Press statement from Madol Madol Aguer, the acting press secretary to Governor Gregory Deng Kuach
January 13, 2017 (SSB) — The office of the governor for Gogrial state is disputing the allegations level on Hon. Gregory Deng Kuaac Aduol that he has threaten to arrest Emmanuel Ariech Deng for criticizing the presidential decision of appointing him as a new governor for Gogrial state. The alleged article appeared on 09 January 2017, on Sudan tribune website and speeded to social media is untrue. I can term it as baseless, groundless and unfortunate allegation mean to jeopardize the unity of Gogrial state.
Therefore the office of the governor is issuing this statement to inform the general public and those critics that there is no life threatens to anyone. The misleading statement from enemies of peace to the governor is to be disregarded immediately because there is no reason for life threat since the critics are criticizing the governor without proper reason/ aimlessly.
The office of the governor also dismissed the nepotism criticism that the governor was appointed because he is the brother-in-law to the president, General Gregory did not rose to the highest military ranks because of president but because of his ability and capability in the military operations and he was not criticizes on that, why and what is the problem if he is appointed as governor since he is qualified to even lead the bigger position in the country leave alone governorship. Those critics should know that his appointment was people’s request, demand and many communities of Gogrial state recommended him to the president that lead to his appointment.
The office of the governor wishes to ask those critics to constrictive criticism that may benefits the state because no one is 101% prefect. If there is weakness in the office of the governor that weakness could be an opportunities if presented constrictively and can improve the governor as a person and Gogrial in general. But those with destructive criticism are enemies of the peace and Hon. Gregory will have no time for those barking because of their personal interests.
In nutshell, as governor his priority is peace and security in Gogrial state, the office calls upon the youth and entire people of Gogrial state all walks of life to join the governor in search for peace between Apuk and Aguok, also to give the governor time rather than attacking him and level accession which are baseless and unfolded.
