I’ll expose Akpabio if provoked – Gov Emmanuel



Human Rights Lawyer Condemns Attack on Akpabio's Hometown, Seeks Buhari's Intervention

Akwa Ibom state Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has threatened to expose the ills of his predecessor and former Senate Minority Leader, Chief Godswill Akpabio if provoked.

This is even as a factional state chairman of APC, Dr Udoma Ekarika, his deputy Mr Emmanuel Udoh and other prominent members of the party yesterday defected to the PDP

Emmanuel who made the threat yesterday at a reception for him by the people of Eket Senatorial district in ONNA said he could be forced to break his silence on the administration of the former governor if Akpabio and the APC continue to make unfounded and baseless allegations against him and his administration

“There is a difference between falsehood, truth and facts but I will not delve into falsehood because I have the facts. I have been silent all these while but could open up and let’s see who will tell the truth” The Governor threatened.

Emmanuel said he remained committed to the Akwa Ibom project and would continue to work towards the unity, development and prosperity of the state.

The Governor stated that he would not be frustrated in the development of the Ibaka Seaport as a strategic facility for the economic development of the state adding that his achievements in health, education, sports and roads were not for politics but for prosperity.

He also announced that he would formally declare to run for a second time as governor on Friday even as his scorecard would be made known that day.

Ekarika who defected alongside the DG of the APC governorship campaign organisation Mr Sony Udom described the APC in the state as disorganized adding that he was defecting with the only reasonable people in the party to the PDP.

“APC in the state is dominated by bad people and so I decided to bring out the few good people and all of us have now joined the PDP. We are ready to work for the good of our state with Governor Emmanuel.

“From my interaction with the Governor I have discovered that he is a good material. Emmanuel is a material and is good enough enough for us. We don’t want any other person for now.” He said.
