Our attention has been drawn to a concocted piece of gibberish currently floating on a section of the social media platforms where some agents and purveyors of blackmail, true to their nature, manufactured a story purportedly attributed to the Wife of the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Umo Eno, with the headline “ Mrs. Eno Mobilizes Women Leaders Against Senate President, Akpabio”.
We wish to state categorically that the story is false and represents the handiwork of political jobbers and agents of disunity, who obviously are shocked by the level of collaboration His Excellency Pastor Umo Eno, and by extension, Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Eno, have forged with both President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR and the Senate President, Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio, CON.
Moreover, it is out of character for Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Umo Eno to speak in the manner that has been falsely reported, as she has deep respect for former Governors of the State and will work with and respect all wives of previous Governors and political office holders across party lines. Also, Her Excellency would not be dragged into the asinine posturing of political jobbers.
We challenge the writer of the false and malicious report to produce audio evidence where Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Umo Eno, was quoted to have made the statement during the meeting she had with Female Stakeholders on Friday, December 1, 2023 at the Banquet Hall of Government House, Uyo.
We wish to state, for the umpteenth time that politics is over and it’s time for governance. We advise the agents of blackmail to look elsewhere, because Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Umo Eno, will continue to support her husband’s efforts of uniting the people of Akwa Ibom to ARISE and usher in the Golden Era of our progress and growth.
Members of the public should ignore the malicious and false story.
Press Secretary to Her Excellency,
Pastor Patience Umo Eno,
Wife of the Governor of AKwa Ibom State
December 3, 2023.
