• Plots to Stop New Speaker, Lawmakers from Reconvening

Embattled former Speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke has perfected plans to use the Department of State Services to disrupt lawmakers loyal to the new speaker, Rt. Hon. (Sir) Nse Effiong Ntuen from reconvening tomorrow.

Security sources available to Akwa Ibom INFO, disclosed authoritatively that the plot was perfected in a secret meeting arranged by the former assembly helmsman at the official residence of the State Director of the DSS situated in Ewet Housing. “Mr. Luke concluded the meeting around 8pm, the meeting lasted for over 2hours”, the source added.

Another source confirmed that the former Speaker was confident about disrupting the new speaker and other lawmakers from reconvening. “He was boasting that he has the backing of the DSS operatives, just like the scenario that played out last Monday to shoot sporadically, block other lawmakers from having access to the assembly complex.”

“He has given the names of some lawmakers to us, that we should do everything possible to stop them from entering the premises but we will try to keep within our processes and procedures.”

Asked what the next step would be if the former speaker succeeds in stopping lawmakers loyal to the new speaker from reconvening tomorrow, the source who pleaded anonymity said: “He has already planted mercenaries to cause chaos and thereafter accuse the select lawmakers of planning violence.”

Recall that last week, the embattled speaker led a team of brigands backed by some security operatives sympathetic to him to manhandle Hon. Idongesit Ituen. He was later impeached.

Tribunal Chides PDP Nat’l Legal Adviser, Emmanuel Enoidem Over Misconduct

Published

on

By AmanamHillary Umo-Udofia

A mild drama ensued on Thursday at the National/State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, when People’s Democratic Party National Legal Adviser, Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem was disgraced by the tribunal Chairman for gross misconduct and contempt of court.

The three-man panel led by Justice W. O. Akanbi at the resumed sitting of the tribunal dismissed an application brought by Assam Assam (SAN) counsel to Hon. David Lawrence for extension of time to reply the petition filed by Hon. Charles Sunday Ebongho and the All Progressives Congress against the declaration of Hon. David Lawrence as the winner of Eket State Constituency in the just concluded elections.

Shortly after the tribunal gave its ruling and struck out the first respondent from being a party to the petition, Enoidem who did not announce his appearance at the tribunal confronted the panel that the ruling was inappropriate. Angered over the development, the tribunal Chairman ordered him to sit down as he does not have the power to speak over the matter. “Who are you?” The Chairman queried. “This Honourable tribunal does not recognise you”, he further added.

Counsel to the first respondent Assam Assam (SAN), thereafter intervened and apologised for the actions of the PDP National scribe. Apparently embarrassed by his conduct, Enoidem apologised to the tribunal.

Drama started again when the tribunal called on the second petition filed by Hon. Kufre Akpabio and the All Progressives Congress against Hon. Pat Ifon, Peoples Democratic Party and INEC as first, second and third respondents respectively, Enoidem announced that he was holding brief for counsel to 1st Respondent, Solomon Umoh (SAN).

Enoidem immediately claimed that the petitioners were not interested in prosecuting the case to the amazement of the panel and other parties. Chairman of the Panel fumed and called on counsel to the second and third respondents to speak about the case, which they answered in the affirmative that the petitioners were diligent in their prosecution of the matter.

The chairman then queried Enoidem, that he should have consulted with other parties since he is appearing for the first time. “This tribunal is embarrassed with your behaviour, you should have consulted with your learned colleagues before making such contemptuous claims. It is totally unacceptable”, the chairman added.

Enoidem again apologised for the second gaffe before the tribunal adjourned the matter for the next sitting.
