2023: Akwa Ibom Group Urges Akpabio To Contest For President.
A group affiliated with the National Transformation Movement has urged Sen. Godswill Akpabio to run for President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the upcoming 2023 general elections.
According to the organization, having traversed the country’s six geopolitical zones, Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom, is a man of competence who can lead Nigeria to its intended goal.
The group’s view was stated in a statement published following their meeting in Uyo on Sunday.
Mr. Ubong Idemudo, Mr. Victor Bassey, Mr. Daniel Ime, and Dr. Imo Effiong all signed it.
The group stated that Akpabio’s major successes as governor of Akwa Ibom state are still fresh in their minds, and that if given the opportunity to run Nigeria, he will perform even better.
According to the group’s communiqué, Nigeria needs a president like Akpabio, who is detribalized in all aspects of his effort and could maximize the agricultural sector to defuse the threat of food insecurity if elected.
“Nigerians are desirous of a man that can restructure international trade policies in favour of a common man in numerous uncommon ways.
“Nigerians are contending for an engine in a man that can design monetary and fiscal policies that will encourage foreign direct investment and in turn create employment using green accounting measures to sustain the green economic environment.
“We are after a man that has the zeal to interpret the root cause of insecurity in Nigeria for effective crisis management for sustainable public order,” the statement said.
