PDP stakeholders in Akwa Ibom pass vote of confidence on Buhari

pdp-logoPDP stakeholders in Akwa Ibom North West Local Government Area have passed a vote of confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari.

Sen. Godswill Akpabio (PDP-Akwa Ibom North West), made this known to newsmen after a stakeholders meeting held on Friday in Essien Udim.

Akpabio, who is Senate Minority Leader, alleged that some people wanted to use the president victory’s in the 2015 general elections to foment trouble in the country.

He said the country was already facing enormous security challenges, adding that it would have been unfortunate to aggravate the situation with another political crisis.

Akpabio, who is also the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom, said that the PDP stakeholders were in support of Buhari’s war on corruption and terrorism.

“My Senatorial District PDP stakeholders passed a vote of confidence on Mr President and supported his anti-terrorism and anti-corruption war.

“We are urging him not to allow people to use his victory to foment trouble in the country so that Nigerians can have peace,” Akpabio said.

He said that the stakeholders’ meeting was convened to review the state of things in the senatorial district as well as Akwa Ibom and the nation.

Akpabio expressed optimism that the PDP would be victorious if a rerun of the governorship election was held in the state.

He urged supporters of the PDP in the state to remain calm following the nullification of the governorship election of April 11 by the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.

Akpabio also wished the Akwa Ibom people peace, love and unity during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.

    I think democracy grows better this way by acting your conscience and convictions and not being fully manipulated by party,religious or ethnic regimentation

    What is PDP roguish vote of confidence for? When Akpabio clears himself of alleged corrupt practices, then he can talk about supporting anti-corruption war. Passing a senseless vote on confidence on Buhari won’t stop EFCC from following your case to a logical conclusion. If the killings in Akwa Ibom between 2007 and 2011 are investigated, would Akpabio come out clean? PDP passed votes of confidence on Obj, Yar’Adua and Jonathan while looting and other crimes were raging on.

  • Of course, after the elections, regardless of how rougish and thuggish the process was, we have to rally as a nation to move forward. That’s how it’s done in civilized democracy. Not the silly and stupid challenges by the “converted” democrat that we witnessed in the prior 3 presidential elections.
