Nigerians Reacts As ‘Happy Hour’ Starts In Akwa Ibom
A video of residents of Akwa Ibom seen enjoying a ‘Happy Hour’ as proposed by the governor-elect, Umo Eno has caused a stir on social media.
Happy hour is a period of the day when drinks are sold at reduced prices in a bar or other such facilities based on Eno’s suggestion.
Recall, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom, Umo Eno, proposed to make available a ‘happy hour’ in the state every Friday if elected into office.
The 58-year-old politician said 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.
Below is a video of some residents enjoying a good time on Friday days after the PDP candidate was elected.
