Akpabio won’t resign, Senate spokesman replies PDP

The Chairman Senate Committee on Media, Senator Yemi Adaramodu (APC, Ekiti South), has flayed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for demanding the resignation of Senate President, Godswill Akpabio.

The PDP on Wednesday asked Akpabio to resign following an allegation of budget padding to the tune of N3.7 trillion that is not traceable to any project, under his watch.

But Adaramodu told newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, that Akpabio won’t resign because “he has not committed any wrong doing to warrant a resignation.”

He said, “The PDP has elevated chicanery to statecraft and fatally failed in their sordid attempt to hoodwink the unsuspecting public, on the ineffectual but spurious allegations of budget padding.

“The party’s ludicrous call for the resignation of Senator Godswill Akpabio as the Senate President is unthinkable and shows the party as a massaging balm for falsehood and immoral legislative outbursts.

“Contrary to the contention by the PDP that N3.7 trillion was discreetly inserted into the 2024 budget for alleged non-existent projects, and what transpired on the floor of the chamber, it is open knowledge that no such absurdity is found in the budget passed by the National Assembly and signed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, which is being implemented judiciously by the federal government.

“No amount of lies and fake allegations will distract the 10th Senate, under Senator Godswill Akpabio, from delivering good legislation and effective oversight for which Nigerians elected us for.”
