Senator Bassey Albert , through his campaign organisation, has distanced himself from any disrespectful publication to the person and office of Gov Udom Emmanuel.
An internal memo entitled: “Our Supporters Must Not Insult Our Governor”, frowned at any emotional outburst that may put the governor’s office or person in disrepute, following Emmanual’s recent choice of a preferred aspirant.
The memo, which was signed by the campaign spokesman, Chief Usoro I. Usoro , PhD, read in part:
“It has come to the attention of our Principal, Senator (Obong) Bassey Albert (OBA), and the entire leadership of Akwa Ubok Abasi Campaign Organisation that since Gov Udom Emmanuel made known his preferred aspirant, some persons have reportedly been posting some negative articles online purporting same to emanate from our supporters.
“Consequently, Senator Albert, while appreciating the continuous tremendous love and support, has appealed that none of his true supporters should either in words or actions disrespect the person or office of our governor”.
It also said: “Senator Albert holds the governor in high esteem and would never disrespect him or encourage any insult to his person and office”.
OBA then enjoined his “teeming supporters…to remain peaceful, respectful but resolute and focused on the goal, while allowing that same God of yesterday to take charge of tomorrow”.
