Mr Emmanuel made the statement on Monday during a state-sponsored religious ceremony – the Annual Akwa Ibom State Solemn Assembly – an event meant to usher in peace and unity in the state for the New Year.
Also reported was that the governor sent a stern message to those whom he termed as mischief makers in the state.
“In 2017, any Akwa Ibom son or daughter, if you have been given appointment anywhere, thank God for your appointment,”the governor said.
“If you use your appointment to come into the state and cause disunity, I can reassure you I have the full assurances of the youths, any idiot who will come forthwith to make any nonsense proclamation in the state, the youths will not let him go.”
The governor stated that those who were taking his humility for granted and that will not be tolerated in the New Year.
“As a good leader you must show humility, but let no one take that for granted in 2017. It shall not be tolerated,”
“Youths, do you agree with me?” The governor shouted. “Yeah!” The crowd responded.
The governor revealed to the congregation that he is The Oracle of God in the state
“I know that God will show mercy to us as a people. “Let me warn, those who perpetuate all forms of mischief in our state will not benefit from the mercy of God this year,”
“Whether you say 'amen' or not, I am talking as the oracle of God “Any mischief maker will not participate in the mercy of God this year.
“Clearly, it could be raining here, but does not rain on the other road, which means to whom God will show mercy He will show mercy.
“All those that spread falsehood, let me warn you, if you don't repent, the mercy of God will not reach you,” the governor added.
In attendance was the immediate past governor of the state, Godswill Akpabio, the president, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Olasupo Ayokunle, and several other Christian leaders in the ceremony which took place at the Ibom Hall grounds, IBB Avenue, Uyo
