Senator Effiong Bob has reacted to a publication in a local tabloid alleging him to be at war with the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke and Senator Bassey Albert, over 2023 elections.
The publication which was published by The Post Newspaper and titled “2023 MADNESS BEGINS: EFFIONG BOB, OBA, ONOFIOK LUKE, AKAN OKON IN BLOODY WAR” was published on Friday, March 15.
Senator Bob who frowned at the publication expressed dislike on the use of his name by newspaper publishers to sell their papers.
In a release by the Senator’s Media and Publicity Assistant, Anietie Akpan, Bob cautioned those involved and advised them to close operations if they have nothing to write about.
The Senator stressed that he would not hesitate to take legal action against any medium guilty of defaming his name and hard earned reputation.
He therefore called on members of the reading public to regard the publication as a figment of the publisher’s imagination and that of his sponsor.
