The former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, on Monday said that victory for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in elections in Akwa Ibom State was a “done deal”.
He spoke on the sideline of the inauguration of the APC presidential campaign council by President Buhari at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Mr Akpabio, who is the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State, said that apart from the massive infrastructure going on in the state, the APC campaign will be based on the integrity of the President.
He said, “I thank the APC family for giving us (Akwa Ibom APC) the opportunity to kick-start presidential campaigns in 2019 like what you saw, that shows indeed the future is very bright for the party, the prospects are very strong.
“We have a lot to campaign with, the social infrastructure, the SEED programme, a lot has been achieved by this President as never done before. In the past, we had so much of recurrent expenses but today, we are now seeing infrastructure on ground like the railways, the roads and other infrastructural programmes of this administration.
“But over and above that, we have so much confidence in the integrity of Mr. President and I think most of the campaigns in 2019 will be based on integrity. There is need for Nigeria to take its rightful place in the comity of nations. So for me in Akwa Ibom, it’s a done deal.” he said.
