Your Excellency, Senator Godswill Akpabio brought you to us and he handed over to us, and said that we must support you for 8 years.
“In 2023 it will be the turn of Uyo Senatorial district to produce a Governor. Because i know when it would rotate back to Ikot Ekpene Senatorial district in 2030, which would go to Abak Division, Uyo and Eket Senatorial district will support us” he added.
