The former Senate Minority Leader, told his adherents of his acceptance of their call for him to represent them at the Red Chambers of the National Assembly saying, 

“I came here today to formally inform you that I am on the ballot, as your Senatorial Candidate on the platform of the APC. Let me assure us all that our governorship candidate, Obong Akan Udofia, will also be on the ballot. 

“Therefore, go all out and campaign for all our candidates because the party has all it takes to win election from the national to the states,” Akpabio said.

“Tinubu stands for good governance and performance. The presidential contest is for somebody with the capacity to deliver and Asiwaju Tinubu represents that.”

The former presidential aspirant, thanked President Muhamadu Buhari, for his commitment to the security of the country with the recent release of the kidnapped railway passengers and the commissioning of the second Niger Bridge before the end of the year.

“The storm is over. I was not seen in the state shortly after the senatorial primaries of June 9th 2022, because I went into the trenches to secure your senatorial ticket. By the grace of God and your support through prayers, I am today, on the ballot as your senatorial candidate.

“Let us all return to our polling units, wards and local governments to canvass support for all our candidates at all levels. Let us also open our arms to all our members, who are aggrieved one way or the other. We need every member on board because our party is large enough to accommodate everyone,” he said.
