Election 2027: Akpabio rejects poster linking him with El-Rufai

The office of the Nigerian Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio has labeled the posters circulating in some part of Kaduna state linking the number three citizen with former governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai in a 2027 political romance as fake.

In a statement signed by Rt Hon Eseme Eyiboh Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President of the Senate he noted that the said posters are not only mischievous but they are also frivolous.

The statement read further;

“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,” the statement concluded.
