Ahead of the 2019 general elections, Governor Emmanuel has commended the Senate President, Bukola Saraki on his decision to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which he said is his real home.
He stated this on Friday, at the Government House Exco Chambers, during a solidarity visit on him by the Senate President.
He thanked Senator Saraki for his show of love through his visit to the state, asserting that the APC was a mere alliance, as against the position of the PDP as a firmly rooted family with the genuine concern of the wellbeing of Nigerians.
He also charged the Senate boss to remain focused, saying “If you don’t have anything to offer, nobody will attack you.
“You are being tackled because you are about scoring a goal. So don’t take that for granted, count it all for joy and it’s all a blessing.”
Gov Emmanuel assured that Akwa Ibom is PDP and remains unshakened despite developments in the polity in recent times. “I also want to assure you that the party is 98% intact.”
“You have fought a good fight. Ride on. You have the support of the masses of this country.” Governor Emmanuel assured.
