That pidgin proverb addresses 3 classes of people we (@ Jabborro PR) encounter in our marketing programme, the Affordable Land Offer.
The first are Akwa Ibom people in the diaspora, who for 3 months had the opportunity to buy a plot of 500 square meters at $1400, thanks to the fall of the Naira. They foot-dragged. Now they have to buy same size at $1944.44, as the Naira is becoming stronger.
That's $544 more.

Image
Education in Akwa Ibom is still free and compulsory at basic level. Despite the severe loss in revenue, resulting in drastic cuts in Government spending; the Government of Mr Udom Emmanuel spends over 600 million naira paying for WAEC fees yearly.
During the ongoing Open Governance Tour, on Day4, earlier Tuesday, journalists and other media practitioners, led by the Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Mr Charles Udoh, were able to witness first hand the progress being recorded in the Education sector in the state.
