Former Senator representing Akwa Ibom North East, Sen Anietie Okon has let hell loose on his counterpart, a former Senator of the area too, Sen Ita Enang, accusing Enang of being a political slave boy to the Northern brothers without tangible development attracted to the State.

He stated this during an exclusive interview session with Conference of Online Publishers Akwa Ibom State (COOPA) today.

According to Sen Okon, Sen Enang is a born slave with an unusual slavery spirit and no meaningful project attracted to Akwa Ibom State.

“Ita Enang is a born slave. He has shown an unusual spirit of slavery. Ita should tell us what has been his contributions to Akwa Ibom State.

“The Calabar/Itu Road project Ita Enang has been shouting about on radio is merely a scratch to deceive the people.

“There is no job that you’d point to Ita Enang, that is completed. He is doing the biddings of the Northerners.”

The Former Senator said he condemns Sen Enang’s act of playing to the gallery in favour of the North as it concerns his stands on the due of oil benefits of the South-South as oil producers in the Country.

“I want to openly accuse Ita Enang of doing the bidding of the Northern people. I condemn in its entirety, his statement on 13% derivation.

“I fought for the 13 % Ita Enang is talking about. I kicked against 12.5% derivation because I felt skeptical about ‘12.5’ as a figure and the controversy surrounding it.

“Ita Enang is a beneficiary of the rot in the NDDC. He should mention one thing he has done as a legislator or adviser to the President.”

The former Senator expressed dismay over the situation of Petroleum sector in the Country with the President Mohammed Buhari at the helms of affairs.

“The Minister of petroleum is the president. And he must be held responsible for the entire mismanagement in the petroleum sector.

“The President came through false promises and he does not have the capacity to manage Nigeria. Removal of fuel subsidy is a sham.

“The entire subsidy programme in Nigeria is a scam. The entire positions in the petroleum sector, from top to bottom, are occupied by northerners. And what do we have? Failure! Not only that, we also have the Northerners in other services. The result is very clear; incapacity of the Buhari government to provide the basics of life for the citizenry.”
