ITU LOCAL GOVERNMENT CRISIS: ARCHIBONG PUTS THE RECORD STRAIGHT

The member representing Itu/Ibiono Ibom Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Dr Henry Archibong, has refuted the claim in a petition, “Lack of Due Process and Transparency in the Administration of Itu Local Government Council,” to the Speaker of the State House of Assembly by some members of Itu Local Government Transition Committee.

A statement signed by the Federal lawmaker read: “Ordinarily, I would have ignored such write up as it lacks substance, but for the purposes of putting the record straight and to clear certain doubts in the minds of my esteemed supporters and the general public, I wish to make the following clarifications: As a representative of Itu and Ibiono Ibom people in the House of Representatives, my duty is to provide for the people and attract governments’ presence to the area and NOT to engage in any activity that could lead to sabotaging the development of the local council administration in Itu or any other area for that matter.”

 

“Before my overwhelming victory to the National Assembly, my integrity had never been in doubt, which was why the people of Itu/Ibiono Ibom Federal Constituency came out enmasse and voted me into office. I, therefore, state categorically that I, HON. DR. HENRY OKON ARCHIBONG, Member Representing Itu/Ibiono Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, have never received any money from Itu Local Government Council for any purpose whatsoever. I challenge the petitioners to prove with any evidence my involvement in the subject matter and if that is done, I am ready to resign my position as member representing Itu/Ibiono Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.”

 

Dr Archibong further called on the general public to discard the allegation, in his word: “I call on the well-meaning indigenes of Itu/Ibiono Ibom Federal Constituency in particular and the general public to discard the said allegations.”
