Senator Godswill Akpabio has again affirm his confidence in the political course of returning Governor Udom Emmanuel as Governor by 2019. Akpabio was speaking on friday at Ikot Ekpene during the final burial rite of the former Paramount Ruler of Ikot Ekpene local Government, Akwa Ibom State.
On Governor Udom Emmanuel’s second term bid, the Senate Minority leader said “Governor Udom Emmanuel is the best Governor in a time like this, in this recession, a man that’s able to unite the past, the present and the future.
The right man to be Governor in 2015, the correct man to be Governor in 2019 AND the man that ‘ll be Governor till 2023″.
It can also be recalled that Senator Akpabio had recently during the stakeholders meeting of the People’s Democratic Party at Government House, Uyo moved a motion for Governor Udom Emmanuel’s sole candidature for PDP.
Despite Akpabio’s verbal commitment to the incumbent, analysts have continued to warn against trusting former Governor Akpabio bearing in mind that he had in the past promised and betrayed the likes of Umana Okon Umana, Nsima Ekere, Bishop Samuel Akpan and many other former allies of his.
