The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio has mandated the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Akwa Ibom State, Stephen Ntukekpo to set up a reconciliation committee to address the differences rocking the party in the state.
Akpabio who disclosed this on Friday while addressing a Stakeholders’ meeting in Uyo, vowed to reunite the party so that it would be positioned to take over the state in the 2027 elections.
He also called for unity, stressing the need for party members to remain firm on the party they belong.
He said, “We will make sure that APC in Akwa Ibom is one, we will give people the option that either you belong to us or to them. There should not be any in-between. We are going to resolve all the issues in APC, we are going to advise some people you can’t be here and there.”
“I’ve mandated the Chairman of the party to set up a reconciliation committee in the state, we have to bring our members together. If we are united, there is no barrier that we can not break.”
“Look at what the other side did; they gave President Tinubu 120,000 votes but Uyo and Eket combined ended up with only 40,000 votes” he added.
