A senator from Akwa Ibom State and a former Nigerian minister, John Udoedehe, has revealed how the immediate past governor, of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, regularly doled out huge amounts of money as “transport” to politicians, each time they had a political meeting.
Mr. Udoedehe, said caucus members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were given at least N3 million each as “transport”, every night they met to discuss the party’s affairs. He however admitted the governor gave him a special sum, way more than the N3 million others received.
“Godswill Akpabio used to give us at least N3million each as transport money every night we attended caucus meeting in Government House. My own was special, it was more than N3million”, he said.
Udoedehe made this revelation during an interview on Planet FM in Uyo on Saturday, November 7.
