ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Akwa Ibom Consolidated Political Action Committee (AIPAC), has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) Deputy Governorship candidate, Benedict Effiong Ukpong, of perjury.

The organsisation alleged he did not fully resign his employment with Federal Capital Development Agency before contesting the election.

According to documents released by a group, Ukpong has been collecting his monthly salary and allowances from September 2014 until June this year as a staff of the federal agency.

“This is against the Constitution of the country,” the organization said.

AIPAC cited sections of the 1999 Constitution.

“In any election to which the foregoing provisions of this Part of this Chapter relate, candidate for the office of Governor of a State shall not be deemed to have been validly nominated for such office unless he nominates another candidate as his associate for his running for the office of Governor, who is to occupy the office of Deputy Governor.
Section 187 (2) of the 1999 Constitution further stipulates that,” the group said

The group added that the provisions of the Constitution relating to qualification for election, tenure of the office, disqualifications, declaration of assets and liabilities and the oath of governor shall apply in relation to the office of Deputy Governor.

“This is perjury pure and simple. What happened to character and decency? What happened to probity, transparency and honesty? These are the key ingredients demanded of a public servant of the stature of a deputy
governor,” they said.

Comment could ot be obtained from Ukpong.
