Akpabio Gets A Slim Second Chance To Become Senator Again

Since the 2019 general election, Godswill Akpabio has had his eyes in the senate. He was offered a ministerial position by President Buhari in appreciation for his defection from the opposition party to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

However, Akpabio continued to fight his case in court claiming that the senatorial election in which he contested and lost was rigged in favor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hi former party.

Recently, the Appeal court passed its judgment in Akpabio's favor but with a clause.

The election was canceled in one local government and a rerun was ordered by the court. Akpabio's main rival Ekpeyong is taking the lead and it is projected that if Akpabio can get 100% votes from the local government, he will be declared the winner.

But whether that is attainable or not remains an issue for another day. Akpabio may even not win the rerun but he has shown his political relevance to the people of the state.
