Alabi had been accused of ‘sprinkling’ N2k after an Oghene cultural troupe sang his praises. He, however, set the record straight in the post shared on his Instagram page.

The lawmaker explained that he spent a total of N9k as opposed to the small amount that had been circulated on social media.

He added that it was the only amount he could afford as a government worker. Alabi wrote:

“As a government worker, I could not afford to spray (or was it sprinkle) more than this. And it was not 2k as bad-mouthed people said. It was 9k.”

In a different portion of his post, the lawmaker extended his appreciation to Cubana for inviting him to the ceremony.
