Former Akwa Ibom State Governor, Godswill Akpabio has denied reports that he turned the state government house into a brothel during his administration that expired on May 29, 2015.
The allegation was contained in a report published in one of the national dailies, titled “How Governors Turn Government Houses to Sex Havens.”
Akpabio, in a statement released by his media aide, Anietie Ekong, described the allegation as untrue, noting that during his tenure, the Akwa Ibom Government Lodge was run professionally and, at no time, was the facility turned into a brothel.
He said: “It is important to mention that when Governor Akpabio took office in 2007, the Government Lodge was in a dilapidated condition unfit for lodging high profile visitors of the government.
“As part of his proven Uncommon Transformation Vision for Akwa Ibom State, Akpabio oversaw the design and construction of a world-class Government Lodge befitting of the status of visitors of the State Government.
