10TH NASS: I’m still in race for Senate President – Akpabio
Says my purported withdrawal from Senate Presidency’s blackmail from hell
FORMER Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and Akwa Ibom North-West Senator-Elect, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has dismissed as false reports that he had quit the race for the Senate Presidency in the forthcoming 10th Senate, saying he is still in the contest.
Media reports, on Monday, said that the former Akwa Ibom State two-term governor and former minority leader of the Senate might drop his Senate Presidency ambition for a ministerial appointment in the cabinet of the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Akpabio was one of the seven presidential aspirants who stepped down for Tinubu at the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primaries.
