It is no longer funny that the Federal Agency, NBS, will continue to pollute the sensitivities of the people of Akwa Ibom state with archaic, primitive and inaccurately derived statistics in recent times.


The Bureau, within the span of 3years, has poorly labelled and painted the state in bad light, viz: (a) High in HIV, (b) Unemployment, and most recently (c) High in consumption of Alcohol.

One would wonder: how many Beer Breweries do we have in the state? How many local alcohol production do we have? What is the population of the state compared to others do we have that we are high in unemployment? Can a state like Akwa Ibom with high level of Education, HIV consciousness and awareness be rated 2nd-highest in HIV without a proper statistical research?

Consequently, NBS has constantly and consciously ditched out information that is tantamount to putting the image of the state in disrepute, derail in investment-driven economy, socio-cultural, political sanity and sanctity of the state. The poorly derived reports can drive away investors, hence a slap to the state.

Thus, NBS should review its methodology or withdraw its carcass reports, or face the law for these bedridden reports!
