The Honourable Commissioner for works in Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Ephraim Inyang has refuted the false rumours that, nine (9) commissioners in the state have contracted the covid19 pandemic.
The commissioner decried the that, it is pathetic that when every hand is supposed to be on desk to fight the deadly pandemic, some people in the state are on social media spreading false news and praying for people to die.
“The news going around that 9 commissioners in Akwa Ibom are sick of Covid-19 is a blatant lie from an insane blackmailer, who is sponsored.
I want to state here categorically that all the Commissioners in Akwa Ibom State executive council are in good and sound health conditions and helping the state Covid-19 Committee fight to prevent the spread of the Pandemic in the State.
To state the obvious, on Friday the 17th of April, we all gathered at the Exco chambers where we had the usual state executive meeting with the Governor.
And on the 19th, we all came out for college meeting, on the 24th of April, which was FGPC, all members attended observing social distancing order by the Federal Ministry of Health without an exemption.
Why would someone cook up lies at this particular time where we all need encouragement, support, and positivity to keep us going day by day?
As the Commissioner In charge of the ministry of works handling the ongoing construction of the Isolation Centre at Ituk Mbang, I’ve had my Colleagues stop by every day to see the progress of the work done.
I challenge the writer to name the 9 commissioners and the location where they are taking treatment”.
