Akpabio Rejected as Leader by Akwa Ibom Stakeholders


The Akwa Ibom State All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders have again rejected the choice of the Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Senator Godswill Akpabio, as leader of the party.

A group in the party led by a former two-time military administrator of Rivers and Ogun states, Group Captain Sam Ewang (retd), last month endorsed Akpabio as the APC leader.

But at an enlarged second stakeholders’ meeting of the party held on Sunday at SheerGrace Arena, the party kicked against the unilateral decision of the Ewang group to appoint Akpabio as the leader.

The meeting was attended by the National Caretaker Secretary of the APC, Senator John Akpanuodehe, the Managing Director of Oli and Gas Free Trade Zone Authority and Obong Umana Okon Umana.

Akpabio was absent, but sent an apology.
