Akwa Ibom as a battle ground for presidential race 2019

The PDP’s  dominance  in Akwa Ibom State since 1999 has come under threat  following  the defection of former governor Godswill Akpabio to the APC.

For now, neither  Muhammadu Buhari nor  Atiku Abubakar can lay claim to the state as his stronghold.

A political analyst  in  the state, Mike Etim, says  Akpabio remains the strongman of Akwa Ibom politics, having been a commissioner and governor, in spite of the attempts by the ruling PDP to unpopularise him.

According to him,   the senator’s contribution to the development of the  state cannot  be ignored. He believes Buhari can ride on  Akpabio’s popularity in the state to win.

The  APC  Campaign spokesman  Eseme Eyiboh said  the party was poised to take over the state. He said the APC would win the  presidential poll  convincingly.

He said,  “The  number of people who have defected  from the PDP  to  the APC include former  commissioners. The  election will  not be determined by the number of  billboards.”

Our correspondent could not reach  the PDP’s spokesman in the state Ini Enemobong for comments as of the time of filing this report.

However, a member  of the party, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Governor Udom Emmanuel’s achievements would guarantee victory for Atiku Abubakar.
