The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has explained why he collapsed after his 61st birthday colloquium on Thursday.

Akpabio had, after the event, reportedly slumped while seated on a chair at the hotel where the event was held earlier.


But speaking to reporters on Friday, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state said, “What eventually happened after the event was a show of humanity.

“I went home and I called my doctors, and I was assured that I have malaria, mingled with stress, which could also be described in another way as exhaustion.


“In fact, anybody could be exhausted. Please drink water regularly so that you don’t get exhausted.”

Akpabio further expressed that he isn’t perturbed by the incident, as the National Assembly is always ready and willing to forge ahead with its duties.


He said, “This is to say that the work goes on. I want to assure Nigerians that the National Assembly is intact and we are still going on with our duty and our appropriation.


“We will resume on December 20. But before then, the various committees must have finished their work to enable us to meet the target of passing the budget before the end of the year for the president to append his signature.”
