on

Godswill AkpabioGov. Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom has promised the national leaders of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that his state would vote the party 100 per cent in the forthcoming elections.

Akpabio made the promise while addressing the PDP presidential campaign in in Uyo on Friday.

He assured that President Goodluck Jonathan that no amount of propaganda would prevail against him.

“In Akwa Ibom, we will give you 1.67 million votes as valentine gift. Nigeria will not go backward. In the midst of distraction, you have done well in human empowerment, transportation, education and agriculture.

“You have proved that you read to Ph.D level by your action. Education matters”, Akpabio said.

The South-South Coordinator of PDP presidential campaign organisation, Gov. Liyel Imoke of Cross River, said Jonathan administration had moved Nigeria forward.

Imoke said PDP governors in the South-South zone had performed creditably well and would deliver PDP in the coming elections.

He assured the president that he would win the zone massively.

Dr Amadu Ali, the Director-General, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, called on Akwa Ibom people to drive away any party that was not PDP.

“PDP has done very well. Goodluck has refurbished the moribund railway and undertaken educational reforms”, Ali said.

He urged the people to keep faith with PDP in order to benefit from agriculture that would be the target of revenue generation for the next administration.

The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, told women that PDP was the answer to their problems.

She said that the incoming PDP government would give women 50 per cent appointive offices, having fulfilled 35 per cent earlier.

Jonathan urged the women to have faith that the next governor of Akwa Ibom would carry them along.

“Be prepared to follow Goodluck and Sambo on Feb. 14, our valentine day”, Jonathan said. (NAN)
