Former Akwa Ibom State governor who served from 2007 – 2015 and a Senator, Godswill Akpabio his statement on Monday claimed that his achievements as a governor in the State, surpasses that of Senator Bola Tinubu who was governor of Lagos state between 1999 and 2007.
Mr. Akpabio who made this known while responding to an article lashed out at critics who undermined his achievements said; ‘his people in Akwa Ibom failed to appreciate him, hence the blame on his 8 years government.’
Akpabio who was responding to an article written by a public affairs analyst, Celetine Mel, said the Yorubas who benefited from Tinubu have not betrayed their leader.
Akpabio whose opinion was aired by his Personal Assistant on Media , Lady Mfonobong Usoroh on several social media platforms, retorted, “The question is, as governor, for instance, what did Tinubu achieve that Akpabio never attained even double?”
He averred that “comparing Akpabio with Tinudu conveys on Celestine the toga of a man who wants to make profit from his (brother’s) funeral.”
“No one sells his brother, and himself expects to ever be trusted by the buyer,” Akpabio concluded.
