BREAKING: Senate Presidency: Niger Delta Group Hails APC Over Choice of Akpabio; Says He Is Hybrid



The Niger Delta Renaissance Organisation NDRO has hailed the All Progressives Congress APC National Working Committees NWC over it's decision to pick Sen. Godswill Akpabio as the next President of the Nigerian Senate. 

In a press statement released by the socio political group and signed by its National Coordinator Comrade Nwokoma Messiah in Abuja the Federal Capital Territory FCT, said the former minority leader in the Red Chambers is a hybrid southerner who represents both the South South and the South East. "remember that Obong Akpabio is a hybrid person. Married to an Igbo woman and himself a very close neighbour of the South East, those in the south east region should not feel marginalised by his emergence rather he should be seen as theirs too"

The group said Akpabio as governor identified himself with the people of the south east and Nigerians from all works of life thereby turning the state to a political Mecca. It said aside other factors, Akpabio is a team player who will carry everyone along  and also forge a harmonious relationship with the executive and the green Chambers. 

"We congratulate the NWC of the ruling party for having a listening ear as regards the choice of Akpabio and others. It is a victory for hardwork and hopefully, our brothers in the South East will understand that national interest comes first. We also congratulate them for their understanding of the party's position even as we congratulate Nigerians for their support" the statement said.
