Honourable Eseme Eyiboh, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity and the official Spokesperson to the President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has vent his anger on Senator Elisha Abbo for accusing his principal of being responsible for the judgment of the Court of Appeal that sacked him from the Senate.
Eyiboh, in a statement today, October 17, “strongly rejected” the claims of the dethroned Senator, even as he expressed shock at the assertions of the former Adamawa North senator.
The Senate President’s spokesman described the claims by the dethroned Senator as “delinquent, provocative and unbecoming of a Distinguished Senator.
“It is only a diseased and uninformed mind that will not believe that the outcome of any court proceeding is a function of the evaluation of facts and evidence within the province of the rule of law.
“It is uncharitable for Senator Abbo to pour his frustrations on Senator Akpabio or anyone else and his action betrays the bile he has for Senator Akpabio.
“Democracy is founded in the rule of law, so for anybody to accuse one of the strong agents of democracy and governance in the mould of Senator Godswill Akpabio, such an individual must be a monument of self-pity and his swansong a discordant escape from reality.”
Eyiboh stressed that Senator Akpabio has no ill-will towards any of his colleagues and had said in the past that the embers of the leadership election have been buried and replaced by the fraternal bond of nation building he shares with the overwhelming majority of senators.
