President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reportedly withdrawn his support for former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio’s candidacy for the Senate presidency in the 10th National Assembly.
This announcement, however, stirred dissatisfaction within some members of the party, leading to protests and condemnation.
Emerging reports suggest that senators, particularly from the South West, are planning to hold a meeting to reconsider their stance on the Senate’s leadership selection.
According to sources that spoke with Vanguard, Tinubu has reportedly withdrawn his support for Akpabio, former governor of Akwa Ibom State, following the advice of his political allies.
Tinubu, determined to lead a corruption-free government, emphasized in his inaugural speech the need for effective and efficient anti-corruption agencies.
In response to these developments, a group of senators are arranging a meeting for Thursday to decide their next course of action.
