Missing Budget: APC Begs AKSG To Protect Ita Enang
The Akwa Ibom State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has appealed to the Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, to wade into the crises rocking the Special Assistant to the President on Senate Matters, Barr Ita Enang.
Speaking on a radio interview monitored in Uyo, Engr. Ita Awak the APC spokes person said it would be unfortunate if the State governor failed to help save Ita Enang from his present predicament.
“We cannot allow our only son in the presidency to be vilified and rubbished. Akwa Ibom State government should rise up and protect Ita Enang.
Even if what he did was wrong, it is our responsibility as a state to protect the only voice at the corridors of power which we can call our own.”
Ita Awak who lamented that another son of Akwa Ibom decent, Chief Edet Nkpubre had earlier failed to get support from the then governor, Godswill Akpabio when he vied to contest as deputy national chairman, said the present government should not allow Ita Enang to incur wrath of the President.
He said the PDP government under Chief Godswill Akpabio did not show love to Akwa Ibom people by siting the Federal Polytechnic in Essien Udim instead of Ibiono Ibom local government area, and asked people of the state to support APC.
It could be recalled that the State government had recently begged President Buhari to forgive and pardon Ita Enang amidst calls for his sack, following the discovery of forgery and theft involving the national budget.
