Recently, a picture went viral that has generated a lot of condemnation from the public.
Yes, you guessed right, it's a picture of Mr Don Etim, the Commissioner of Works, kneeling to talk to wife of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mrs Unoma Akpabio during one of the Peoples Democratic Party campaign rallies in the state.
From feelers, this seem to be the rule rather than the exception, kneeling, bowing or prostrating for the wife of Akwa Ibom State governor, Mrs. Unoma Akpabio, is a common feature in Akwa Ibom State.
According to OsunDefender newspaper, those who do not tow this line often have their 'necks cut off politically' and are considered to be anti-Akpabio’s administration.
Many of the commissioners in the state cannot stand before Mrs. Akpabio to talk; they must either face a different direction or stoop low before her.
A Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Dr. Glory Edet, was recently seen fanning her during the presentation of the 2015 Appropriation Bill to the House of Assembly.
Similarly, a member in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, representing Mbo State Constituency, Mrs. Alice Ekpenyong, knelt before the governor’s wife at the Independent National Electoral Commission office, where they were being presented with the certificates of return in 2011.
Oh, well, I choose to be silent on this matter to save my head too o. Hehehe
