As the intrigues towards the 2019 Uyo Senatorial District elections continue to gather momentum, stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have continued to align their interest and support towards a more acceptable candidate even as the State Governor and the leadership of the Party in the State have pledged to stick to the principles of zoning for political offices.
Feelers in some quarters has it that the present Senator representing Uyo Senatorial Distrct, Mr. Bassey Albert(OBA) is already running from pillar to post as the zoning fomular is totally out of his favour as Ibiono Ibom nay Itu/Ibiono Federal Constituency has already served two terms where he is completing the one term served by his predecessor, Senator Ita Solomon Enang.
OBA is also said to be having sleepless nights as a cerebral lawmaker, Barr Usenobong Akpabio is said to have joined the race who according to reports, has the backing of the Party and powers that be in the State added to that fact that the position has been zoned to Uyo Federal Constituency with Uruan and Ibesikpo Asutan to present aspirants.
Some Party stakeholders who spoke to our reporter described Barr Usenobong Akpabio who had served for two terms representing Uruan State Constituency, in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly as a stabilizing force and being very acceptable in the local government areas that make up the Senatorial District.
A government house source who also spoke to our reporter said that Barr Akpabio has the backing of the State governor as according to him, the governor was not comfortable with OBA, him being loyal to former Godswill Akpabio hence his determination to ensure that he dosent return to the Red Chambers
