The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Akwa Ibom said it was difficult for Governor Udom Emmanuel to extricate himself from the conduct of Mr. Ndueso and his other aides.
According to the party, the president had been constantly attacked and ridiculed on the social media by many of the governor’s aides.
“APC is dissatisfied with this lame measure and the Government’s response to the consistent media attacks at the office of the President and the willful attempt to ridicule and denigrate President Muhammadu Buhari,” the party said in a statement issued on Saturday through its spokesperson, Edet Bassey.
“Taking cognizance of Buhari’s fatherly disposition to Udom as seen in his various private visits to the President and many official trips he has undertaken with Mr. President, it is difficult to comprehend whether Udom is acting in concert with his aides to denigrate the President or they are on a frolic of their own,” Mr. Bassey said, adding that the governor should apologise to the president.
Imaobong Akpan, a supporter of Mr. Buhari in Akwa Ibom, reacted to the controversy thus, “It is both ironic and incredible as this same president is seen to be favourably disposed to the Akwa Ibom state governor.
“A situation where Governor Emmanuel’s media aides will sing praises of their boss being a ‘favoured’ and a regular guest to Mr. President because of his (Mr. Emmanuel’s) ‘capacity and intelligence’, while denigrating the president, on one hand, has become a situation of extreme recklessness and demands a drastic action,”
