Senator Smart Adeyemi said Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu is a non-performer and a drunkard.
Adeyemi representing Kogi West hurled the vitriol at Ikpeazu on Tuesday on the floor of the Senate while contributing to a motion on restoration of safe school infinitive in Nigeria.
Ikpeazu was remotely connected to the topic under discussion, however, the Senator took a swipe at him in a reprisal statement to derogatory remark Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia South allegedly made about Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi State on social media.
“Despite that some governors are doing their best, we are lucky to have a governor (in Kogi State), who has taken the issue of security as a serious priority.
“We are bordered by nine states, but we had an experience of the unfortunate incidents that are happening in neighboring states.
“Some governors are committed to the protection of their people, in my state the governor awarded contracts for the renovations of schools and provides security services to them.
“In some states of Nigeria today, where we have highly intelligent people, highly educated people, very enterprising people, like Abia they are governed by drunkards.
“The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man. “Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate,” Adeyemi said.
