Senate Leadership: Akpabio’s Victory Hard-fought Battle Of Political Strategy – Media Team


The Team Akpabio Media Campaign has said that the emergence of the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State as the 10th President of the Senate, is another huge platform for him to showcase his uncommon skills, in his usual tradition, of surpassing targets.

This was as the Team described his victory at the election of the Senate leadership as a hard- fought battle of political strategy, mastery and networking that recognises distinction, class and content.

Coordinator of the Team, Prince Kassim Afegbua in a congratulatory message, said that Akpabio is a man of quality and not quantity, as others who tried to upstage the applecart, by sheer politics of money, ethnicity and parochialism were wont to provoke.

Afegbua in a statement on Tuesday noted that the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly stood out in his robust engagement with critical stakeholders in the onerous journey to becoming the number 3 citizen of this great nation.


He further said of Akpabio; “You reached out to your colleagues, made them to believe in your capacity to lead such an August body, the Parliament of our great country. You exerted pressure, burnt midnight candles, persevered with utmost resilience to breaking the ice. And now, you have conquered.

“This is another huge platform for you to showcase your uncommon skills, in your usual tradition, of surpassing targets.

“You were an uncommon Honourable Commissioner, uncommon Governor of Akwa Ibom, uncommon Minister of the Niger-Delta Affairs, uncommon Senator in the 8th Assembly, and now another opportunity to become uncommon Senate President.

“We thank God for the glory. We give God, the creator of heaven and earth, all the glory and adoration. As a team player, I trust in your ability to rally round the Senate in the greater task of generating laws for the good governance of the country.

“As an ambassador of the South-South geopolitical zone, we are proud of your success. We identify with you that Senators from other geopolitical zones across the country, saw in you, the quintessential traits of a consummate politician that can lead the Senate in the 10th Assembly.

While congratulations the new Senate President, Afegbua urged Akpabio to be magnanimous in victory, and see the challenge of political opponents, as a required democratic process that helps to enrich our democracy.

The Team counseled Akpabio on the need to carry everyone along and launch his skills to show his usual grit as he set out for another uncommon leadership of the 10th Assembly.
