The verbal engagement between senator Smart Adeyemi and Victor Ikpeazu the Governor of Abia state has generated controversies and counter responses.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described Senator Smart Adeyemi’s (APC Kogi) verbal attack on Abia State governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, as irresponsible.
A statement by the party’s national publicity secretary Kola Olagbondiyan noted Senator Adeyemi exhibited a high level of irresponsibility by using the privileges of the Senate Chamber to engage in unprovoked disparagement of Governor Ikpeazu and the entire people of Abia state, who had not offended him in any way.
The party spoke person said
“It is indeed unfortunate that Senator Adeyemi, whose words were respected by Nigerians while he was in the PDP has become so corrupted by his sojourn in the All Progressives Congress (APC), that he has completely lost his mind just to satisfy some new gods”
The party however urged Governor Ikpeazu not to be distracted by the unguarded statement Senator Adeyemi, but to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to his people.
