PDP will win the entire South, including Lagos – Akpabio

The Chairman of the PDP Governorship Forum and Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Chief Goodswill Akpabio, has postulated that the Party will win elections in all states in the South of the country, including Lagos.

Governor Akpabio said this on Monday at the PDP governorship forum meeting in Lagos.

Akpabio who briefed journalists before the commencement of the meeting, said the PDP would win on the first ballot because it was a national party.

“Forget the propaganda you see. We are on ground and we believe PDP will win,

“PDP is the party to beat. We are not panicking because we have presence across 120, 000 polling units across the nation,

“We are in Lagos because Lagos is a strategic place. We have to re-strategize to ensure free, fair and credible elections,

“We came to brainstorm on how to win the election” he said.

He used the medium to assure Nigerians that the party would make sure that the elections were credible.

“We intend to discuss everything concerning the election. We have a responsibility to ensure the stability of Nigeria and Nigerians because we are the party in power,

“PDP is not callous to create problems in Nigeria” Akpabio added.

Also speaking at the forum, Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State, urged INEC to be sure of the efficiency of the card reader before using it.

“INEC said they could not use the card reader in the Osun election because it was sensitive but between the national election and Osun election, which is more sensitive,” he queried.

Governors who were present at the forum were Liyel Imoke of Cross River State, Seriki Dickson of Bayelsa State, Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State and Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State.

Governors Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti, Ibrahim Dankwabo of Gombe, Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna and PDP governorship candidate for Lagos State, Mr Jimi Agbaje were also present.
