According to Planet101 FM, Akpan described such claim credited to the former senate minority leader as a desperate ploy by the opposition to taint the administration of Governor Udom Emmanuel.

She explained that it was impossible for any kobo to be deducted from the salary of civil servants without the knowledge and agreement of the labour unions.

She described Governor Udom Emmanuel as a problem solver who is not moved by cheap political propaganda but focused on the welfare of civil servants.
