The Senator representing Akwa Ibom North-West constituency and former Minority Leader of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio has expressed optimism that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would win the presidential election as well as other positions at both state and national levels.
He spoke when he fielded questions from State House correspondents at the end of the maiden meeting of the Council, which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Thursday.
Akpabio said: “I will say that APC is very poised not just to undertake very smooth and scintillating and enjoyable campaign but also very poised to win the next election.
“We have very few weeks to the general elections, first the presidential election and we are quite ready.
“As you are aware, so far so good. We are running on the basis of our first term performance.
“The achievements of Mr President are all there for people to see and I think the entire country is quite excited, quite unlike our colleagues in the PDP who do not seem to have anything except to criticise, attempt to run campaigns of calumny and false accusations against us in the APC.”
