However, in a candid statement made to his followers and journalists in Abuja on Friday, Akpabio provided clarity on the situation, attributing his condition to a battle with malaria coupled with exhaustion.


Akpabio shared, “After the event, it was a show of humanity, so I went home and called my doctors, and I was told I have malaria mingled with stress, and the stress could be described in another way – exhaustion.”
