In the race for the Senate Presidency seat of the 10th National Assembly, as candidates vie for the position, two influential support groups, namely the Arewa Women for Tinubu/Shetima and the 100% Focus Group Movement, have pledged their support to Senator Godswill Akpabio, endorsing him as their preferred candidate for the Senate President role.

The decision of the All Progressive Congress, APC to endorse the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Akpabio, as the one to lead the red chambers of the 10th National Assembly was taken in the best interest of the nation, hence the support by the two groups.

Akpabio is well known to have passion for the Renewed Hope project that is undiluted and nonnegotiable, adding that he is someone that does not discriminate against any group, region or religion.

The leader of Arewa Women for Tinubu/Shetima, Hajia Sa’adatu Garba Dogonbauchi who alongside with the chairman 100% Focus on Jagaban briefed newsmen today in Abuja, said the decision of the APC to endorse the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Akpabio, as the one to lead the red chambers of the 10th National Assembly was taken in the best interest of the nation, hence the support by the two groups.

Dogon Bauchi called on other candidates in contention for the Senate Presidency to step down for Godswill Akpabio, who she noted remains the right man for the plum job at this time of the nation, stressing that he is well known to have passion for the Renewed Hope project that is undiluted and nonnegotiable, adding that he is someone that does not discriminate against any group, region or religion.

“His sterling performances and achievements as governor of Akwa Ibom state, made Nigerians have firm confidence in his capacity to replicate the same feat as Senate President of Nigeria.

“As expected, a new era of renewed hope has finally presented itself to the Nigeria populace via a credible general election that has ushered in the preferred choice of the eligible Nigerians in February 2023 through the polls.

“Now that the stage is set for the position of the number 3 seat to be taken, a couple of names have sprang up to that effect, but one of such that keeps ringing the bell of assurance, positivity and optimism in the ears of the Nigerians is no other person but Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio with Jibrin to deputize. She explained.

100% Focus Group Chairman, Dr. ibrahim Mohammed said Akpabio is a political enigma that is widely preferred by  APC, this of course isn’t just based on sentiments or favouritism, rather it proves confidence, capacity, track records, integrity, experience, credibility not forgetting antecedents that precedes the two times Governor of the State of Akwa Ibom.

“This in essence proves that the Nigerians in general will be more comfortable and rest assured with such a combination (Akpabio/Jibrin), as it will enhance the much-required unity, not forgetting ethnic and religious tolerance across the whole nation,” he said.
