Minority leader of the Senate and former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Godswill Akpabio said he could not speak with a certain Minister of Petroleum resources for three years even as a governor of an oil
producing state. Akpabio said this during the screening of the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Ibe Kachiukwu who is a ministerial
nominee, asking him if he will make himself accessible to those who need to see or speak with him.
When Senate President Bukola Saraki asked Akpabio what year the said minister was in office, Akpabio refused to say, only saying ‘we are now in change’. I bet he’s talking about Diezani.
