Godswill Akpabio and Udom Emmanuel

Senate Minority leader Senator Godswill Akpabio has given Governor Udom Emmanuel conditions for supporting his re-election.

Akpabio, who alleged that his successor neglected his Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District in terms of development, said he might not support Emmanuel’s second term bid, if the injustice continued.

Speaking at the annual get-together organised by the Deputy Governor, Chief Moses Ekpo, to fete the people of Ikot Ekpene at Independent Hall, Abak, Akpabio warned that the era of carry-go politics is gone and urged the governor to brace itself for the task.

The former governor said he would only endorse Emmanuel’s re-election, if the policies and programme were not discriminatory against Ikot Ekpene.

He said some projects embarked on by his (Akpabio’s) administration, including the multi-million naira Four Points-by-Sheraton Hotel at Ikot Ekpene and the dualised Uyo-Ikot Ekpene road had been abandoned by Governor Emmanuel.
