Alex Egbona called John Gaul an ingrate, see what he did

Gaul and Alex 

Dr. Alex Egbona, member representing Abi /Yakurr Federal Constituency in the green chambers of the National Assembly has taken a swipe on his political opponent, Barr. John Gaul Lebo in the 25th January rerun election slated for Ekureku 1& 2 council wards. 

The lawmaker, accused the former speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly of sponsoring a publication of falsehood against him on several news platforms especially Cross River Daily. 

This was contained in a rejoinder shared on Chief Alex's official WhatsApp platform. In the rejoinder titled Re: ABUJA: Police Declares Alex Egbona's Financier Ele Wanted Over N1.3 Billion Fraud, Egbona revealed that he was a major sponsor of John Gaul's first political outing in 2014 when he contested for house of Assembly. The chief wondered why a man a assisted just few years back to gain relevance will today be sponsoring falsehood against him. 

The rejoinder reads in full: 

 Re: ABUJA: Police Declares Alex Egbona's Financier Ele Wanted Over N1.3 Billion Fraud. 

My attention has been called a the news making rounds that on social media by crossriverdaily.com, operated by Mazi Endurance Onun. 

Ordinarily, I would not have bothered to clear the air on this matter, but felt it necessary to do so because, like always, busybodies like the operators of crossriverdaily will want to cash in on the electoral activities by blackmailing the opponents of Mr. John Gaul Lebo, former speaker of the Cross River State Assembly. 

For avoidance of doubt, the police has not declared anyone closer to Hon. Alex Egbona wanted. 

The news item that Hon. Alex Egbona's financier has been declared wanted in Abuja by the police is from the defective mind of the carriers of such information. 

To put the record straight, Hon. Alex Egbona has no financiers, but the goodwill of his people whom have always stood by him, and will continue to stand by him now, or anytime in the future. 

Sadly, it was the same Samuel Asebe Ele and Hon. Alex Egbona that sponsored the elections of Hon. John Gaul Lebo in the PDP in 2014. Today, it is the same Hon. John Gaul who is sponsoring crossriverdaily to peddle falsehood about these two gentlemen.

In a related development, Cross River daily, an online newspaper had published a story how one Samuel Asebe Ele whom he claimed is a major fancier of Chief Alex Egbona has been arrested by men of Nigeria's anti-graft agency - Economics and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC over an alleged N1.3 billion fraud.
