BOMB!!! Tropicana: Akpabio’s Sepulchre of Uncommon Thievery – ex APC Publicity Sec. (Photos)
Former Akwa Ibom State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Engr Ita Awak has described the Ibom Tropicana Entertainment Complex as former Governor “Godswill Akpabio’s uncommon larceny and thievery against Akwa Ibom people.”
Chief Awak who is the Executive Director, Air Worthiness of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, took to his Facebook page on the corruption and fraud engulfing the entertainment project.
He said despite the many boastful promises of job creation and income generation from the project, Akpabio only used the project as a conduit pipe to loot the state resources.
“Indeed, the Ibom Tropicana Entertainment Complex has turned out to be a veritable sepulchre of uncommon larceny, or thievery, if you wish”.
“In 2008, Mr. Godswill Obot Akpabio publicly boasted that the brainwave he called “The Tropicana Entertainment Complex” made up of 3 cinema theaters, a 15-Storey “5 Star” hotel, a multi purpose event centre and conference facilities with the capacity to accommodate 5,000 guests, a “world class ultra-modern shopping mall” and a recreational garden will be completed, commissioned and delivered to Akwa Ibom people in “the first quarter of 2010.”
“He also loquaciously bragged that this elephantine waste will cost Akwa Ibom taxpayers some #33 billion and generate 5,000 jobs that’ll gainfully engage our people”.

The former Commissioner for Information said, despite all these mouth watering promises of an eldorado, nothing good came out of a project that consumed billions of tax payers money.
“But alas! What do we have? By the time Godswill Obot Akpabio’s eight year tenure expired on May 28, 2015, seven years after the construction works for the complex began and five years above the date of its delivery, the Akpabio Tropicana complex was less than 55 percent complete”.
Awak who has been a vocal critic of the former Senate Minority Leader described Akpabio’s defection to APC as a major setback for the party as the virus the party was previously opposed to has now being imported into the APC.
“A hybridized virus is in Akwa Ibom APC whose mission is to destroy APC from within. Why the conspirational silence? “, he said.

No wonder the ran to app when they threaten to expose the thief, yet buhari has integrity my foot. Anybody supporting this evil government is either ignorant,wicked,ethnic bigot. This government has brought Nigeria backward with high level of poverty, crime, ethnic cleansing and division. If we must protect our future and that of our kids, we should vote wisely

yeah, that Tropicana was commissioned by Akpabio but nothing is there, none of the rides or the useless white elephant hotel, who is visiting Akwa Ibom, with enough money to waste in that place?
Udom is industrializing which is what Akwa Ibom actually need at this stage. Akpabio's contribution where roads, but this was a scam.
