Former deputy governor of Akwa Ibom State, Lady Valerie Ebe has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state that they cannot use cheap propaganda and deception to win support of the people and the state governor in future elections, despite the trick prior to the local government elections in the state.
Lady Ebe said she was not party to any act of imposition of candidates for the election and condemn the use of her name by the leaders of the party in the state to curry the favor of the state governor by linking her with a sponsored message congratulating the leadership of the party in the state.
Ebe who is the immediate past deputy governor of the state spoke to The Daily Times in Abuja, believing that those using her name without her permission should be educated enough to know that they cannot forcefully garner cheap propaganda for their selfish interest from the mouth of others;
saying that the party was using the name of the state governor as a cover up to treacherously hunt for their selfish and personal interest in the area against 2019 elections adding that she never attended any meeting and was never a signatory to any document congratulating the party.
She said “I had not attended any Mkpat Enin Elders Forum meeting subsequent to the fraudulently organised PDP primaries that led to the emergence of Mr. Ekanem Brown as the candidate of the party in Mkpat Enin Local Government Area,
and as such, I’m not aware and never part of any such meeting where a purported “Goodwill Message” was written and co-signed by me amongst the 20 signatories.
“I will never take it on a light note in subsequent times such fakeness and supposition is purveyed to portray my name.
The orchestrators and charlatans of such fiendish sham of masquerading should be properly guided by the impending consequences of such, subsequently.
“Nothing can be farther from the truth than this fabricated news item which is contrived to divert the attention of Mkpat Enin people and indeed the general public from the continual deception coined to downplay their rationalities,
and erode them of the fact that the process of choosing a popular, credible and widely acceptable candidate of the PDP for the December 2, 2017 Local Government Council elections was marred by fraud and irregularities.
“The good people of Mkpat Enin are not fools and inept as scornfully portrayed by the bogus report, and as such, they are fully conscious of such irregularities which were brewed into the primaries’ election.
“The self-acclaimed political gladiators and franchise robbers should be in the know that they can fool some people sometimes and not all the people all the time. Sooner or later, they will be paid with their coins”.
