Akpabio comes from Akwa Ibom North West and is part of the All Progressives Congress (APC). He had to beat another APC member, Senator Abdulaziz Yari from Zamfara North West, to get this position.

I’m ready to do my best for our country,” Akpabio said.

The choice was made by the 109 Senators. They all came together to pick the main leaders of the National Assembly’s upper legislative chambers. The competition was tough, but Akpabio came out on top.

I stand by my nomination. If you don’t agree, go to court,” he said.
