10th Nass Leadership: All Progressives Congress, Tinubu Allegedly Back Out Of Akpabio’s Endorsement
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on June 1, 2023
Following the protests and condemnation that have trailed the party’s endorsements of senator Godswill Akpabio as the leader of the tenth assembly, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress have reportedly withdrawn his support for him as the leader of the tenth assembly.
It was gathered on Wednesday that senators, mainly from the South West, have called for a meeting for today to take a decision towards reviewing their position on choice of leadership of the Senate.
According to a senator from one of the states in the South West, the meeting is for senators from the zone to know the outcome of a crucial meeting of the leading tendency among the senators-elect scheduled for Thursday.
However, President Bola Tinubu is said to have heeded the advice of his trusted political allies by tacitly withdrawing his support for the former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
