Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –
An indication that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has become jitery over the likelihod of losing the control of Akwa Ibom state to the All Progressive Congress (APC) as a result of Court order to conduct fresh governorship election, has led PDP stakeholders in Akwa Ibom North West Local Government Area to pass a vote of confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari.
Inconsistent Senator Godswill Akpabio (PDP-Akwa Ibom North West), in a surprise turn of loyalty, said that the PDP stakeholders were in support of Buhari’s war on corruption and terrorism, even as he expressed optimism that the PDP would be victorious if a rerun of the governorship election was held in the state, urging supporters of the PDP in the state to remain calm following the nullification of the governorship election of April 11 by the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.
The stakeholders meeting held on Friday in Essien UdI’m, where Akpabio, who is Senate Minority Leader, alleged that some people wanted to use the president victory’s in the 2015 general elections to foment trouble in the country.
“My Senatorial District PDP stakeholders passed a vote of confidence on Mr President and supported his anti-terrorism and anti-corruption war.
“We are urging him not to allow people to use his victory to foment trouble in the country so that Nigerians can have peace,” Akpabio said.
He said that the stakeholders’ meeting was convened to review the state of things in the senatorial district as well as Akwa Ibom and the nation.
Meanwhile, some PDP leaders in the state have expressed shock over Akpabio’s actions, citing his recent embattlement on the issues of his ordeal with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged N108.1b fraud, alleged ownership of Lekki Gardens Estate, among others as cause of the embarrassment he has caused the state.
They also expressed fear that PDP is no longer certain of being victorious at the forthcoming re-run gubernatorial polls, considering his antics and selfish interests but clever Akpabio has consistently denied all allegations.
