Senate President, Godswill Akpabio and Rivers Governor, Siminalayi Fubara were in war of words on Saturday during the burial of the late Access Bank Chief Executive Officer, Herbert Wigwe, wife, Chizoba and son, Chizi.

This was revealed in a trending video shared on X on Saturday.

Fubara, while giving his remarks at the burial had said: “This one has to do with our political class, what is all this trouble all about.

“You want to kill, You want to bury, what is it all about.”

Akpabio, while making his own remarks, went on to reply to the governor thus: “What is the struggle all about? I will answer you.

“The struggle, we are not talking politics. In 2006 I wanted to be a Deputy Governor, so the then deputy Governor invited me and told me that this office has no money, there is nothing in it. I don’t know why you still insist on moving me from here and take over.

“So the woman who went with me, said ‘your excellency, then don’t wait for impeachment, just resign since there’s nothing in it’.

“And he stood up and started punching the woman, and I told him, your excellency, don’t punch her, she’s telling the truth. There’s nothing in the office that’s why I want it, because you’re too big for it.

“So your excellency Governor Fubara, if there’s nothing in the struggle, don’t struggle.”

Pmnews.ng recalls that the remains of the late Wigwes arrived Rivers State for burial on Friday.

Recall that the trio, Wigwe, wife and son died on February 9, 2024, in an unfortunate helicopter crash in California, United States of America.
