Senate President, Akpabio, Threatens To Sue Blogger, Jackson Ude, Over Unfounded Allegation

The President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio has threatened to sue the publisher of Point-Blank online newspaper, Jackson Ude, whom he described as “itinerant literature of blackmail” for raising false narrative about him.
In a statement today, December 6, by his spokesman, Hon. Eseme Eyiboh, the Senate President expressed surprise at Jackson Ude’s imputation of bad motive on plans by his friends and well-wishers for his birthday.
Eseme Eyiboh said that Jackson Ude’s claims that the funding of the birthday is coming from the Senate and MDAs, has no iota of truth in it and challenged the author to show evidence “or else, gear himself for a date with the law for damaging the reputations of otherwise respectable persons in good standing in the society.
“Mr Jackson Ude should know by now that, being a fugitive cannot shield a serial blackmailer from the long arms of the law.
Eseme Eyiboh who identified himself as a pivot in the coordination of the birthday affirmed that it was a purely private initiative from the friends and associates of the President of the Senate who consistently over the years come together to celebrate the timeless legacies of Akpabio, the destiny child.
He said that Jackson Ude who is not a friend or associate could not have been privy to this yearly show of solidarity and uncommon brotherhood to a renaissance man.
“Mr Ude who is certainly not a friend nor an associate of the President of the Senate has cooked up imaginations that extend the bounds of fantasy to apparently buttress his ranking in fiction writing.
“Unfortunately, in pushing his story on the plans that friends have for the Senate President, Ude has in his write-up encroached on the personal confidentiality of some of the friends of Senator Akpabio. It is a regrettable act of indiscretion picking up names of genuine friends of the President of the Senate in the hatchet job of character assassination of the distinguished President of the Senate and his close associates.
“As one of the friends deeply associated with the plans of the birthday, I affirm that the assertions of Ude including the tale of mopping funds from the Senate for the birthday are a cocktail of fabricated lies for which no serious person should rivet attention to.
“The birthday plans of the President of the Senate are well thought out plans from friends and associates from within and outside the National Assembly and funded from private sources even without the input of the President of the President.”
Eseme Eyiboh called on all men of good reasoning to discountenance what he described as “the frivolities of Mr Ude” which he said were aimed at distracting from the plans to celebrate an uncommon man of destiny.
