There have been high level desperation and fraud in Government House, Uyo as acclaimed aides of Governor Udom Emmanuel are alleged to be parading fake appointment letters and credentials.
This set of people are said to have waited painstakingly for appointments from the governor, all to no avail. THEMAIL learnt that in a sheer act of desperation, these ‘aides’ are are alleged to have fraudulently given themselves appointment by forging appointment letters, underwent documentation at the office of the Secretary to State Government and have been receiving salaries, imprest and other emoluments for months now.
Some of them are also alleged to be parading fake credentials in order to make
their CVs thick.
THEMAIL learnt that the governor recently got wind of the development and ordered all his aides to undergo a thorough screening exercise in order to fish out the fake ones.
The paper spoke with some aides of the governor who corroborated the report. They informed us that they underwent the screening exercise at Governor’s Office Annex last Monday.
THEMAIL learnt on good authority that the culprits stayed back from the exercise. The governor is said to be very angry with the development. According to our Government House sources, the governor has vowed to bring the culprits to book.
