Her tweet reads:
BREAKING NEWS: Akwa Ibom state APC empowers some youths in the state with bicycles & materials used for tapping palm wine. Nothing person no go see,
This development sparked some reactions from Nigerians in her comments section.
Here are some of their tweets:
A lot of people might see this move as a joke and insult, especially if one looks at the money the state brings to the country through her natural resources (crude oil) which since forever is Nigeria’s main source of revenue.
But not withstanding, the fact that so much more could have been done in this empowerment program, I think the materials provided in its very little way will contribute to increasing products of our local wine to the market.
Or what do you think guys?
