A’Ibom Group Gives Tinubu 7 Days To Withdraw Threat Of Their Governor’s Life
REACTIONS have lagged behind the candid words made by All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Senator Ahmed Tinubu on Monday during a rally in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
When responding the same Monday, Governor Udom Emmanuel expressed dismay that Tinubu had mistreated his principal, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, and threatened his life rather than selling his manifesto to the populace.
The Akwa Ibom Integrity Alliance, AIIA, issued a statement in response yesterday, giving Tinubu and his accomplices seven days to withdraw their threats and apologise or face immediate legal action.
In the statement by its Chairman, Stephen Abia, AIIA said failure of Tinubu and the organisers of the January 30, 2023 rally to voluntarily retract the unfortunate and unguarded threats to the life of Governor Udom after 24 hours made them to conclude that the threats were real, premeditated and seriously conceived.
He said: “We are hereby constrained to state as follows: That we consider as worrisome, the threat to the life of the Governor of Akwa Ibom State in the shabby outburst by Mr. Tinubu.

“That we take serious exception to such unwarranted, unfortunate, and uncontrollable height of vituperation by Mr. Tinubu on our state and people as the governor, Mr. Emmanuel without mincing words, is the face of Akwa Ibom State.
“Subsequently, we are giving Bola Tinubu and all his co-conspirators seven days to retract the threats and apologise to the government and people of Akwa Ibom State or risk immediate legal actions.
“That having been accorded the peaceful, serene and secure atmosphere to campaign in Akwa Ibom State, and having been graciously accorded the use of our state facilities by the same Governor Emmanuel, it is crystal clear that the affront was premeditated and out of heavy ill-will and grudging contempt.”
