Senator Godswill Akpabio says his energy and focus is on steering the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s agenda for the people of the Niger Delta region.

He cautioned individuals and groups currently campaigning and urging him to take a shot at the presidency in 2023, saying “their activities are capable of causing undue distractions in the polity”.

The former Akwa Ibom state governor said he is not yet done with his national assignment, hence starting something afresh is not in order.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Jackson Udom, disclosed the former lawmaker’s stance.

“The Minister realizes that in a democracy, as hard as one may try, you cannot suppress whatever opinion others have of you, whether about leadership or governance,” the statement said.

“This clarification”, the statement noted, “became imperative because information at our disposal reveals that some entrenched interest and sponsored groups are wrongly insinuating that the Hon Minister is behind all these calls from some parts of the country.”

“We totally object to the insinuations that he has any link to the group of volunteers- many of whom he has never met in life.

“It is also unfair to the Hon Minister that, given his experience in politics and governance, he would start a campaign before it becomes legally permissible to do so.

“The Hon Minister, will definitely not be distracted by these concocted and false insinuations, from delivering on his core mandate, as directed by the President for the people of the Niger Delta Region.

“We unequivocally detest any misplaced and needless attacks founded on a conspiracy theory against the person of the Minister, by his political foes,” the statement said.
