Mr. Daniel Bwala who is the spokesman of the Presidential Campaign Council of Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has offered reasons why Godswill Akpabio would not be elected as Senate President.
Bwala made this known in a tweet on Tuesday morning posted on his Twitter handle.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that Akpabio, a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, had been nominated by his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to become the Senator President of the 10th National Assembly.
The former governor faces stiff competition from Senators, Ali Ndume, Orji Uzor Kalu, and Jibrin Barau, amongst others.

In his tweet, Bwala said Akpabio’s bid to run for the leadership of the upper chamber is hindered by a thick, heavy cloud.
Bwala wrote, ‘Godswill Akpabio would not be elected as Senate President. The cloud gathering against his aspiration is heavy and thick. It is not motivated by religion, but regional and as well as the revenge of the coalition of all foes. Most of the senators following him are not with him.’
In another report, the outgoing President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari have asserted that he had no doubt that the incoming government of President-elect, Bola Tinubu, would sustain the tempo of his administration.
Speaking at the Presidential Fleet Review, 2023, at the Naval Dockyard Limited, Victoria Island, Lagos, Buhari said he was pleased with the military’s combat readiness.
He said he had confidence that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, would continue to provide crucial support to the Nigerian Navy, maintaining the positive trajectory achieved during his tenure.
The Presidential Fleet Review will possibly be the last by him in his capacity as President and Commander-in-Chief.
He expressed immense satisfaction with the array of naval assets on display and the combat readiness of the Nigerian military.
