He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, Ekiti APC has keyed into NWC’s decision on the 10th Assembly leadership and the party in the state will remain committed to a united National Assembly.
He added that only unity can ensure progressive development of the country, so they will not settle for less.
His words, “In Ekiti State, we are committed to a united National Assembly and we are also committed to the decision of the National Working Committee of the APC with respect to the zoning and you can attest to the fact that all the senators are here with me just to have dinner with Akpabio.”
“We are supporting his aspiration as directed by the national body of the party. We are in this together, we are not only supporting, we will identify with him publicly and that is what I have done.”
“All Ekiti senators and the leaders, all the former governors – we are in the same boat. We respect the sanctity of the party and we appeal to all contenders to also follow the advice of the National Working Committee.”
“It is only when we are united that we can ensure progressive development of the country. Senator Akpabio has been called to serve and he needs all support and we shall give him that.”
