Former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, may have failed to win back his seat at the Senate elections last week, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be active on the political scene.
He insisted that he did not lose Saturday’s election, calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare him winner.
According to results declared by INEC, Chris Ekpeyong was declared winner for polling 118,215 votes ahead of Akpabio who secured 83,158 votes in the Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district election.
Akpabio, speaking on Channels TV on Sunday, also denied pact with the APC leadership on being the next Senate President.
“I have no intention being senate president and I have never have.
“Those jubiliating now, on the 9th of March will be shocked. APC would win in Akwa Ibom despite defeat in National Assembly election.
“Those reports flying about that I bargained for Senate President with APC is a lie.
