Rottenness Of Nigeria’s Judiciary Made Akpabio Senator – Oby Ezekwesili
A former Minister for education, Oby Ezekwesili, has opined that Godswill Akpabio should have never become a senator neither a senate president.
Ezekwesili while reacting to the Tuesday fracas that ensued at the floor of the senate over minority leadership, said Akpabio has further assaulted the declining democracy in Nigeria.
She blamed Akpabi’s emergence as senator and senate president on ” the rottenness of Nigeria’s Judiciary that has obviously thrown caution to the wind and allowed itself to be corrupted and captured by decadent politicians.”
She wrote on X on Wednesday;
“Our sharply declining Nigerian Democracy was apparently further assaulted by @Senator_Akpabio who should never have been answering the title of Senator not to talk of “Senate President” were it not for the rottenness of the country’s Judiciary @NGCourtofAppeal
that has obviously thrown caution to the wind and allowed itself to be corrupted and captured by decadent politicians.
Mr Akpabio is regrettably caught up in the web of Hubris.
We should remind him and his band of Destroyers of Democracy the wise and legendary words of Marianne Williamson:
“Empires always have the hubris to think they are indestructible, when in fact they are always unsustainable.”
Meanwhile, it was hopeful to see Opposition Party voices finally doing what Democracy demands of them. Kudos to @SenatorNwoye, @ireti_kingibe and other Labor Party Senators.

It was what we expected of you on those egregious Luxury SUVs you collected or are waiting to collect.
You folks with the People’s Mandate can still lead the way out of the entrapment by this “Monopoly Democracy” of a political class rascality that is now exemplified by Mr Akpabio and his ilk.”
Trust Base News had reported that Akpabio on Tuesday, announced Senator Abba Morro (PDP, Benue South) as the new Senate Minority Leader and Senator Osita Ngwu (PDP, Enugu West) as the Minority Whip.
They replaced senators Simon Mwadkwon, who was formerly representing Plateau North, and Darlington Nwokocha, who represented Abia Central, respectively
Immediately after the Senate President announced the new Minority leaders, there was uproar on the floor of the Red Chamber as some LP senators opposed the announcement.
The aggrieved senators complained that the nomination was unfair to other political parties comprising the minority in the senate.
Anambra North Senator, Tony Nwoye, who rejected the nomination, yelled at Akpabio, saying “Are we your slaves, how can you be choosing minority leaders for us?”
