Governor Akpabio purchases million-dollar bullet proof luxury vans?

This is according to Sahara Reporters. Below is how they are reporting it...
Just months after purchasing a $45 million dollar jet, and a few days after recklessly doling out several thousands of dollars to Nigerian music star, 2Face and his wife, Akwa Ibom State Governor Godswill Akpabio has taken possession of several bulletproof sprinter luxury vans from US based Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC).
A source told Saharareporters that the governor took delivery of the Mercedes Benz made vans recently after they were customized to his specifications by TAC in Texas.
The vans will join a remarkable fleet of top-of-the-line bulletproof luxury Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) Akpabio already has in his official convoy, making the latest purchase superfluous and insensitive, insiders in the government told SaharaReporters.

The Texas Armoring Company has displayed the luxurious interior of Mr. Akpabio’s latest toy on its Facebook page.

The Akwa Ibom governor, who intends to run for the Senate when his second term ends, has emerged as one of Nigeria’s hardest-spending governors, with a taste for the finest things, while most of his State remains undeveloped.   He is also one of President Goodluck Jonathan’s closest confidants, and recently emerged chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, with a mandate to help Jonathan win re-election in 2015.

Insiders say some governors convert some of the luxury possessions into personal items they take with them when they leave office, or give away as presents to friends.

This is so unfair !!! Why would the masses be suffering in Akwa Ibom yet the governor spends extravagantly !!!

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Its not their fault.
The discovery of oil in Nigeria seems like our greatest undoing,coz it brought about reckless spending by some few priviledged individuals.

I'm not saying they should spend recklessly but hope you would have called it reckless if the gift was given to Peter of pSquare and not 2face?. Our leader's should please try to think about the common man on the street more and implement policies that will reduce poverty because that will reduce the rate of crime and not bullet proof vans.

Great. So when..my people..do we say enough is enough? Do u realize that Nigeria is the only country in the world where elected government officials throw lavish parties to celebrate their appointment into office as it indicates the enrichment of their families by way of embezzlement. So instead of serving the people of the state who they have been entrusted care for, they devise numerous ridiculous ways to recklessly spend monies that belong to the people as if it was their inheritance..and they flaunt it and show it off to the same people. When is enough enough fellow Nigerians?

Its becoming just too much in this nation when elected office holders spends tax payers' money on unnecessry things. The security our leaders can't provide for the public that's the essence of buying bulletproof vans since they know insecurity is far fetched in this nation.

That's how they all start- from “nobody” to “somebody” using state funds. Later, his children will open their big mouths to say “there is no poverty in Nigeria”. We are watching patiently, because what goes round always comes around.

visited Akwa Ibom for the 1st time last weekend. My first impression was "wow, this airport and its environs look neat" then again i decided not to jump into conclusions but see for myself, a drive into town from Uyo Airport, down to Eket through villages, and beyond Eket where i attended a wedding ceremony left me agape! not one pot hole, neat roads and environment, no signs of environmental pollution, infrastructure, i was beyond impressed. If you have never been to Akwa Ibom, do not be quick to condemn this Gov.
