Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has portrayed as false, deceptive and negating, an ongoing report by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the United Kingdom, putting Akwa Ibom as one of the states in Nigeria dangerous for individuals to go in.
Talking during a national workshop composed by the Conference of Directors of Public Prosecution (DPP), held at the Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort on Thursday, Governor Emmanuel thought about how an express that the entire world bears witness to be second biggest with flood of remote direct ventures, could all of a sudden end up being hazardous for individuals to go in.
He said “Money is a coward, it does not go to where it does not feel safe. If foreign direct investments are coming to Akwa Ibom, how come the state is not safe?”
The Governor approached the central administration of Nigeria to rise and protect her nobility and uprightness, not enabling pariahs to run the nation down.
“It doesn’t begin and end in Akwa Ibom but has to do with Nigeria. We have to learn to defend our integrity as a people and as a nation. It should not be an individual state matter but a national issue.”
“There is no nation on earth that is crime-free. Nigeria cannot be more unsafe than all the other places in the world where people are killed on a daily basis,” Governor Emmanuel further stated.”
The State Chief Executive anyway pledged to by and by compose FCO and talk parameters that would plainly repudiate in their report.
The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, had prompted its natives against venturing out to around 21 states in Nigeria over what it named as security issues.
