      This is one of PDP’s greatest scam! One of their so called great governors who spent so much money to build a ” world class hospital” yet he can’t go there himself . Chai

      Was it a fruedian slip? abi why is the P in President Buhari in small letter and the one for Saraki in big letter. This is how he is politely insulting our PMB. I doubt the VP and the President called him. Wayo man. Sick Ko, sick ni!

    Sorry bout your accident and thank God for his grace and your subsequent recovery. But my dear look at you in a foreign country in a hospital built by the people for the people of that country. You no dey SHAME. Honestly the next emotion you should expirence after gratitude to God is pure Shame and by Gods grace GUILT. But I see you feel notting of the sort, feeling entitled to recieve real health care contrary to the rubbish you provide for the subhuman.

    Gov. Akpabio, you built and equipped a hospital in your state, made so much noise about it, Got so much accolades, made people like us to award you so much Kudos, yet you have an accident and you agreed to be flown abroad for treatment, pls I ask, what happened to the state of the art, mightily equipped hospital you commissioned in your state? It’s not good enough for you or what? I am confused!!!….SMH… So sad..

    There should be a law prohibiting these people from flying abroad for medical reasons……… they should also suffer and die like many of our brothers and sisters have!

      If someone can start a petition plz. This is becoming ridiculous. They under pay teachers in public schools that have zero facilities so we and our children will go there and graduate as illiterate, they build hospitals that they are not brave enough to receive treatment in. When they need medical help fiam , obodo oyibo and still have the guts to snap foto and say thank you. At what point do we start calling bullshit bullshit.

    really –

    does this person look like he was in an accident. u can not fool. I refuse to be deceived.
    even someone who has malaria or fever looks sicker than this man.

    according to the report about the accident, the car somersaulted. the car tumbled. this man doesn’t look like someone who was in a car that tumbled.

    this man is wanted by EFCC.
    this thing looks fake and made up. we need more proof. which country is he receiving treatment what is the name of the hospital. I wasn’t born yesterday.

    ” Senator Goodwill Akpabio
    was flown to an undisclosed foreign country for
    further checks and treatment”

    why cant they tell us the location he is receiving the treatment.

    I can smell a rat. we should all be suspicious about tgis incident. something doesn’t seem right.

    Its a shame he had to be flown out of Nigeria for medical care. The Nigerian nation without any doubt is capable of building several state of the art medical facilities. Shame shame shame. I wonder if he was being driven at the time of the crash and if so, where is the driver?

    mr akpabio, so u can release a photo of ur self in the hospital but u didnt release any pictures of the accident.

    in this day and age were every phone has a camera, nobody took a picture of the accident.

    we didn’t see any pictures of the accident. according to the report about the accident, the accident was a huge catastrophe,a car tumbled, so I find it really difficult to believe that there are no pictures, only an eye witness statement.

    mr akpabio I am on to u like white on rice.

    How do these politicians come to own private jets? – just look at their ridiculous salaries that is subsidized by corruption !. They continue to take Nigerians for a ride and we have to stop them for the sake of our future as a country. MOST NIGERIAN POLITICIANS DO NOT HAVE CONSCIENCE AND DO NOT FEEL SHAME

    He don’t look “down” to me…. See his robust physique and his shiny skin….he looks quite healthy for someone who had an accident so serious that he had to be air lifted. Buhari needs to ban these people from being flown abroad. Enough is enough

    I won’t call Godswill Akpabio a liar because he has done it himself. After claiming to have built a “World Class Hospital” in Akwa Ibom, he has now traveled abroad to a Public Hospital in the real world.

    You will answer for your lies!

    Liar Liar..they just raided the Governor’s house so he must have had some advanced warning and made up this silly accident in order to elope.
    He’s probably in the Bahamas where he offloaded the State’s stolen loot…he’s quite a person of substance in the Caribbean ever wondered why??
    First Allison Madueke..Now Akapbio..all faking sickness..EFCC is on your trail…better vomit that money back into the economy in order to empower the youths!!

    GA has only succeeded in raising a sleeping dog. The first class hospital he made noise about is now a no go hospital for him.

    Nice try Mr “Shameless” Akpabio. No hospital gown, body language inconsistent with one who has aches and pains so common after accidents. Naija of today isn’t Naija of 20 years ago. We are not impressed that you were “flown abroad.” All we care about is creating jobs for the masses, fixing our crumbled infrastructure, security of lives, etc.

    Regards to the picture, the bed and background looks like public Nhs hospitals in uk……..not even the private hospitals. The beds are so uncomfortable you can’t even sleep properly. If GA with all his stolen wealth, is been admitted in that sort of place, his only using the premises for photo op, and not receiving treatment, but if truly he is ill, get well soon GA.

    A crane helped create the accident scene by turning the car. There were no camera or phone on ground to take picture and this is bcos nobody sustained any injury. The hospital abroad is a private clinic that belongs to a Nigerians. They feature it in some nollywood films done abroad, you can also apply to shoot a 10mins movie like this one, trust me it cost less than 100k.You can also get it free if you’re A governor or Petroleum minister. Additional fee applies to those that want the full equipment plus apron. Thanks for your patronage! I hope your movie becomes a blockbuster.

    HE commissioned a world class hospital in May and was flown abroad for treatment. What happened to the ‘WORLD CLASS’ hospital he commissioned. God will judge these people. As they toil with peoples lives, theirs will mean nothing as well.

    Staged scene aside, my problem is with the English. “Though down but not out, I will rise again”? Sir…you’re combining too many thoughts and not making any sense. Just like your initial accident story which can’t be proved.
    Yeye dey smell.

    Various stories have been circulating recently on how looters are trying to get their loot out of Nigeria by any means possible, since there is no longer a place to hide it in Nijah. Who is to say that this manufactured accident was not a ploy to fly out what our accident victim stole from the people of Akwa Ibom. It is very suspicious that this happened jut before the raid at the Akwa Ibom government house by DSS. As someone said, yeye dey smell. You only have to put two and two together to see that this accident was staged. Look at the hospital where he is staying, look at the picture, the bed is barely big enough for him, does this look like the hospital where someone with a private jet would stay in??? Mr Akpabio we are not fools.
