It is reported that the defeated APC candidate for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District and former Governor of the state, Chief Godwill Akpabio has moved to save his battered image occasioned by the recent discovery of diverted medical equipment meant for his constituents in his apartment by men of ICPC.
Already, findings show that the defeated Senator has perfected plans to visit Onna and Ibiono Ibom Local Government Areas respectively to “donate” the recovered medical equipment.
According to reports, Investigation shows that Akpabio is slated to visit Awa -Iman, the home town of Governor Udom Emmanuel, on Monday, an act many believe is targeted at spiting the Governor.
Meanwhile, the youth of the area have vowed to resist Chief Akpabio , questioning why a man who did not donate anything to Onna people while in power, will ever imagine donating recovered medical equipment to them.
“We think this is an affront on us. Why would Senator Akpabio bring the medical equipment recovered by the ICPC to Awa? Is this not provocation taken too far? We will resist his planned visit vehemently.
“Awa is not a dumping ground for recovered medical equipment” a youth leader who craved anonymity had stated.
The former senator, Akpabio is also said to plan a visit to Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area, the home local government of Senstor Albert Akpan, to also donate part of those equipment to the people of the area.
