How Akpabio Foresaw OBA's Travail

Towards the last days of Godswill Akpabio at Government House, he was often heard making this exclamation at the end of his remarks at events, "Oh Uyo!"

This was a phrase that was very common on his lips, yet no one had an understanding of its meaning until recently when OBA was sentenced to 42 years in prison, and the people of Uyo Senatorial district have lost a seat at the National Assembly.

This is the second misfortune that has befallen the senatorial district at the red chambers. The first time was when John James Akpanudoedehe was suspended at the floor of the Senate over display of rascality during plenary. 

He was noted for bullying at the Senate, and when his excesses were no longer tolerated, he was suspended.

When he was appointed Minister of State for FCT, he was also sacked for consistently bullying people and displaying of behaviours common among rascals.

Today, it has happened again, and Uyo Senatorial district seems to be so unlucky. While senators from other senatorial districts are lobbying to drive home dividends of democracy to their people, no one is canvassing for Uyo Senatorial district.

I have now come to realize that Akpabio foresaw what Uyo people will go through, and I have nothing to say than to join him in saying: Oh Uyo!
