Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, Chief Godswill Akpabio, has assured PDP members in Kwara State that the party under the leadership of President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Chairman, Dr. Adamu Mu’azu, would reclaim its stolen governorship seat from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking yesterday at the Unity rally of the party in Ilorin organised to welcome some defectors from the APC, Akpabo, Governor of Akwa Ibom State, noted that what the people of Kwara State need is not change but real change which only the PDP can bring.
He commiserated with the people of Kwara over the calamity which befell them during the last Sallah celebrations in the home of an APC chieftain, praying for the repose of their souls.
Akpabio, who was accompanied by his governor-colleagues to deliver a goodwill message to the new members, said: “With the turnout we have witnessed here today, it clear that come 2015, the people of the state will come out en masse to install the PDP at all levels of governance just like you did in 2011. Kwara since the days of our late Baba (Dr. Olusola Saraki), has always been playing national and not regional politics which the APC wants to impose on you. We are here today to join you to say no to oppression and intimidation. We are here to declare freedom over the state.”
According to Akpabio, “Let it be known to you, the people of Kwara State, that all the projects and good things you have seen in this state is done by the PDP-led administration and not the APC.”
Akpabio describe APC as “a party that reaps from where it did not sow,” reiterating: “By the special grace of Almighty God and the leadership of our party, we will recover all stolen seats.”
