2face and Annie Idibia got a brand new Toyota Prado SUV from the Akwa Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio, as a wedding gift. The state government today released a photo showing Annie and 2face being presented with the SUV by the state’s commissioner for Information, Aniekan Umanah. Governor Akpabio has also promised to fund the traveling expenses of 20 of Annie’s family members to their white wedding due to take place in Dubai.

The Akwa Ibom state government released this statement in response to a lot of criticism the governor received. Read the statement below;
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 traveling 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.
