Anyone Who Says I Am Bleaching Is Silly! Ex-Gov. Alao Akala Fires back At Reporter

A lot of people have said the former Governor is bleaching. In this new interview, a Punch reporter asked him if he was bleaching, and the former Governor, said, write it there that I said you are silly. Did you know me when I was black? I don’t know what gave people that impression, he said angrily. Find part of the interview below.


You talked about quality, is it in terms of your dressing too?

In terms of everything, Akala is a man of quality. Look at me, I am a man of quality, with due respect. I use quality materials.

Is the use of jewellery part of it too?

Yes, I have been using jewellery as a young man.
Do you know what they called Ghana before, Gold Coast. I lived in Ghana and that was where I got used to it early in my life. We make statement with our looks in Ghana.
In those days when we were in Ghana, your wife bathed you and took care of you.
I am from Ghana, so I have been using jewellery (he sends for an album). I want to show you some pictures. Pictures that I took some 40 years back, you would see chains on my neck. Look at my hand chains and rings in this picture. That is how I was brought up.
Even when I was in (police) uniform, I wore my chain with my uniform.

Is it part of your own fashion to bleach?

Bleach? That is stupidity; you are asking a very silly question, how can I bleach? You are very silly to ask that question. What do you mean by that? What gave you that impression?
(He pulled up his clothe and singlet to show his fair complexion.)
Is this bleaching? Have you seen the cream that I use that makes me bleach or did you know me when I was black? So if you want to write that, put it there that I said you are very silly to ask me that kind of question.
Don’t ask that kind of question again.
What you don’t know; you ask. You don’t even know my parents. Is my wife complaining or my children? I don’t know what gave anybody the impression that I bleach.
You don’t know me; do you know what it takes to bleach?

Does your wife still bathe you?

She can’t carry me anymore; we are old. Don’t forget that the First Lady is not my first wife. My first wife is an old woman like me and she is still with me. She was also brought up in Ghana and that’s why I was able to marry her. Most of the people in Nigeria cannot keep up with my lifestyle of cleanliness.
