The All Progressive Congress, APC, through the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has replaced Senator Godswill Akpabio with Rt. Hon. Obongemem Ekperikpe Ekpo as the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District rerun
The changges came as a matter of concern to the All Progressive Congress to field a candidate for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District rerun election coming up on January 25, 2020.
It will be recalled that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio has declined to contest for the re-run.
The APC substituted Akpabio with Ekperikpe.
Many are of the opinion that Akpabio is afraid of the already known fate, that he cannot win the rerun because of the margin.
Meanwhile the re-run elections for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, ISD was supposed to be between Senator Chris Ekpeyong and Akpabio.
Chris Ekpeyong was the former Deputy governor of Akwa Ibom where Akpabio served as a Commissioner.
