Akpabio: I didn’t receive any “prayers” – LP senator reacts to Enjoyment Allowance

Senator Ireti Kingibe, who represents the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja in the Senate, has stated that she did not receive any emails containing “prayers” from Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

This is in response to Akpabio’s claim during the plenary session that prayers had been sent to the lawmakers as they go on recess.

“No, actually, I didn’t receive any prayers, but I’ll check my email for the prayers,” Kingibe said humorously, adding that she did not know for sure what Akpabio was talking about.

TALKING ARENA recalls that the Senate President had during the Senate’s plenary session on Wednesday told Senators, “In order to enable all of us to enjoy our holidays, a token has been sent to our various accounts by the Clerk of the National Assembly”.

Akpabio later withdrew the statement, describing the supposed disbursement as “prayers” sent to their “mailboxes”.

During her appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today program, the Senator, who is a member of the Labour Party, LP, also clarified that she did not receive any allowances that were out of the ordinary.

She acknowledged that while it is possible that allowances were paid to the lawmakers, these payments could be regular and statutory.
