“It is crystal clear and from all indications, that all contending parties on the choice of the Presidency of the 10th Senate of the National Assembly will finally resolve to allow the leadership of the Senate go to Senator Godswill Akpabio, APC North West Senatorial District (Ikot Ekpene) from Akwa Ibom State, who has been the strongest, populous and most revered candidate for the seat”, Adams said.
Barrister Cecilia who stated that electing Senator Akpabio as the Senate President will be doing justice to the South South Zone of the country which has never produced a presidency of the Senate, asserts further that it will do good to the present structure of political leadership by having an astute political might of Senator Akpabio to work with President Ahmed Bola Tinubu who has seen that quality in him and thus gave him his nod and endorsement from the onset.
She said beside creating a healthy political atmosphere for the Executive and Legislative arms of government to work in harmony, it will afford Nigerians to enjoy the dividends of democracy by bringing progress and developments that will take the country to higher levels devoid of rancour associated with a divided Legislative and Executive arms of government that retards the progress of the country from achieving meaningful growth and development.
Barrister Cecelia noted that the President and Commander-in-Chief has shown signs of commitment and dedication to serve Nigeria relentlessly for its progress and development, and that with Senator Akpabio as President of the Senate, President Tinubu is sure to achieve greater heights in delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Nigeria.
Barrister Cecilia who spoke to newsmen in Abuja over the weekend, noted that with more than 85 per cent endorsements by the 109 senators elect in the 10th Senate, said victory for Senator Akpabio’s emergence as President of the 10th Senate is assured as voting at the end of the session will massively be in his favour.
