These atrocities, according to the Senate President, include illegal possession of firearms, printing naira notes without authorisation, and others which put Nigeria in an economic mess.


To Akpabio, there is hunger in Nigeria today because of the type of policies and actions taken under Emefiele’s watch during the past administration.

The Battle

Akpabio, however, maintained that despite the damages caused by the past administration, the government of President Bola Tinubu is battling to ensure Nigerians can sleep with their eyes closed and eat three square meals a day.


The Senate President spoke personally on Sunday during a thanksgiving service by Senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State.
