The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom, Umo Eno, has come under heavy attack after proposing ‘happy hour’ in the state every Friday if elected into office.

In a trending video seen by Naija News, the 58-year-old politician could be heard saying he will ensure cheaper prices of alcohol on Friday between 5pm and 6pm.

“Every Friday, I will have what I call happy hour for the state. And what do I want to do with happy hour? It’s simple. I want to create business for people that have facility. So, we declare that between 5 and 6, these are the bars that will sell drinks at certain price,” he said.

Happy hour is a period of the day when drinks are sold at reduced prices in a bar or other such facilities.

Reacting to the video, youths on social media slammed the PDP candidate for proposing such an ‘unsustainable’ and lowly plan for the youths.

They condemned the politician for not having ‘good plan’ for the people of Akwa Ibom.

thecanemakers wrote: This is simply how they rate the electorates. Happy hour should be our need in Nigeria now. That’s why they shun debates. Absolutely nothing to offer. When they are elected, they waste public funds to host parties. Then someone will sit and ask why WE NEED THE NEW NIGERIA ..”

People need jobs so they can make money, not to relax when they haven’t done anything. Relaxing should be the people’s prerogative when they have worked, not just relaxing and drinking for nothing. I know a lot of young and illustrious good men who need to stand up and challenge this brouhaha. How on earth will Udom and PDP field this man?”
