Akpabio Eyes Abba Kyari’s Office


Reports and feelers from Uyo and Abuja have it that, after his loss at the just concluded National Assembly elections, former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio is making subterranean moves to clinch the plum and juicy post of  Chief of Staff (COS) to the President. 

A dependable source at the nation’s seat of power  hinted that the defeathered godfather of Akwa Ibom politics  in the past  48 hours has been reaching out to that are close to President Muhammad Buhari with the aim of talking the President to give the fallen Senator the plum post of the Chief of Staff to the President,(COS).

“After all, it was on the account of the president that Akpabio was summarily and round beaten at the polls”, the source added.

In order to achieve his ambitious aim, the former senator is deploying all arsenal in armoury including  religion and region as  factors  to impress it up on the President to see the need as to  why Akpabio should be the the COS to him

Akpabio is flying the kite that  the President should appoint a Christian from the South South into such a sensitive office, this in his opinion would ameliorate the current notion that Mr President is shielded by a brutal cabal from the North which  controlling the affairs of the nation and the notion that the President is a religious bigot.

And he , Akpabio is most suited for the job.

Akpabio is expected to seal the deal  on his appointment with President Muhammadu Buhari as the latter is scheduled to visit Akwa Ibom State on Monday on a thank you tour where he will have a town hall meeting with a cross section of people from all walks of life.

Credible information has it that  presidential advanced team have already checked into Bexco Hotel and Suites, 24 Abel Damina Avenue, Osongama Estate, in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

The other presidential advanced team scheduled to be in Imo State have moved over to Delta State in anticipation of the president’s visit.

The presidential source revealed that part of the Akpabio’s plan is to use the town hall parley in Uyo to instigate the audience to call for the redeployment of current top staff of INEC in the state, which should pave way for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to take over the oil rich state.

In the recent past, the deflowered Akwa Ibom strongman  had made similar inroad into the presidency during the Goodluck Jonathan era, bulldozing off the like of former Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, who eventually left the PDP in acrimonious circumstances.

Abba Kyari was appointed Chief of Staff to the president on 27th August 2015. He was preceded by Brig.-Gen Jones Oladehinde Arogbofa and Chief Mike Oghiadomhe, who both served under President Goodluck Jonathan.

However, it is left to be seen if the latest plot by Akpabio would succeed.
