Akpabio Denies Plot With El-Rufai Against Tinubu



Senator Godswill Akpabio has completely washed his hands off election campaign posters linking him with Mallam Nasir El-Rufai for the 2027 presidential election saying that he has no plans to challenge President Bola Tinubu.

Affirming that the president is doing a good job, Akpabio in a statement issued by Hon Eseme Eyiboh, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Akpabio affirmed that he is satisfied in his present role as president of the Senate giving legislative fulcrum for the administration to navigate his agenda.

He said:

“The attention of the office of the President of the Senate has been drawn to posters circulating in some parts of Kaduna associating the President of the Senate with a supposed El-Rufai 2027 political ambition.

“We want to state in very clear and unequivocal terms that Senator Godswill Akpabio does not have any intention to contest for president in 2027 nor is he nursing any ambition of a joint presidential ticket with Mallam Nasir El-Rufai or any other person by whatever name.

“This is the handiwork of mischief makers and familiar fifth columnists and those bent on opening up windows for tar brushing of the President’s loyalists. The action is spurious and mischievous.

“Senator Akpabio is presently preoccupied with the responsibility of collaborating and providing the required legislative support to President Bola Tinubu to reset Nigeria and make the nation regain its pride of place in the comity of nations. This is exactly what Senate President Akpabio, as the Chairman of the National Assembly has been doing since June 13, 2023; and has NEVER at any time contemplated running for President in 2027 or at any other time.

“It is therefore, embarrassing for anyone to link the person of Senate President Godswill Akpabio to an insipid presidential ambition, when a competent, trusted and tested leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR is in the driving seat, effectively navigating the contours of purposeful leadership and adept governance with his renewed Hope Agenda.

“We implore members of the public to disregard this unbridled mischief intended to distract Nigerians  from the purposeful and positive interventions the Senate under the leadership of Senator Godswill Akpabio is demonstrating. We also urge the Security  Agencies to undertake serious investigations to unravel the promoters of this ugly enterprise.” reports that Akpabio contested the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC with President Tinubu but stepped down for him at the convention ground hence the denial of a plot with El-Rufai.
