The Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu on Monday described Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District , Smart Adeyemi as a mad man.
Gov. Ikpeazu made this statement during the public presentation of a book written by the Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, entitled: “Made in Aba.”
Ikpeazu who was responding to Senator Adeyemi who called him a “drunkard” on the floor of the Senate on February 23, said that, “there was no need to begrudge a mad man.”
The Governor reportedly quoted prose master stylist, Chinua Achebe who once said, “if a mad man picks the clothes of a man taking his bath and runs away, if the man runs after the mad man, nobody will know who is mad.”
