Clerk of Senate denies letter seeking sack of Akpabio

The Clerk of the Senate, Mr. Nelson Ayewoh, has denied knowledge of a letter purportedly written by him which seeks the probe and possible arrest of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio.

Ayewoh, according to the letter, which found its way to the social media on Sunday, allegedly wrote the letter on the instruction of the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege

The Clerk, according to the discredited letter, had asked the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to investigate and monitor Akpabio over alleged financial impropriety at the Niger Delta Development Commission.

But Ayewoh, in a statement made available to our correspondent on Wednesday but dated Tuesday, June 9, 2020, said neither the letter nor the letterhead used for it was genuine.

He said the letter was fraudulently written to look as if it emanated from his office.

The wordings, style, and syntax used in the letter, he added, “are clearly different from our in- house style.”

“The style, syntax, and word fonts employed by the mischief-maker(s) in their correspondence vary from our in-house standard,” he said.

The Clerk said he aligned with all the rebuttals that had been made on the fake letter by Omo-Agege.

He also called on security agencies to unveil the identity of the mischief-makers behind the letter.

The statement read, “My attention has been drawn to a forged letter dated 7th May 2020, purported to emanate from my office, addressed to the Chairman, Economic, and Financial Crimes Commission.

“The letter fraudulently indicates that His Excellency, the Deputy President of the Senate had directed the Clerk of the Senate to petition the Hon. Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and one Mr. Scott Ikott Tommey on allegations bordering on alleged corruption at the Niger Delta Development Commission.

“The Office of the Deputy President of the Senate has already responded to the false publication and fraudulent petition.

“I completely agree with the submission of the Deputy President of the Senate that the publication is “false, fake, malicious, mischievous and vexatious.”
