N1 Million for Lunch! Governor Godswill Akpabio Offers N1 Million Each to 6 PDP State Chairmen for “Mr Biggs”



Just while there is a widespread outrage over the donation of a Toyota Prado SUV and 20 plane tickets to Annie Idibia at her traditional wedding recently, Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa-Ibom state is in the news again for another donation.

He was caught on the Channels TV camera on Sunday offering N1 Million each to the six state Chairmen of the Peoples’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the South-South geopolitical zone who had converged in Port Harcourt for a party reconciliation session.

Before he announced the cash gift, the Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, made a comment that some action needed to be taken to reduce the hardship faced by party members.

“If you want to prevent our members from straying to other parties, you must put food in the stomach of our supporters,” he said.

This was then followed by the announcement of the cash gift by Akpabio who said the N1 Million each to the party chairmen at the venue as lunch money was a way of placating them not to leave the party.

“My brother Governor, Uduaghan, said our members are hungry and that we must put food in their stomach so that they don’t stray to other parties. I am giving all the state chairmen of the party N1 million each for Mr Biggs. Our members must not be hungry.”

Watch the announcement of the cash gift in the video below:

      Like it’s so sad and I am not surprised. It seems this Akpabio guy enjoys dishing out money for no logical reason. This is where you’d also find Uduaghan. Same Man (Uduaghan) that closed the roads down in 2011 just because his daughter was getting married, talk about a lawless nation. Mothers and kids were in the flood, just because of one girl, getting married. You needed to see this people and their children before they entered office, now they are dishing out money ridiculously as thought they worked hard for it.
      Gosh, Nigerian politicians, get your priorities right. The money you wasted and dished out for this gullible stuff could take care of some public schools and hospitals. I am not saying that you should not give money, but for that course, the money you gave was too much, and quite unreasonable.
      “If you want to prevent our members from straying to other parties, you must put food in the stomach of our supporters,” Very daft comment, my goodness. SMH.

    This is sheer insanity. If i may ask, whose money is he doling out. Is it his? even if it is his money, how can someone who doles out his own money recklessly , convince anyone that he can frugally and efficiently manage a whole state. Nigeria, smh. I am very sure this kind of video will not go viral, people will just see it and brush it off as business as usual. No one has the time or better still the effontery to confront such issues. Yet Nigeria, has a very powerful voice, if you doubt it, google “oga at the top”.If only Nigerians will apply half the zeal, they have for the issues like the “oga at the top”,saga, and lend their voice to weightier matters, like this and the alameisegha pardon, i am sure we will not be here today. #chasingshadows#

      I beg to differ!!(most) Nigerian youths are very passionate people…behind all the Oga at he Top” laughter/mockery lies the root of all our problems:Indiscipline…what is the difference between the nonchalance and irresponsible attitudes of Mr Shem and this Buffon?? My friend…it’s just the money!! There is a need to call the older generation out on their crap on all levels of government in our nation…..moreover as sad as it is….it seems we have become more accustomed to the blatant show of corruption(seen in the above video) and were a tad more irked/amused by the new dimension of ignorance and incompetence #ogaatthetop revealed.

    firstly i must say…this guy is exactly what is wrong about our society. i am an akwaibomite born and raised abroad however i must say that this guy gives me no REASON absolutely no reason whatsoever to pack my bags and return backhome. the sheer sight of this man instigates a feeling wihin me that i am yet to find an adjective for. he is a poor excuse for a governor and until he gets off his high horse the state unfortunately will continue to be baptised in public embarrassment. its no good furnishing the front of your state to attract tourist. the real akwibomites have been abandoned. this man is doing nothing to restore the reputation of the president of nigeria if at all he has any left…nonetheless i have established i have nuin to loose afterall however my children and the generation is all i am fighting for. wether we like it or not, the time will come one day for this baptism of embarrassment and later rain of disgrace to be wiped away ffor ever. no i am not again godswill akpabio i just find his myopic mindset annoying… bye

    Go to Akwa Ibom state and look into what he has done for the state. Akwa Ibom has developed rapidly and it is solely down to him. It is hands down, the most developed state on the country. I’m from Akwa Ibom and if development continues at the rate it currently is developing, I don’t care about 6m. sorry, I just don’t

      Shut up! it’s a lie. I’m from the same Akwa Ibom. Don’t lie here. The guy does a few good things publicly and sends out his puppets like you, Junebug, to spread this fallacy that he’s effective. Idiots all of you

      March 19, 2013 at 1:17 am

      How and why would you care? After all you have internet and a computer for you to sit and spew illogical statements for others to read. It is not your fault. What constitutes development? Tell me those things that you have seen in Akwa Ibom that made you conclude Akpabio has done such an excellent job that he can now give out N6 million for lunch. It’s baffling how people can descend to such lows of naivete. Your statement is so arrogant and condescending. Surely there are no cancer patients in Akwa Ibom that can benefit from that N6 million which you simply don’t care for. But of course there is no young man or young woman in Akwa Ibom with an inventive mind whose dream can be supported with N6 million. It is just too much to conceive that one village in Akwa Ibom might need a new transformer, or even “second hand” can be managed, so that power supply can be more constant. If the development is so complete in Akwa Ibom, why can’t that money be invested for maintenance, future upkeep of the “so-called development.” No we must finish the money now. Let me tell you Junebug, even if it is One naira, you do not give out state funds for party purposes. Yes I am making the assumption that it is state money. No one is that irresponsible with money they know came from sweat.

