Akpabio begs for forgiveness, regrets imposing Emmanuel on Akwa Ibom as governor

Senator Godswill Akpabio has said he regretted imposing the Akwa Ibom State governor, Udom Emmanuel, on the people of the state.

The former Senate Minority Leader, apologized before a crowd at Ikot Ekpene Plaza.

He said Emmanuel was the greatest mistake he made in a hurry, and asked to be forgiven.

“Udom (Emmanuel) is a mistake that must be corrected in 2019. All hands must be on deck to ensure that the mistake is corrected for a people-oriented leadership under the ruling All Progressives Congress at the centre.”

According to him, “Emmanuel’s administration has failed the people,” forcing him to take decisive actions to correct the anomaly for posterity to be fair on him.
