Senate President Akpabio Debunks Report On Creating ‘Office Of The First Lady’ For His Wife

Godswill Akpabio
It has been debunked that Senate President Godswill Akpabio created the office of First Lady in the National Assembly for his wife, Ekaette Unoma Akpabio.
The report was debunked on Monday by Eseme Eyiboh, Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, who maintained that Akpabio did not create and has no intention of creating such an office for his wife.
The report should not have sparked a response, but Eyiboh noted that it did because it was necessary to refute the report underlying assumptions, which are obviously designed to defame and denigrate the Senate President.
Recall how legislators reportedly became enraged over rumors that Akpabio created an office for his wife in the National Assembly.
But Akpabio’s spokesperson in his reaction said the report lacks logic and should be disregarded.
He stressed that the only relationship Akpabio’s wife has with the National Assembly is that her husband is the President of the Senate and by virtue of that, she leads the Senators’ Wives Association of Nigeria (SWAN).
“A story of 20 paragraphs on the creation of an imaginary office for the wife of the Senate President uses three paragraphs on the unfounded issue.
“And the remaining 17 paragraphs were used for recitation of unrelated fables and other innuendo.
“For emphasis to the unguarded who may be prone to the fake news merchandise, Mrs Ekaette Unoma Akpabio has no office in the National Assembly and there is no intention towards that.
“Her only relationship with the National Assembly is that her husband is the President of the Senate and by virtue of that, as with his predecessors, she is president of the Senators’ Wives Association of Nigeria,” Eyiboh said.
