Akpabio Refuses To Apologise To Goje In The Senate Over Comment by ug2000(m): 12:41pm On Jan 28, 2016


There was a mild drama on the floor of the Senate yesterday when the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio refused to apologise to his colleague, Danjuma Goje over uncomplimentary comments and, what was described as an attack on his integrity and personality.

The drama started when the Senate Minority Leader accused Senator Goje of not doing enough in his state in the area of infrastructure when he held sway as governor between 2003 and 2011.

Senator Akpabio who took his turn to contribute to the 2016 budget, turned the heat on his colleague when he described the 2016 budget as “uncommon “, but went further to state that, “I want to commend the President for raising capital expenditure to 30 per cent, but for me it is nothing new, it might be new to my Colleague Goje because while as governor he did not place premium on capital expenditure, but for me I was doing between 80 to 83 per cent of my budgets on capital projects and that is why there is massive developments in Akwa Ibom under my leadership.

“If you go to Akwa Ibom, you will see those developments”, he added.

Senator Akpabio also said the N400million proposed for the Niger Delta Development Commission, NNDC was grossly inadequate, adding that the Federal Government presently owes NDDC about N700Million.

But in a swift reaction, Senator Goje raised a point of order, drawing attention of the Senate to what he referred to as, “attack on his image and reputation “, accusing the Senate Minority Leader of deviating from the main issue of budget debate and misrepresentation of his views.

Attempts by Goje for his colleague to either withdraw his comments or apologise were in vain.

While contributing to concluding lap of the budget estimates debate yesterday, Senator Danjuma Goje acknowledged the challenges facing Nigeria due to the dwindling oil prices.

He expressed satisfactions that the present administration is focusing Agriculture and Solid minerals, adding that the 30 per cent budgetary provisions for capital projects was in line with Tue changed mantra.

He told his colleagues that previous administrations were interested in siphoning funds rather than channeling them into development programmes.

Akpabio the stubborn goat! Just wait your time is coming. You and Prince ( your nephew) plundered the resources of akwa ibom for good 8yrs. With that Prince of a boy forming demi god.

What infastructure are you talking about? Roads, staduim and 1 hospital!
Dilapidated state schools, glorified secondary school that you call akwa ibom state polytechnic! angry

Common!!! For a state that had an average budgetary allocation of 30billion per month.
YOU AKPABIO IS A THIEF!

Nonsense action, however for now its PDP VS. APC (1-0)
We shall expect a return match before February 25 when the budget would have been passed.
Our Senator (rep Osun State, cant remember the district) would fire back, i trust Goje and his colleagues from North would fire back at him.

Nonsense and unwarranted comparison. shocked
