During the ministerial nominees screening at the Red Chamber on Wednesday, Enyinnaya Abaribe, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator from Abia state, says he would have made Godswill Akpabio, former governor of Akwa Ibom sweat.

The lawmaker said this, when Akpabio, a former senator who represented Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, appeared before the Senate for screening.

According to Abaribe, if not for the tradition of the senate which allows former lawmakers to “take a bow and go”, he would throw very tough questions at Akpabio.

“I would have made Godswill sweat… We know that as an uncommon person, you will work very uncommonly to make sure the relationship between the chamber and the villa is uncommon,” the lawmaker said.

However speaking, Akpaboo said, “I will continue to offer uncommon services to Nigeria through the current platform; with integrity, dedication, and love. I left office many years ago and on the roads I did, there is not one pothole 11 years after. I rest my case on the CV before you,” he said.

“It is my firm belief that the only way we can touch the lives of the average man in the society is through his hallowed chambers. Nothing really to say than what you already know; I am regarded as an uncommon performer in any place I go.”
