A collective known as the 21st Century Youths of Niger Delta and Agitators with Conscience (21st CYNDAC) has vehemently denounced the recent calls for the resignation of Senate President Senator Godswill Akpabio, asserting that he is shielded from any political weapon aimed at his downfall.
Expressing their stance on this matter, the group, in a statement released on Thursday, was led by General Izon Ebi. The statement strongly condemned the voices demanding Senator Akpabio’s resignation, categorically affirming that such efforts will ultimately prove futile in light of his unwavering resilience.
In response to the ongoing protests by Niger Delta women orchestrated against the Senate President, the group swiftly dismissed the legitimacy of these demonstrators. According to 21st CYNDAC, the protesting women, allegedly representing the Niger Delta region, are purportedly not indigenous to the South-South geo-political zone of the nation.
In explicit terms, the group contended that those advocating for Senator Akpabio’s resignation directly oppose the collective well-being of the Niger Delta populace. The statement underscored the belief that the Senate President’s commitment to the region remains steadfast, making him a target for unjust and politically motivated attacks.
In its impassioned declaration, 21st CYNDAC rallied behind Senator Akpabio, asserting their unwavering support and faith in his ability to withstand any challenges thrown his way. The group reiterated its conviction that the resilience of the Senate President shall prevail over any adversarial maneuvers, emphasizing the unity and strength of the Niger Delta community.
The statement titled,” No weapon formed against the Niger Delta shall prosper.” reads, “The attention of the 21st-century youths of Niger Delta and Agitators with Conscience [ 21st CYNDAC ] have been drawn to a certain publication that flew across some Nigerian newspaper and social media space, where some women that were sponsored by bitter politicians, disguised themselves as Niger Delta women and are shamelessly calling for the resignation of the Nigerian senate president Mr. Godswill Akpabio.
“Honestly speaking, that joke was not funny to all of us from the Niger Delta region. There are things you don’t play with, and one of them is what this so-called women’s group just did. Our happiness is that the enemies have, through this single move, shown our people that they are not sleeping. Thanks to them, we are better prepared.
“The result of our thorough investigation about the matter showed that the women group was not from the Niger” Delta region. Again, there were no ripples generated by the purported speech made by the Senate President because Nigerian people are well educated to understand that the person of the Senate President is a man with no dull moment.
“He is always jovial and cheerful and exhibits a great sense of humor when addressing people. That quality contributed to his emergence as the senate president of our great nation, Nigeria. He was the governor of Akwa Ibom state for good eight years, and no media room recorded any act of wickedness from him against his state.
“Recall that during his time as the governor of Akwa Ibom state, he had no comparison among his peers. His works are speaking for him. We are sure that he will not disappoint the Nigerian people, as he did not disappoint the people of Akwa Ibom state. Senator Godswill Akpabio is a man that maintains quality and real-time in all his service delivery. Governors always recounted their achievements before leaving office.
“Sen. Godswill Akpabio’s achievements were too numerous to count when he left office. He has been tested and trusted as the best that we have for the job. Casting aspersions against our senate president is like choosing evil over righteousness. No political weapon formed against Sen. Godswill Akpabio shall prosper.
