The Akwa Ibom Sate Government has debuked rumours of renaming the Godswill Akpabio International stadium in the wake of the change of political allegiance by the former Governor.
A statement issued by the State Commissioner for Information & Strategy, Charles Udoh attributed the false report to the handiwork of some unscrupulous elements. According to the Commissioner, the report is not only false but mischievous with an intent of misleading the unsuspecting public and generating skewed sentiments.
Charles Udoh went further to state that the Udom Emmanuel led Government of Akwa Ibom State is laden with high level of integrity and would not descend to such lowly levels of renaming the stadium.
He reiterated the State Government’s commitment in continuing its single-minded pursuit of the avowed goal of people-oriented governance and sustainable development of Akwa Ibom State, adding that the Akwa Ibom Project is beyond any personal interest.
