Welcome! Get the gist as they drop...

Udom’s woes deepens

The last few months has been a controversial one for Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State. Mr. Emmanuel h as appeared to veer from one crisis to another. The latest being the controversial and voluntary withdrawal from office as Special Assistant to the Governor on Electoral Matters by Barr. Chris Okorie.

A cross-section of Akwa Ibom people at home and in diaspora hailed this decision as timely and worthy of emulation as this can only be practiced by a true democrat and progressive who reject to be personally satisfied while his people are crying for government presence.
This singular stance gives Okorie out as a man to watch out for in the emerging political calculations, for 2019 in the state.
In recent times, very few politicians in this clime are in the mould of Barr. Chris Okorie. Anybody in doubt should take a trip to any of the areas under the political bloc known as the Abak 5.

In partnership to score a political point, stability and tolerance, what is needed in the progressive fold is a thoroughbred politician who has done it before and is ready to sacrifice his resources for his people's common good. The youths have become despondent and feel left behind by the political and economic equation which Okorie understands and is ready to serve as a tool for its realization.
Okorie's financial management ingenuity, unparalleled political mobilisation capacity and the ability to keep his large political family together are some of the reasons he would continue to be celebrated and revered for a long time to come as far as  Abak 5 politics is concerned.

Even in the entire Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District also "Okorie is regarded as a  bridge-builder and an astute politician " as claimed by Asuquo Okon.
He also added that, “Chris Okorie means many things to many people but there are certain things that everyone agrees about him: a political think-thank, master strategist, promoter of politics of inclusion, political futurist and fearless activist and top politician per excellence.
“His life is packed with personal achievements and involvements as a Local Government Chairman, a pro-democracy activist, a successful legal practitioner, mentor of successful leaders and currently a major player and factor in Akwa Ibom political scene," Okon added.

Speaking with this reporter, Michael Matthew asserted that Chris Okorie, “strikes as a consummate politician and very strategic, original political thinker.
“When he became a council chairman of Etim Ekpo, the area was relatively peaceful and empowering the locals was top on his agenda. The rest is history as his performances stands on firm, sure footing of unimaginable development proportion.
“There is no denying the fact that Okorie is a rare breed politician, patriot and a true democrat. Through his political efforts and strategies, progressive politics for which the Abak 5 was noted now dominates the realm,” he added.

The leadership problems currently faced in Akwa Ibom State requires that we pay adequate attention to rescuing what is given to us in terms of leaders and those who can be forced to achieve what is needed for the task of state building. And all this becomes imperative despite their human frailty.
Reacting to this point of view, an  elderstatesman in Abak, Essien Etim pointed out thus: “No doubt, the accounts of modern Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District political evolution would not be complete without ample recognition of the roles of this selfless political leader.”
The importance of the role Okorie played in the political developments of the present occupants of the Hiltop Mansion cannot be underestimated.

The fundamental question for us all is: What can be done with or gained from Okorie’s political capital as a significant dynamics come 2019? The type of political capital Akwa Ibom requires for a significant progress is definitely not one that deploys charisma for the purpose of dumb electoral victory as experienced In 2015.
On the contrary, there is the need for an ideological arrowhead that could serve as the rallying point for a progressive recalibration of politics around which we can redefine democratic governance.
With his successes in different strata of life, Chris Okorie displays many virtues that speaks to the fact that he is his own person and ideology matters in good governance. A leader that moves with the tides of political maneuvers is definitely one without a backbone required to move ideas to practice.

Yesterday, Etim Ekpo was agog with celebration as the people gathered to witness their Leader take a very decisive decision in his political career as conveyed in his facebook page while marking his Son's birthday.
Chris Okorie wrote; "Happy birthday dude. I continually thank God for giving you to us. I decree success in all you do all the days of your life. You brought us so much joy....and today, I take another big step in my political life !!! It shall surely end in praise."
Hon Chris Okorie was officially registered and certified a card carrying APC member on the 6th of July, 2017 at his ward.
