Essien Udim Rerun: Call DIG Mike Igbizi to Order – PDP Tells IGP


By Ekemini Simon
The Peoples Democratic Party,  Akwa Ibom State Chapter has called on the Inspector General of Police, IGP Muhammad Adamu to call to order DIG Michael Igbizi over the Essien Udim rerun set to take place in less than 24 hours.
DIG Igbizi is famed to have been the police helmsman in charge of security in the just concluded Kano rerun and the governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The PDP through the National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Chairman of the PDP election committee for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem said that Senator Akpabio has procured the service of DIG Michael Igbizi  to reenact the roles played by AIG Musa Kimo during the last elections.
He alleged that Senator Akpabio and DIG Igbizi sat besides each other in the same Ibom Air flight on Thursday while arriving the State.
Enoidem noted that the DIG has marked some leading members of the PDP for intimidation, assault and arrest.
 Top on the list mentioned are Chief M.A Afangideh, Sir Emem Akpabio, Prince Akpabio, Chief E.E.P Umanah, Hon. Nsini Umanah, Hon. Anthony Luke, Hon. Sunyiekekere Inokon, Barr Imowo Okpokpo, Engr Oliver Ebong among others.
The PDP Legal Adviser mentioned that the services of armed thugs, referred to by the APC as walking stick contractors from Port Harcourt and Bayelsa States and some fake soldiers and policemen have been procured and are enroute Essien Udim for the job.
 He pointed out that the group will be under the operational command of CSP Idorenyin Akpabio, a nephew of Senator Akpabio, who is currently in charge of Operation Puff Ada in Akwa Ibom State.
Enoidem added ” To this end we are inviting all journalists, civil society groups and observers, both local and international, to witness the elections in Essien Udim.
“We advise them to come with sophisticated technology gadgets with simultaneous recording and transmitting capacity, as they tour the various units.
” It will be a crying shame for the institutions of government to allow, or aid chief Akpabio in a second opportunity to brutalize the people of Essien Udim and rape democracy.”
The National Legal Adviser offered insight to the fact that the reason behind the plot is not unconnected to the fact that Akpabio is undeterred by what he described as humiliating defeat handed him by Senator Chris Ekpenyong coupled with what he called his massive rejection by people of his senatorial district.
He insisted that Senator Godswill Akpabio has perfected plans to use foul means to manufacture large votes just to prove that he is popular in Essien Udim even after he has conceded defeat.
 Enoidem said Akpabio is determined to massively rig the elections in aid of his party’s candidates for the House of Representatives and House of Assembly just to deceive the world that APC is popular in his Local Government Area.
The PDP bigwig urged members and the general voting public in Essien Udim to take necessary protective measures to defend their votes and remain alive.
He added ” They should be conscious that those coming against them do not have duplicate lives, we must defend our people and property, from both internal and external aggression.
” We are trusting God that affliction shall not arise again upon Essien Udim people. The Lord himself will raise a standard and his will shall prevail. Power belongs to OnlyGod.”
