Akpabio speaks from London, says ‘I thank God I survived’

The Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, has disowned twitter and Facebook accounts opened on his behalf, advising those who are doing so to desist from such, as he has not authorized or caused to be opened any Facebook or Twitter account on his behalf.


He also charged Nigerians, particularly the political class, to desist from politicizing disasters and tragedies, but work towards the unity and progress of the country without any political or ethnic coloration.

Akpabio, who stated this in a statement he personally signed, thanked God for his survival and said he remained grateful to Nigerians for their prayers and display of concern.

The former governor specifically thanked President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President  Yemi Osinbajo, senate president, Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Dogara, his successor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, his colleagues in the National Assembly and former president Goodluck Jonathan for their concern and expression of love when the accident occurred.

He also expressed appreciation of his family members and traditional and religious leaders, who have been calling on a daily basis to inquire about his well being.
