OrderPaperToday – Following the victory of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday, Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio (PDP, Akwa-Ibom), has said the trial upset the business of the stock exchange and slowed down the economy while it lasted.
Akpabio stated this at the National Assembly on Thursday.
He said: “It’s a good sign that the economy is bouncing back as a result of the victory. I’m giving him an information of what happened at the stock exchange, shares prices went up.
“This is an indication that even the trial was slowing down the economy. I want to congratulate Nigerians.”
