Tuface And Annie Idibia Take Delivery Of Their Prado SUV from Akwa Ibom State Governor - See Photo + Read The Statement From Akwa Ibom State Government Concerning False Allegations Spreading On-line

Yesterday, Tuface and Annie Idibia took delivery of the brand new Toyota Prado SUV that the Akwa Ibom state governor, His Excellency Governor Godswill Obot Akpabio, promised them as a wedding gift. The state government released a photo showing Annie and Tuface being presented with the SUV by the state's Commissioner For Information, Aniekan Umanah. 

This wedding gift from the governor caused a lot of tongues to wag on-line, complete with false allegations. IMO, the governor should be applauded for supporting his citizens in the entertainment industry. This will encourage other Akwa Ibom State citizens to toe the line of their predecessors that have contributed to making their state proud. I have read many comments on-line as well, telling 2face and Annie what to do with their own gift! Why can't people just wish others well and move on? Please, let them be.

Read the statement below that the Akwa Ibom State government also released concerning the false allegations spreading on-line.

"Following spurious and false speculations in the social media concerning the wedding gift by Governor Godswill Akpabio to Mrs. Annie Innocent Idibia, née Macaulay, I wish to state as follows:

That the Governor of Akwa Ibom State Chief Godswill Akpabio, donated ONE Prado jeep to Mrs. Annie Innocent Idibia, nee Macaulay a daughter of Akwa Ibom State and renowned artist during her traditional marriage at Eket.

That the State Governor as a token of support for the couple promised to fund the travelling expenses (economy return tickets) for only 20 relatives of Mrs. Annie Idibia Macaulay to Dubai, where the couple have chosen to wed.

That looking carefully at the surrounding events in perspective, Mrs. Annie Idibia, nee Macaulay is a daughter of Akwa Ibom State and the gift of a Prado SUV from her governor is only a gesture of love and goodwill. Her resolve to stand by her husband on his journey right from his days of youthful beginnings to stardom even in the face of challenges was commendable and a true attribute of the Akwa Ibom women.

That it is however unbecoming that mischief makers and enemies of progress have decided to inflame the social media with incongruous reports that the State Government is sponsoring an entourage of party supporters to the wedding in Dubai, when in fact the Government is only sponsoring the travel expenses of twenty of her family members at an estimated cost of roughly Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00) only.

I wish to therefore urge members of the public to discountenance the misrepresentations made out of a well intentioned act of the governor.”

The state commissioner for Information, Aniekan Umanah.

Gbam! Case closed!!!
