Akwa Ibom APC disclaims Umana’s suspension



The Akwa Ibom state chapter of All Progressives Congress has disclaimed a purported suspension of Mr Umana Okon Umana, Minister for Niger Delta Affairs from the party.


A release signed by the state chairman of the party, Hon. Stephen Ntukekpo who made themself available to the public confirmed that the Minister was never suspended by any leadership level of the party.


Describing the circulated letter of suspension issued against the minister as fake, the Chairman in his release noted that the signatories to the letter were unknown.


“My attention has been drawn to a fake letter purportedly written by unknown persons and circulating on the social media space about the suspension of the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs in the person of Obong Umana Okon Umana.


“Ordinarily, I would not have wasted time responding to this unholy lie peddled by some elements who seek to attract attention but not for the fact that the Honourable Minister is a true party man and a great supporter of a unified party in the state.


I hereby state with unequivocal authority that the Honourable Minister was never and has never been suspended in his ward, chapter or the state”, the release read partly.


While describing the information contained in the earlier circulated letter as a misleading lie and urging members of the public to disregard the same, Ntukekpo further urged members of his led party to remain focused on the party campaigns.
