A’IBOM GOVT WITHDRAWS FROM AKISAN EVENTS

iReporters News

The Akwa Ibom State Government has announced its withdrawal from all activities organized by Akwa Ibom State Association of Nigeria, AKISAN in United States of America till further notice.

Subsequently, the state government delegation to the 2017 AKISAN  convention in Atlanta Georgia, USA, has boycotted the convention.

In a phone chat with our reporter, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Charles Udoh cited the politicization of the convention and infringement on the protocol of the state leadership.

AKISAN convention is a yearly congregation of Akwa Ibom indigenes in the diaspora for the promotion of indigenous culture, and galvanizing of professional interests for investments in the state.

This year’s event, according to the State Government, turned out to be an orchestrated political manipulation to embarrass the government and people of Akwa Ibom state for political reasons, hence the boycott.
