The attention of Rt.(Hon)Elder Friday Iwok, Immediate Past Member Representing Abak State Constituency in Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly has been drawn to a fictitious story published by a State based tabloid, Global Concord and circulated in various medium with the headline,’A’Ibom PDP CHAIRMANSHIP TUSSLE: Iwok Vows to Floor Ekpenyong,Ikim,Ors, with a rider,…Friday Iwok is a Failure Already, credited to a faceless Chieftain of the PDP.
It is quite saddening how journalism has been so saturated with junks and half-baked writers who cooks up stories out of their own imagination.It is on record that such gibberish has never been said or authored by the former lawmaker to anyone or group of persons at any location.
Hon.Friday Iwok is a committed member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) who believes in the agenda of God in his political career and will never resort to blackmail or cheap lies for any position in life.As a man who knows the culture of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and respects the tradition of the party with her leadership,Hon.Iwok will never indulge in petty and infantile talks for any reason but will only look up to the Agenda of God in his political career which has always been his guiding principle since he came into politics.
On the story of Hon.Iwok being a failure, credited to an unknown Chieftain of the PDP,It is only laughable and nonsensical for one to engage in such a silly statement as the track records of Hon.Friday Iwok are overwhelming since his days as State Deputy Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), State Chairman of National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives(NANNM),a veteran Labour Leader whose landmark records are outstanding uptil his position as Honourable Member Representing Abak State Constituency which he left indelible and landmark successes ever witnessed in the State Constituency with his superlative representation in the hallowed chamber which he has been celebrated and applauded by many across political divide including the people of Otoro Clan in Abak Local Government Area who recently honoured him as “UbokUdom Otoro Abak” for his meritorious achievements in the State legislature and his selfless service to humanity and mankind.
We wish to warn,Global Concord Newspaper and other detractors to desist forthwith from circulating falsehood with the hard earned reputation of Hon.Friday Iwok for cheap political point and should always abide by the tenets of the noble journalism profession of investigating and always publishing a balanced reportage.
Finally,We urge the general public to disregard the said publication as the story is fabricated and sponsored to smear the hard earned reputation of Rt.(Hon.)Elder Friday Iwok by detractors whose stock in trade is to blackmail for cheap political recognitions.We kindly advise the detractors to carefully read and study “Psalm Chapter 51 and Chapter 55” to cleanse themselves from enormity of lies and falsehood and also seek for mercy from God for peddling in propaganda and cheap blackmail.
Office of Rt(Hon)Friday Iwok,the Immediate Past Member Representing Abak State Constituency in Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly.
