A group of sons and daughters of Ikot-Ekpene Senatorial District, Ikot-Ekpene Patriots in the United Kingdom, has endorsed the Akwa Ibom State governor, Chief Godswill Akpabio, to vie for the senatorial seat of the zone after the expiration of his tenure in 2015 so as to bring his wealth of experience to bear for the benefit of Nigerians.
The group, which held an endorsement rally for the governor in Manchester, described Akpabio’s achievements in the last six years as exceptional, saying he has brought “unparalleled development” to Akwa Ibom State, a reason for which they said made them to endorse him for Senate.
According to the coordinator, Mr. Francis Okoemu, a security and terrorism expert based in Manchester, Akpabio as a result of his unprecedented achievements in education, health and infrastructural development in the state; is the best governor in Nigeria, noting that Akwa Ibom people were lucky to have such a governor.
Ikot-Ekpene Patriots noted that Akpabio was too young to retire from politics and that he needed to serve Nigerians more. They called on the governor to ignore threats and intimidation from the “under-performing” current holder of the Senate seat, Senator Aloysius Etok, by vying for the seat.
“Akpabio, we believe in you: we are eternally grateful for the uncommon transformation that has occurred in Akwa-Ibom and the developmental strides taken under your governorship. We support you without reservation,” they said.
