Why Tinubu Will replicate Lagos Development at Federal Level – Akpabio
As the ground well of national acceptance and goodwill continues to mount for the incoming administration of President Bola Tinubu, Godswill Akpabio, former governor of and Senator-Elect for Akwa Ibom State has added his voice to the army of Nigerians who have expressed confidence and hope in the President-Elect and his leadership promise for the nation.
Akpabio said President-elect Bola Tinubu is “God’s own choice” for the leadership of the country.
The popular politician spoke on Sunday when he was hosted by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos state governor.
The former Niger Delta affairs minister was nominated by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the position of senate president while Barau Jibrin was recommended as deputy senate president.
Akpabio said senators-elect for the 10th assembly believe in the vision Tinubu has for the country and are willing to offer their support.
He said if elected as senate president, he will deploy a “national approach” to lawmaking in the red chamber.
Akpabio said the nation’s economy is in need of serious development, adding that the administration of Tinubu will replicate the development in Lagos at the federal level.
He said the 10th senate will collaborate with the new administration to bring the dream to fruition.
“We want him to replicate what has happened in Lagos in the last 24 years of democracy to cover the rest of the country.”
