Thousands of supporters of the Young Democratic Party, YPP, governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom, Senator Albert Bassey Akpan, on Thursday stormed the streets of Uyo to welcome the politician back from prison..
Edujandon.com recalls that on December 1, 2022, an Uyo Federal High Court, led by Justice Agatha Okeke sentenced the Senator to 42 years imprisonment for corruption.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, arraigned Albert for receiving exotic cars worth N204m from a contractor of the Akwa Ibom State Government, Jide Omokare.
However, a Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Wednesday granted bail to the Uyo Senatorial District Senator.
The court granted Akpan bail on health grounds pending the determination of an appeal.
Speaking while welcoming Akpan alongside his teeming supporters, his running mate, AIG Asuquo Amba Rtd, said his freedom is a prayer answered.
Also, the wife of the Senator, Mrs Imaobong Albert while speaking noted that Akwa Ibom belongs to them all and that they have a right to choose who they want to govern them; assuring that her husband will ensure the welfare and well-being of all Akwa Ibomites.
Equally, the chairman of the campaign council, Sir Emem Akpabio, and the Director General, Pastor Sunny Ibuot, urged the people to ensure the manifestation of God’s will by voting for OBA on Election Day.
On the ground to receive Senator Akpan were his wife, Pastor Mrs Imaobong Bassey Albert, his running mate, AIG Amba as well as leadership of the YPP in Akwa Ibom.
