BREAKING: End Of The Road, As Senator Godswill Akpabio Faces Immediate Arrest By IGP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for the immediate arrest of Senator Godswill Akpabio, for slapping an Official of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

This was made known in a Statement by Comrade Ini Ememobong, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, in Akwa Ibom State, on Saturday night.

The statement reads in full:
It is an irrevocable fact that Senator Godswill Akpabio is on a fast descent into political oblivion, due only to his act
ions and inactions.

Today, after the results of the units started trickling in, the outgoing Senator for Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, Senator Godswill Akpabio, while observing collation of results at the INEC Office, in Essien Udim, resorted to physically manhandling the INEC Electoral Officer for the Local Government and the PDP Chapter Chairman.

The Electoral Officer’s offence was his insistence on the confirmation of the total number of accredited voters using the Smart Card Reader, and his punishment was a set of hot double slaps ‘Ufia itah’, which threw the Officer to the ground.

The Chapter Chairman was a more lucky, as he received a punch on the face and a push before being handed over to his Aides for finishing touches. The Senator was accompanied by 83 Policemen, countless Soldiers, and an amounted personnel carrier.

Recall, that on the night of Saturday, 23rd February, 2019, when Senator Akpabio sought to introduce results from some units in Essien Udim, where elections did not hold and he was resisted by the Deputy State Chairman of the PDP, Hon. Sunyiekekere Inokon, he descended on Hon. Inokon and dealt him several blows, before leaving him to his Security Aides. 

Since the commencement of his journey to political wilderness, Senator Akpabio has exhibited uncommon thuggishness , to the surprise of onlookers.

As a party, we strongly condemn such ignoble actions, which are clearly straw clutching antics of a drawing man. No matter the issue, the Senator ought not resort to physical assault of the Electoral Officer, whose right to dignity of human person, is guaranteed by the Constitution.

We call on the Inspector-General to order the immediate arrest and prosecution of Senator Godswill Akpabio, for assault and electoral offenses. In fact, the Senator should be quarantined from the public space. We advise other people who may have contact with the out going Senator, to prepare themselves for self defence against the Senator.
