APC Will Take Over Akwa Ibom In 2027 – Akpabio Insists, Gives Reason


Senate President Godswill Akpabio has insisted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will secure control of Akwa Ibom state after the 2027 general elections.

In a recent address during a stakeholders’ meeting in Uyo on Friday, Akpabio said the party will overcome its internal conflicts in the state.

Akpabio vowed to streamline the APC in Akwa Ibom. He said, “Either you belong to us or to them. There should not be in-between.”

“I’ve mandated the Chairman of the party to set up a reconciliation committee in the state, we have to bring our members together. If we are united, there is no barrier that we can’t break.


“I pray against confusion among my leaders not in Uyo alone but in all the senatorial districts, we must reconcile among ourselves,” he said.

He said it is unthinkable for the Senate President to hail from a party without a corresponding governor in the state.

‘’It will be an aberration for the number three citizen not to have a governor from the same party at the end of an election.

“You know wherever the senate president is, that is where the party is.

“Is it possible that Nigeria will give Akwa Ibom the number three citizen and at the end of the election, it will not produce an APC governor,” he said.

Akpabio further blamed lack of coordination for the APC’s failure to secure key senate seats in the 2023 elections.

“So, I didn’t know whether you were serious, but in 2027, I want to assure you that we will be more serious.

“I tried to call them, give me your campaign plan, they refused to give it to me. Is there any where I will enter that people will not vote for APC?

“Look at what the other side did; they gave President Tinubu 120,000 votes but Uyo and Eket combined ended up with only 40,000 votes,” he said.
