Mixed reactions as Akwa Ibom state Councillorship aspirant takes nomination form to shrine and consults his deity.
Just like the way some people consult their pastors and imams when aspiring for political offices, this man has simply gone to consult his god for breakthrough.
The man identified as Mr. Friday Etim Ukim is a councillorship aspirant under the PDP for the upcoming 2020 Local Government Elections in the state.
It’s gathered that Mr. Ukim, is an aspirant of Ward 7 in Urueoffong/Oruko Local Government Area.
He visited the shrine/dirty in his ward on Thursday, August 13, 2020 to present his nomination form and pray for his victory in the coming election.
The councillorship aspirant, dressed on singlet and nickers, placed the two forms in front of the deity and prayed.
After doing that, he also knelt before the deity with a bottle of dry gin and palm front as tradition demands and prayed.
I am a christian and I have no problem with traditional worship as far as you don’t use your religion to cause havoc in people’s lives.
But some people on social media are already abusing the man with words and calling his a desperate politician.
What do you guys think about this matter?
