My attention has been drawn to a picture where I’m seen with some senators-elect of PDP, some from Akwa Ibom state now trending on the social media in which the originators tend to insinuate some political motives. In deed, the originators have laboured to create the impression of a turncoat who, ab initio was a black sheep in the APC family who is now has now perfected plans to go back to the PDP, following the temporary INEC induced ‘defeat’ of the APC in the governorship election in Akwa Ibom state. The said picture and caption gave the erroneous impression that I may have been a mole in the APC and that I was now on my way back to the PDP. I want to say it pointedly that the purveyors of this falsehood, from whichever political divide are, but very ignorant and paid mischief makers who do not seem to appreciate the demands of my office as the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters Senate. For the avoidance of doubt, my duty is not party specific, it covers the entire Senate of the FEDERAL Republic of Nigeria, not APC, not PDP. Simply put, I serve as a liaison between the Senate and the President. If anything, I think I should rather be applauded for my initiative in striving to assist in the orientation of our incoming senators-elect, rather than being labelled a turn coat. Finally, please I would like it to be noted that whatever I’m doing with the incoming senators is line with the course of my duties to the President and the father land.
Thank you and best regards.
Senator Ita Enang
Seniour Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate).
