Fubara said:

“This one has to do with our political class, what is all this struggle all about? You want to kill, you want to bury, what is it all about?”

Replying to Fubara, the Senate President narrated how he was discouraged from going for the position of deputy governor.

Akapbio said:

“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. The then-deputy governor invited me and told me that this office had no money.

“There is nothing in it. I don’t know why you still insist on moving me from here and taking over.

“So, a woman who went with me said Your Excellency, then don’t wait for impeachment just resign since there is nothing in it.

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