A former Nigerian senator, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the rift between Joy Nunieh, a former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), and Senator Godswill Akpabio, the minister of Niger Delta affairs.
Naija News reports that Sani’s reaction is coming after the Ex-NDDC director said on Monday that she once slapped Senator Akpabio for sexually harassing her.
The Ex-NDDC director who made the disclosure during an interview on Arise TV added that the incident occurred at the minister’s guest house in Abuja.
“Why did he not tell Nigerians that I slapped him in his guest house at Apo? I am the only woman that slapped Akpabio. He thought he could come up on me. He tried to harass me sexually,” she said.
“I slapped him. He tried to come on me. I am an Ogoni woman and nobody jokes with us. I showed Akpabio that Rivers women do not tolerate nonsense.”
Reacting to the claim on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Sani wrote: “Slapping a minister with such sounds as ‘tas’ or ‘tau’ takes a lot of courage.“
