S/West Sending Mercenaries To Other Parts Of Nigeria To Fight – Akpabio

Godswill-AkpabioFormer Governor of Akwa Ibom State now Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, has alleged that the South West is the “only peaceful” area in the country because it sends mercenaries to other regions of the country to fight.
The minority leader made the claim in his contribution to the debate at the celebration of one year of the 8th Senate yesterday.
Speaking on the general state of affairs in the country, Akpabio warned that if something urgent was not done, Nigeria would be plunged into major crisis.
He said: “In the South-South, people have abandoned their homes because of activities of Niger Delta Avengers. The North is in turmoil; the South-East is boiling because of agitation. The South-West is the only peaceful area, but they still send mercenaries to other areas to fight”.
Senator Akpabio, however, failed to mention which areas the South-West mercenaries are sent and the nature of “fight” they partake in.
Curiously, none of the senators from the South-West challenged the former Akwa Ibom governor on this claim, our correspondent reports.
Meanwhile, the senator has challenged the All Progressives Congress-led federal government to market the country in a positive light, saying no serious investor will put his money in a country that has already been described as “full of criminals” by its leaders.
“I want to urge the APC to market this country very well. The way the APC is saying the country is full of criminals, investors will not come here to invest. They must change the way they talk about Nigeria. Things need to change”, he stated.

  1. Mr. Minority leader, it’s unfortunate that truth never comes out when needed. Is it not true that this country is full of criminals? Corruption is a crime, stealing is a crime. Who amongst you so called leaders have not soiled his/her hands in corruption? Don’t try to castigate PMB, because, it’s glaring from what had been discovered so far in how corrupt the immediate administration was..
