Why Akpabio withdrew from re-run, by PDP

Sat Dec 14th, 2019 - Akwa Ibom

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom State has asserted that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, withdrew from the re-run poll to avert a second defeat.

During a press conference at the party’s secretariat in Uyo yesterday, the publicity secretary, Mr. Ini Ememobong, described the former governor’s withdrawal from the re-run ballot as a joke.

He insisted that Akpabio and the All Progressives Congress (APC) must submit themselves for a “confirmatory defeat”.
