PANDEF: Those Calling For Akpabio’s Resignation Over Alleged Budget Padding Are Mischievous



With Akpabio As Senate President N/Assembly Is In Safe Hands, Says Omo-Agege

Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has said that “those who are calling for the resignation of the Senate President, His Excellency, Senator Godswill Akpabio, over the alleged budget padding are being mischievous and their intentions are known.”

This was contained in a statement on Friday signed by Dr. Ken Robinson, National Publicity Secretary, PANDEF.

According to the statement, “it is unfortunate that certain politicians and public commentators take pleasure in creating instability in the polity.”

Adding: “The allegations of budget padding, unspecified appropriations, or double budgets made by the suspended Senator Abdul Ningi have already been explained as misrepresentations.”

“We will not justify any wrongdoing, but, it is unacceptable that people would deliberately bid to tarnish the reputation of the first Senate President from the South-South after 40 years.
