Akpabio’s Wife, Unoma Disrupts Protocol During Aisha Buhari’s Visit To Akwa Ibom


There was a mild drama on Friday at the Victor Attah’s International Airport when wife of former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mrs. Unoma Akpabio, disrupted the protocol during first official visit of the wife of the President, Aisha Mohammed Buhari to the State.

The incident occurred when Mrs. Akpabio attempted to assume the responsibility of the wife of the Governor, Mrs Matha Udom Emmanuel, which compelled the protocol officers from the presidency to intervene.

It was gathered that while the door of the aircraft opened and the First Lady Aisha Buhari made to start coming down, Mrs. Akpabio suddenly sprang from her place to shove aside Mrs. Emmanuel in order to receive the President’s wife to the state.

Akpabio’ wife, it was gathered had shoved aside the wife of the Governor of the State, who had been positioned rightfully by the presidential protocol team as the state’s first lady to receive the country’s First Lady formally into Akwa Ibom.

This led to the door of the aircraft being shut as the President’s wife retrieved and waited inside for some minutes before the senator’s wife was persuaded to stop further attempts to ridicule the state by her actions.

Once normalcy was restored, the aircraft doors were opened once again for Mrs Buhari stepped down to a warm embrace of Mrs. Emmanuel who introduced her to other Akwa Ibom women at the airport to receive her.

Meanwhile, some women at the airport who spoke with some reporters expressed displeasure at the action by Mrs. Akpabio.

“She received the wife of President Yaradua during her time, and also received Mrs Patience Jonathan, no woman ever insulted her this way,” an angry Mrs. Akon Umoren said.
