Akpabio leads APC bigwigs to Wike’s house after emerging senate president

Senate President, Senator Godswil Akpabio, Deputy Senate President, Senator Jibrin Barau and some other APC bigwigs went to former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike’s house on Tuesday afternoon.

The visit was at Wike’s residence in Abuja.

At the meeting, Akpabio thanked Wike for all he did for the successes of APC.

Wike had said he was supporting the Senate Presidency ambition of Senator Godswill Akpabio because of the support he received from him during his governorship election.

Wike stated this last week while receiving members of the Stability Group, made up of Senators-elect, led by its Director General, Senator Ali Ndume.

Wike said, “This is the time for me to support him (Akpabio) because he supported me when I wanted to be the governor of River State.

“If truly we want this country to move forward from where we are today, I see nothing wrong in the ruling party picking who it thinks can work with the President-elect as the Senate President of the 10th Assembly.

“On this Akpabio and (Jibrin) Barau project we are together to make sure they win.

“Akpabio supported me during my governorship ambition. He stood by me all through and ensured that I won.

“I don’t pay back good with evil. This is pay back time for him. I will stand by him until he emerges the next Senate President. Our team would soon meet to take a position on your aspiration.

“Don’t be worried or disturbed with the contending forces against your aspiration, it is normal in politics.

“Power is not given on a silver platter, you fight for it. I am impressed that despite your endorsement by your party and the President-elect, you are still consulting your colleagues. That is the way it should be.

“Let us be fair to this country. If we continue this way, Nigeria will not succeed. Don’t waiver stay firm and you will win at the end of the day,” he stressed.
