PDP stakeholders in Akwa Ibom pass confidence vote on Buhari

26 December 2015, 12:01

Uyo - Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders in Akwa Ibom North West Lo­cal Government Area have passed a vote of confidence on Presi­dent Muhammadu Bu­hari.

Sen. Godswill Akpabio (PDP-Akwa Ibom North West), made this known to newsmen after a stakeholders meeting held on Friday in Essien Udim.

Akpabio, who is Senate Minority Leader, alleged that some people wanted to use the president’s victory in the 2015 general elections to foment trouble in the country.

He said the country was already facing enormous security challenges, add­ing that it would have been unfortunate to aggravate the situation with another political crisis.

Akpabio, who is also the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom, said that the PDP stakeholders were in support of Buhari’s war on corruption and terrorism.

“My Senatorial District PDP stakeholders passed a vote of confidence on Mr. President and supported his anti-terrorism and anti-corruption war.

“We are urging him not to allow people to use his victory to foment trouble in the country so that Nigerians can have peace,” Akpabio said.

He said that the stakeholders’ meeting was convened to review the state of things in the senatorial district as well as Akwa Ibom and the nation.

Akpabio expressed optimism that the PDP would be victorious if a rerun of the governorship election was held in the state.

He urged supporters of the PDP in the state to remain calm following the nullification of the governorship election of April 11 by the Appeal Court sit­ting in Abuja.

Akpabio also wished the Akwa Ibom people peace, love and unity during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
