It’s no longer news that since Akparawa Ephraim Inyang, the native of Oniong in Onna LGA declared his intention to contest for the Senate, and give the people a new phase of representation, there have been orchestrated fights from left, right, and center.
This is because, a good number of them have heard about the history of the gigantic Ephraim and probably realized that, he has never gone out to look for something or stepped in a ring to fight for anything and failed. At least, they have never heard that about Mkpisong Ephraim.
Even in the Synoptic Gospels, all of the Jewish groups; Pharisees, Herodias, Chief Priests, and Sadducees were united in their opposition to Jesus. They fought him to death because they knew what he was made of and what he possessed confer Matthew 21:23-27, Mark 11:27-33, Luke 20:1-8).
All these happened to Jesus because His opposition knew His carriage and that, his way was a win-win.
Agreed, the former Chief of Staff can’t in any way be compared to Jesus Christ, however, what he’s passing through today in the hands of those he staked out even his life for is likened to what Jesus Christ passed through in the hands of those he loved and trusted so much.
In the opposition fight, even the Akwa Ibom PDP is not left out. Their recent public display of shame shocked even the least of all.
So PDP actually wanted to come for equity but refused to do so with a clean hands. Hypocrisy, right?
That’s, among all the microzones in the state begging for justice, it’s only ESD that the PDP leadership in the state is so after and interested to zone senate position to a certain federal constituency but paid a deaf ear to other federal constituencies in the state and even the governorship seat that the Itu/Ibiono people are begging, crying to them every day to zone position to.
Meanwhile, this is the same party Ephraim has been loyal to over the years, paid his dues, and even supported by all means.
But it’s not strange nor surprising. When God wants to take someone his grace is sufficient unto to the next level, that’s exactly what’s always expected. Attack and unwarranted fights will definitely come.
But in all these, one thing is certain. Mr. Inyang-Eyen remains the choice of the people of ESD and no amount of fight, blackmail, or backstabbing will change the plans of God in him, which is to be the next senator in Akwa Ibom South senatorial district.
They can only fight him but they can never control or detect his political future.
