Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Akan Okon, has denied that his office leaked state official documents to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Okon, while reacting to allegations by a state-based socio-political group, Akwa Ibom Conscience for Good Governance, that he was giving information to EFCC to indict former governor Godswill Akpabio, said that the allegation was “spurious.”
The Commissioner, in a statement in Uyo, said that as an appointee who served in the Godswill Akpabio administration, it was unreasonable for anyone to assume that he would contemplate such misconduct.
