Mr. Ekikere Umoh, the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor, in a statement made available to Naija News, Monday in Uyo, said that there was no truth in the claim that he has resigned his position.
He described the story of his purported defection and subsequent resignation as “concocted piece of a malicious hatchet job and a pack of lies”, appealing that it should be appropriately ignored.
Umoh revealed that the deputy governor is in New York, United States of America, where he is representing the governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel as a special guest of honour at the 2018 International Convention of Ati Annang holding and was yet to return to the country.
The deputy is quoted in the statement to have said through a telephone from New York that, “I have not resigned. I have no reason whatsoever to resign or jump ship from a government that is both responsive and performing optimally, while giving practical meaning to democratic dividends for the people of Akwa Ibom. I cannot, and will not jump ship”
According to the statement, Moses has called on Akwa Ibom people, both at home and in the Diaspora, as well as the PDP family in the state to remain resolute and committed to support the Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, to take Akwa Ibom to the next level.
