Anietie Ekpong,, he media Aide to former Akwa Ibom governor, Godswill Akpabio, said his boss could not have said that former Deputy Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Chris Ekpenyong advised him to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ekpenyong alleged that Akpabio castigated Ekpenyong for deceiving him into defecting to APC.
He asked if Ekpenyong could establish where Akpabio had been alleged to have made the remarks.
“I’m not aware of the statement alleged to have been made by my boss. This is politics season, so many rumours are flying about, especially from sources one cannot trace.
“If I may ask, where was the statement made? Was it at a press conference, release, interview, rally, or where else.”
