Firm urges Buhari to ignore campaign of calumny against Akpabio

Sen. Godswill Akpabio, former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs says he joined the 2023 presidential race to consolidate the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari in office.

Akpabio said this at his declaration in Ikot Ekpene on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I, Sen Godswill Obot Akpabio, with great humility, hereby submit myself for your kind consideration as your next president. Therefore, my declaration is a trumpet call for unity and action.

“My dear compatriots, I am determined to pay the debt of gratitude I owe our nation for the opportunities to serve in high offices of public trust and am determined to let our nation drink from the deep well of experience acquired in these offices,” he said.

Akpabio lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for giving the opportunity to serve.

“I pay tribute to President Muhammadu Buhari for the patriotic work he has done as our President, he has given hope and direction to governance and fought corruption with uncompromising zeal.

“He has touched lives and empowered people, he has made great advances in agriculture, human capital development and indeed in all sectors of our economy.

“He has uplifted the integrity of the Nigerian nation. A lot can be said about all his amazing successes and achievements, but suffice it to say that I have come to perfect his marvelous works.

“Although absolute perfection belongs not to man nor to angels, but to God alone,” he said.

He urged Nigerian youths to ensure they maintain peace and support the good works of Buhari.

Akpabio said he believed in one Nigeria and that the country would shine one day as a strong nation.

The declaration was witnessed by APC faithful across the country.
