Between Amaechi and Akpabio


“We were together at the University of Calabar for four years; between 1983 and 1987. He was in the Faculty of Law while I was in the Faculty of Arts. His politics started from school when he was elected clerk of the Students Parliament”

“In all of the experiences, Akpabio has remained the same. Ever cheerful even in agony, he is a grand master of subterfuge. His position is never betrayed by his poise and his real intention only manifests in the very long run and not in the short run. He desires by avoidance and perpetually restless in his own power dynamics. Every of his move is a tactic within a larger strategy to realise an ultimate goal. He May look left when he actually wishes to move right”

“Like a chameleon, Akpabio assumes the physical characteristics of the surrounding environment as a survival strategy. He is cowardly, self-centred, unstable and less able to work for the resolution of the issues in the Niger Delta”

I am a civil, human and political rights activist. I chose to speak for the ignored and powerless. The Nigerian political scene is a jungle. Print and electronic media are owned by wealthy elites who irrespective of ethnicity and religion suppress public discourse of misgovernance, their political and economic ineptitude which has left Nigeria on it's knees. seeks to fix that. That is our aim. That is my life calling and purpose.
