Akobi Gomina is a political saga detailing the corruption and shenanigans of the political class in Nigeria. The film details the personal and official lives of Governor Idowu who is hell bent on winning a second term in office despite his poor performance and mal-administration of the first term. He would stop at nothing to achieve his aim even when one of his sons died and another in psychiatry. Eventually he lost his re-election bid to a woman who is supported by Governor Idowu's mother in law and his first son Kola, who joins the youth movement against his father upon regaining his health. Akobi Gomina is the first Nigerian film to directly address the corruption and insensitivity of the Nigerian political class since return to democratic governance after many years of military adventure in the administration of Nigeria.
