In order for the All Progressives Congress to be successful in the upcoming general elections in 2023, Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former minister of Niger Delta affairs, has urged party leaders and stakeholders in Akwa Ibom State to put their differences aside and work together.
He stated this on Friday while speaking at the party stakeholders meeting in Uyo. According to him, “there is actually no problem in the state chapter of the party, stressing that what you are seeing today is a storm in the teacup.”
“Today’s meeting”, the former governor of Akwa Ibom State said, is enough to settle all grievances and bury our differences. There is no issue at all and there is nothing we cannot settle.”
He added that the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, intervened and resolved disputes surrounding the party’s governorship candidate in the state of Calabar, and blamed the party’s problems on a lack of respect for those who deserve it. He stated that such can be replicated in the Akwa Ibom State by ourselves.
Speaking further, the National Vice Chairman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, stated, “I will contribute my quota to the success of this presidential rally coming up next year.
Akpabio praised the leadership of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and expressed his congratulations on the progress he has made so far in office, particularly with the publication of the initiatives the ministry has undertaken that have changed the face of the nation.
Present at the meeting was Chief Sunny Jackson, Chief Sam Ewang, Mr Akan Udofia, and Senator Effiong Nelson among numerous others.
