    He is an Akwaibomit,this is one of the uncommon transformation that my governor use to say. God bless Nigeria god bless Akwaibom state.

      Forget about the empty uncommon transformation slogan that did not take us as a nation anywhere. How much did Gov Akpabio send to the young man to ameliorate his suffering when he was doing two odd jobs to make ends meet while studying. All he was busy doing was to donate brand new Prado SUVs to celebrities. Misplaced priorities! Thank you, young man for making yourself, family and nation proud. May God keep you long to enjoy the fruit of your labours. Bless you!

    This is the few out of many of what a product of green white and green can do in the global world. I now ask what stops us here in Nigeria for the government of this nation to put the standard learning facility here in this country, so we can produce more fine brain? If not that the nation misplace priority.
