Udom (Akwa Ibom state governor) is a mistake that must be corrected in 2019 – Godswill Akpabio


Former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Godswill Akpabio, said he regrets imposing Emmanuel Udom as the governor of the state in 2015. Udom took over as governor of the state in 2015 after Akpabio completed his two-terms as governor.

The relationship between Udom and Akpabio hit the rock, after the governor refused to defect to APC like his predecessor.

Apologising before a crowd who came to welcome him after attending his mother-in-law’s burial at Enugu on Sunday evening, said Emmanuel was the greatest mistake he made in a hurry, and asked the people to forgive him.

”Udom (Emmanuel) is a mistake that must be corrected in 2019. All hands must be on deck to ensure that the mistake is corrected for a people-oriented leadership under the ruling All Progressives Congress at the centre.” he said

He also said that the way the ruling APC will take over leader of the state in 2019 will be synonymous with the way Adolf Hitler invaded Poland.

“Recently, I had an occasion in Akwa Ibom State and this is what happened. I went just to make a floor declaration; others do it in the social media, others just sit in their offices, some do it by text messages that they have changed platform,  what we call party. But in my own, I just decided to do it in an uncommon way because they call me uncommon transformer. It was watched in 59 countries and somebody asked what happened there, and I said just how it happened in Poland. When they asked Hitler’s minister for information how was the war in Poland? He said Warsaw saw war and war saw Warsaw.

I will say that in the Ikot-Ekpene arena, when I stepped out, this is my first function after that, Warsaw saw war and war saw Warsaw. We can’t talk politics in the church but in 2019 Warsaw shall see war and war shall see Warsaw. The return will be victory. May God grant us all victory” he said


  1. Politicians…, everything they alter from their mouths I take with a pinch of salt. If he had actually made an error, he should go to God for forgiveness. As for the people get your PVC and elect the right candidate. Imagine a fed senator quoting a govt that committed arguably the worst genocide in history to buttress his points. In Europe there would have been a protest to tell him that he insulted their heroes and you can guess what become of him. May God help Nigeria.

  2. Godswill Akpabio is playing his polictics to his favour and not for the masses. If he had a credible mindset for the State’s (Akwa Ibom) polity, why did he impose the candidate to the State with all his antics. He denied Oro Nation the opportunity that was meant for them and he is now saying he made a mistake because Mr. Udom Emmanuel refused to decamp to APC. Mr. Godswill Akpabio has to confess all his misdeeds done by him to the State in particular else the future will continue to hunt for him. Nobody should take Godwill Akpabio serious in whatever he says because his motive and action are selfish and tribalistic.

  3. Godswill Na wa oh. So if Udom had defected will Godswill say he (Udom) is a mistake? See how politics can make us reason? I remember in 2014/2015 Godswill saying Udom Emmanuel was the best candidate now he has gone back to his Pupu his vomit and saying he Udom is a mistake. Are we not sure that Godswill is the mistake?
