The People Democratic Party (PDP) women leader in Ward 2, Calabar South Local Government Area, Cross River State, Mrs Abasi Effiom Bassey have warned those impersonating her office for personal gain to desist forthwith.
Bassey who voiced her resentment in an exclusive conversation with a Lens reporter recently at a suburb adjourning the Calabar river, aka Bayside was alleged to have indicted the Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, Mr. Donald Duke, erstwhile state governor and Sen. Florence Ita Giwa in the #End SARS Protest that witnessed massive looting, arson and destruction of properties, aside lives that were maimed and lost.
She denied knowledge of the report in the social media and hard copies in circulation purporting to have emanated from her office. In a terse warning where she asked those involved in the illegitimate conduct to leave her alone, threatened lawsuit for unrepentant folks.
Narrating her perspective of the matter, she said, “A month ago, some people came and told me that my office name was in a write up circulating which indicted prominent indigines in the recent #EndSARS Protest that led to wanton destruction of properties which I have no knowledge about.”
And continuing she said, “The write up used my office name as the PDP women leader, ward 2 and the name used was Orok Anwan M. Duke. The street name in the report was No.7 Tete street. My office address is not at that street neither do I have a family compound there.”
“I am warning those people to stop spoiling my office name to achieve their selfish political gain,” she reiterated.
The women leader appealed to the Cross River State Government to provide electricity, health facilities and good schools for the community saying that the people were suffering from lack of these basic amenities.
In addition, she requested government to also provide the community with skill acquisition for women in order for them to be self employed.
