Governor Emmanuel sacks aide over ‘vulture’ comment

Governor Udom Emmanuel has sacked his Honorary Special Adviser on Grassroots Mobilization, Elder Enefiok Ekefre.

The letter terminating Ekefre’s appointment was signed by the Permanent Secretary, Government House, Dr. Nathaniel Adiakpan.

“I am directed to inform you that with effect from 1st March, 2022, your services will no longer be required. With this letter, your offer of appointment as Honorary Special Adviser, Grassroots”, the letter reads in part.

Ekefre’s sack is not unconnected to his open affiliation and support to the governorship course of Senator Bassey Albert Akpan. The governor had on January 30 anointed his Commissioner for Lands and Water Resources, Pastor Umo Eno as his preferred successor.

TheMail Newspaper learnt on good authority that though the termination of appointment took effect from March 1, 2022, the reason it was brought to the public on Tuesday March, 8, 2022 (one week later) through the governor’s media team is because of Ekefre’s comments last weekend in Eket.

During a rally organized by Youths of Eket Senatorial District in honour of Senator Bassey Albert, Ekefre while addressing the gathering made comments alluding that the governor is running a ‘vulture-like leadership’.

“Don’t allow anybody deceive you, leadership is not about sharing poverty. If you build a gigantic house but your children don’t eat it is not good because there is no patriotism with empty stomach.

“There are two types of people in leadership. One is the hen. The hen scratches the ground to provide  food for its chicks. Another type of people of in leadership is the vulture. When the vulture picks food from the ground, it flies up. It is only when it finishes eating the food (devouring the intestines) before it comes back. We don’t want vulture again in Akwa Ibom”, he said.
