The Akwa Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio, has described as false and mischievous allegations that he supported  and advised the president to extend emergency rule and collapse all democratic structures in the three Northern eastern states of Borno Yobe and Adamawa, saying “I did not call for the complete emergency rule.”

Akpabio, in a statement, signed by his Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr Aniekan Umanah, said that “at no time did Governor Akpabio offer such an advise nor granted any interview on the issue.”

The statement claimed that matters of emergency rule are vested on the President who is also Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. “No governor has any say on such decisions, as it is the prerogative of Mr. President and the Senate”, the statement added.

The statement views the allegation as a calculated attempt to malign the person and office of the governor, charging Nigerians to disregard the wild rumour as he was one of the PDP governors who applauded the president for retaining the democratic structures in the affected states and could therefore not work against the continuation of the democratic structures in the states.

Governor Akpabio, the statement added, “sympathizes with all victims of the unfortunate insurgencies and prays for an end to the security challenges facing the nation, while calling on the security agencies  to continue to do their best in ensuring that the abducted girls are released and made to  reunite with their families alive.”
