However, responding in an interview on Arise Television, to her allegation, Akpabio asked her “to go to the hospital; see a doctor; get some injection and relax.”

“I am not saying anything is wrong with her. But something is wrong with her temperament. You do not need to ask me. But you ask about four other husbands she married.

“She was not relieved of her appointment because of corruption. But she was relieved of her appointment because of insubordination. My ministry that supervised her wrote seven letters to her. She never responded. And then she said she was bigger than the Minister of Niger Delta.”

Akpabio in the interview lamented that the NDDC became a place where stakeholders used to make money for elections. He, however, said that after making the money they never won the elections because it was ill-gotten money.

Senate Panel on Friday concluded investigation into award N40 billion contract by the Interim Management Committee of NDDC.
