BREAKING : AKAN OKON REACTS TO EFCC INVITATION
Akan Okon, The Honourable Commissioner for Housing and Special Duties in Akwa Ibom State, has reacted to widespread rumour on the media, alleging that he has been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).
Speaking through Bokime Asuquo his Personal Assistant on Media and Publicity, the Honourable Commissioner said he “would not have dignified such infantile and baseless allegations with a reply, as it holds no water, but for the innocent public who may be misinformed, it is needful to put the record straight.”
The statement further reads that “For the avoidance of doubts, Mr Akan Okon has at no point, been invited by any anti-graft agency, including the EFCC, formally or informally. Such invitation is needless and not foreseeable, given the fact that he has never engaged in any underhand dealings, whatsoever, from his time as Commissioner in the Ministry of Finance.”
The Government Official further asked the general public to disregard the rumours which he said were “insinuations as mere political mischief aimed at tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of himself”
