Akpabio stated that he and other presidential aspirants would not have contested the APC presidential ticket if they had known about his plan to move the country forward sooner.
Senate President Godswill Akpabio has revealed that regrets contesting against President Bola Tinubu during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary.
According to Akpabio, he and other presidential aspirants would not have contested the APC presidential ticket if they had known about his plan to move the country forward sooner.
The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State noted that Lagos had been a development model for states in Nigeria, adding that the man that did the framework can also do it for Nigeria.
Speaking on Thursday at a reception in Tinubu’s honour by the Lagos state government, the Senate President said the president’s few decisions catalyzed the country’s growth.
The former Minister of Niger Delta reiterated his promise to work with the executive arm of the government to ensure that Nigerians enjoy the dividends of democracy.
He said: “With what the president has done in Lagos, we are assured that Nigeria is in safe hands.
“We didn’t know this was the plan you had for the country; we wouldn’t have contested with you at the party primaries.
“These few decisions you have taken have served as a catalyst for the country’s development.”
