The prizes have generated a lot of social media (Facebook) reactions, especially the type of vehicle (old and cranky Toyota Camry) given to Miss Agene.

“Women, this September una no wan carry last oh. Una just dey backfire back to back both nationally and locally since this month start. Previous week, the LGA chairman of Obanliku LGA Cross River, one Pastor Mrs xyz, arranged a few tubers of yam and machetes side by side and said it was for empowerment – one yam and one machete per ‘lucky’ constituent. The arrangement looked very miserly and reminded me of the biblical gift presented by Cain that was outrightly rejected by God.

The year wey this motor first knock engine, dem never even born the winner. This is a vehicle and not a car. And the vehicle is a problem and not a solution” – Simon Utsu.
