I’m now a pastor, says renowned Akwa Ibom opposition politician
“I have finally accepted God’s calling to preach salvation of souls through Christ Jesus, and to witness to the power of the Resurrection….”
Mr Udoedehe is one of the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom. He has contested for the APC governorship ticket in the state, at least twice.
Senator Pastor Akpan James Udoedehe
Mr Akpabio won re-election, but Mr Udoedehe almost lost his life when he and his campaign team were violently attacked in Ikot Ekpene, March 2011, by thugs suspected to have been hired by the PDP.
The former senator after his incarceration continued as a voice of the opposition politics in Akwa Ibom, while Mr Akpabio became a PDP senator, representing Akwa Ibom North-West.
Apart from his past representation of Akwa Ibom North-East in the Senate, Mr Udoedehe has served as the chairman of Uyo Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom, and as a minister of the Federal Capital Territory.
His supporters felt the appointment was humiliating, considering his reach in politics.
To foreclose any argument on whether he was still going to be involved in active politics, the former senator later issued another press statement through his media office where he explicitly said, “It should be noted that Senator Akpanudoedehe will execute his commission, alongside pursuit of his political aspirations, business interests, and other social endeavours, because he remains an active politician and a committed businessman.”Read more: Premium Times
