I’m Still in Race for Senate President – Akpabio


Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and Akwa Ibom North-West Senator-Elect, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has dismissed false rumours that he had quit the race for the Senate Presidency in the forthcoming 10th senate, saying he is still in the contest.

Media reports, on Monday, said that the former Akwa Ibom State two-term governor and former minority leader of the Senate might drop his Senate Presidency ambition for a ministerial appointment in the cabinet of the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Picking holes in the withdrawal from the Senate Presidency race report, Akpabio said that it was the handiwork of blackmailers.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Jackson Udom, the Senator-elect said, the story is complete falsehood and blackmail as he noted the lies lack substance and only exists in the minds of its purveyors.

“Please, tell them that the story is complete falsehood and blackmail cooked and served from the pit of hell. These tissues of lies lack substance and only exist in the minds of its purveyors and backers.”
