As a reputed public interest advocate /human rights activist in the non-governmental and nonpolitical sector, that drives to radically revolutionize Nigeria’s polity by schemas that enthrone morality, equity and fairness with development actions and advocacies, I write with authority to establish why I believe the trio of HE DONALD DUKE, EYO EKPO AND WOFAI EWA makes good sense for the needed positive change in our ailing democracy.
Unlike related posts I have seen about the aforementioned trio, I limit myself to strong reasons drawn from personal relationship and critical look at their character and content as noble candidates of the Social Democratic Party of Nigeria. This however is done without incline to any political party affiliation but based on how I see things apolitically without from critical angle.
Agreed that very few critics have ethnic /partisan biases against Donald Duke, which in rightful evaluation may fail logic or ideological test, it is nevertheless true that his governance “bests” as former CRS governor were and are still far better than his “worsts”, compared to his failed successors.
At least DON was organized, creative, adventurous, entrepreneurial, visionary and progress minded than his occasionally “sleeping on duty”, “crying and dancing” successors as critics say.
Further, while anti DON critics see DON as that “fine smart guy in power” that arguably “failed to develop Cross riverians”, pro DON critics still believe that Don put CRS in the world tourism map as Nigeria’s premier business investments and leisure destination.
Hence, Don should ever be thanked and celebrated for his conscious creation of viable opportunities, with relevant infrastructures and enabling environment to drive the vision, encourage healthy business links and competitions amongst local and international entrepreneurs, provide youth employment and education that eventually improved the state’s socioeconomic and political landscape during his tenure as CRS governor.
Similarly, Eyo O. Ekpo is one young intelligent, industrious, virtuous and learned icon with a positive mind and sociopolitical history to tell or credit his fame and merits in the sands of time. He is to me et al, a humble, realistic, zero tolerant to failure, humanistic and optimistic fellow that can’t be easily ignore in the call for progressive leaders to change CRS polity ; having served the state in executive and judiciary capacities as former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney general before.
No doubt that Eyo Ekpo has been sentimentally criticized by some people as not being patient to aspire next political season ahead. Yet, that to every right thinking person is no strong [genuine] logic to deter him from breaking through sentiments to assume power as the next governor of CRS State, messianically.
For Wofai Ewa, I have critically examined his intellect, emotion and willpower as my Facebook friend, colleague in the struggle to better humanity as activists and brother from another mother. My findings, on the account of evidence derived, analysed and concluded upon the merits of his vision and mission for the state, as posted on Facebook , leaves no doubt that he means well for our state. And together with Eyo O. Ekpo would make the best duo in changing governance story in the history of our state.
So, I encourage sundry in conclusion to ponder on the content and character of this article with the view to voting wisely, not just on the basis of political parties but on the merit of those who genuinely have credibility, vision and intellectual ability to rescue and restore the dignity, sanctity, sanity, pride and beauties of our currently ailed State.
Hence A VOTE FOR DONALD DUKE, EYO O. EKPO AND WOFAI EWA IN THIS 2019 ELECTIONS IS A WORTHY TICKET FOR EXCELLENCE AND QUALITY LEADERSHIP IN GOVERNANCE.
HAVE YOUR SAY!
