Gov. Ikpeazu replies Sen. Adeyemi on supposed “Drunkard” claims


Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has described Senator Smart Adeyemi as a mad man after the latter called him a drunkard.



Their war of words have been on for some time now, after Adeyemi called Ikpeazu a drunkard, saying Abia is governed by drunkards.

The senator, while speaking on the floor of the upper chamber said some governors are doing their best, we are lucky to have a governor (Yahaya Bello) 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 neighboring 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.

In some states of Nigeria today, where we have highly intelligent people, highly educated people, very enterprising people like Abia but they are governed by drunkards.

The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man. Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate.

But Ikpeazu, hit back at a book presentation in Abuja titled: Made in Aba, The book was written by the Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe,

The governor, before ending his speech said for those who would think that the man coming behind the microphone to speak as Governor of Abia State is a drunkard, permit me to say that I dont drink at all and I dond begrudge those who drink.

Ikpeazu said in other places, even countries that have less problems, they discussed big issues of security, economy and infrastructure development.

They dont talk about what people do and what they do not do. For us leaders, it is a calling. If you are called to lead you are also called to be a mentor to young ones and what you say, how you carry yourself and the things you say and the times you say them speaks a lot about how serious you are as a person, he added in a report by The Nation.

Ikpeazu now borrowed a quote from a book written by the late legendary writer, Chinua Achebe to sum up his attack on Adeyemi, saying If a mad man picks your clothes while you are in the bathroom and takes off and you go after him naked, nobody would know who is mad after all.
