Sponsored Political Blackmails Can’t Distract Gov Emmanuel –Ekong Sampson
…Accord Party Chieftains Pledges Support Gov Emmanuel
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Political, Legislative Affairs and Water Resources, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Ekong Sampson, has assured that no amount of sponsored blackmail will distract Governor Udom Emmanuel from delivering on the 5-point agenda of the State Government.
Barrister Ekong Sampson stated this while playing host to members of the Forum of Chapter Chairmen of Accord Party, led by the Chairman of the Forum, Mr. Ekikere Joshua, who were in his office on a solidarity visit to reaffirm their support for the vision driven government of Governor Udom Emmanuel in Akwa Ibom State.
Describing the speculated demonstration by some youths against the proposed Akwa Ibom State Government Lodge in Lagos as a sponsored, politically motivated scheme, Barr. Ekong Sampson stated that no individual or institution that wishes to invest in any state in Nigeria can ignore the importance of having a strong presence in Lagos.
Barrister Ekong Sampson wondered why the good intentions of the State Government in articulating an investment climate for Akwa Ibom people could be so misunderstood by some, maintaining that some mischief merchants and political fortune-seekers were working desperately to misrepresent Government genuine intentions because of the build-up to 2019.
