Former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has commended the Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Nsima Ekere, for the huge support he has rendered to the ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom State.
Speaking at the APC expanded state caucus meeting in Uyo at the weekend, Akpabio commended the NDDC MD for promptly donating computer laptops to enhance the exercise when the turnout of members and would-be members became overwhelming.
“I want to thank His Excellency, Obong Nsima Ekere, for the very, very serious assistance he gave for the membership registration and revalidation exercise,” he said. “He played a very major role in the exercise. Party is about sacrifice.”
The former governor also hailed the NDDC boss for facilitating and encouraging the reconciliation process he initiated to bring back members of the former APC State Executive Committee (SEC) who sought to form a parallel SEC of the party.
Akpabio charged other leaders of the party to support the registration exercise which he described as a census of voters for the 2019 elections.
The chairman, Atuekong Don Etiebet, who presented Akpabio to the caucus members, said APC members were proud to have such a political juggernaut in their fold, stressing that the state was now 100 per cent APC.
He urged all aspirants to elective positions to work hard to win the forthcoming primaries since there would not be any form of imposition of candidates.
