You’ve Seven Days To Withdraw Threat To Akwa Ibom Gov – Group Tells Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate for 2023, has been ordered to rescind his former threat against Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel without hesitation.

Tinubu held a presidential rally in Uyo, Akwa Ibom’s capital city, on Monday. During the ceremony, the former Lagos State Governor made a derogatory remark about the governor.

Tinubu chastised Governor Emmanuel for inviting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to canvass support in his state.

He threatened to drive Emmanuel out of his Lagos house, but he will spare him because ‘they are one’.
The APC presidential contender also called the PDP Governor a “boy.”

“Akwa Ibom, that Boy was bring were brought Atiku here, was de call himself state Governor, tell him enough is enough! He lives in my backyard in Lagos; if no be say we be one, I would drive him home. You see that mansion he is living in; I would just use lizards, pigeons and scorpions and put them inside,” Tinubu said earlier.

In response to Tinubu’s outburst, the Akwa Ibom Integrity Alliance (AIIA) gave the APC presidential candidate and his associates seven days to retract the threats and apologize to Governor Emmanuel or face urgent legal action.

The failure of Tinubu and the organizers of the January 30, 2023 rally to voluntarily retract the unfortunate and unguarded threats to Governor Udom’s life after 24 hours, according to AIIA’s Chairman, Stephen Abia, made them conclude that the threats were real, premeditated, and seriously conceived.

The statement read: “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.”
