Gov Udom Emmanuel

In a statement, the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Uwemedimoh Nwoko, states the allegation raised by one Leo Ekpenyong against the governor and the tribunal judge, was false and unsubstantial.

The state government says Governor Udom Emmanuel has not had any contact directly or through a proxy, with the tribunal judges since they were appointed. Part of the statement reads. “We state most categorically and without any equivocation that there is absolutely no scintilla of truth in Leo Ekpenyong’s wild and unsubstantiated allegations. “His Excellency, Governor Udom Emmanuel does not know and has never met Honourable J justice A. M. Yakubu or any other Judge on the Panel.

His Excellency has made no personal contact or through a proxy with any of the Judges.” “It is most uncharitable and unconscionable for Leo Ekpenyong and his paymasters to attempt to rubbish and bring to disrepute the sterling reputation and character of Governor Emmanuel.” “Let us equally state here that it is not only morally reprehensible but also legally culpable for Leo Ekpenyong to so unconscionably attack the name and character of innocent Judges who accepted to serve the nation in a critical national assignment.”

“Barrister Leo Ekpenyong is known to be a serial blackmailer. He was known to be the mastermind of all the petitions against Chief Godswill Akpabio, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and now Minister of Niger Delta Affairs to the EFCC and ICPC until Akpabio succumbed to his blackmail and handsomely paid him to recapitulate.”

Meanwhile, the state government has challenged Leo Ekpenyong to publish factual evidence to buttress his allegation, else it will institute legal actions against him at the expiration of seven days.
