He recently revealed this during the courtesy visit of the Alumni of the University of Calabar led by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Florence Banku Obi, in Abuja.
According to him, what the critics have to say about him is not his business, because the awards he keeps receiving are an indication of his unceasing commitment towards infrastructural development and commitment to the growth of humanity.
He added that no manner of political misinterpretations and blackmails will erase the good works he has done in politics.
His words, “This award is not ordinary but one that recognizes my antecedents inspite of all manner of political misinterpretations and blackmails.”
