“We have finished elections and politics, we are now into governance. The governor of the state must touch you, because he is the governor of all the people in the state irrespective of political affiliation.

The former Governor assured his constituents that his current position as the Senate President would be used for the development of the State in collaboration with the President and the Akwa Ibom Governor.

He said: “This Senate President is not the one that would be fighting the state government. I will collaborate with President Ahmed Tinubu, I will collaborate with Governor Umo Eno, to make the state better for us all. We cannot be out of government for a long time. You have to go to a government that carries you along.”

Akpabio promised to work for his constituents and Nigeria with all his strength, noting “as the President of the Senate, I am for the Southern region and the entire country.
