IPG Warns Senator Akpabio Against Discrediting Senate President’s Office

Published

The Ibomites for Progressive Governance (IPG), a burgeoning socio-political organization, has issued a stern warning to Senator Godswill Akpabio to refrain from undermining the dignity of the esteemed office of the Senate President.

The group’s caution comes in response to remarks attributed to Senator Akpabio, wherein he purportedly claimed that his wife, Ekaette Akpabio, was denied entry to the Government House in Uyo when she attempted to deliver a letter requesting a courtesy visit to former Governor Udom Emmanuel.

During a reception held in his honor in Ikot-Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State, Senator Akpabio allegedly asserted that his wife was left waiting at the Government House gate for an extended period without access to the premises.

In a swift response, IPG’s National Secretary, Mr. Chris Effiong, denounced Senator Akpabio’s statement as “a baseless fabrication,” emphasizing that Mrs. Akpabio is not a messenger and urged the Senator to exercise restraint in his public statements.

The group refuted the incident described by Senator Akpabio, asserting that there is no evidence to support his claims. They challenged him to provide proof of the alleged occurrence, highlighting that the former First Lady typically travels with a team of aides, including media personnel who would have documented such an incident if it occurred.

IPG expressed deep concern over Senator Akpabio’s apparent animosity towards former Governor Udom Emmanuel, warning against the propagation of intentional falsehoods that tarnish the reputation of public figures.

In conclusion, IPG called on Senator Akpabio to desist from fabricating malicious narratives and acknowledge the importance of upholding the dignity of the Senate President’s office, a position of national significance.
