Tinubu’s Emergence Is A Confirmation Of Nationwide Acceptance - Godswill Akpabio

Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and Senator-Elect for Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has reacted to the emergence of APC’s Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the president-elect. Reacting to Tinubu’s victory, Akpabio said that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu emerging the President-Elect is a confirmation of his nationwide acceptance. 

In a statement made by Akpabio through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Jackson Udom, in Uyo on Wednesday, he said that the victory of Tinubu in the keen presidential contest demonstrates his acceptance across the length and breadth of the country and beyond. 

He states that the former governor of Lagos State is a tested and trusted person, stressing that with the way he ‘called the shot’ during his time as a governor of Lagos State, he is confident that he will do more as the president of Nigeria. 

“The victory of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as declared this morning by the Electoral Umpire, is a confirmation of his nationwide acceptance.

“He has the ability, capacity and the required experience needed now to take this country to the next level in both national and international affairs,” the statement read in part.

Early Wednesday, the 1st of March, the INEC declared APC’s Tinubu president elect having polled a total of 8,794,726 votes.
