Ban on cult groups not political, says Akwa Ibom government


Akwa Ibom governor Emmanuel Udom

The Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Uwemedimo Nwoko, has described as untrue insinuations that the ban of cult groups in the state was politically motivated.

Speaking in an interview with The Guardian in Uyo, he said the governor’s action was free of any political reason, but was guided by his belief in the future generations of the state.

“People have different thoughts and approach to issues, but you have a governor who doesn’t care about, or think about elections, but is thinking about the next generation.”

He said Governor Udom Emmanuel does not play politics on issues that affect the generality of Akwa Ibom people.

“It has become a matter that the governor who is a Christian and a father, interested in the safety and welfare of the society and particularly, the future of the society, cannot afford to close his eyes or treat the issue with kid gloves. That is why the governor is so angry and decided to take this step,” he stated.
