Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom is set to dethrone Senator Godswill Akpabio as a kingmaker in the state.
Senator Akpabio who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) this month had in a show of supremacy mobilised thousands of his supporters to witness his defection. The crowd was so massive that many say Udom was finished.
But to show that he is still popular, Udom today mobilised thousands of his supporters to fill the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, during his declaration for a second term in office and to debunk claims by his erstwhile benefactor.
Hear Udom: “Once again I will stand before the good people of Akwa Ibom State not as a master but as a servant not as a boss but a co-labourer” –
”I submit myself to continue with the good works that I have done and I seek your support for my candidature as Governor for second term under the PDP.”
