Senator Ireti Kingibe representing the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja in the Senate says she has not received any ‘prayers’ in her email from the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio.

Kingibe, a Senator under the platform of the Labour Party, LP, was reacting to Akpabio’s assurance during the day’s plenary session that “prayers” had been sent to the lawmakers as they embark on a recess.

The Senator spoke on Wednesday while featured on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme, where she maintained that she did not receive any allowances that were out of the ordinary.

“No, actually, I didn’t receive any prayers, but I’ll check my email for the prayers,” Kingibe said humorously, adding that she did not know for sure what Akpabio was talking about.

Recalled that the Senate President had during the Senate’s plenary session on Wednesday told Senators, “In order to enable all of us to enjoy our holidays, a token has been sent to our various accounts by the Clerk of the National Assembly”.

Akpabio later withdrew the statement, describing the supposed disbursement as “prayers” sent to their “mailboxes”.

While acknowledging that most people assumed allowances might have been paid to the lawmakers, he explained that such payments might be statutory things that we would have been paid anyway.
