“You Are Lucky It Wasn’t Me– Wike Blasts Senator Adeyemi For Calling Abia Governor A Drunkard (Details below)

Governor Wike insisted that the Kogi West Senator’ s comment was a great insult to Abia people, and he would have disgrace the Senator if he had been in the place of the Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, who was branded as a drunkard.

Recall that on Tuesday, Senator Adeyemi stirred reactions in the Senate over his statement describing the Governor of the State of Abia, Okezie Ikpeazu, as a ” champagne drinking man. ”

Adeyemi disclosed that Abia State government is ruled by ” drunkards” while he was explaining about a motion on the Safe School Initiative in Nigeria.

Adding his voice to the reactions that have continued to follow Senator Adeyemi’ s declaration, Governor Wike said on Wednesday that it was not proper for the legislator to make such an uncomplimentary comment.

The Rivers State Governor, who spoke at a meeting at the Government House with the Niger- Delta Senate Committee, noted that Adeyemi went too far with his comment.

“I just watched the President of the Senate. He ought to have denounced it. How would a Governor do that to him? How would someone in the Senate stand up merely because he has immunity and claims that a governor is a drunkard?

“How can you stand up and abuse all the people who have elected a drunken man? It was insulting. Anyway, these are people from Abia. I wish he could one day say that to me. I’ m not going to take it easy. ‘

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, human rights activist Aisha Yusuf accused governors and information ministers for speaking out for terrorists in the country.

In her speech, the convener of the ” BringBackOurGirls campaign” also called on religious leaders to stand up for terrorists.

When speaking at the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, annual law week in Calabar, Cross River State, Yusuf made this argument. She called on professional organizations to raise awareness of their responsibility to protect people.
