Akwa Ibom Gov Says EFCC Is Not A Thorn In The Flesh

The Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, has okayed the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), saying the agency is not a thorn in the state government’s flesh.

Emmanuel, who spoke during a media parley at the Government House in Uyo, said his government would continue to give the much needed support to the commission.

The governor while responding to questions from journalists said he has never been distracted by activities of the EFCC.
He said: “EFCC is not a thorn in the flesh of Akwa Ibom State Government. I have never been distracted by the EFCC. Even the meeting I had today with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo,tomorrow they will write that I went to beg him. Please, let’s allow the anti-graft agency to do its work.”

The governor added that the sum of N52billion would be needed to address continuous flooding on IBB Avenue and other areas in the Uyo metropolis.
While asking the people to be patient with his administration, Emmanuel said his government is on top of every situation.

The governor said he had used his properties twice as collateral to collect loan in order to pay salaries of workers in the state.
“I am not a magician. Be patient with me. Twice, I have used my properties as collateral to get loan to pay salaries. The Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs is here, you can ask him,” he stated.

Emmanuel advised civil servants to key into agriculture by planting cocoa instead of queuing in banks for pension after their retirement.
