Nobody Will Recognise Nigeria When Tinubu Completes 8 Years – Akpabio

In his latest comedy-like address, Akpabio on Tuesday told Nigerians not to worry about the challenges facing Nigeria but only pray for the success of the Tinubu's administration, saying it would pay off in the next seven years.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, in another public gaffe on Tuesday, said nobody would recognise Nigeria again by the time President Bola Tinubu completes his “seven years” in office, obviously gifting the latter a second term.

Akpabio weeks ago had said the old Nigerian national anthem was responsible for heightened banditry and insecurity in the country.

In his latest comedy-like address, Akpabio on Tuesday told Nigerians not to worry about the challenges facing Nigeria but only pray for the success of the Tinubu's administration, saying it would pay off in the next seven years.

Speaking during the flag-off of the Kugbo Bus Terminal in Abuja on Tuesday, Senator Akpabio said, “I have no doubt that by the time the president is through with his tenure in the country, seven years from today, many people will not recognise FCT, they will not recognise Nigeria again.

“So, all I can say is: let us continue to pray for him and be hopeful that the challenges you see today, tomorrow, you will see them no more.

“He did it in Lagos and today, Lagos is one of the best; one of the largest economies in Africa when we are talking about cities.”

On the project, the lawmaker said, “This is for me another major wonder of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's administration. This is a way to cater to a city of this nature. This is a way to cater to the people of the area councils, the FCT residents and visitors alike.”

Akpabio, who also extolled President Tinubu for picking former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike as the FCT Minister further said, “So, I believe that you are a square peg in a square hole and I must thank the President for having the eyes to pinpoint those who can perform and bringing them.”
