Chris Ekpenyong of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has unseated Godswill Akpabio of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the Senate with a wide margin.
Ekpenyong kicked out the ‘uncommon’ former governor with 136,373 votes, while Akpabio got 67,487 votes.
Ekpenyong will now represent Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district.
Godswill Akpabio’s global honeymoon is over. Six months after joining the APC, his foes have him figured out.
