A publication titled: ‘EFCC quizzes Akapbio over alleged corruption’, has insinuated that Lekki Gardens received funding from the former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Godswill Akpabio.
Property firm denies involvement with Godswill Akapbio
Lekki Gardens says the former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Godswill Akpabio, has never financed the company in any way.
In a public statement by the Director, Media and Communication, Lekki Gardens, Mr. Azuka Ugboh, the real estate investment firm responded by calling this publication false.
"An October 17, 2015 report in a national newspaper titled: ‘EFCC quizzes Akapbio over alleged corruption’ had described the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State as the owner of Lekki Gardens. The publication further suggested that Senator ’s substantial investment in the company had enabled the firm grow from a middle market real estate consultancy firm to a major player in the property market in a period of barely five years. Senator has never injected capital into our company and we have never received any sort of funding from him since the inception of the company.”
