In his remarks, the State Chairman of APC, Obong Stephen Ntukekpo said Sen. Akpabio has stabilised the legislative arm of government to entrench synergy with other arms for a better Nigeria.

Describing Godswill Akpabio “as not only being a pride of Akwa Ibom, but also a worthy ambassador”, Ntukekpo said the Senate President has fulfilled his promise of connecting the state with the centre, through the various engagements of Akwa Ibom citizens in top national MDAs and parastatal.

I aspired because I knew that the Akwa Ibom State you built is not the Akwa Ibom we have today. I saw my aspiration as opportunity to restore the lost glory of Akwa Ibom State, OBA said.
