Another ally of Akwa Ibom State Governor and Special Adviser on Electoral Matters, Honorable Mfon Udeme has dumped the Governor Emmanuel.

In his resignation letter addressed to the Governor, the former Chairman of Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area sited ill-treatment and high-handedness by the Governor as his reasons for quitting the cabinet.

The Governor has been accused severally by close associates of being egoistic and always looking down on his aides and associates especially those he perceives to be local based and not ‘exposed’. The Governor is reported to have once asked an aide which business schools he has attended that make him think he is qualified to advise him on anything.

Those close to the governor have accused him of favouring certain appointees like Elder Ufot Ebong, Ime Umoh, Ini Edo, Ime Uwah amongst others to the detriment of other aides who for over three years have not been given official cars or even office spaces. The Governor has also been accused of retrieving a Toyota Hilux Van given to one of his aides by a financial institution in the state, with the excuse that he doesn’t need the car.

Former Chairman of Etim Ekpo Local Government Area, Honorable Chris Okorie who had earlier resigned his position as a Special Adviser to the Governor also sited unfavorable working conditions as his reason.


As the 2019 election draws closer they are indications that more and more people who feel looked down on and humiliated by the Governor, his wife and his close associates will most likely abandon him to his fate and either join his estranged godfather Senator Godswill Akpabio to oust him from office or watch from the sidelines.
