Senator Akpabio begs Akwa Ibom APC stakeholders to bury differences

Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, has urged party leaders and stakeholders in Akwa Ibom State to put aside their differences and work together to ensure the All Progressives Congress wins the general election.

Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, has urged party leaders and stakeholders in Akwa Ibom State to put aside their differences and work together to ensure the All Progressives Congress wins the upcoming general election in 2023.

While addressing party stakeholders gathering in Uyo on Friday, the former governor of Akwa Ibom State said, “there is actually no problem in the state chapter of the party, stressing that what you are seeing today is a storm in a teacup.”

The former governor of Akwa Ibom State stated that “today’s meeting” would be sufficient to “settle all grievances and bury our differences.  There is no issue at all and there is nothing we cannot settle.”

The former Senate minority leader said that the party’s problems stemmed from people not giving respect where it was due. He suggested that the party take a cue from what happened in Calabar, where the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, intervened to resolve disputes over the party’s governorship candidate in that state.

He claimed we might do the same thing in Akwa Ibom State.

The National Vice Chairman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council further added, “I will contribute my quota to the success of this presidential rally next year.

In his speech, Akpabio praised the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs for his progress so far in office, particularly regarding the disclosure of the projects undertaken by the ministry.

“I was quite impressed when the minister published the projects embarked upon by the ministry. It didn’t matter whether they were projects embarked upon by Pastor Usani or myself. I must commend him for that and will extend to him all the support he will need to succeed,” he emphasised.

Ex-Representative Hon. Iquo Inyang spoke on behalf of the women and praised Senator Akpabio for his leadership, saying that no one can deny the enormous success he has made in altering the face of the state.

She pleaded with party leaders to clean up the House so the party could win the upcoming elections.

The many notable people present at the meeting are Chief Sunny Jackson, Chief Sam Ewang, Mr Akan Udofia, and Senator Effiong Nelson.
