If There’s Nothing In Political Struggle, Don’t Struggle, Akpabio Replies Fubara At Wigwes’ Funeral

March 9, 2024

Fubara had said, “What is this struggle all about? …with all the power financially, (Wigwe) couldn’t control life.”



Nigeria’s Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, told the governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, that if there is nothing in the struggle for politics, he (Fubara) should remove himself from the acclaimed struggle.

Akpabio stated this during his speech and tribute at the funeral of the former CEO of Access Bank and banking icon, Herbert Wigwe, in response to Fubara’s comment directed to the political class who attended Wigwe’s funeral.

The River’s State governor, during his speech at the funeral service, had said, “What is this struggle all about? You want to kill, you want to bury, what is it all about? This is a man, he’s not a politician. He made his money through us, our investments.

“He has the world in his palm financially. He controls even the political classes. But today, with all the power financially, couldn’t control life.

“Is it not enough today to ask ourselves why are we struggling? Why are we not making impact in the life of our people? Please, political class, let’s go home with that question, and be answering it in our minds, and reflecting it in what we do.”

In response, Akpabio, while mourning Wigwe, said, “We’re not going to cry in one day alone, we’ll cry so many days. When you look at the university, you will cry. When you pass through his personal house and edifice, you will cry. Any of the Access Bank branches worldwide, whether the one in Dubai, or whether the one in Kenya or anywhere, you will cry. The children that he touched, those that he sent to school and the lives he touched, when they are talking about it and they mention his name, you will cry.

“Then you will ask yourself, just like Governor Fubara said, what is the struggle all about? Your excellency, Governor Fubara, if there is nothing in the struggle, don’t struggle.”
