In his reaction to reports of his being rushed to the hospital, Akpabio said: “I have been reading through the social media but I’m happy the Press Corps did not join the show of propaganda.

“What eventually happened after the event was a show of humanity.

“I went home and I called my doctors and I was assured that I have malaria, mingled with stress, which could also be described in another way as exhaustion.


“In fact, anybody could be exhausted. Please, drink water daily so that you don’t get exhausted.

“This is to say that the work goes on. I want to assure Nigerians that the National Assembly is intact and we are still going on with our duty, our appropriation.

“We will resume on 20th December. But before then, the various committees must have finished their work to enable us meet the target to pass the budget before the end of the year for the President to append his signature.”
