Godswill Akpabio, the senate president, found himself in an embarrassing situation after revealing that money has been sent to senators to enjoy their recess.

On Monday, the upper legislative chamber concluded the screening and confirmation of President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial nominees.

Thereafter, the senators adjourned the plenary to September 26.

Addressing his colleagues before the adjournment motion was moved, Akpabio said money has been sent by Magaji Tambuwal, clerk of the national assembly, to the senators to “enjoy” their holidays.

“To enable all of us to enjoy our holidays, a token has been sent to our various accounts by the clerk of the national assembly,” he said.

The senate president was quickly informed by his colleagues that he was speaking before live television and press cameras.

Upon realising the magnitude of his remarks, Akpabio swiftly beat a retreat.

“I withdraw that statement,” he said.

“To allow you to enjoy your holiday, the senate president has sent prayers to your mailboxes to assist you to go on a safe journey and return.”

Akpabio’s off-the-cuff comment raises further questions about the allocation of funds to lawmakers.

The salaries and allowances of federal lawmakers are often shrouded in secrecy.
