The Rude and Insolent First Lady, Unoma Ekaete Akpabio

The Rude and Insolent First Lady, Unoma Ekaete Akpabio

Unoma Ekaete, or Ekaete Unoma, Akpabio thinks just because she is married to a mad man, she has the right and the authority to insult the people of Akwa Ibom State. Maybe someone needs to let her know that in the culture of the Ibibio nation, it is an abomination for a person of her caliber to go into a church and start insulting her elders, some of whom are old enough to be her parents.

A few years ago when she succeeded in stealing the CRARN Center from Mr. Sam Itauma, many Akwa Ibom people chose to remain silent because they were of the opinion that her stealing of the CRARN Center would turn her into a happy wife. Apparently, it hasn't.

Listen to her: “I don't have that kind of patience like my husband to take insults and abuse, patience is something you cannot toy with because one day it will explode,” adding, “ If you don't like my face or his face, manage us until we go.''

Who does Ekaete Akpabio think she was addressing? Was she addressing her maids? Was she talking to her drivers? I am surprised she has just found out that no one in Akwa Ibom State likes her face or that of her husband, because of all the trouble and nightmares they have given to the people.

Again, hear her: “Is the Government House your birthright? You have ruled the State, another person will soon finish and another will take over; are you the owner of Akwa Ibom State? I don't know where it is going to, but I know it is going to Eket Senatorial District. All the women are following me and I am following the governor.”

If she resided in Akwa Ibom State, she would have known that no one in Akwa Ibom State is against any gubernatorial candidate coming from Eket Senatorial District. What the people are against is the madness of her husband to think that he can single-handedly pick someone as his successor and impose on the people of Akwa Ibom State. That is what the people are against and whether Ekaete, or Unoma, Akpabio likes it, the people will continue to oppose and they will succeed in making sure that her Satan husband does not succeed in putting his stooge in the Hilltop Mansion.

It is obvious this woman is becoming erratic. However, I give her some credits because, unlike her mad husband, she is able to see the handwriting on the wall that her cup is running over, though what she fails to figure out is that if she is not careful, she might end up spending the rest of her time in prison.

Ekaete, or Unoma, Akpabio really believes that no one knows about her involvements in the death of some women in Akwa Ibom State. She believes that no one knows how she is conniving with her husband to launder the resources of Akwa Ibom people. She thinks everyone has forgotten the strong-arm tactics which she applied to steal the Children Center from Sam Itauma, who established the Center. If she was a bright a woman, she could have remained quiet and shut her mouth, instead of coming out to insult the people of Akwa Ibom State.

The people of Akwa Ibom State have tolerated enough of her husband's follies. She has to understand that they are not ready to stomach her own. So far, let her shut her mouth and enjoy the money looted by her husband and stored in foreign accounts for her future use. Until she runs into hiding with her husband on May 29, 2015, I don't think the people of the State will have any problem seeing her. What they want is to hear her.

Unoma Ekaete, or Ekaete Unoma, Akpabio shut up! Stop insulting Akwa Ibom people.
