Former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will still produce the state’s governor in 2019.
Akpabio made the remark during a recent rally in honour of his successor, Udom Emmanuel in the Ikot Ekpene area of the state, The Nation reports.
“When I came to you in 2006, I told you Godswill should be done and you the people of Akwa Ibom agreed with me and Godswill was done. In 2011, I said Godswill should be done again, you agreed with me and it was done,” Akpabio said.
“In 2015 I pleaded with you to allow Godswill to be done again and again, you all made it happen. I will come back to you in 2019 and demand that Godswill should be done again, and again and again and I know it will happen.
“I also acknowledge the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Gen. Buhari, for not meddling with or interfering in the Supreme Court judgment which has been the most transparent in recent times,” he added referring to the apex court’s recent confirmation of Emmanuel’s victory in the April 11, 2015 elections.
Akpabio is currently the Senate Minority Leader and represents the Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District.
