Members of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly have been described as fraudulent, inefficient and non- existent.

They have been accused of condoning the fleecing of the treasury by the executive arm of government and extorting bribe from Governor Udom Emmanuel.

Senator Bassey Albert stated this in a radio interview programme, the Peoples Parliament monitored in Uyo on Tuesday.

The Senator stated that the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly has paid deaf ear to clamours that they should check the excesses of the executive arm of government led by M. Udom Emmanuel, and are only existent to collect bribes and renege on their constitutional functions.

Senator Albert who spoke through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and member of the publicity subcommittee of his campaigns, Obong Idorenyin Umanah, accused the House of Assembly members of receiving bribe of 2.6 billion naira from the Governor to maintain sealed lips, rather than probing the alleged recovery of 171 billion naira funds used in executing federal projects.

“We don’t have any House of Assembly. Those greedy people who went and collected 100 million naira each from Gov. Emmanuel when we made noise about the 171 billion naira that the Governor collected from the federal government, are not fit to be called House of Assembly members”. OBA exclaimed.

The two term senator who is eyeing the nest governorship seat, also warned the Governor against any possible attempt to hinder him from emerging as his successor in 2023.

“Gov. Emmanuel should just forget about choosing a successor. He should focus on completing his projects before his tenure ends.

“Akwa Ibom people are now matured, they know who they want as their Governor.

“They have seen various governors since the time of Obong Attah, to this current Governor. They now want a giver, someone who can give because it is not everyone that will work in the industries.

“If the Governor attempts to stop the popular candidate from emerging in PDP, then that candidate will go to another party and will still win”
