Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio has urged Nigerians, particularly the political class, to desist from politicizing disasters and tragedies.
Akpabio in a statement issued from London where he is receiving treatment after surging a car crash in Abuja said the political class should work towards the unity and progress of the country without any political or ethnic coloration.
He thanked God for his surviving the accident and said he remained grateful to Nigerians for their prayers and display of concern.
The former governor specifically thanked President Mohamadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osibajo, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Dogara, his successor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, his colleagues in the National Assembly and former president Goodluck Jonathan for their concern and expression of love when the accident occurred.
He also expressed the appreciation of his family members to traditional and religious leaders, who he said have been calling on a daily basis to inquire about his well being.
