Akar said that is not all, saying that the fact that Akpabio has been honoured with chieftaincy titles in all parts of Nigeria is a clear indication of his open-hearted nature, reach and penchant for interacting as well as connecting with others across religious and ethnic lines.
“These attributes place him way ahead of other aspirants as the man who can unify the nation and galvanize citizens to thrive in these tough times,” he added.
He went further to state that while Akpabio was governor of Akwa Ibom State, he operated an open-door policy where Nigerians from all walks of life and ethnicity benefited from his uncommon transformation agenda.
