EFCC in­dict­ment of Udom ma­li­cious – A/Ibom govt

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ini­abasi Umo, Uyo

The Akwa Ibom Gov­ern­ment has de­scribed as ma­li­cious, the in­dict­ment of Gov­er­nor Udom Em­manuel by the Eco­nomic and Fi­nan­cial Crimes Com­mis­sion over the pur­ported with­drawal of N1.7 bn from the state’s trea­sury.

The Com­mis­sioner for In­for­ma­tion, Charles Udoh, in a state­ment yes­ter­day, said the gov­ern­ment would not be dis­tracted by what he called a “poorly scripted drama by the EFCC”.

He stated the state gov­ern­ment would con­tinue to do all within the am­bits of the law to pro­tect the in­tegrity of gover­nance.

He said the state gov­ern­ment had in­sti­tuted a le­gal pro­ceed­ing against the EFCC at the Fed­eral High Court, Uyo and would re­main fer­vent in its de­ter­mi­na­tion not to be dragged into a pub­lic dis­course on a mat­ter “that is patently sub­ju­dice.”
