Onna warns against blackmail on Ephraim Inyang

Onna warns against blackmail on Ephraim Inyang
A socio cultural  group in Onna  Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state, “Onna village youth caucus” has warned desperate politicians in the state who are seeking for political relevance and appointment to stop dragging their son, Mr Ephraim Inyang to collision path with the Governor-elect, Mr Udom Emmanuel by trying the blackmail him for no cause.

In a press release issued by the group and signed by it President, Mr Daniel Nwa and Secretary, Mr Ekerete Jacob, the group said that Mr Ephraim Inyang does not have any resemblance of what the faceless and desperate food is ready political office seekers are trying to insinuate about Mr Inyang.

They described Mr Inyang as a humble, hardworking, loyal, trusted, and God fearing man who is not desperate for anything, but strongly believes in God who has made his selfless labour of love a reality that has led to the emergence of Mr Udom Emmanuel as the governor-elect.

According to the release, “the attention of the good people of Onna has been drawn to a malicious publication sponsored by desperate politicians and circulated on the online and print media against the sterling image of our dear son, Akparawa Ephraim Inyang.

The faceless group with unknown names under the aegis of Emancipate Akwa Ibom Movement in the said publication claimed Mr Inyang is constituting members of Transition Committees for all Local Government Areas in Akwa Ibom State. The group also took their falsehood to a very ridiculous extent by accusing Mr Inyang of boasting to have brought in one billion naira to the political campaigns of Deacon Udom Emmanuel, the Akwa Ibom State Governor –Elect, and to deliberately create disaffection in the polity, the unknown group claims Mr Inyang said Chief Godswill Akpabio’s grip over the governor Elect will not tarry.

As a body, we wish to state categorically that the people behind this satanic concoction and fluke write-up are out to cause discrepancy between the brotherly relationship between Mr Ephraim Inyang, Deacon Udom Emmanuel and Chief Dr Godswill Akpabio CON. The timing of this falsehood is also suspect as certain elements are trying to use the tools of blackmail to gain political power and relevance. 

We wish to educate this faceless group that it is only the State House Of Assembly that has the powers to approve the constitution of Local Government transition committees and not Mr Ephraim Inyang .

We also wish to confirm to the good people of Akwa Ibom State that Akparawa Ephraim Inyang is a man with excellent virtues and a highly disciplined and focused man, who will not sit out with drunks to boast of bringing one billion naira to the campaigns of Deacon Udom Emmanuel. It is pertinent also to remind this group that the funding of Udom/Moses Campaigns was raised in Uyo and Lagos at well organised fund raising dinners.

We therefore advise the desperate politicians who are behind this cheap blackmail to leave Mr Ephraim Inyang alone, as no level of blackmail they threw at him will motivate the governor-Elect to appoint them into political positions they don’t merit.

We hereby plead with our dear son, Mr Ephraim Inyang to forgive these mudslingers, ignore the phantom advertorial and continue in his good deeds as God will reward his sincere commitment and sacrifices. The release added.
