Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State alleged, on Thursday, that the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) plans to cause mayhem in the state, but that it will all end in futility.


The governor, who said he has been briefed on the alleged plans, described the antics of the ruling party as a deliberate ploy to distract his administration from delivering her mandate, prior to the 2019 general elections.

This is coming a day after Sen. Bassey Akpan, who represents Akwa Ibom North-East, raised a point of order on the floor of the Senate, alleging that there was a grand plan by the APC in Akwa Ibom State to disrupt the 2019 governorship election in the oil-rich state.

Governor Udom who was at the State House, Abuja, to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, told  State House Correspondents that while God is the ultimate giver of power, he was not afraid of losing re-election next year.

He said anyone planning violence and war in Akwa Ibom was wasting his time as people of the State have resolved to be peaceful and will remain so.

He, however, stated that such threats were being monitored even at the level of the presidency, and he believes there is no cause for alarm.
