The reason I don’t smoke or drink is Akpabio
Senate President Godswill Akpabio has disclosed why he has never smoked cigarettes or taken alcohol.
Akpabio said his parental guidance prevented him from smoking and drinking.
He spoke at the grand finale of the National Quiz Competition organized by the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies for secondary school students in Enugu.
The Senate President also said the side effects of such substances prevented him from smoking and drinking.
According to Akpabio, “you should strive to become visionary leaders in the future by abstaining from things that would truncate your dreams and goals. In my own case, I have never smoked cigarettes or taken alcohol before. This is because, growing up, I listened to parental guidance.
“As a kid, I usually saw a man who would stagger on the road and fall into the gutters. I asked my mom, who told me it was because he was drunk. Some people would drink alcohol and drive home, while others would drink and drive to paradise.”