    This is what happens when you have an “itibolibo” as a president. We did not have governors running amok during Obasanjo’s time, Jonathan cannot put the governors in check so they do whatever pleases them. Akpabio was at the fore of Jonathan’s campaign so he’s untouchable. What rubbish??????

    Like Pastor Bakare said, “It takes Idiots to be ruled by fools” How ca you blame the governor when the applause he received was more than what the supper eagles got for wining the nations cup. Nigeria is a failed state in every aspect of the word. This is a show of shame from top to bottom, while it also shows that these men does not know what it takes to govern. If party members are leaving your party, its not because they are hungry. it is because there are no oppurtunities to make anything meaningful from supporting a party that steals all the money and do not think about the ones at the bottom. Why cant you create job opportunities for these so called hungry supporters so they can continue to support you and your party. One meatpie and Guinness malt per supporter will not cut it sir. I seriously do not see PDP winning more than 3 states in 2015 but again there’s nothing PDP indomie or Mr Biggs can not do to a hungry majority.

God must surely deal with this bunch of thieves and wicked politicians we have in this country accordingly!!! Except he is not God anymore!!!

    Someone said there’s no development in the state, does any one have an idea what it means to declare not just free but free and compulsory education in a whole state. How many other governors has done even have of as to invest in the education sector. What other future are we talking about. The man is a governor and can afford to pay anybodys meal ticket or sponsor trips to any part of the world. Even if he doesn’t have the money, all the banks will even beg to lend him to dash out. As far as I am concerned Akpabio is the best Governor akwa ibom state has ever had. Those of you who were born n bred abroad, maybe you should pay a visit to akwa ibom one of this days before you make comments you don’t even understand. For christ sake, does anyone know how many companies this man has brought in to the state and how many people are being employed since he became governor, do you know how many widow the wife has built houses for and finished it, talk bat health, he is currently building a state of the art hospital for the state not private and healthcare services there will be free. What must a gentle man do to accord some kudos, all the primary and secondary schools has been broken and renovated and more constructed where necessary, this are same schools that the conditions where so bad that peoples children learn outside under trees and when it rains dye all go home, what are we talking about. He gives car gifts to people getting married in the state and anne and 2face are not the first neither will they be the last. Pls give the guy a break or maybe we should find time let me lecture some of us on what the man has done for his state cus one can’t count. I love akpabio.

    Yes he shouldn’t be going around doling out 6m for Mr biggs or giving out SUVs. He may not be refined or sophisticated as evidenced by this crude display; BUT, the fact remains that he is responsible for:
    (1) the new Airport in Uyo which is going to be the most modern airport in the country – FACT
    (2) the e-library, one of its kind in West Africa, with about 70 million copies of e-resources, over two million games, 35,000 hard books of various genres, 350 computers with full Wifi connectivity, language lab, conference facility, etc
    (3) A major network of well built roads – How many states can boast of good roads, be real please. Are roads not a major killer of our people?
    (4) The man is even reconstructing and expanding the Uyo-Ikot Ekpene-Aba Road, a federal expressway out of the state’s pocket! why? because it is Akwa Ibom lives at risk if the road remains in that state.
    (5) 20th Anniversary Specialist Hospital an ultra-modern six-storey facility, with 287 beds, six modular operation theatres, MRIs and other sophisticated medical facilities that are available in any comparable hospital overseas. Not to mention on-going upgrades to the Uyo teaching hospital

    Infact, there are too many infrastructural developments to mention here but they are well documented in the press. Please go and research for yourselves.

    All states in the Federation are receiving at a minimum 4.5billion per month (obviously some more thant others) in allocation but still have nothing to show for it so go figure.

      But of course, these “developments” will not need maintenance after he leaves office. Nigerians think so little of themselves. You don’t think your state deserves more than one e-library or ultra modern hospital. EHH, At least you have one. You want to compare mediocrity with mediocrity to show that your state at least is better. Mcheeewww!!!
      If anything happens to that ONE hospital, the whole world stands still right? You are looking at the NOW. Absolutely no thoughts for tomorrow. SMH!!! What a pity.

      “You want to compare mediocrity with mediocrity to show your state is better”.

      Thank you. You’ve just effectively summed up my entire reaction to everyone claiming Akpabio is ‘working harder than other governors (and therefore should be left to squander state money as he pleases)’. It’s amazing how beaten down Nigerians have become that we honestly can’t see that we deserve better. Actually… I shouldn’t say that because that particular attitude explains our general response towards everything from cheating/abusive husbands to Alamieyeseigha’s presidential pardon.

    March 19, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    We really need to face reality in this country oh. Governors are quietly sharing monthly allocation amongst their cronies and family members, yet no one is saying anything. What because it is not in the news?

