Umana’s Evil Agenda Exposed! Plans To Reverse Urban Renewal, Road Contracts In Eket
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, Obong Umana Okon Umana, has concluded plans to embark on a massive sack of persons of certain ethnic extraction from the state civil service, if he emerges governor.
His evil agenda was made open by an insider in the Friends of Umana Okon Umana Organization from Obot Akara, Edet Osoh that he (Umana) is on a vendetta mission to punish the Annangs, Oro, Obolo and Eket people for not supporting his election in 2015.
The source disclosed that, Obong Umana who served as Secretary to Akwa Ibom State Government for six years before he was fired by the then Governor Godswill Akpabio, has craftily kept a list of all employments in the civil service from the inception of that administration till date.
It was revealed that, while he was the head of the syndicate that employed people for political patronage, he was aggrieved that, persons sympathetic to PDP had, what he claims is the upper hand of well over 90% of the employment slots and promotions. The source added that, the list has been published through political fronts by Umana on several state based tabloids and newspapers by Umana overtime, and he has vowed to close associates that, if elected governor, he will revisit the list and embark on a mass purge of the civil service which he said is the structure of the ruling PDP to win elections.
Pundits have said this should not be taken as a joke as over 3 million Nigerians have lost their jobs since President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC took over in furtherance of their so-called CHANGE agenda.
Already, the recent sack of Barr. Dan Abia as Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and his replacement by a lady Ibim Semenatari from Rivers State, even though it is the turn of Akwa Ibom state has sparked outcry from the leaders of the state.
However, Abia’s sack is one of so many dismissals of heads of many Government agencies, parastatals, departments, and Ministries, as the APC seeks to plant their agents in all sectors of the Nigeria political economy.
Apart from the looming sack mission, it has also been revealed that, Umana is unhappy that, massive road and Urban Renewal contracts have been awarded by Governor Udom Emmanuel in Eket, Onna, Mkpat Enin, Oron among others in Eket Senatorial district and in other parts of the state in Uruan, Etinan, Uyo, Ibiono Ibom, Itu and many others.
But the APC is complaining that, the contracts should not have been awarded in the first place until the elections petition is settled and it is known who finally emerges governor.
Umana has therefore vowed to discontinue with the projects if elected as he alleges, the contracts are awarded to those sympathetic to the PDP. Umana who returns to Uyo has already started campaigning, following the annulment of the Governorship election of the April 11, 2015 by the Appeal Court. What political watchers say is Umana’s wild dream may however hit the rock as the APC is not well grounded to sweep the elections in the event of a rerun.
