Written by on May 27, 2022

Akan Udofia has won the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State among intrigues and power play.

Udofia, who was declared the party’s governorship candidate in the early hours of Friday, defeated seven other aspirants.

He polled 1227 votes to beat his closest contender, Senator Ita Enang who scored 34 votes.

He said: “As someone who has been blessed by God, my interest in the leadership of our state is clearly a function of my desire to give back to society through selfless and effective service.

However, the APC governorship primary was not without intense struggle and intrigues between the factions of Senator Godswill Akpabio and Senator John James Akpanudoedehe.
