When I assessed the APC, I noticed that we needed peace and unity in the party and since the Northern Governors in their show of patriotism, have decided that power should come to the south, I had to give my support to one of the founding fathers of the party and a man with vision and mission, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu,”
According to the former Senate Minority Leader, ” the people of Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District will support their son, Senator Godswill Akpabio in 2023.”