    There is no excuse for any state not to have basic infrastructure. None whatsoever! Akpabio will keep on giving SUV’s as wedding presents to his state indigenes, and it is not going to have an impact on the free education that Akwa Ibom indigenes are receiving, nor will it impact on the pace of development in the state.

    Akpabio please hire me to join your PR team abeg, I tire.

    Mr sweet sensation abi its tantis… The governor of a state is elected to do all the things akpabio has done and even more. So i don’t understand your rant about him giving free food, building schools and hospitals… what was he elected to do in the first place? come and dance azonto in the government house or what? the problem with you is your mentality has been bastardized by bad governance to the extent that you don’t understand what basic infrastructures and amenities are about. Because everything you have mentioned so far is basic to me. when you start mentioning all this things i feel sorry for you. Yes he might have done all these things good for him and the people of akwa ibom, but that doesn’t give him the right to spend government money on stupid things like bullet proof/amour ed vans, buying Toyota SUV”s 2face and Annie (i don’t understand what the state will benefit from this, well maybe tuface will sing an ibibio song in his next album), also sponsoring 20 people to the wedding in Dubai…jeeez i just don’t get it. And the new one 1million on Mr biggs lol chai. Its either your akabio is high on adulterated phensic and alomo bitters mix or he is just looking for cheap ways of boosting his stupid ego. sweet sensation if ur married love your wife instead or if not your gf but akpabio no no.

    When the matter came up, instead of people to face the matter and hit the nail in the head, people went as far as to start insulting and calling my Governor name

    When the matter came up, instead of people to face the matter and hit the nail in the head, they went as far as to start insulting and calling my Governor names, if the matter was that he bought suv or gave 6 million then people should face that and talk about it and not begin to count things they know no shit about akwa ibom and what the governor has done for his people, as far as am concerned and like I said before, Akpabio is the best Governor Akwa Ibom had ever got. Yes it’s his duty to do all these things, but it takes a man with the fear of God and love in his hear to step into the shoes of power and still remember his purposes there. After all we’ve had other governors and we didn’t just start now to pay tax. Where did all the money go. But because the man has come to show us we aren’t paying taxes in vain we, then we start calling him names because he but suv and gave out 6million. When others are embezzling billions upon billions hard currencies and can’t even boast of any form of development or investments in their state. Akpabio doesn’t deserve what he’s getting in this forum. You guys shud go do ur home works well before you know what to say and when to say it. I REST MY CASE.

    My fellow Nigerians, please don’t waste your time and energy hating and fighting Governor Akpabio. Walk in love and wage war against hatred. Love is the best way to fight back. I thank Shoe Sensation for showing him love openly and demonstrating it vividly. You guys should learn this and change your attitude.
    Let your confessions build the road over which faith hauls its mighty cargo and allow your faith to keep pace with your confessions. I can see that your words dominated you guys so much!
    If you stay busy thinking about right things, the devil won’t be able to fill your mind with wrong things.
    Believing is of the HEART not the head,U can only believe by continuous meditation, speaking under your breath and muttering the word… That’s what Akpabio does. Until you believe with your heart, you can’t have anything.
    Furthermore, when you allow what someone says or does to upset you, you’re allowing them to control you! IGNORE them & their opinion
    He is a very successful Governor, knowing fully well that, success is more permanent when you achieve it without destroying your principles. He doesn’t destroy his principles that I know; Akpabio’s meekly is not weakness, but rather strength under control. He also know that, “progress must be measurable”. He must have goals to be able to measure progress by giving out the one million naira only each to them. He must be clear on what his goals are.
    He located his present position in the area of his life, where he wants progress.
    He also envisage what the next level would be like; where he want to go; Having a picture of it. Determining what he must do to get there. Remember his inputs in terms of efforts, time, and resources- money, materials and information matters here. What he is going to do will be affected by what God is going to do.
    That means he noticed it and took action.
    Otherwise his visions will fail and come to nothing.
    True leadership isn’t about you. It’s really about understanding the people around you and empowering them to do amazing work. Being a visionary leader, he knows that,
    vision is the world’s most desperate need. Knowing fully well that, there are no hopeless situations, only people who think hopelessly. I am meant to understand that, you guys have problems and those problems cannot change you as much as they expose you. Note this that, whenever you’re hit with a problem the real you comes out. So watch what you say!

    Mr Sweet sensation u still don’t get the point do u? Mr akpabio has done some good stuff nobody is denying that. But he should remember that he is accountable to the people for every kobo he spends from the state funds. If u tell me the prado suv and 6million is from his personal hard earn money and u can prove it then I don’t have issues. He can as well bring heaven down to akwa ibom I don’t care, but nothing gives him or anybody the right to spend govt funds meant for the people on irrelevant and stupid things. And u say Akpabio is not making u pay taxes in vain, of cos not ur tax is used to pay toyota, Mr biggs and flight and hotel bills in dubai,private jets, bulletprofof vans etc. And u talk about other governors embezzling, yes does dat mean dat akpabio should mismanage state funds on that basis as well?
