Gov. Akpabio sets brothers against each other


In furtherance of his desperation to impose the current Secretary to the Akwa Ibom State government, Emmanuel Udom on the people of the state, Governor Godswill Akapbio has moved against the ambition of his immediate past Commissioner for Finance, Bassey Albert by inducing Bassey’s brother, Ime Albert to join the gubernatorial race.

Sources told us that a lot of money exchanged hands in the process.

Sources in the state said that Akpabio approached Ime with sums of money with the aim of setting him against his brother and weakening their home base.

While political analysts in the state are watching to see if the latest attempt on the intelligence of Ime, who has allegedly been deceived by the governor more than once before, some observers are of the opinion that it would be impossible to erode the support base of the former commissioner who already received the support of his family as well as their Ibiono Ibom area.
