2Face And Annie Idibia Receive Their Very Controversial Prado SUV From Governor, Godswill Akpabio

Mr and Mrs 2Face Idibia has finally received their very controversial traditional wedding gift which is a brand new Toyota Prado SUV from the Akwa Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio.
The above photo showing Annie and 2face been presented with the Key and document of the SUV by the state's commissioner for Information, Aniekan Umanah was released by the Akwa Ibom state government...also in an attempt to put an end to the controversy trailed wedding gift, the state government also released a press statement....see it below:
Following spurious and false speculations in the social media concerning the wedding gift by Governor Godswill Akpabio to Mrs. Annie Innocent Idibia, née Macaulay, I wish to state as follows: 

That the Governor of Akwa Ibom State Chief Godswill Akpabio, donated ONE Prado jeep to Mrs. Annie Innocent Idibia, nee Macaulay a daughter of Akwa Ibom State and renowned artist during her traditional marriage at Eket. 

That the State Governor as a token of support for the couple promised to fund the traveling expenses (economy return tickets) for only 20 relatives of Mrs. Annie Idibia Macaulay to Dubai, where the couple have chosen to wed. 

“That looking carefully at the surrounding events in perspective, Mrs. Annie Idibia, nee Macaulay is a daughter of Akwa Ibom State and the gift of a Prado SUV from her governor is only a gesture of love and goodwill. Her resolve to stand by her husband on his journey right from his days of youthful beginnings to stardom even in the face of challenges was commendable and a true attribute of the Akwa Ibom women. 

“That It is however unbecoming that mischief makers and enemies of progress have decided to inflame the social media with incongruous reports that the State Government is sponsoring an entourage of party supporters to the wedding in Dubai, when in fact the Government is only sponsoring the travel expenses of twenty of her family members at an estimated cost of roughly Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00) only. 

“I wish to therefore urge members of the public to discountenance the misrepresentations made out of a well intentioned act of the governor.”  

The state commissioner for Information, Aniekan Umanah.

....if you were to be in 2Face and Annie's shoes will you collect such gift...which many believe will go a long way in depleting the state funds resulting in impoverishment of the masses?
....as for me I will joyfully collect my wedding gift and thank God for the generous giver.
