You’ve nothing to offer Nigerians, Emmanuel replies Tinubu

On Monday, Udom Emmanuel, governor of Akwa Ibom State, responded to Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, by stating that Tinubu always resorts to verbal abuse and insults during campaigns because he has nothing to offer Nigerians.

In addition, he stated that despite the former Lagos State Governor’s insults, he would rather maintain peace by ignoring him and concentrating on assisting in the establishment of good governance to rescue Nigerians from their current difficulties.

On Tuesday evening, Emmanuel gave a speech at Government House in Uyo. He also inaugurated newly appointed Permanent Secretaries, Chairmen, and Members of Boards and Commissions, as well as a Transition Committee, to ensure that power will be transferred to the next administration without any problems.

Remember that, according to reports, Tinubu said at his rally in Uyo on Monday afternoon, “Akwa Ibom, that boy wey bring Atiku here, wey de call himself Governor, tell him enough is enough!” I would have driven him home if we hadn’t agreed to meet, as he lives in my backyard in Lagos. You can just put him inside that mansion he lives in with lizards, pigeons, and scorpions, as you can see.

However, a few hours later, in response, the Governor of Akwa Ibom State stated, “For the country to remain in peace, one party must ‘play saint,’ and he would refrain from responding to Tinubu.”

“I also go to other states, and if you watch our campaigns, my principal (Atiku Abubakar) has never spoken about any Governor, he has never spoken openly about Asiwaju before,” Emmanuel, the Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaigns, stated.

He went on to say that it was unfortunate that Tinubu, who had access to state-owned facilities like the airport, security, and stadium to promote his manifesto, ended up insulting the integrity of over 7.9 million people in Akwa Ibom.

“But here our people at the stadium, including some state governors just laughed and applauded him,” the governor said, posing the question of whether any Akwa Ibomite could travel to Lagos, where Tinubu resides, or the state from which he hails, insult Tinubu in the same manner and still be permitted to safely return home.

What gives him the impression that he will lead Nigeria? People will call me and say, “Haba oga, you are not like that,” if I respond to him right now. However, I’ll reply to him one day. Nigeria is in God’s hands, and there is nothing like “emilokan” (it is my turn) here.

In the meantime, the governor thanked the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries for accepting the difficult work and encouraged them to think of themselves as ambassadors and work toward raising the standard of leadership, which would increase productivity and foster good working relationships with subordinates.

“This is one thing I promised the people of Akwa Ibom: the appointment of Permanent Secretaries will be solely based on merit and not mercy; those who are capable of performing their duties should be given the opportunity. A merit-based appointment to the position of permanent Secretary is not a promotion.

Governor Emmanuel also reiterated his commitment to improving civil service efficiency, noting that civil servants have been promoted annually under his administration.

He also urged others to make an impact that will stand out.
