Prostrating for the wife of Akwa Ibom State governor, Mrs. Unoma Akpabio, is a common feature in Akwa Ibom state.

Those who do not oblige to this concept are often considered to be anti-Akpabio’s administration.

A member in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly representing Mbo State Constituency, Mrs. Alice Ekpenyong, knelt before the governor’s wife at the Independent National Electoral Commission office, when they were being presented with the certificates of return in 2011.

Similarly, many of the commissioners in the state cannot stand before Mrs. Akpabio to talk; they must either face a different direction or stoop low before her.

Recently, the Commissioner of Works, Mr. Don Etim, was found kneeling to talk to her during one of the Peoples Democratic Party campaign rallies in the state.

Etim is the Dean, College of Commissioners in the state. He is one of the longest serving commissioners in Akpabio’s administration.

Also a commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Dr. (Mrs.) Glory Edet, was recently seen fanning her during the presentation of the 2015 Appropriation Bill to the House of Assembly.

A strong PDP member, Mr. Silvernus Okon, stated that the governor’s wife has no regards for anybody.

He added that even if Etim had wanted to kneel before her, she would have cautioned the man against doing so.

“It is unbelievable that Don Etim who is old enough to be her father could descend so low to kneel before her.

“This tells you the type of people that we have in the state. Even if Etim had wanted to kneel for her, we expected her to have stopped him and cautioned him against doing so in future,” he said.

All attempts to get Etim to react to why he knelt before the governor’s wife failed as calls to his phone indicated that it had been switched off.

A text message was also sent to him which he did not reply.

    Its all about the Benjamins $ Naira. This man U r seeing in the picture is trying to protect is daily bread….but its really sad precedent in Nigeria. I think the so called first lady should be ashamed of herself for allowing people to be so humiliated like this in public.
    U cannot because U want to eat meat then start calling goat and cow ;Bros” or uncle.
    Its really sad.

    See mentality God nawaoo Iets see if her husband finish his tenure if people will still respect or kneel for her i pity her bcos what goes around comes around just shaking my head for her bcos for an elderly person to kneel for her is a curse so she better change her ways b4 d rod of God fall on her,in ten commandments it says children respect ur father and mother so that ur days on earth might be long not just ur parents alone,but to all older than u.

    This is common feature not a TRADITION in Akwa-ibom State, as it was stated in the report. Therefore, this is Power Intoxication which must be abolished legally.

    Anyway, I cant blame her subordinates. Cos dey c her as a goddess. It happens everywhere, just cos dey av money dey wl “luk, ask & demand” 4 prestige.
    I wl like 2 share a 2ru life story which happened last wk. @ my place of work mostly dominated by women.
    Wen I was newly employed @ d government settings 2yrs back, I noticed 2 particular “ogas” & “rulers” who wanted me 2 c & regard dem just like d “goddess” we were talking abt above. Wat I did was giving d 2 “ogas” less respect dey wanted 4m me & giving d oda gud example & humble leaders d high respect dey neva expected. My actions spoke louder dn my voice. Dey got jealous, dn always say bad tins abt me b/4 d overall leader. Left 4 me, I had already smelt dir evil deeds. So I always pray 4 divine protection. At d end, due 2 dir plots I was posted ds yr 2 a very very busy unit, dt you wl hardly av tym 2 eat. But, I found myself happy der, cos d leaders & we d juniors work like a gud family term members. 1 of d evil oga den saw me last wk & confessed & I coat her
    “U av really changed even happier dn when you left here. I am saying ds cos my spirit told me 2. Do you know you were rude 2 me twice. We had a small meeting abt you & decided 2 let U b cos you always ignore us”
    I only replied her thk u ma, but within me, I was giving al glory 2 d HOLY SPIRIT who made her 2 confess. THK U LORD 4 ANSWERING MY PRAYERS & EXPOSING DEM.
    D fear of GOD is d beginning of wisdom. Let us always fear HIM who can destroy both our body & soul in hell.
    Thks 4 reading!!!

    Nigerians and respect,yet we are very rude people,all of you insulting the president and his wife are also guilty of the same offence,I don’t blame the woman because she knows all those will be gone when she and her husband leaves office,if you know someone is there for you just cos of money you won’t have regard for the person.

      This is uncommon slavery in an uncommon state under an uncommon governor of the most commonest set of citizenry calling themselves the Akwaibomites. Time will tell.
