The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang may likely to be sacked by the President, Muhammadu Buhari before the end of the tenure or he may not make it as his (President’s) appointee in the 2nd term of APC government.
The President has since resumed work after the elections have invited all the SSA for meeting in the Aso Rock including Ita Enang’s Counterpart Umar Ibrahim El-Yakub, SSA on National Assembly (House of Representative) who was appointed by January this year 2019.
Senator Ita Enang was not invited for the meeting. In what seems to be a crack between some of the Presidential Aides and the president. From a very reliable source to our correspondence who pleaded anonymity, Ita Enang has been booked as a traitor and might be shown a way out before the end of the tenure.
The president frown at the senator’s performance in the just concluded state elections and Presidential, where APC lost in Akwa Ibom State and from the result Mr. Ita Enang could not deliver the Party even in his LGA to APC because of his personal interest.
At the just concluded governorship election, Ita Enang was defeated by Senator Bassey Albert of PDP where the duo are from the same LGA with more than 36,000 votes. PDP scored 36,068 while APC scored 7,179.
The president is made to believe that Ita Enang was working against Nsima Ekere so as to be free to contest for the governorship in 2023.
Nsima Ekere would have wanted to exercise his constitutional right of second term at appointed time that would have thwarted Enang’s ambition.
Ita Enang represented the Itu and Ibiono Ibom Federal Constituency of Akwa Ibom State in the House of Representatives from 1999 to 2011 on the platform of PDP. He was also elected Senator for the Uyo (North East) Senatorial District of Akwa Ibom in the 2011 to 2015 Federal elections on the same platform.
According to some of his men who declined to be mentioned said he will return to his former party at the appointed time.
