Akwa Ibom Governorship 2023: Senator Bassey Albert finally speaks
The Senator Representing Akwa Ibom North East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Bassey Albert Akpan has described the poster trending online, with his picture vying for 2023 Governorship election as the work of evil men.
In a Press Release on Wednesday, Senator Albert noted that those behind the posters were trying to create unnecessary tension in the State and urged Akwa Ibomite to disregard the poster as Second term was yet to begin.
He advised those behind the said poster to desist from heating up the polity.
The statement reads:
The attention of the Distinguished Senator Bassey Albert Akpan, representing the good people of Akwa Ibom North East (Uyo) Senatorial District and Leader of Akwa Ibom PDP Caucus in the National Assembly has been drawn to a fake poster trending online, with his picture, for a 2023 ambition for the governorship of Akwa Ibom State.
However, we will be quick to say that this is the handiwork of some enemies of progress who sat down to design this in order to create tension in the polity days after the Distinguished Senator got re-elected and is yet to even commence his second term beginning on the 9th of June, 2019.
We will like to be emphatic here that the said poster is not in any way authorised or known to the Senator that is currently trending. By benefit of hindsight and intelligence gathering, we are aware of the quarters the poster is emanating from and the possible sponsors of the said poster but will advise them to desist forthwith from their sinister political intentions.
The Distinguished Senator is a total PDP man who is in tune with the fact that after elections comes governance and His Excellency, Gov Udom Emmanuel needs the support of all and sundry to administer the State without any ingredient of distractions or overheating of the polity through a too early ambition nursing even as the Senator is very focused in sustaining his effective representation as the 9th Assembly unfolds for the general good of his people.
We urge members of the public to discountenance the trending poster as it is the work of evil men.
