Akwa Ibom State Governor, Godswill Akpabio has called on security agencies to look out for anyone planning to truncate the country’s democracy by threatening to form a parallel government if they lose the forthcoming general elections.

The governor said this when the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, paid him a courtesy visit at Governor’s Office, Uyo. He urged security agents to place politicians, who utter such statement under surveillance, to stop them from carrying out their threat.

He lamented that most of the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan were subsumed in false propaganda by the opposition. He however hoped that future general elections would be anchored on tangible achievements by different political parties.

Congratulating the IG on his recent appointment, Akpabio said that his track record has been impressive. He also said that the IG’s visit has shown his determination to ensure credible and peaceful elections, where no lives in the state would be lost. He noted that Akwa Ibom was always peaceful because of the joint corroboration among security chiefs in the state.

While speaking, Abba hinted that he visited the state to discuss with zonal officers from Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Rivers and Ebonyi states to see the efforts they had made to change the attitude of all police officers in applying the ethical and valued policies of the force.

According to him, his visit was to see the efforts being made to change policing strategy, intelligence policing to ensure democratic laid down policing.

While in Akwa Ibom, Abba said he would seize the opportunity to interact with leaderships of political parties in the area. He enjoined the police as stakeholders to ensure credible and peaceful elections next month.

  1. Parallel government is a possibility if there is irrefutable evidence that some people have rigged the February election! Ringing an election is stealing and depriving the party that the majority of the electorate have voted for. We don’t want thieves running the administration of Nigeria.
