His Excellency Senator (Dr.) Godswill Akpabio, CON is the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
In 2015, he made history by becoming the Minority Leader of the 8th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria even though he was just elected into the Nigerian Senate for his first term. Through his leadership, he provided some stability to Nigeria’s nascent democracy.
However, in the overall national interest, Senator Akpabio on August 8, 2018 resigned his position as Senate Minority Leader following an imminent movement from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC.) With this singular act, he has been hailed as a nationalist as the party, through his leadership gained a strong foothold in Akwa Ibom State and the entire South-South, Nigeria.Chief Dr. Godswill Obot Akpabio CON is a Nigerian politician and is known nearly by all households in Nigeria due to the good records he has made for himself.
He is a native of Ukana, a village in Essien Udim, Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria and a South South's political Mouthpiece.
Dr. Godswill is a lawyer too by profession and his Alta Mata is University of Calabar,
He was born on 19th December, 1962 to the family of Late Chief Obot Akpabio.
He served as Akwa Ibom state governor from May 29, 2007 to May 29, 2015 and presently the Minister of Niger Delta.
Now, see why Dr. Goswill Akpabio is a Saint in Nigerian Politics:
Chief Dr Godswill Obot Akpabio CON is one of the rare leaders of our time, whose his developmental manner awards him accolades.
Akwa Ibom road under construction during Akpabio's first tenure.
When flyover was under construction still during his tenure.
Akwa Ibom state before he became a governor was a no go area but when the saint - Akpabio came, the story automatically changed from bad to good.
This is Akwa Ibom state as at today.
Also, before his emergence as the Governor, Akwa Ibom children were popular house maids and servant in Lagos , Abuja , Rivers , Cross Rivers , etc.
But, he put such concept to a befitting end and declared free and compulsory education in the state and the interesting part is that the free and compulsory education wasn't for Akwa Ibom children alone but for any child in Nigeria and other part of the World.
Nevertheless, Akpabio his a man of good heart, all the people that were not financially blessed were given jobs of different kinds so that the use that to improve their livelihoods.
Consequently, he did mass employment of graduates into Secondary Schools in his state during his reign as a governor.Moreover, as if that was not enough evidence to prove him a Saint, he became the first Niger Delta Affairs Minister who demanded for Forensic Audit so as to set right the mistakes cum errors of the past leaders o the ministry, at least Africans do say, 'he who lives in a glass house should not first and throw stone' if he didn't know that he's a Saint, he wouldn't do that.
It's obvious that by their fruits we Shall know them, a man that is well received by the people should not be considered evil due to some unhealthy news perpetuated by his enemies. Akpabio due to his love for the masses defected before the presidential election to the All Progressive Congress-APC, so that the federal power can be bestowed on the people of his state too.
He has addressed the issue of sexual harassment promoted by his rival Mrs Nunieh, that he wasn't the one she is talking about because he did not sexually harassed her.
The above and many evidences have licensed Akpabio to be a Saint known by all, even the EFCC officials, he was once investigated by the officials but when the unearthed the true value of him, the read speechless, do you know the value? It's being a Saint.
