The Senator representing Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi, has described Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, as a “champagne drinking man”.
Adeyemi stated this on Tuesday while reacting to a social media post allegedly authored by Abia South Senatorial District representative, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
In the post, Senator Abaribe was said to have allegedly cast a serious aspersion against the person of the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
“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 neighbouring 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.
“The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man. “Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate,” Adeyemi said.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, cautioned Adeyemi against insulting the Abia governor and his use of language.
Reacting to the attacks on his governor, Abaribe expressed surprise at Adeyemi’s outburst, denying ever making the statement in question.
“I will like to make a clarification. Unfortunately, what has happened here today is one of the problems that you see on social media.
“I never made any comments on the Governor of Kogi State. Never. What has happened is what we see going on today,” he said.
KanyiDaily had reported how Reverend Father David Okechukwu led his church members to protest and pray over the poor state of Ohanku road in Aba, Abia State.
