“That having perfected their criminal mission in the Labour Party, they have now moved to the YPP for their endorsement racketeering and may continue to so move to other political parties for this same illicit trade” A’Ibom Labour Party, Uduakobong Campaign Council

PRESS RELEASE

Re: Obi-Datti Movement in Akwa Ibom Declare Support for Umo Eno: Another round of fraud!

The attentions of the Labour Party in Akwa Ibom state and Uduakobong/Ebongho 2023 Campaign Council have been drawn once again, to yet another round of fraud perpetrated by a group of persons led by a known political fraudster and con artist in Akwa Ibom state by name Nature Udoh.

According to reports in a section of the media, the said Nature Udoh and his gang parading as members of Obi-Datti Movement in Akwa Ibom state, purportedly declared support for the ‘yet-to-be sure’ PDP governorship candidate in the state; Pastor Umo Eno.

The general public would recall that just few days ago, about the same impersonators, still claiming to be members of ‘Obi-Datti Movement in Akwa Ibom state’, had purportedly endorsed the YPP governorship candidate; Sen Bassey Albert for this same 2023 governorship election in this same Akwa Ibom state!

If this is not the height of criminality, we wonder what else, is.

However, we would have loved to ignore these handful of unscrupulous elements and their ineffectual ploy, considering that we had earlier alerted the political class in the state and the general public to be wary of these endorsement racketeers. It would at this point be pertinent to reproduce one of the paragraphs in our rebuttal dated 4th March, 2023 to wit:

“That having perfected their criminal mission in the Labour Party, they have now moved to the YPP for their endorsement racketeering and may continue to so move to other political parties for this same illicit trade”

Our alert was informed by their untoward activities during the short period of their association with the Obi-Datti project in Akwa Ibom state and some credible information at our disposal about them.

Upon the foregoing, we wish to state the following:

  1. That Nature Udoh and his gang were never members of the Labour Party in Akwa Ibom state or anywhere in Nigeria. While other credible Akwa Ibomites across party lines supported, voted for, and are still in support of Mr. Peter Obi’s Presidential Project, the likes of Nature Udoh and his gang came with sinister motives to defraud the Movement.

It must be stated clearly here that it is politically unacceptable to think that OBI-DATTI in whatever names you call it, will endorse any other candidates other than those of the Labour Party.

The public is hereby reminded that these political jobbers had since ceased to be members of OBI-DATTI Movement /Campaign Organization and had since returned to their former respective parties.

  1. That Nature Udoh and his gang converted to their personal uses monies running into hundreds of millions of naira which was meant for campaigns/rallies logistics and most recently, Labour Party Polling Agents, during the February 25, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
  2. That Nature Udoh and his gang should better surrender themselves to the Security Agencies in the state to which their crimes have been reported, to explain the whereabouts of the monies.
  3. That Nature Udoh is a known PDP minion and jobber, who manages one of Akwa Ibom State Government’s facilities on Udoh Umana Street, Uyo where he operates the Discovery Park Sit Out as a cover.
  4. That real OBIdients/Obi-Datti Movement members in Akwa Ibom State are in full support of the Labour Party Governorship Candidate; Mr. Uduak Udoh who has the capacity, intellect, character, verifiable qualifications and certifications, and he is competent and set to govern our dear state, come May 29, 2023.
  5. That in obedient to our leader; Mr. Peter Obi’s directive, all OBIdients will vote for the LP Governorship Candidate; Mr Uduak Udoh and all candidates of the Labour Party for the Assembly elections come March 18, 2023.

In whatever names you call it, OBI-DATTI belongs exclusively to Labour Party and Akwa Ibom Labour Party Candidate for Governor is Uduakobong Peter Udo with Charles Ebongho as his running mate. We also have candidates for various State Constituencies Elections.

  1. That while we call on all Akwa Ibomites to discard any ‘cash-and-carry endorsers’, we wish to warn credible candidates in the state once again, to be wary of the likes of Nature Udoh and his gang as they, like the roaring lions, are looking for whom to devour.
