IF YOU MISS THE POINT IN THE INI/ONOFIOK’S “SHOW”

Folks say it was a way of show, when it was actually a show of way. Folks say it was about the next election when it was about the next generation. If you missed the point in Speaker Onofiok Luke’s and Comrade Ini Ememobong’s bestmaning the Press Secretary and driving-the-driver scenario of last weekend, then you may probably miss the way to the future. The duos were showing the way to an impending political future – respect and simplicity. You either go the way or you go extinct.

There will come a time in this country that money will so lose value that it will be incapable of buying people. At that time, Nigeria shall attain the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals and extreme poverty will be conquered while basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing shall be met by the majority. At that time, to impress and endear the people, you will need much more than money.

At the moment, the greatest need of the black world is food and other material things. Because we’re hungry over here, we very much easily sell our birth right like the biblical Esau.

It’s not our fault that we become servants and slaves to a people elected and paid to serve us neither is it our fault that we celebrate the same people who impoverish us and deprive us of our rights as humans and our right as citizens. After all, a hungry man doesn’t want right, he wants food to survive.

Like I’ve always prophesied, this country will not always be like this. The spell will be broken and we will become fed up as a people someday. We will become inquisitive and ask the right questions about crucial issues. We will relieve our tormentors and install new order. We will be free people at that time.

At that time, power will return to the people and elections shall reflect the will of the people. Leaders shall be people who know the way to the electorate’s hearts, ones who acknowledge the dignity of all men and emphasize on the equality of the human race. At that time, money shall only be a last resort.

While majority of our leaders are blind to the impending future, the duo of Rt Hon. Onofiok Luke and Comrade Ini Ememobong are already in that future. They know that the supreme currency at that time shall be the ability to give a sense of importance to more people, letting them know that they matter. That’s exactly what the duo exhibited last weekend to their aides.

Of all that Speaker Onofiok Luke has done and will do for his Chief Press Secretary, Kufre Okon, there is almost none that will live in Kufre’s heart till the end as the simplicity of having his boss as his best man on his wedding day, shooting the gentle and humble Kufre to unexpected limelight and fame.

In accepting to be his Chief Press Secretary’s Best Man on his wedding day, Speaker Onofiok Luke found the best way of showing that his aide isn’t just his servant, that he is his friend. He cemented his relationship with him, made an indelible mark and proofed himself a brotherly leader. How much money would have afforded this pride of place?

For over a year, I have been a member of The Onofiok Luke’s Mentorship Hub and the much money that I have benefited as gesture from Mr Speaker isn’t more than ten thousand naira yet Mr Speaker is one man I will personally follow till the end of the way. The man bought me with a currency higher than money.

Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly Speaker, Onofiok Luke serves as best man at wedding of his Press Secretary

At our first meeting with him in 2017, he invested over five hours to listen to all we had to say. He shut the door, dismissed every other visitor, prioritized the moment, bared his heart, listened to all we had to say and answered all our questions. He knows us by our names, reaches out when he can, shares a table of meal with us, shares a bus, buys movie tickets, shares a cinema time, takes us on beautiful journeys, joins adventurous trips and does all the the fanciful and romantic things that will naturally make you fall in love with him. That’s the way and style of the man and his way is the way to the future. Follow it or miss it.

To be a leader in the next generation, you have to go the Onofiok way of buying people with currencies worth more than money- mutual respect for everyone regardless of age, class, tribe, religion, status and might. In the next generation, poor people shall be those that have only money to offer.

The truth is, any idiot can offer money. What do you have beyond money and position? That’s the point that Speaker Onofiok Luke and his brother, Comrade Ini Ememobong made over the weekend. How was that a show? Answer me please!

Endiong John.

Viral homeless veteran and couple who created GoFundMe account for him knew each other for a month before creating fake story and may now face 10 years in jail

Published

on

Last year, a homeless veteran went viral after a New Jersey woman claimed that he used his last $20 to buy her gas when he met her for the first time and noticed she was stranded.

 

The story went viral and touched hearts all over the world. The New Jersey woman and her man then went on to start a GoFundMe campaign which raised over $403,000 for the homeless man. But the relationship soured when the veteran took them to court this year and accused them of refusing to Grant him access to the money, and instead using it on themselves.

 

Well, it has now emerged that the homeless veteran and the New Jersey couple are all frauds and knew each other for one month before they faked that viral touching story.

On Thursday, October 15, Kate McClure, 28, Mark D’Amico, 39, and Johnny Bobbitt Jr, 34, were all charged with second degree theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception in New Jersey.

They all now face between five and ten years behind bars.

The couple, McClure and D’Amico, were released on bail after turning themselves in and will return to court on December 24.  Bobbitt is still in custody in Philadelphia awaiting extradition to New Jersey.

The couple was not required to pay anything to post bail. Of the $403,000 they raised and $360,000 they netted after GoFundMe fees, there is not a single dollar left.  They gave Bobbitt around $75,000 but blew the rest on expensive trips, casinos, expensive bags, and cars.

GoFundMe has promised to reimburse the 14,000 people who contributed to the campaign.

The story began to fell apart in August this year after Bobbitt complained to a newspaper that the couple “stole” the money and left him to return to the streets. But the couple claimed Bobbitt was trying to squander the money and they were helping him manage it properly. They accused him of trying to slander them because they wouldn’t let him blow the money away.  They also swore they had not spent a single dollar from the donations on themselves.

Prosecutors then carried out an investigation and found that not only had the couple blown all the money, as has been suspected for months, but their story was fraudulent from the beginning and Bobbitt, who had been seen as their victim, was in on the plan all along.

Scott Coffina, Burlington County Prosecutor, said at a press conference on Thursday:

The paying it forward story that drove this fundraiser might seem too good to be true. Unfortunately it was. The entire campaign was predicated on a lie.

She did not run out of gas at an I-95 off ramp and he did not spend his last $20 to help her.

D’Amico, McClure and Bobbitt conspired to pass off a fake, feel good story that would compel donors to contribute to their cause and it worked in a very big way but it was fictitious and illegal and there are consequences.

Speaking on how the couple met the homeless man, Coffina said:

Johnny Bobbitt used to hang out near an underpass and this off ramp happens to be near a Sugarhouse casino and they frequented it and they ran into him on their trips there, befriended him, gave him $10, some coffee or some food.

Prosecutors found a 2012 Facebook post made by Bobbitt in which he claimed to have helped another woman in North Carolina by buying her gas after she too became stranded. There is no trace of it ever happening.

On Thursday, Coffina said he hoped the shocking story would not stop others from donating to genuine good causes in the future.
