Akpabio, APC Threaten To Boycott Rerun Election by Islie: 12:44pm On Nov 14
Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Senator Godswill Akpabio and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) have threatened to boycott the rerun ordered by the Court of Appeal in Essien Udim local government area.

The rerun is to determine the actual winner of the Akwa Ibom Northwest senatorial district between Akpabio and the incumbent, Senator Chris Ekpenyong of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Akpabio and his party have insisted that they won’t participate in the rerun if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) does not remove the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mike Igini, from the state.

The appellate court last Saturday ruled that Ekpenyong did not win in Essien Udim, Akpabio’s council area and therefore ordered a rerun in 90 days.

But the Director-General of Godswill Akpabio Campaign Organisation, Dr. Chris Akpan, in Uyo yesterday gave the indication that his principal may back out of the election.

Akpan said there was no guarantee that INEC in the state under Igini would be unbiased in the conduct of the rerun, insisting that a new electoral umpire must be assigned to carry out the exercise.

“What will be the need for Akpabio to participate in the rerun with Igini as the State INEC REC? Of course he (Igini) is going to repeat the fraud he committed in the last election.

“We insist that there must be a level playing ground for everybody. With Igini the ground will not be level so we won’t participate.

“That is the position of my party and also my position as the DG of Akpabio’s campaign organisation.

“Why shouldn’t INEC do away with him (Igini)? We had complained about this man but they allowed him work against the APC and its candidates in the last election,” he said.

Mumu!

Haven seen the hand writing on the wall, he wants to use Igini as excuse to run from defeat and not losing both ministerial and senatorial positions.

Igini is the only INEC REC I can vouch for. When he was in Edo, he did not allow PDP have their wsy when Edo ppl voted Oshiomole, so why will APC now tag him PDP REC now the tide is against them?

Igini should be made INEC Chairman cos he has more integrity than this crook called Mahmoud

Igini is one of most trusted INEC commissioners in this Luggardian contraption, he exposed the INEC server that FG budgeted hundreds of millions that remains unaccounted by Prof Mahmoud.
It's better for Akpabio to remain in his current capacity as Minister, he remains very popular in Akwaibom but in a party that has not shown itself to be accommodating the aspirations of people from that state

He doesn't have any intention of winning, he just wants to show the ingini that power pass power, for refusing to collect bribe and declaring him the winner when he wanted him to.

Akpabio knows that with the kind of money he would make as Nddc chairman he cannot make it as Senator.

Senators beg Nddc chairman for projects.

Akpabio knows that the next time he is going to senate its with pressure
