Senate President Akpabio Collapses After 61st Birthday Colloquium In Abuja

The birthday colloquium, held at the Congress Hall of Transcorp Hilton Hotel, marked the 61st birthday of Senate President Godswill Akpabio. 

The event brought together notable figures, including President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other dignitaries. However, things took a different turn as Akpabio on Thursday, December 14, collapsed at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja and was rushed to the hospital. 

The emergency occurred as Akpabio was bidding farewell to President Tinubu, leading to his immediate hospitalization.

The Senate President, having stabilized briefly, was swiftly taken to the hospital in Abuja, where he was wheeled into a specially designated room for further medical attention.


The Punch report added. “He has remained at the hospital,” one of the sources added. Meanwhile, at the event, President Tinubu expressed confidence in the collaborative efforts of the executive and legislative arms of government to address the challenges confronting Nigeria.

 “Having Senate President Akpabio, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Right Honourable Abbas, on my side is enough for me to succeed, and we will succeed," a statement signed by Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media & publicity quoted Tinubu as saying at the event.
