CONGRATULATIONS RT. HON. MIKE IROM ETABA FOR YOUR ALL ROUND VICTORY
I wish to happily and publicly congratulate my dear brother, friend and member representing Obubra/Etung Federal Constituency at the National Assembly of Nigeria; Rt.Hon. Mike Irom Etaba on the twin judicial verdicts upholding his victory at the just concluded 2019 National Assembly pools thereby affirming him as the undisputed winner of that election.
Ordinarily as a fellow contestant in that same election under the platform of Social Democratic Party (SDP), I should have expressed my unwitting reservations by engaging all available, legitimate and constitutional tools but I chooses the path of restraint and fear of God.
Therefore I wish to unreservedly and categorically acknowledge the hand of Almighty God in the entire exercise that produced Hon. Mike Etaba as member House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I dare to remind Hon Mike that, your election is a confirmation that, “Power truly belongs to God… and He giveth it to whoever He willeth.”
Secondly, I wish to strongly emphasize that I hold no grudge against you. I had since accepted defeat in the spirit of true sportsmanship.
Thirdly, I don’t see election or politics as a do or die affair but as a game that must produce a winner and lossers in the end.
Lastly as a Christian and as a true believer of the tenets and injunctions of the Holy Bible, I truly join my voice with all our constituents, particularly all the sons and daughters of Obubra nation to pray for God to endue you with abundant grace and wisdom to pilot the affairs of your office thereby resulting in effective, articulate and credible representation of the people.
I wish you well my brother.
Once again, congratulations!
