Sen. Godswill Akpabio has said that God would expose those that “fraudulently” denied him the chance to return to the National Assembly to represent Akwa Ibom North-West senatorial district.
He singled out Mike Igini, the INEC resident electoral commissioner in Akwa Ibom State, for blame, saying he allowed himself to be used to perpetrate massive electoral fraud.
Akpabio, who spoke during an empowerment programme in Ukana, Essien Udim LGA of the state, said that Igini was the “most compromised electoral officer in Nigeria and should not be allowed to hold public office”.
However, he urged his supporters not to lose any sleep as he did not lose the election but was denied the mandate freely given him by his constituents.
Akpabio said, “Please nobody should have any headache, nobody should cry because there is no need. You know your senator cannot lose election because we were all there.
“But many of them thought they can go and write whatever they like and even cancel what you won. I have never in my life experienced a resident electoral commissioner like Mike Igini and my message to him is that his hypocrisy will be exposed.
“There is no way you can come into Akwa Ibom and commit that kind of electoral fraud you committed then you go back to Channels Television and sit down and talk as if you are a pope.
“Very soon the world will know… All the materials we are recovering everyday will expose you.
“Just yesterday, the police arrested people carrying materials from where they voted and were trying to sneak into INEC. The other day, they arrested someone with card readers. He was frantically calling and trying to say that they were used for training three months after election so that they will continue to manipulate.”
