Senator Godswill Akpabio has expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari will record massive victory in Akwa Ibom State in the 2019 presidential election.
Akpabio, alongside Senator Ita Enang, Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), led a delegation from Akwa Ibom State All Progressives Congress on a courtesy visit to Buhari at the presidential villa on Monday.
While fielding questions from State House Correspondents, Akpabio, said Akwa Ibom State would be the first state to fall for the All Progressives Congress in 2019.
“I believe strongly in the saying, “res ipsa loquitor”, the act speaks for itself.
“From the calibre of persons you saw here today, the strength and character of the delegation, the capacities of the personalities you saw, it is clear that President Buhari will win Akwa Ibom State come 2019 general elections.
“He will not only win, he will win with a landslide; I can predict that the first state in Nigeria to fall to the APC in 2019 presidential election will be Akwa Ibom State.
“Nobody can controvert it; I say so with authority because I have the backing of my people to pronounce it – victory for APC and victory for Buhari come 2019 in Akwa Ibom State,’’ he said.
He said that he was the governor of Akwa Ibom State for eight years, and could not remember one kilometre of road that was done by the Federal Government in Akwa Ibom State.
