The Nigerian Army has withdrawn its personnel from the Akwa Ibom State Government House, Daily Post reports.
This was made known on Friday by the state’s Commissioner for Information, Charles Udoh.
According to him, such injustice was meted out on the state alone in the entire Niger Delta region.
Describing the directive as an all-time low in the history of democracy of Nigeria, Udoh called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the army so that it will restore the security apparatus of Governor Emmanuel Udom.
“It is inconceivable that Akwa Ibom Government House has been singled out in the Niger Delta region, as a focal point for such an ill-advised action at a crucial time like this.
“The Government and people of Akwa Ibom State, therefore, implore the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed forces to restore all security apparatus deserving of a sitting Governor to the Akwa Ibom State Government House
“All eligible voters are enjoined to go to their respective polling units to cast their votes in an orderly manner without fear of intimidation,” he added
