"This is what Akwa Ibom State University has done to a final year engineering student over a purported Facebook comment which they claim was abusive of @MrUdomEmmanuel, the governor. Udom Emmanuel is a PDP governor. But they want us to believe that they are different from the APC", Inibehe Effiong said.
