I’m Never Associated With Blackmails –Gov’s Aide
The Special Assistant to the Governor on Project Monitoring, Mr Raphael Anwanakak, has stated vividly that he has never, in any way, been associated with blackmails, as purported by some faceless fellows on the social media.
He stated this following an online publication by some faceless persons alleging that he launched attacks on his boss, Gov Udom Emmanuel, and the Deputy Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Princess Felicia Bassey.
Describing the publication as baseless and attempt to mislead the general public, Mr Anwanakak disclosed that he still remains focused in marketing and promoting the vision of Governor Emmanuel across board despite attempts to distract him. “I was curious as to know the identity and authenticity of the said publication but to no avail because no picture was used for the account but a tree.
“As someone that is focused and working closely with the Governor, I find it very comfortable to clear the air so that the general public will equally understand that this person is faceless and his allegations baseless and false.
“I am one man that has been in the system for so many years and my contemporaries within the government know that I am not associated with blackmails. I try as much as possible to project myself on a good platform for what I do.
“In 2014, I came out with the Sustainability Advancement Group in support of the immediate past governor now Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, and now I’m coming up with another group working willingly for the success of the Gov Emmanuel-led administration. So I can vividly say that I am not associated with blackmails and I have never done so to anyone.”
Mr Anwanakak stressed that he is focused on the delivery of the mandate given to the Governor by the people of the state, saying that his department is to ensure that every project and infrastructure awarded by this government since inception is perfectly executed.
The Governor’s Aide also stated that he is in a very good and cordial relationship with almost all the leaders in Okobo, some of whom he mentored, contrary to claims that he also sponsored some youths to met insults on leaders of his community, and thereby urged the initiator of the publication to come up with any proof to back up his claims.
He therefore called on perpetrators to desist from the habit of publishing things with the sole aim of tarnishing the image of others because “Whatever we do today will surely speak for us tomorrow.”
