Akwa Ibom State Governor Mr Udom Emmanuel has drawn a battle line with his predecessor, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Emmanuel at a grand endorsement rally Monday by the people of Eket Senatorial district held at the Onna Township Stadium said he would expose facts and figures about Akpabio’s administration if he was challenged.
The governor said he was ready to spend his personal resources to hire International, National and Local media to present facts to the world as only such avenues would convince the whole world about who is who in the state.
“I have heard things, and I want to challenge any who thinks he has the truth to come out, I will use my personal money to hire CNN and other international media, AIT, Channels, NTA and AKBC, let’s present facts to Nigerians, let’s see who would tell the truth and who will also tell a lie”.
“However the issue on ground is Akwa Ibom, it’s about the development of this state, it’s about our children in public schools who are excelling in international competitions, it’s about the price of garri that we have drastically dropped, it’s about the unity of this state which we believe in”.
He thanked the people of Eket Senatorial District for the endorsement and assured that the overwhelming encouragements from all parts of the state has indeed boosted his determination, not just to declare but to do more.
