“His Excellency, Deacon Udom Gabriel Emmanuel, the Governor, is my friend. I respect him as much as I know he knows God. I personally went to his office during one of the occasions I represented the President and the Presidency, and told him that if it had not been God, he wouldn’t be the Governor because we did whatever we could to remove him.
I respect him because God chose him to be the Governor. I accord him that respect, but to the extent that there could be an abuse on people.
I work very closely with Governor Udom Emmanuel, Senator Godswill Akpabio and Sen. Udoma Udo Udoma, because here is the Nigerian project and after which it is the Akwa Ibom project.”
