Today there is insecurity in the NorthWest, there is insecurity in the North central.
They stole our economy, don’t let them not steal your votes because they want to destroy your future. Don’t vote APC at all. Having said that one of our most important policies is to restore the economy. One other of my policies is to restructure this country. If we restructure this country Akwa Ibom is going to be more prosperous than it is today.
