Share this:

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has denied any involvement in the circulation of posters in Kaduna State that suggest a political alliance with former Governor Nasir El-Rufai for the 2027 presidential election.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Akpabio’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eyiboh, said the circulation of the posters was the “handiwork of mischief makers”.

Eyiboh said Akpabio does not have any intention to contest for president in 2027, saying that any claim that his principal is nursing any ambition of a joint presidential ticket with El-rufai is “spurious and mischievous.”

“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,” the statement read.

Eyiboh emphasized that Akpabio is currently focused on his role of supporting President Bola Tinubu in resetting Nigeria and restoring the nation’s pride on the global stage.

Since assuming office on June 13, 2023, Akpabio has been dedicated to providing the necessary legislative support to the Tinubu administration and has not contemplated running for president at any point.

“It is 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,” the statement added.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard these misleading posters, which are seen as attempts to distract from the significant and positive interventions being made by the Senate under Akpabio’s leadership.

The statement also called on security agencies to investigate and identify those behind this “ugly enterprise.”

He also reassured Nigerians that the Senate President remains committed to his legislative duties and the ongoing collaboration with Tinubu to advance the nation’s development goals.
