Stop Distracting Me, Sam Ikon Warns
The member representing Etinan Federal Constituency and Chairman, Inter-parliament Committee in the Nigeria’s House of Representative, Rt. Hon (Elder) Sam Ikon, has warned detractors and his opponents to desist from distracting him from his legislative duties.
Sam Ikon said that even with the series of paid blackmailers he has chosen not to be distracted from his legislative duties as God and the people of his constituency mandated him to do.
“I choose not to be distracted because God has not declared my seat vacant! People should stop distracting me from doing the great legislative duties that God and the people of Etinan Federal constituency mandated me to do,as this is just my midterm in a journey of a thousand miles, yet my success story is already becoming so intimidating to my detractors and opponents despite being in his first term. With God on my side, I promise to do more for my people as the custodian of their mandate and for the total transformation of my Federal constituency‘’
Likewise, Forum of Group Leaders in Etinan Federal Constituency has made a case for the continuity of Rt. Hon Sam Ikon in the Federal House of Representative citing his superlative performance during his stay as Speaker and his few years as member representing Etinan Federal Constituency.
The group in a Press Release signed by Comrade Awak mentioned some of the achievement of Rt. Hon. Sam Ikon during his stay at Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly to include building of 4 bungalows for less privilege, donation of 45 cars for his constituents, training of over 1050 youths on vocational fields, 54 projects in different communities across the 64 villages of his constituency, passed over 15 life touching bills example Local government administration bill, initiated joint sittings with other states, ensured smooth robust relationship with the Executive arm of government, ensuring staff of the Assembly service commission are empowered and refresher courses instituted for legislators and legislative Aides.

The Statement says Rt. Hon. Sam Ikon has facilitated employment of over 45 Constituents in Federal Service and other MDAs. The group warned against repeating the mistake of the past.
“We can’t repeat the mistakes of the past by standing against a man with vast managerial, administrative and legislative prowess just because most people feel disenchanted and believe Sam has not been able to touch the lives of everyone at the same time.”
“We can’t afford to say no to a man who has so far made us proud in the green chambers, transverse over 15 countries on legislative oversight functions, a man that has already donated a state of the art medical facility with modern medical equipments and motorbikes to the people of Nsit Ibom.”
“We can’t afford to say no to a man who did his first empowerment and constituency briefing in less than two years in office and is set to repeat it, we can’t say no to a man who is about to commence free medical outreach across the 31 wards of Etinan Federal Constituency, giving hope to the hopeless and bringing back joy to the downtrodden”
