The Abia state Governor, on Monday took a swipe at the Senator that his case is akin when a mad man takes your clothes while bathing and you take off after him naked, no one will know who is mad between the two of you.
According to him, if he runs after Senator Adeyemi, society may not be able to differentiate between him and the Senator.
Speaking in Abuja Monday when he gave his goodwill message at the launch of Made in Aba, an Autobiography of the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the Abia State governor who was apparently responding to Senator Adeyemi who lampooned him last week Wednesday, describing him as a Champagne drinking governor, noted that he does not Drink.
The governor said, “I don’t drink at all. And I don’t begrudge those who do big issues. What you say, the things you say and where you say them speaks a lot about who you are “According to Chinua Achebe, If a mad man takes your clothes while bathing and you take off after him naked, no one will know who is mad between the two of you.
“I share in the joy of today’s event because I understand the place of history in the life of the people. The caption points to the tenacity that Aba exudes. Aba does not bother about taking a fall because it is sure it will rise figure, that is why we are better traders” Recall that the Senate Committee on Aviation, Senator Smart Adeyemi, APC, Kogi West, had last week taken a swipe at Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, alleging that he is a drunk. According to Senator Adeyemi, Governor Ikpeazu is a Champagne drinking Governor.
Senator Adeyemi poured vituperations on the Abia State governor while contributing to a motion titled, “Urgent need for the Restoration and Revalidation of the Safe School Initiative in Nigeria” and sponsored by Senator Adi Odey Stephen, Peoples Democratic Party Party, PDP, Cross River North.
Adeyemi who suddenly deviated from the motion under discourse, started attacking Ikpeazu, just as he was probably responding to a social media post allegedly authored by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, PDP, Abia South where he allegedly cast serious aspersion against the person of the Kogi State
