ANOTHER LOOK AT AKPABIO’S DEFECTION

There is no bigger dicey time in a democracy than the period of transition. This is when true patriots are separated from power mongers and desperados.
In Nigeria, during such a season, the most important institution is the Independent National Electoral Commission which must given all it requires to conduct a free and fair contest .

Currently, the #242b INEC budget is before the National Assembly awaiting legislative approval but Senator Saraki’s egoistic and unexplainable suspension of the activities of the Senate has thrown the Nation into avoidable constitutional crises.

Senator Godswill Akpabio’s defection and subsequent attempt to reconvene the Senate is a display of unbelievable sportsmanship, patriotism and boldness in choosing national interest over his personal political relationships. We should be grateful to God for giving us a man bold enough to take steps that ensure the 2019 elections hold as planned.
