Senator Godswill Akpabio, former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, has stated his commitment to assisting President-elect Bola Tinubu in his new role.
According to reports, the aspirant for Senate President made the promise when he met with a group of young professionals led by Senator Akpabio Vanguard on Thursday in Abuja.
Akpabio stated that he is willing to assist Tinubu in developing good policies for the country’s development as well as laws that will have an impact on the lives of Nigerians.
Akpabio stated that if elected Senate President, he will work with the presidency to eliminate poverty, insecurity, and other social vices.
With over 23 years of public service experience, the former governor promised to build youth and women of integrity with whom society can reckon.
Akpabio, who will represent Akwa Ibom North-West senatorial zone, thanked the group and promised not to disappoint Nigerians who believe in his leadership abilities.

A group of over 40 professionals from various fields described Akpabio as the face of the youth and the underprivileged in the next dispensation.
The professionals, led by Islameen Etudiaye, Chief Executive Officer of TechBuildaz, and Jeffery Udende, Chief Executive Officer of Troika Tech, believe Akpabio has what it takes to lead Nigeria’s 10th Senate as President of the Senate.
According to the group, Sen. Akpabio deserves to be Senate President unopposed because of the massive votes cast in the South-South zone, particularly in Akwa Ibom state.
The young professionals described Akpabio as the only candidate who can supplement the president-elect’s efforts when he takes office on May 29.
