Nsikak Pius a United Stated based lawyer has blasted former Senate Minority leader, Godswill Obot Akpabio for using security agencies who are sympathetic to the All Progressive Congress (APC) to prevent the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from announcing the result of Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District.
In a chat with our reporter, Barrister Pius wonders what Akpabio was hoping to gain after being rejected by 8 out of the 10 Local government area in the Senatorial district he was hoping to represent
According to him, Senator Akpabio should have congratulated the winner of the election, Christopher Ekpenyong and allow peace to reign rather than creating a Warsaw like scene that may dent his image in the international scene.
He noted that if security agencies does not cautioned their personnel to shy away from act capable of trauncating democracy, Akpabio can rain down his much promised Warsaw on the people of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district.
“Truth be told, he has lost, the World knows that he has lost. Even without the result of Essien Udim, 8 out of the 10 local government area he wish to represent has rejected him, that’s the voice of the majority,” Pius noted.
“If I was in his shoes, I would have congratulated Chris Ekpenyong, then pray and hopes that Buhari wins. What he is doing is unfortunate…. if security agencies does not cautioned their personnel Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district may witnessed the much talk about Warsaw soonest.
“I have spoken with EU observers and they have promised to filed a complain against Akpabio if he does not back down on his actions to throw Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district into crisis.” He added..
