  1. The last time I checked, he's still being invited and has a lot to answer on the billion naira criminal case of corruption hung on him by EFCC.

    Is it that Nigeria as a country reward criminality or what?

    I don't understand, a man who was invited last week for his corruption case and in the pretence of undergoing medical, evaded the invitation and here we are about having such a man as the number 3 person in the state.

    I think this APC people don't rate Nigerians one bit.

    1. If you like don’t rest

  2. For real? Akpabio?

    Why am I even shocked?

    They should all go to hell

  3. Corrupt Akpabio
    O well let him bring money to Akwa ibom

  4. Thought orji uzo kalu said it's his turn, what happened?

    1. The east planned poorly for this one. APC simply didn't have options and his fellow senators from other parties where unlikely to back him.
