Senator Akpabio not behind campaign for Presidency in 2019


FB_20160504_14_34_35_Saved_Picture bThe attention of the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio has been drawn to publications on the social media about his purported posters campaigning for the Presidency in 2019.

We wish to state categorically that Senator Akpabio has no ambition of contesting for the Presidency in 2019 and is not behind such campaigns. It is the handiwork of mischief makers.

It is instructive that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he belongs to has zoned the Presidency to the North by 2019. The South-South has had its shot at the Presidency through Dr Goodluck Jonathan who handed over to President Muhammadu Buhari barely one year ago. And it is politically impracticable in the present Nigeria to expect another South-South man to aspire to succeed President Buhari.

We implore well meaning Nigerians to ignore these publications as they do not emanate from nor have the blessing of Senator Akpabio. The mischief-makers should desist from actions that tend to heat the polity.

Senator Akpabio as the Senate Minority Leader is presently concerned with working with other law makers to enact legislation that will improve the lives and living standard of Nigerians. He should not be distracted by a phantom campaign as such ambition only exist in the imagination of the mischief-makers.
