-As Enoidem Reaffirms Zoning at Event
-Enyiekere Goes on Rampage
Saturday, the 4th day of September, 2014, will remain memorable to Hon Savior Enyiekere, Executive Chairman of Ika Local Government Area, who organized a youth summit and empowerment program for youth of the area.

The event which was also designed as a platform of support for the governorship aspiration of Mr Udom Gabrail Emmanuel, Secretary to Government, turned metamorphosed into a political carnival.

The Special Guest of Honor, Barr Emmanuel Enoidem who spoke eloquently on the need for the people of the area to support Mr Udom Emmanuel due to his unequalled experience in leadership, was dismayed at the absence of Mr Gabrail Toby, member representing Ika in the state House of Assembly. "If I knew that Toby is not here, I wouldn't have come in the first place..."

The highpoint of the event was when Barr Enoidem was confronted with the issue of where House representatives should go, and the second term aspiration of the incumbent by Hon Marshal Udosen, who apparently knelt down to make a case for Hon Emmanuel Ekon and Hon Savior Enyiekere, Enoidem said explicitly that he was in Ika because of Udom Emmanuel. "But since truth must be told, the House of Rep seat goes to Abak, while the assembly seat is for Etim Ekpo, but that is an issue that will be discussed on a later date..."

The chairman of Ika Local Government Area who used the event To formally declare his intention to run for the Etim Ekpo/ Ika House of Assembly seat in 2015, against the prevailing zoning formula in the area, which favors of Etim Ekpo, also displayed his treacherous nature at the event. Information has it that at the event, Hon Enyiekere donated the sum of 2m Naira, but took back his money as soon Barr Enoidem spoke concerning the House of Representative and Assembly seats.

The youth were only left with the 2.2 Million donated by Barr Enoidem, Hon Emmanuel Ekon, and Mr Uduot Jack, Chairman of Etim Ekpo Local Government Area.

In a related development, it's been gathered that Hon Savior Enyiekere had gone on rampage, getting back all the cars and Motorcycles he gave to some of his supporters who are currently not supportive of his House of Assembly aspiration. According to one Mr Douglas Inyang, "he used some thugs who maimed and brutalized me before collecting the motorcycle from me... He said I was spotted at Hon Gabrail Toby's house, but I was there on errand. Since he has accused me wrongly, I have no other option than to support Toby..."
