President Muhammad Buhari has appointed a former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, as the National Coordinator of the Presidential Support Committee.
The Akwa Ibom State Coordinator of the committee, Pastor Mfon Okon, who disclosed this on Thursday in Uyo, said four prominent indigenes of the state had also been appointment into the committee.
The appointees are Lady Valerie Ebe, a former deputy governor of the state as chairman, National Advisory Committee; Senator John Akpanudoedehe, national director, Planning and 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.
Okon said the appointments were a reflection of the confidence President Buhari reposed 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.
