Mr Akpabio’s cash gift followed a speech by the Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, who had said that poverty is widespread among party members in the zone and that action needed to be taken to reduce the hardship faced by party members.

“If you want to prevent our members from straying to other parties, you must put food in the stomach of our supporters,” Mr Uduaghan had said.  Shortly after Mr Uduaghan spoke, Mr Akpabio announced he would distribute N1million each to party chairmen at the venue as lunch money as a way of placating them not to leave the party.  He said, “My brother Governor, Uduaghan, said our members are hungry and that we must put food in their stomach so that they don’t stray to other parties. I am giving all the state chairmen of the party N1 million each for Mr Biggs. Our members must not be hungry.”

Computer Wiz hacks police tracking bracelet, kills woman and rapes 10-year-old girl

An upstate sicko cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet before carrying out a savage crime — stabbing a school librarian to death and raping a 10-year-old girl, cops said.
Investigators were probing Saturday how 29-year-old David Renz, who was previously charged with possessing child pornography, managed to disable his monitoring device.
Renz, a computer whiz, has already faced jailhouse justice in the wake of his sickening crime — suffering a broken nose in a prison fight.
He was beaten inside a holding cell at the Onondaga County Justice Center on Friday — a day after the attack.
Cops say Renz abducted 47-year-old Lori Bresnahan and the girl as they left a gymnastics class at a mall outside Syracuse late Thursday.
