Udom Still Needs N1.2 Billion to Complete Akwa Ibom Lagos Lodge, So Far N840 Million Already Spent (Photos of the Lodge)

About N1.2 billion is still needed to complete the Akwa Ibom State Governor’s Lodge located at 36 Femi Okunnu, Street off Bourdillon Road, in Ikoyi, Lagos, Commissioner for Housing and Special Duties, Akan Okon, has said.

Mr Okon told the visit members of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly Committee on Appropriations and Finance, Friday, that his ministry only accessed N840 million out of the N1.2 billion proposed for the project in the 2017 budget.

He said the balance of N1.2 billion his ministry is requesting in the 2018 budget will complete the project in March this year, but this sum does not include finishing cost for the lodge.

The original contract sum for the project, according to the commissioner, was pegged at N2.1 billion.

Although the commissioner would not give details of the percentage of work at the new lodge, propellerng.com observed that the project may have advanced up to about 60 to 70 percent completion.

Mr Okon said the new building was started in June, last year, to replace the old lodge located at Bishop Aboyade Cole Street in Victoria Island, the area which is now used more for commercial purposes than residential.

What did they do with the old lodge then? We see they like wasting cash on real estate ventures. A good example is the 10,000 seat church under construction.

What is the point of this Lodge? How many days at a time is the Akwa Ibom governor staying in Lagos that they need a 2 billion naira lodge?

Is that the state he's meant to be residing?

Does the Lagos state government have a lodge in Akwa Ibom?

This is just stupid

Akwa-ibom leaders don't like investing in a projects that will relief peoples of poverty.
in fact average akwaibomite want other people to worship them. Hence investing on irrelevant projects that wudnt help the masses.
where is the ibom science park, amakpe refinery, paper factory, ceramics company and soon.
with all the oil well in that state akwa-ibom people are still finding it hard to eat 2timez a day.
anytime I visit dt ma state I feel so sad abt the government act of wickedness on the people.
may God hlp us .shalom

A one story building for 2.1billion (the total).

But this building adds nothing to the economy, creates no job or improves anyone's life. It's quite sad.

When I see the immense corruption exhibited by these people, I don't believe I'd go to hell. No. I can't.

Does the akwa ibom state governor live in Lagos ?? What kinda fuckery is this ?
Why is this people so inhuman and wicked what is the purpose of this senseless project
How on earth will a state have a lodge in Lagos and will be servicing the building with tax payers money from their home state, whereas the state government doesn't live there and whenever they are in Lagos, they prefer staying in one of the 5stars hotels
Or their personal houses ..
Useless sets of human beings.

Of what economic importance is the lodge? We have the worst set of leaders. The sad reality is that people (most of which are jobless) would still pump thekir fist in the air and sing his praise if he drives by. our leaders lack foresight and are so outdated. How many investors has he been avle to woo to the state since he assumed office. So bad

At the end of the day, they will sell it themselves for cheap after leaving office per monetization policy.
