‘Boy’ Comment: God will deal with Tinubu, says Martha Emmanuel
Wife of the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Dr (Mrs) Martha Udom Emmanuel has reacted to the recent statement by the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu where he referred to Governor Udom Emmanuel as “that boy”.
Speaking at the PDP governorship campaign rally in Eket on Thursday, Mrs Emmanuel said her husband is too big to be anybody’s ‘boy-boy’.
TheMail Newspaper reports that Mrs Emmanuel stated that Governor Udom Emmanuel is known everywhere in the world and has entered places the former Lagos governor cannot enter.
“Somebody will have the…I don’t even know what to say…to come and vomit rubbish to a man that has been ordained by God, a man that the whole world celebrates, a boy that is known everywhere in this world, a boy that can enter places where the old man cannot enter.
“The Bible says “fathers, do not provoke your children to anger”. He (Asiwaju) has provoked his children. But I am not surprised. You see, when failure is staring at your face, you will look for a way to vomit that venom on somebody else. But, it is not going to be on the head of my husband, neither on the people of Akwa Ibom State.
“When David came out to challenge Goliath, the same thing that happened on Monday is what happened in David’s time. Goliath looked at David and said ‘who is this small boy? You are coming to challenge me?’ David now answered him, ‘you this uncircumcised philistine, today, I will cut off your head because I come to you in the name of the Most High God.’
“What played out on Monday is what has been playing out in the spiritual realm. Don’t take it for a joke when he (Asiwaju) said he wanted to send scorpions to your Governor’s house. It is what he has been sending and God did not allow it to happen.
“The governor represents the people of Akwa Ibom. When they send scorpion, scorpion will go back to the sender. They send lizards, lizards will go back to the sender. How I wish, he did not come to Akwa Ibom and make that statement.
“I pity him, because God is going to deal with him. Our God the Most High God that knows how to avenge and fight battles will deal with everyone of them that has conspired against this state for no reason.
“If Governor Udom Emmanuel did not bring Atiku, who was he supposed to bring? Is Udom Emmanuel not in PDP? Is Atiku not in PDP? It is not everybody that will be boy-boy for him. My husband is too big to be boy-boy to anybody.”
