Senate President Akpabio Collapses After His Birthday Colloquium In Abuja, Wheeled On Stretcher Into ‘Special Room’ In Hospital


ABUJA, Nigeria – In a shocking turn of events, Nigerian Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, collapsed yesterday afternoon shortly after the conclusion of his 61st birthday colloquium held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja.

Sources close to the Senator confirmed to SaharaReporters that Akpabio slumped while seeing off President Bola Tinubu, who was among the dignitaries present at the event. The incident sent shockwaves through the gathering, with immediate medical attention provided to stabilize the Senator.

“Senate President Akpabio collapsed today after his 61st birthday colloquium in Abuja while seeing the President off,” a source revealed. “He was briefly stabilized before being rushed to the NNPC hospital in Abuja where he was wheeled into a special room on a stretcher.”

The source further stated that Akpabio remains hospitalized at this time, and the details of his condition are yet to be officially disclosed. However, concerns about his well-being are understandably high, given the sudden nature of the incident.

The news of Akpabio’s collapse comes just hours after President Tinubu delivered a speech at the colloquium, emphasizing the need for cooperation between the executive and legislative arms of government to tackle the challenges facing Nigeria. The event, attended by several prominent figures in Nigerian politics and business, was meant to celebrate Akpabio’s birthday and contributions to public service.

The sudden turn of events has inevitably shifted attention from the celebratory nature of the colloquium to the Senator’s health and the potential implications for Nigerian politics. While the details surrounding his condition remain unclear, Akpabio’s hospitalization adds another layer of uncertainty to the already complex political landscape in the country.

This is a developing story, and further updates are expected as more information becomes available. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional details as they emerge.
