Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC), was in disarray, adding that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was at this time strategising on how to, not just win election but ensure that they win in peace.
This is even as he has expressed confidence that the PDP would win by over 90 per cent in the coming elections because it was now taking the campaign to the people and making them to see the achievements of the party in various sectors so far.
The governor also said the PDP was ready to engage the opposition party in an issue-based debate whenever they were ready to do so.
Governor Akpabio said despite the propaganda by the opposition party today, Nigerians were more aware about the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan in particular and the PDP in general.
Akpabio, who is also the chairman of the PDP Governor’s Forum, while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Jonathan and other party stakeholders said, “It is very clear now that the opposition is in disarray. I am sure you have all seen that.
Propaganda can only take you up to a limit after which the reality becomes the norm.
“Today, Nigerians are much more aware of what the PDP administration under President Goodluck Jonathan has been doing. I want to commend not only the President but also members of the Federal Executive Council, who have opened the eyes of Nigerians to know that so many things have been done in the different sectors of the economy.
“It was as if people did not know these things because the opposition took over and they kept saying PDP was doing nothing. Yet, in four years of the President’s tenure, he has achieved far more than any President had ever done in the history of our country.
“We are very proud of the achievements of the PDP, not just at the federal level but also at the different states. If you want to assess state-by-state, pick the opposition’s best state in Nigeria and compare it with the best state of the PDP, you will see that we tower above the opposition in all ramifications.
“The next election, particularly the elections of March 28 will be about performance and issues. Nigerians have since gone above the level of tribalism and ethnic or religious differences. God put us together in this country and He knows that we are a multiplicity of religions and tribes.
“God brought us together, so we believe in the unity and oneness of this country.”
