The governor will complete his second term in 2015.
Mr. Akpabio stated this on a special edition of ‘Sunrise Daily’, a programme by Channels Television beamed live from Uyo, the Akwa Ibom capital.
The governor is currently on his maximum second term in office.
“Initially, I thought of retiring quietly back to my village and from politics completely after my tenure during which I have brought uncommon transformation to Akwa Ibom in the last six years.
“But there have been pressures by my people who are yearning for quality representation based on service. I was compelled to reconsider my decision and yield to the people desire by opting to run for the Senate,” Mr. Akpabio said.
