Coalition of Student Groups In Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District, Endorse Akpabio For Senate

T he Coalition of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District Students has formally endorsed the senatorial ambition of former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio, just as it described as barbaric and laughable allegation that they were given money for the endorsement.

The group, in a communique issued at the end of their meeting on Sunday in Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area of the state and titled; Akpabio Remains Students’ Choice And Sole Candidate In The 2023 Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District Election, noted that, “it will be barbaric for anyone to think we were financially induced, pressured or persuaded to endorse Akpabio”.

The communique reads:

“Some days ago, The Nation Online of October 25/10/2022 and other social media space was awash with comments on the defamatory remark against Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio, by some so-called Students of the Senatorial District, challenging our noble course.

“It is a noble act to stand up for Students who are seemingly helpless and defenceless, it is also noble to rise to the rescue of a suicidal set of people, however, such acts of nobility, when channeled through careless utterances of wickedness, placed with pretense of human face, can only be likened to fixing a golden ring on the snout of a pig.

“For Students who constantly project themselves as leaders of tomorrow, we are shocked at the level of deprivation and degradation which recently characterise words and actions from these individuals.

“For the avoidance of doubt, it constitutes a National and International disgrace when students seeking to become future leaders exhibit huge ignorance regarding the choice of how, when, and whom to lead them, but fall flat to appreciate crumbs at a time when the Senatorial District is on an academic wheelchair.

“It is very safe to say that it would be IRRESPONSIBLE for any individual, organisation or group not to support Chief Godswill Obot Akpabio to be our next SENATOR for AKWA IBOM NORTH-WEST (IKOT EKPENE SENATORIAL DISTRICT) at this critical time of our existence in as students.

” Akpabio has become a household name in the political lineage of Akwa Ibom State hence, it will be barbaric for anyone to think we were financially induced, pressured or persuaded to endorse him.

“For the records, the COALITION OF IKOT EKPENE SENATORIAL DISTRICT STUDENTS’ has not met, called, or been bribed by anyone or Chief Dr. Godswill Obot Akpabio CON as purported by the so-called students’ leaders.

May we remind the so-called students’ leaders that we are focused, determined and dedicated to the course for the emergence of Senator Akpabio at the 2023 polls for the betterment of our Senatorial District and no blackmail can stop this noble course. Hence, pulling down leaders will NEVER make them one.

“Their closest call to leadership will be to lead a group of hoodlums and evil-minded people like them. Activism is a noble course, mixing it with hooliganism will only take the Senatorial District backward.


God bless Akwa Ibom State
