Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Ali Ndume, has said that the Upper legislative chamber would no hesitate to sanction its President, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, if the later was found wanting over his allowance comment.
According to Sen. Ndume, “It’s common knowledge that if any employee is going on leave, he/she is entitled to a leave grant. That was the money we received, and it is nothing unusual or special.
“All senators received two million naira. And I am making this comment with a heavy heart because he [Akpabio] is the cause of this controversy.

“He created an impression as if we were given some special or huge amounts of money. What’s the big deal if I receive a two million naira allowance in my capacity as a senator?
“He made a very wrong statement, and I warned him immediately that his comments were unbecoming of an elder.
“In fact, we are even planning to take drastic action against him if he continues making unguarded statements and acting as if we are kids.”
