The Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has convincingly stated President Bola Tinubu’s administration believes in the rule of law.
Akpabio, during the ministerial screening revealed the statement when screening Lateef Fagbemi. Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe reportedly asked Fagbemi, “What will your option be if the government you serve desecrates the Constitution and does not obey court orders?”
In a reaction, Akapbio objected to Abaribe question, maintaining that president Tinubu’s administration has the allegiance to the law.According to Akapbio: “I have a problem with the question; are you saying a government that has given so much to the rule of law would desecrate the Constitution? A government that swears to uphold the Constitution?”
“This is preemptive; this government is not even up to two months old; you should be talking about the previous government, not this one. This government is a corrective regime. This government of Bola Tinubu is out to correct Nigeria and believes in the rule of law.”
