Ekpeyong, a former deputy governor who defeated Akpabio, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the rerun election that was held last Saturday said Akpabio “did nothing” while he was governor.

“I’m ashamed of him. If he was investing, go to Akwa Ibom; there is nothing. When you talk of uncommon, what is uncommon or is it because he is uncommon failure?”

“The fact that he became a governor was by accident and that is because our electoral process is porous. Thank God I have come to meet the discussion on the electoral act amendment because I am going to contribute,” he said.

He also accused Akpabio of trying to subvert the rerun poll, saying; “He felt he could go to the election without resigning, then he flew a kite that he is not contesting but he failed to know that I am veteran in this game. ”

“We went to the election and I defeated him, I had 19,000 plus votes and he had 6,000 in his local government.”
