Governor Ikpeazu is a ‘drunkard’ ~ Senator Adeyemi
Senator Smart Adeyemi on Tuesday described the executive Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu as a ‘champagne drinking man.’
Senator Adeyemi while contributing to a motion on Safe School Initiative in Nigeria declared that Abia State is governed by drunkards.
Reacting to a social media post allegedly attributed to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who is from Abia, the lawmaker said, “Despite that some governors are doing their best, we are lucky to have a governor who has taken the issue of security as a serious priority.
“We are bordered by nine states, but we had an experience of the unfortunate incidents that are happening in neighbouring states. Some governors are committed to the protection of their people. In my state, the governor awarded contracts for the renovation of schools and provides security services to them.
“In some states where we have highly intelligent people, highly educated people, very enterprising people, like Abia, they are governed by drunkards. The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man. Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate.”
However, responding to Senator Smart Adeyemi’s attack, Abaribe expressed shock over the senators comment and asked his colleague to tender unreserved apology to the governor of Abia.
Abaribe said, “Mr President, I will like to make a clarification. Unfortunately, what has happened here today is one of the problems that you see on social media. I never made any comment on the governor of Kogi State. Never.”
