Gov. Emmanuel issued this threat in Uyo during a solemn assembly organised by the state government to usher in 2017 where he warned office holders in Buhari’s government that hail from Akwa Ibo State to desist from criticising the state government or risk physical assault.

He said, “Let me warn every Akwa Ibom person. Do not take our Christianity and humility for granted. In 2017, any Akwa Ibom son or daughter that is given appointment anywhere, we thank God for your appointments. If you use your appointment to cause disunity in the state, I can assure you that I have the full assurances of the youths not to let you go.”
