Gov. Akpabio presents 2 Toyota SUVs to Tuface, wife; to sponsor 29 to couple’s Dubai wedding

Musician TuFace Idibia

Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State shocked guests at the traditional wedding of the Nigerian hip pop sensation on Friday when he announced a gift of two brand new Toyota Prado SUVs to the musician and his wife, Annie Macaulay.

At the event in Eket, Mr. Akpabio also announced that the state would bankroll an all-expense paid trip for 29 delegates from the state to attend the white wedding of the couple fixed for Dubai, the United Arab Emirate on March 23.

“On behalf of the government and good people of Akwa Ibom State, I have decided to donate two brand new Toyota SUVs to the couple,” the governor announced with glee. “Also 29 Akwa Ibom delegates will join the wedding which is billed to come up in Dubai.”

He also promised to rehabilitate the Eket-Ibeno Road ahead of the child dedication of Tuface and Annie.

Moments after the donations were made, some concerned indigenes of the state telephoned PREMIUM TIMES, saying the governor had taken his wasteful spending of the state’s meager resources too far.

“How do you explain this kind of situation where a governor donates cars to people who can afford it when majority of the people in his state can’t afford a meal a day?,” said one angry resident who requested anonymity for fear he might be attacked by the governor’s loyalists.

“This man treats the resources of the state like his personal estate, moving about with huge cash and dashing money to everyone as if the funds belong to him.”

The criticism of Governor Akpabio however did not however take the shine off the wedding which held at Apostolic High School, Esit Urua Community, along Eket-Ibeno Road.

The event was scheduled for noon but did not begin until 4p.m. A notorious late comer to events, Governor Akpabio, as usual,  arrived the venue around 5:20 p.m. in the company of Senators Helen Esuene and Aloysius Etok.

When the two love birds got engaged on Valentine’s Day last year, many thought a star-studded wedding was in the offing. But they instead settled for a private civil marriage in Lagos, shortly after.

Tuface defended the decision back then, saying it was largely due to the deep respect he had for the feelings and emotions of the two major characters/lovers in his life – Sunmbo Ajaba and Pero Adeniyi.

 The couple have now fixed a star-studded wedding and honeymoon for faraway, Dubai, United Arab Emirates on March 23.

    Waste of resources and priority. Why can’t Surface quietly reject the offers?

    • Due

      Naija Governors who are mostly bereft of ideas run states like their personal property. Two Prado Jeeps and the expenses of those delegates to Dubai will go a long way in helping many rural inhabitants in Akwa Ibom.

  • Stanley

  • blogNaija

    without bias, how does one feels about such action by a state governor? i admire the akwa ibom state gov’s policies but this gesture by the governor is not bright. but to the beneficiaries, it is definitely a honour; most times that is how it is- fertilizing sycophancy. in our clime govt executives act as though they are administering their private estate.

    no leader is fail-proof; Mr. Gov pls guard your step. you must not end in a manner that certify hopelessness in getting good leaders in the present/future Nigeria.
