The Minister  of the Niger- Delta  Affairs, Senator  Godswill Akpabio, on Wednesday  has announced  his resignation  from the cabinet of  President Muhammadu Buhari and also announced that contrary to the belief  in some quarters , he was  still in the  presidential race.

President Buhari had on Wednesday  afternoon  ordered ministers  in his cabinet  who had  political ambition to resign from the government .

As a result of  Buhari instruction, there  were  reports in the media that Akpabio  had dropped  his presidential ambition, preferring  to be in Buhari’s cabinet.

However, Akpabio , speaking through his  Chief Press Secretary , Jackson  Udom, on Wednesday  evening, disclosed that  contrary to the report , he actually  resigned  from the  cabinet  in order to  pursue his  presidential ambition.

According to  the statement by Udom, ’’Our  attention has been drawn to  mischievously  written news stories  making the rounds  that the  leading presidential aspirant , Senator  Godswill Akpabio , had purportedly  withdrawn  from the presidential race. This is a joke  carried too far’’.

‘’This is  certainly  the handiwork  of those who are scared  of contesting  against Senator  Godswill Akpabio.”

‘’Senator  Akpabio has resigned his  appointment  as Minister , Niger Delta  Affairs Ministry and will soon  submit his nomination form at the international conference  Centre, Abuja , in line with  his party’s guidelines.

‘’For those  behind this  lies and falsehood ,we advise  that they  learn to live  with the reality , that Senator  Akpabio is fully  in the race , not only  for the All Progressives  Congress(APC) ticket, but to emerge  the next democratically  elected president  of the Federal Republic of Nigeria’’


Recall that’ The Interviews Nigeria’ reported yesterday, that, it was not certain whether Godswill Akpabio has really resigned his appointment as Niger –Delta Minister. However, as the events has unfolded itself ,Senator Godwill Akpabio is now in the Presidential race with great alacrity as confirmed by his Chief Press Secretary , Udom.
