Smart Adeyemi is in Need of Urgent Mental Check – Abia Assembly

Demands Apology

The Abia State House of Assembly has reacted to the invectives poured on Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

In a press statement signed by the Speaker, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, and made available to the media in Umuahia on Wednesday, the Abia State House of Assembly said Smart Adeyemi “exhibited the height of legislative rascality which calls for an urgent examination of his state of sanity by his choice of words on the Governor of Abia State”.

The Lawmakers went further to demand an apology from Senator Smart Adeyemi “to the people and Governor of Abia State within 7 days from the date of this release failure of which the full paraphernalia of parliamentary framework through the relevant bodies shall be deployed to reciprocate such infantile vituperation unbecoming of a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.

Below is the full statement:

The attention of the Speaker, Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji MNSE, has been drawn to the statement credited to one Senator Smart Adeyemi from Kogi State describing the Abia State Governor, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu Ph.D in very unsavory, disrespectful and unprincipled terms and wish to state as follows:

(a) That the Abia State House of Assembly will not sit and watch its Governor brought to public ridicule and opprobrium;

(b) That the said Senator Smart Adeyemi has exhibited the height of legislative rascality which calls for an urgent examination of his state of sanity by his choice of words on the Governor of Abia State;

(c) That same Senator Smart Adeyemi apologizes to the people, and Governor of Abia State within 7 days from the date of this release failure of which the full paraphernalia of parliamentary framework through the relevant bodies shall be deployed to reciprocate such infantile vituperation unbecoming of a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria;

(d) That Senator Smart Adeyemi’s cupboard is filled with skeletons which shall be brought to public domain for daring to disparage the person of the Abia State Governor;

(e) That never has any person from Abia State openly insulted the Kogi State Governor under any guise and wondered why Senator Smart Adeyemi decided to descend to the gutters of vituperation, thus desecrating the sanctity of the National Assembly;

(f) That failure to apologise to Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu and the people of Abia State who he has dared to test their resolve, within the stipulated period, the consequences shall be better imagined;

(g) That Abia State cannot be ridiculed by anyone, no matter how highly or otherwise placed;

(h) That Senator Smart Adeyemi should make hay while the sun shines.
