The Nigerian Ambassador to Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, John James Usanga, has congratulated Senator Godswill Akpabio on his emergence as the President of the 10th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. In a statement made available to journalists on Thursday, Usanga described Akpabio’s emergence as well-deserved and victory for Party supremacy.
According to him, “Akpabio is a very audacious, visionary and loyal Party man with uncommon leadership qualities and a readiness to lead a united, vibrant and cohesive National Assembly that will further heighten the tempo of the renewed hope mantra of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
He urged all the elected Senators, as the representatives of the people, to cooperate with Senator Akpabio on the enormous task of bringing enduring positive change to the lives of Nigerians.
He said, “I proudly extend my warmest congratulations to Senator Akpabio, our former Commissioner, Governor, Senate Minority Leader and Minister, for his remarkable emergence as the Senate President of Nigeria. His election to this prestigious position is a testament to his doggedness and unwavering dedication, as well as his unparalleled track record throughout his distinguished political journey.”
According to Ambassador Usanga, “Take it or leave it, Akpabio has demonstrated without doubt, his steadfast commitment to public service. He has consistently championed the causes that matter most to the people. Using Akwa Ibom State as a blueprint of his capabilities, we need to remind ourselves of those days of his Uncommon Transformation as an Uncommon Governor when he turned things around for our State and succeeded in setting a standard of performance in office for his predecessors and successors alike.
“With a proven record of tireless dedication, he has earned the trust and admiration of both his constituents and fellow lawmakers. With his wealth of experience, astute political acumen, and a deep understanding of the complexities of politics and challenges faced by our nation, I have no doubt in my mind that Sen. Akpabio will lead the Senate well. In fact, he has already started,” he added.
While expressing his unwavering support for Akpabio as he assumes his new role as the Senate President of the 10th Assembly, Usanga expressed his desire to see him use his position to unite Akwa Ibom. He encourages him to remain committed to working hand-in-hand with the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Senate to advance the shared goals of renewed hope of progress, prosperity, and the welfare of all citizens of Nigeria. He prayed for Akpabio, that the Almighty God will grant him uncommon wisdom and protect him on this delicate national assignment.
