After his 61st birthday colloquium in Abuja on Thursday, Senate President Godswill Akpabio fainted.
The colloquium was held at the Transcorp Hilton hotel, which is where the event happened. The Punch reports that this event was the second half of his lavish 61st birthday party, which kicked off on Saturday, December 9th, in front of a sizable crowd at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom.
More information revealed that a viral video from the stadium showed Akpabio running and displaying his physical well-being while acknowledging the cheering crowd. However, when a Punch correspondent reached out to the Senate spokesperson, Yemi Adaramodu, he denied the incident.
Another source also buttressed it, saying, “After the Senate President escorted the President alongside some other senators, he came back and sat down when he slumped. He was resuscitated and then rushed to a private hospital not too far from Transcorp. He is still in the hospital.”
