  1. SMH....what is he feeling like?

  2. Hahahaha. Does akwa ibom have test kits

  3. I will just assume this Governor wants a part of the allocation fund in his pocket. The good thing about this is even the Governor can become a victim.

  4. Because there is no confirmed cases in the state doesn't mean people should not b careful.

    I pray that this phase of life passes aways so soon.

  5. Until it is confirmed, you will not listen, minimal or zero contact is key to defeating this chinese virus.

  6. I wonder why he's being stubborn about this...

  7. He wants a case in his state, so he can get a share of the bounty.

  9. It's ok the virus will catch him first then he'll be forced to close down government house. Oyo has 1 already.

  10. What he said is the fact, prices of food has tripled because of social media info about corona.

  11. Same thing in Edo, obaseki has refused to shut down schools. God help us ooh.
