Godswill Akpabio, a former minister of Niger Delta affairs, will be elected as a senator for Ikot Ekpene ( Ibom North-West) in 2023, according to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom.

The former minister entered the campaign for the party’s presidential nomination but abandoned it in favor of a contender.

Udom Ekpoudom, a former deputy inspector-general of police (DIG), won the Ibom north-west senatorial primary on May 27 prior to the presidential primary.

However, in the list published by the Independent Electoral Commission, Akpabio’s name was excluded.
