The Senator Godswill Akpabio Senatorial Campaign Committee has viewed as laughable the frenzy on the social media alleging that Senator Godswill Akpabio, has been disqualified from the senatorial race of the North-West Senatorial District.
The jubilation by opponents is, according to the Directorate of Media and Publicity of Godswill Akpabio Senatorial Campaign Organization, simply expressive of the pall of fear the advent of Senator Akpabio into the race has cast upon his opponents.
“The actions of Akpabio’s opponents and traducers seem to be ignorant of the fact that the opinion of an INEC officer especially when it fails to address a matter with cognizance to law/merits can not be deemed with any note of finality.
“The senatorial ambition of Senator Godswill Akpabio, CON, met all parameters of the Electoral Act and the Constitution, giving room for any erroneous exclusion to be addressed judicially.
“It is already foreseeable that their short-lived joy would soon peter out when the dubiously guided manipulation orchestrated by forces from the axis of evil is brought to rubbles as it shall soon be.
The Godswill Akpabio Senatorial Campaign Organization enjoins teeming supporters of Senator Akpabio to remain calm and not be bothered with the current development as the law precludes INEC from rejecting names from parties which conduct its primaries in substantial compliance with guidelines. The matter on the hand therefore shall soon be addressed by the law with the assurance of a favourable outcome for Senator Akpabio.”
