Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio and wife, Unoma, were at the Independence High School, Ukana, in Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The exercise, was witnessed by the Akwa Ibom State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Ita Udosen among other members of the State Executive Council of the party.
Speaking shortly after revalidating his membership, in company with his wife, Akpabio called on old members and new ones in the state to troop out enmasse to register as members of the party so that they would have a say in what happens in the party in future.
“Today, I revalidate my membership with the APC, biggest party in Africa and people are asking me for the reasons and I gladly tell them that, I will revalidate because of the NDDC headquarters that will be commissioned after 25 years and the East West road that is cutting across Akwa Ibom State. I will revalidate and reaffirm my membership because of the zeal and patriotic desire of Mr president, Muhammadu Buhari, in developing Nigeria from where he met it”
He stated further that, the “APC is the only party that provides the platform for good governance. It remains the only vehicle that would deliver dividends of democracy to Nigerians. New members are welcome with open arms. Whether old or new, we all have equal rights and privileges as party members.”
