Drama in the Senate: Akpabio’s Endorsement at Risk

Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom State, is currently serving as a senator representing the Akwa Ibom North-West district. He is seeking reelection in the 2019 elections, but his endorsement is at risk due to various political intrigues within the Senate. Some senators are reportedly opposed to Akpabio’s candidacy, and they are working behind the scenes to ensure that he is not endorsed.

One of the reasons for the opposition to Akpabio’s candidacy is reportedly his relationship with the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC). Akpabio was a member of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), before defecting to the APC in August 2018. Some senators are reportedly unhappy with Akpabio’s defection and are working to sabotage his candidacy.

Another reason for the opposition to Akpabio’s candidacy is reportedly his leadership style. Some senators have accused Akpabio of being too domineering and not allowing other senators to have a say in the affairs of the Senate. They believe that Akpabio’s leadership style is not conducive to the smooth running of the Senate and are therefore opposed to his candidacy.

10th NASS: Will Akpabio Survive the Intrigues?

The political intrigues surrounding Akpabio’s endorsement have left many wondering if he will survive the 10th National Assembly. Some believe that Akpabio is too powerful to be toppled and will emerge victorious despite the opposition to his candidacy. Others, however, believe that the intrigues are too intense, and Akpabio may not be able to survive.

Despite the uncertainties surrounding Akpabio’s candidacy, his supporters remain optimistic. They believe that Akpabio’s track record as a senator and former governor of Akwa Ibom State speaks for itself and will ultimately win him the endorsement of the Senate. They also believe that Akpabio’s defection to the APC was a strategic move that will ultimately benefit Akwa Ibom State.

In conclusion, the drama surrounding Akpabio’s endorsement is just one of many intrigues in the Nigerian Senate. The 10th National Assembly promises to be full of surprises, and it remains to be seen if Akpabio will emerge victorious despite the opposition to his candidacy. Nonetheless, the people of Akwa Ibom State are watching and waiting to see what will happen next.
