"In the 10th Senate leadership that will be led by Sen. Akpabio and Sen. Barau will foster development, progress, stability and unity of the country in the next dispensation."

Recall that Akpabio was selected by the national working committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the preferred candidate for the apex seat in the National Assembly.

Hon. Michael Agbor, the national coordinator of the GOA, disclosed that Senator Akpabio and his running mate Senator Jubrin Barau have the qualities required to foster legislative development, stability and unity that will help reshape Nigeria into a better place for citizens.

Meanwhile, Agbor revealed that the GOA would support Akpabion becoming the next Senate President of the incoming 10th National Assembly.

Agbor said:

"We the members of Team Godswill Obot Akpabio (GOA) after due consultation with our constituents across the six geopolitical zones of the country unanimously resolved and agreed to endorse His Excellency, Distinguished Sen. (Dr.) Godswill Obot Akpabio CON and Distinguished Sen. Jibril I. Barau for the 10th Senate leadership, 2023."

The 10th National Assembly has been billed for inauguration on Tuesday, June 13, and Senator Akpabio is in pole position to clinch the coveted Senate President seat.

10th Senate: Wike Finally Reveals Preferred Candidate For Senate Presidency

Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, on Tuesday, May 23, declared his support for the ambition of Senator Godswill Akpabio for the office of the senate president.

Wike said it is time for him to support Akpabio because the former Akwa Ibom state governor supported him when he first aspired for the office of Rivers Governor.

Wike also stated that he sees nothing wrong in the ruling party picking who it thinks can work with the president-elect as the senate president of the 10th Assembly.
