The immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom state and senate minority leader, senator Godswill Akpabio yesterday used the occasion of the state anniversary to express appreciation to God for sparing his life after he was involved in a car accident on the 1st of September this year.
Senator Akpabio who also joined in the dakkada campaign, specifically thanked Governor Udom Emmanuel and the entire people of the state for their prayers and applauded the governor for his numerous achievements within his first hundred days, a feat he said he could not achieve, and warned against the pull down syndrome.
Akpabio who also cleared the air on the recent invasion of the government house by the men of the Department of State Security, said rumours that money was found at the government house were only acts of detractors in the state to disrupt the peace that has so far been enjoyed and warned that no one should try to oppose himself on people as leadership is only given by God.
On the issue of why the 20th anniversary hospital is not running, senator Akpabio said equipment at the hospital are up to date and explained that the Medical and Dental council of Nigeria is yet to complete proper registration and documentation of medical doctors willing to work in Nigeria and assured that within one month, the process will be completed.
He therefore called on the public to avoid misleading and misinforming the uninformed public about activities of the government as the government is always working for the good of the people and called on them to support Governor Udom Emmanuel.
