Welcome to the friends of Nigeria @friendsofnija.blogspot.com.ng
Philosophy they say is the general and fundamental nature of reality, existence, knowledge and value. It is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or imagine. And in relation to Akwa Ibom state and the Senate Minority Leader and former Governor, Chief, Dr Godswill Obot Akpabio, the state of things as they actually exist, rather than it is imagine in several quarters regarding the misappropriation of the state’s funds under his tenure can be best understood first, before being appreciated.
In his book, “The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events)”, Author Lemony Snicket stated that “Those unable to catalogue the past are doomed to repeat it” In the light of this, it is expedient for us all to cast our minds back to what Akwa Ibom Sate and her people used to be in time past. What was the economic viability of the people or their developmental capacity?
A people traumatised and raped by the blunt of the war they didn’t start, limited by dogmatic traditional beliefs and customs, handicapped by absolute lack of capacity and opportunity, it became absolutely difficult if not completely impossible for the people to stand and raise their heads along with other ethnic groups who have long established a culture of wealth creation and the support system to sustained progressive development. And this I believe motivated the governor to adopt his social system of government, where he was doling out money to support talents, capacity and making millionaires of many young people and indigenes of the state. He realised, like a father that for his children to grow and become ably independent, a support system needs to be in place.
