The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, is reported to have collapsed on Thursday, Dec. 14, after his 61st birthday colloquium in Abuja.
The Senate President had on Saturday, 9th December, started his birthday anniversary at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom with a mammoth crowd in attendance.
On Thursday, his birthday colloquium was held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel.
After the event, Akpabio slumped while seated in a chair, multiple sources claimed, according to Punch.
A source said, “The Senate President must have been tired. He was seated after the colloquium and the next thing was that he had slumped.
“It was when people saw that he had slumped that he was rushed for medical attention.”
Another source said, “After the Senate President escorted the President alongside some other senators, he came back and sat down when he slumped. He was resuscitated and then rushed to a private hospital not too far from Transcorp. He is still in the hospital.”
However, one of the Senate President’s media aides, Jackson Udom, said nothing of such happened, and at no time was his principal wheeled out of Transcorp.
He said, “The report is not true. The Senate President didn’t collapse neither was he wheeled out. Let the people sharing the story provide a picture of such happenings.”
