Ini Ememobong: Akwa Ibom Colossal Shoes of Fortune
Every author has some peculiarity of descriptions of his subject in context of analysis. In this wise, Comrd. Ini-Ememobong is one subject but with different narratives that must dovetail into tales of greatness, succour, philanthropy, sympathy, passion and empathy.
Those who do not like him, magnify it, shrug up and exclaim—there he is again! I, for my part, know very well how I can bring about this movement and this exclamation. It would happen immediately if I were to begin here, as I intended to do, with: “Rome has its Corso, Naples its Toledo”—“Ah! that Ini Emenobong; there he is again!” they would cry; yet I must, to please my fancy, continue quite quietly, and add: “But Uganda have Idiamin, Ghana had their Kwame Nkrumah, and South Africa their Nelson Mandela.”
In the words of Sun Tzu;
”The control of a large force is the same principle as the control of a few men: it is merely a question of dividing up their numbers and knowing the right approach to follow suit.
Indirect tactics, when efficiently applied, are inexhaustible as Heaven and Earth, unending as the flow of rivers and streams; like the sun and moon, they end but to begin anew; like the four seasons, they pass away to return once more.
Now a General. The general is the bulwark of the State; if the bulwark is complete at all points; the State will be strong; if the bulwark is defective, the State will be weak”. Comrade Ini Ememobong, popularly known as the “Street Governor”, is one of the few citizens of our dear State that has got my back with his humanitarian gestures and affection for just system/or “the society” as you may call it.
Ini Ememobong giving attributes and his push for Akwa Ibom egalitarianism have made me to give a valid conjectural to this assertion “No matter how cloudy the muds, the lining of a Silver remains dazzling”. Generosity is not a behaviour but a way, Point; when once is in you to give, you will always give. And that what Ini Ememobong is known for across the state. He has been a colossal shoes of fortune to a good number of Akwa Ibom sons and daughters that come across his way, and this has elevated him above his contemporaries. Ini Emenobong has remain a joy to watch in the spectrum of Akwa Ibom State.
Just like the words of TP Hodge, Ini Ememobong has represented a substantial purpose in lives of many Akwa Ibom sons and daughters other than title or pertained to Party lines.
Not only by the way of the juxtaposition of his duty bolt actions. Comrade Ini Ememobong has been a blessings to the entirety of Akwa Ibom State especially the youths and the beginners. A shoe of fortune to whosoever that comes his way.
Ini Ememobong is one man that has learned to differentiate benovelence and politics. He learns to differentiate the line of holistic generosity to that of party social benefits. His Humane, sagacious, jovial sociability ability, capacity and competence has won more glads and draw nigh the fate of Fortune to the street of Akwa Ibom and has facilitated more souls winning to the Umbrella Platform.
Thus the energy radiated by the good omen like Ini Ememobong in securing a future and fortune not only to partymen but to the wholly of Akwa Ibom sons and daughters by the way of Humanitarian Outreach is a worthwhile momentum of a round stone rolled down a mountain thousands of feet in height.
