Politics: Prosecute Me if You Find Any Foreign Account Bearing My Name - Senator Akpabio Tells FG

The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio has challenged the Federal Government to seize and prosecute him if it finds any money in a foreign bank account bearing his name as he is allegedly accused.

He made this known in a statement on Friday by his media assistant, Anietie Ekong while denying owning any property in Dubai, United Arab Emirate or any other foreign country.
He also debunked reports that accused him of making a secret attempt to withdraw $7.2 billion from banks in Dubai, United Arab Emirate, through channels in the Central Bank of Nigeria.

“We challenge these purveyors of falsehood to publish the full details of the purported $7.2 billion account and we urge the Federal Government of Nigeria to seize such sum and prosecute the owner if it does exist. People should learn to accept the outcome of elections and stop this kind of dangerous propaganda in the name of politics,” said Akpabio.

It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had recently signed agreements with the United Arab Emirate on the repatriation of Nigeria’s stolen funds deposited in that country.
