounce back.

This shows that they’re no more scared of anybody. They’re totally in charge. For them, corruption has come to stay; no one to challenge them - no judiciary or any other arm of government to challenge them anymore, jona government is all about looting. For how long are we going to continue like this while the goat is still preparing for 2015? Is a pity. Badluck government is really taken the masses for granted. God, please don’t forsake us… too bad...

investigate well ooo. He made a political Statement; he didnt say that he rigged the election.He merely picked a candidate and said that the person who has gone(won before) should step down.Read meaning into this sentence " I used my own hand to strike out the name of the person who has won before, and I said it is important for me to give that region a Senator in 2007, and I produced Senator Aloysius Etuk" He produced a candidate who eventually won. Lets be logical and rational.

The guy is corrupt, but you can't deny he's done a lot for his state than the many governors before him. I just wished they'd work as hard on improving the state as they do being corrupt and stealing funds.
All governments everywhere are corrupt, it just comes down to the level of corruption, and Nigeria is by far through the roof

This is a serious situation and to think this man is boastfully announcing it means that he believes nothing indicting can come out of it. In a just society, he would be subpoenaed and made to explain in court.

Linda Linda Linda, it is quit obvious that u hv serious and personal beef for Akpabio recently cos u've been on his case too much.

Anonymous said...

Akpabio must be shitting me!

I always wondered who was responsible for putting that irresponsible greedy man in that position, but now i know.
Aloysius had all these bad qualities that made him unfit to be out in a position of power. He never hid the fact that he was money hungry.

This Aloysius Etuk guy has an overrated school that I was unfortunate enough to attend. Overrated does not quite describe the school. This man is/was a constant liar.

He did not care about the welfare of his students who were paying loads of money to attend his wretched school. In fact, he spent time trying to deprive us! He is/was a truly devious man, who did not care about the welfare of anybody but himself!

The school was his funding machine for his seemingly dead career (at the time). He would cut back on feeding, and other amenities, just so he could sponsor his ambitions, then he would lie to parents.

He would hold political meetings/fundraisers at the school auditorium, (while classes were going on) knowing full well those acts could have repercussions.

One time, the school got attacked by his opponents political thugs, due to his past indiscretions. Buildings were burnt, cars set ablaze. Etc. luckily, no one was hurt.

He would bring young girls, sometimes, corpers, to his school and where his children were, then he would very obviously leave, in full glare of the whole school, with a girl under each arm, and his children watching. Most times, his daughter would be crying as her classmates made fun of her dad.

Aloysius' wife got kidnapped, and the kidnappers demanded money, and can you imagine that this man was hesitating to pay?
The daughter had to beg, before he even bothered to negotiate.

I left Akwa Ibom as soon as I graduated, so I never got to see how much impact this so-called 'chosen one' made to the state, but I heard that he was a deadbeat.

He exhibited those qualities from the beginning with us, his students, so I don't see how he would change when it came to his state.

Akpabio is a foolish man. Granted, this state is truly undergoing serious development. But i feel this man has this Messiah complex, like he is doing his people a favor.

Linda the man was speaking in pidgin he said I use my hand to strike the person who won before (the former senator) and gave you the present

Senator Aloy Etuk has just been indirectly indicted by the governor. The so called governor if u ask me, did not do this in good faith to him, im sure he doesnt want him to continue on that seat. All these are political gimmicks.

As per doing anything to the Election thief called Akpabio, lets forget it cos he has the yam and the cutlass. Remember his 'oga at d top"

@ec 9.32am please kindly speak for yourself and don't drag Akwaibomites into this. I think u should look up the meaning of objective.Also get him to sponsor you to an etiquette school so you can learn some social media etiquette. Nobody is paying anyone to say anything. it is simply res ipsa loquitor:). Be really honest with urself and leave sentiments. If u really like your leader then you must caution him when he is going wrong....or don't you think so?

he can afford to say that without impunity because he knows how he (Akpabio)got there... and so do the rest of the people sited at that gathering. those are the kind of things they sit and joke about over a bottle of beer, he probably forgot the event was broadcast live.
Linda kindly ask all them news agencies and investigative journalist,TV houses Channels TV and Nigerians in general why they have not made such a fuss about this video, why isn't this video all over bbm, youtube, facebook, CNN Ireport, Al-jazeera etc, or is this not bigger than the "my oga at the top" display of ignorance.
Truth is that we (Nigerians)don't take ourselves seriously so we should not expect same from people who govern us.
WE ARE OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM.
