Former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Russia and a chieftain of the PDP in Akwa Ibom, Chief Assam Assam,SAN, has advised Senate President,Godswill Akpabio to learn from history and avoid mistakes he would live to regret.

This is after Akpabio is reported to have boasted that he would ensure that Akwa Ibom State is taken by All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2027.

Responding in an interview, Assam, said that the Senate President had always “talked before he thinks” adding that he is “not worried about it at all because anybody in this political clime can wake up and make a statement like that.“

“Of course, the President of Senate is my friend and I am satisfied that I know him and would have been shocked if he didn’t make that statement. In my writeups, I keep telling him ‘you talk too much and you talk before thinking.”

He went on to frown at Akpabio’s statement, questioning how he would bluntly state that he is out to change the political narrative of an entire state, an act he deemed impossible.

Appraising Governor Umo Eno’s development strides in the past eight months, Chief Assam said,
“Governor Umo Eno from the beginning had said that he would rather under promise than under deliver.”

He relayed how Eno set out on the mission to run an all-inclusive government, which has so far been achieved through creating different fora where stakeholders made inputs into his ARISE Agenda.

Assam also commended the Governor’s politics of inclusion which has projected himself as a governor of the state rather than governor of a particular party, by extending the olive branch to people from other political parties in the state.
