But he sooner exposed his intention and target.
Again, hear him: “recently, there has been a barrage of publications detailing the sleaze going on at the all-important Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) where Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio is the supervising Minister.”
Certainly, Akpabio possesses the zeal, zest and commitment to any project he sets out to do. He did it in Akwa Ibom state and was applauded by all. And in prosecuting his development agenda wherever and whenever duty calls, he never and will not brood incompetence and fraud. The foregoing may have instigated the bad blood from his haters as they prefer cutting corners to the detriment of the people for whose benefits positive developments are intended.
Pretentiously, Ekong wrote: “I cannot fathom how Senator Akpabio became an invaluable asset to the APC federal government.” When a man is blinded by his questionable ambition he hardly fathoms anything progressive. That must be the lot of people like the writer.

Akpabio, whatever you say of him, is smart, he went off mark in castigating the person and character of the minister on the issue the quest for forensic audit of NDDC. He didn’t mince similar insults on the members of the Interim Management Committee of the Commission.
From the Ag Executive Director of Projects through the Ag Executive Director of Finance to the Ag MD, whom he described as “men, assembled solely by Akpabio.”
