President Buhari has appointed former Senate Minority leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio as the National Coordinator of the Presidential Support Committee
Four indigenes of the state have also been appointed into the committee as revealed by Pastor Mfon Okon, the Akwa Ibom state Coordinator of the committee, who disclosed this on Thursday.
They include Lady Valerie Ebe, a former deputy governor of the state as chairman, National Advisory Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, National Director Planning & Strategy, Senator Aloysius Etok, National Director for inter-party affairs, and the party’s South-South zonal woman leader, Mrs Rachael Akpabio as the National Assistant Welfare Secretary.
Recall President Buhari’s campaign will kick off in Akwa Ibom.
Okon said the appointments were a reflection of the confidence President Buhari had in their ability to successfully work for his re-election in the forthcoming presidential election.
He called on the people of the state to fully key into national politics by supporting the All Progressives Congress to return the President, and ensure that the party wins Akwa Ibom State in 2019.
