BOAT MISHAP: REMAINS OF LATE AKWA IBOM BORN NOLLYWOOD ARTISTE TO BE BROUGHT HOME

Published

By

His Excellency, Pastor Umo Eno, Governor, Akwa Ibom State, is aware of the tragic boat mishap, which occurred a few days ago, on River Niger, involving some Nollywood actors and other supporting crew members while on a trip to a movie location.

One of the victims of that accident, Ms. Abigael Edith Frederick was a quintessential example of our young people who have harkened to our clarion call for them to Arise and shine.
She was a 24 years old graduate of Theatre Arts, who had found her passion as a make- up artiste.

We are deeply saddened by her painful passing and on behalf of the Government and people of AKwa Ibom State, we sympathize with her family, the Nollywood community and her friends and colleagues over this sad loss.

We have also followed and read the reportage, especially on the social media platforms surrounding her burial and wish to state categorically that government was not informed of the circumstances that led to her burial.

His Excellency, Governor Umo Eno, has consequently directed that her remains be brought back to her family for a proper and decent burial in Akwa Ibom State.

As the famous theme song of the Liverpool Football Club goes, the bereaved family will not “walk alone”.

May her soul rest in peace.

Akwa Ibom State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reinstated the suspended Chairman, Mr. Stephen Ntukekpo, and his Deputy, Dr. David Umo Essien, following the resolution of internal issues within the party.

Dr. Cyril Effiong Enemi, the Acting State Chairman of APC, announced the reinstatement during a press conference in Uyo. He explained that the suspension was prompted by allegations of mismanagement of members’ welfare. However, after careful consideration, the party’s leadership resolved the matter and reinstated the affected officers.

Enemi stated, “The substantive Chairman Ntukekpo and his Deputy, Umo Essien, will now return to their positions, while I also return to my former position as the Eket Senatorial District chairman of our party.”

He emphasized that the crises, which had led to factionalism within the party since July 2, had been resolved and prevented from escalating further.

A communique endorsed by the State Executive Council (SEC) of the party and signed by 32 officials expressed confidence in Ntukekpo’s leadership and assured of a united front to ensure the APC’s success in the upcoming general elections.

Additionally, the party’s state chapter extended congratulations to President Bola Tinubu and Senate President Senator Godswill Akpabio as leaders of the party at the national and state levels.

The communique highlighted the measures taken by the SEC to move the party forward, foster peace, and enhance unity at all levels. It included a vote of confidence in Chairman Ntukekpo and a commitment to support his leadership style in maintaining peace and unity within the party.

The SEC resolved all previous disagreements amicably, and warring factions pledged to withdraw statements made on social media platforms that fueled tensions.

With the reinstatement of the Chairman and Deputy Chairman, the APC in Akwa Ibom State aims to consolidate its internal unity and strengthen its prospects of capturing the state in the forthcoming general elections.
